Sorry I couldn't make a better description of my question. I don't quite get the "theme" bit though, but it doesn't matter anymore. Please ignore

Ensellitis (Level 11 Sensei) @ 5/25/2007 23:27
no, that doesnt make sense. for 1, we use themes here, people have different backgrounds, 2.  why not just make it trasnparent?

Stickman (Level 6 SWAT) @ 5/25/2007 00:18
Hello. Just wondering if anybody nknows the RGB values of the transparent background thse sprites will be displayed upon. (Hope that make sense...)

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 5/21/2007 09:53
Wait.. 60x120 MINIMUM!? That's a really tall sprite guys (for a minimum). The examples are massive but they arent that tall.. I guess i'll just add some flailing ribbons (c).

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 5/21/2007 09:50
