    I've been having fun editing Dantes FLA mods for my own use, but I'm trying to do this with other mods by converting the SWF to FLA with JPEXS. This conversion works and I can make the edits I want in adobe animate, however they dont load in the loader. What could I be missing here?

    You're probably missing the necessary ActionScript. If you're using a vanilla import, then you may not have applied the appropriate instance names to your shapes.

    Either run through the tutorials to learn how to put together a mod, or share the FLA file so that we can check for omissions.

    Hmmm looks like you're right, when I hit F9 there are no scripts in there. The scripts show up in JPEXS before I do the import, so it looks like the scripts aren't making it through the exporting process somehow. I would upload the file, but theres just nothing in there besides the mod shapes and whatnot.

    Do I just need to add the necessary lines of script under main? Or do I need symbol definition too?

    If it's a Loader mod, then main will suffice.

    If it's a vanilla import, then you need some scripting in main and a few lines in the shape definition also. You can find examples in the SDTModding.zip template.
