    Try looking for SpriteLib in a search engine. It was an old free graphics lib made by Ari Feldman. It's kind of tough to find now but I think a few places still have the download available. It had some sprites for many different kinds of games. I think they were kinda silly, but they're better than anything I've made (and free). I've got the zip somewhere, I'll try and look for it when I get home.

    Um, tell me, is it legal for me to use the graphics from that site, taylorguitarman?
