Flip and mirror are handy to have, so welcome that. I often draw a character facing one direction because it was easier to draw then later decide it needs to face the other way to avoid programmatically flip it every time...but that may be more an issue fo*snip*

The other week I was doing another trawl through the net for interesting Mystery Boxes, but nothing I saw piqued my interest.
Instead, then, I've gone back in time, and resubscribed to the DegustaBox.

Drag is the move buttons. Instead of four separate buttons, have it as a tool, and drag the sprite around.
Flip/mirror/rotate are kinda redundant. I'll probably leave those out. If you need ''this sprite but flipped'' it's better to sim*snip*

Data -> ADPCM -> Data

OK, the best I have is the following image....

A drag tool? Is that with a selection area? You could maybe add a rotate selection? And undo!

I had not noticed the missing move buttons. I do use these.

Data -> ADPCM -> Data

16th May 2022

I've never come across ADPCM before now, but here's some assorted thoughts after looking at this...

It looks like ADPCM is a lossy compression format, so we shouldn't expect the final image to be identical to the initial image, as some data *snip*

The main GUI and the ''Image'' editor GUI are now streamlined and work via sub-menus, instead of having all the buttons sprawled all over the screen all at once.

It's RTD focussing on people, rather than timey-wimey. He's a very good writer of characters, though some of the best ''sci-fi'' in those first couple of seasons are very much other writer's doings.

I have an idea to check how well I should expect it to work, I plan to load the raw image data into cooledit, save it as adpcm, reopen it, save it raw, redraw in blitz. Then I should at least know if this test is even possible.
