2008.12.24: switched some stuff around (put the color picker on the left side) and added batariBASIC generator code.

Old Stuff
  • add UI and passthrough for other things SpriteMan code can customize
  • Maybe add "LOADING..." at top, then remove once loaded... (fat page!)
  • reading in data as well....
  • help/acknowledgements
  • let frames have names, which should show up near the thumbnails and then in the output
  • visual indicator of current background frame for onionskin...POSTPONED
  • BUG: what happened to 'X' when rechoosing color?
  • BUG: frames not returning to right place after animation - have to revamp

  • (default white)
