If you are having troubles designing your sprites directly in the
DASM source code, you might like to try out my PCX2GRP converter
program. It's a simple DOS command line tool that takes PCX files
in a certain format and extracts the graphics data into a text file
that can be included into your DASM code. That way you can design
the sprites in your favourite paint program, arrange them so that
the converter can easily read them, and then use the results in your

It's nothing special, but a bit easier then drawing them on paper
or writing them as binary numbers in the text editor. You can find
PCX2GRP at .
