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

no, that doesnt make sense. for 1, we use themes here, people have different backgrounds, 2.  why not just make it trasnparent?

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 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
