SD: SpriteEdit

Hi everyone, you may remember me as the co-develepor of Zelda4 for the TI-85
ZShell last summer.
I, along with Chris Tossing, have created a new program for the PC (sorry, it
does not work on Mac).  The program is called SpriteEdit and it lets you
(duh..) edit sprites on the computer and then converts them into assembly
code.  It have MANY more cool features.

*****To download it, go to my webpage at: !*****
Then click on the link that takes you to SpriteEdit's homepage.

Welcome to SpriteEdit's homepage. SpriteEdit is designed to make creating
sprites for the TI-82, TI-83, TI-85, and TI-86 calculators easier. Here you
can find SpriteEdit executables for Windows 95/NT/3.1, the Visual Basic
3.0/4.0 support dlls, screen shots of the program, and a list of features and
future plans. 
SpriteEdit is designed for the average Z80 assembly language programmer for
the TI-80 line of Texas Instrument's programmable calculators. SpriteEdit can
be used to create sprites, or small pictures that can be drawn to the screen.
With the proper assembly commands, the sprite can be maneuvered around the
screen to achieve any desired affect. SpriteEdit is appropriate for all
levels of programmers, from beginers to advanced assembly game programmers. 
For more information about TI calculators, visit the Texas Instrument's
homepage. For information about assembly language programming and sprites,

calculator, go to Dan's Homepage.
