Sprite Painter
This is a visual utility to make sprites for graphical games using DATA commands. It allows you to click the pixels into a grid of whatever size you specify and save them as DATA statements into a file

Press the left and right arrow keys to select your color and paint in the squares with the mouse. It will then export DATA statements to a file that you can copy paste into your code.  Another nice thing about this utility is that it's scalable to any resolution, it plots the entire grid over the entire screen.

RE: Sprite Painter
ZPRDingo,

First, I would like to welcome you to our community.

Second, I really love the concept of storing the sprite in DATA statements so you can embed images into other projects. This is exactly what Dave (TheLastTrueGreatAmerican) and I did with our Zombie Adventures text adventure graphical game, which can be seen at http://www.thejoyfulprogrammer.com/qb64/...hp?tid=461. However, what I had to do was load a *.PNG file into QB64, scan all the pixels and turn the color info into DATA values. These DATA files are then save to a *.BI file for easy importing into QB64.

You project has so much potential and would love to see where you go with it.
