Making Platforms
Although I've yet to create a game that would use it, my mind turned to the creation of platform sprites, tonight.

I've spent a good few hours making this little tool, so hopefully people can make use of it.

Essentially you run it, then hit R to keep generating different coloured platforms.

It's nothing special, and can certainly be improved upon (if you can make head/tails of the sourcecode!)  but for the mostpart I'm happy with how it turned out.

.. I think..  But like I say, I've yet to actually DO anything with the results.

That'll be a task for another day.

You can download the tool  Right Here.  And be sure to let me know if you make use of it.
