I'll stop spamming the list with this app soon, but I did want to mention very quickly that I added the ability to save out and read in player graphic files. It's almost usable now. :^)

The app is really quite simple when it reads in files, and this help you use it with existing code -- it reads every byte in the file and checks for # (ASCII) followed by %. If it finds that, it sees what the next 8 bytes are and turns "1" (ASCII) into a check and any other byte into unchecked. So you can cut and paste from a game and read that graphic in as well, as long as it's in 1's and 0's.

If you have any questions, give me a yell. Still at the following URL for now:
... but now that Apple's going to charge $100 a year for the site, I'll going to have to move the danged thing AGAIN in a couple of months.

Enjoy, etc.

PS -- Ron, I've actually got a decent hack that makes the app look a lot like the Mac version (requested (tongue in cheek, I believe) here: http://www.atariage.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=10696) on other OSs using a different Swing Look and Feel. I'll email you once I've got it written up; just a little tired now. The customer is always right! :^)
