Sprites and different formats?
I have a question that I have been searching for quite some time. Usually when I include sprites in my programs I do them from scratch. I mean I actually type them in number format into a two dimentional array. I know this probably sounds crazy to most, but it is the only way I know how. I have not been programming long, and have seen many sprite editors for download, but they always save the sprite as a strange file type which I do not know how to use. My question is, is there a Sprite editor that will created a sprite and give me the information for it in a two dimentional array. I mean actually give me the numbers. I have never used a file to load a sprite from, and I understand that is the way it is done. If anyone could shed some light It would be greatly appreciated. And also if you could let me know how to include sprites in programs the proper way that would be great.
