A beginner..Im doing a school map app.

First of all I have background with 4 buttons ( level3, level4, level5, level6)
I try and click all the buttons, normally after clicking 3 of it, the next one will crash.(each level button goes into a level map, whereby clicking the room image buttons, I will enter into the gallery-imageswitcher)

I have at least 5 imageswitchers in each level maps,so that about over 20 imageswitcher galleries overall.

I did all my stuffs using DRAWABLES instead of BITMAPS.. I have tons and tons of images (because its a school map, show all the photos in my school, and all those backgrounds and imagebuttons)

I did some research, and those who have problems are those using bitmap. Some of the ways that can be solved is system.gc();, and bitmap.recycle...(not so sure how to use it though)

In my main background - starttour.java




In my level 4.xml



In level4.java

oh sorry, the level in logcat doesn't tally to my level java file i posted here because I happened to use that logcat for that certain level when it crashes

But the error is the same, anyway.
