Sprite Construction Kit Homepage:
The Sprite Construction Kit is a program to put several images into a single file. You can also edit the images with a set of tools. You will find some Visual Basic sample code explaining to use the sprites in your Visual Basic game on my VB-page or download my sprite player example here.
I programmed the Sprite Construction Kit, because I wanted an easy way to create the sprite files for my game "winfighter". The program is freeware.

Download Sprite Construction Kit (without runtime files) 173Kb
If you downloaded a previous version of Sprite Construction kit, you do not need to download the runtime files again.

Known bugs:
- If the rotation function does not work right, try switching to a different screen-mode.
If you have 16 million colors it seems to work fine.
