No, that should have worked fine... I'm not on a machine with Fusion just now but I'll take a look at the MFA you posted later on.
The problem is you only had 1 flame and lots of ships
I'm sure there is a smart way of coding it but here is my take on it
I just edited the sprites in an external image editor where i put the flames behind the fighter, saved 4 versions (one for each flame animation frame) and imported them into the fighter animation

Thanks jn2002dk. The best way is the way you did it in an external editor.
It's funny thou, I recreated the scenario in a new scene with the spaceship and adding the flame behind it. It works for one ship but when I go in to the event editor and create the ship randomly on the y-axis and at random times, the flame sprite animation only works for a second or two and then stops.
That's because when you create ships randomly you still only have one flame
When i ran your example file the flame worked on a given ship until a new one was created, then it would jump to that ship. It's set to always follow the ship but when there are more than one ship it jumps to newest one each time a ship is created
Creating each ship with it's own flame animation bypasses all of this
Ah, thanks for the explanation jn2002dk. I was wondering what was happening and why. I do understand that the flame should be with the ship sprite thou. Thanks again!
