I haven't had the chance to look at 1.3 yet but I'm quite sure your able to build a spritesheet from the individual imagery easily enough. Like i said, I haven't took a look at 1.3 to see how adding them and what it entails, but it should be easy enough I expect.
@Shelley thanks for the clarification. I didn't realize you had already mentioned why it is no longer available as I didn't read the entire 22 page thread.
I did just start a new XF 1.3 forum just the other day and am using your smilies (great work!) and was able to create a sprite using http://zerosprites.com/ and then manually enter the sprite coords. Working great!
I went to try this and it loads up up fine but when I run the process to import the spritesheet I'm getting this error. Just wondering if you could shed some light what might be the cause of the error?
