Editing VVVVVV's Sprites?
« on: August 09, 2011, 01:07:27 am »
Is there any way to edit VVVVVV's sprites? I attempted to edit them in paint, but it says my access was denied. I was going to turn the squares into fish. :'(

It wouldn't show up as fish in anyone else's game anyway. :-\

Didn't Terry say somewhere that editable graphics were at least tentatively planned? Or did I imagine that? (Not being sarcastic, I really can't remember if I read it, or just wished it really really hard  :vermillion: )

You should be able to edit the game's graphic's files with any paint program. Try using something else, maybe MS Paint doesn't support PNGs too well?

PNGs are all I use with Paint (or any other program, for that matter).

Gimp worked! I love it! Now, this is technically what my games will look like. (see Attachments)
