Hi there Ric..

It's at the humble start stage.. it's been a good while since
I've been productive.

Indeed.. quite a bit I'd say. ;o)

They are rather chunky SVG's, aren't they? ;o)  Would you believe
that I worked them out and I typed in their co-ordinates by my own
fair hand?!  Easily adapted though.

My sister got the the art/graphic design skills genes dammit.
What I got, was a big fat confidence building *zero* ( 'seems to have no real 
talent' ) in art at school!  My crime?  Screwing up the perspective in a 
drawing homework task.  None of the, here's how you should have done it 
friendly chat.. simply the put downs
and the implied threat of corporal punishment for apparent sloth
and incompetence. Hey ho, those were the days!

So, as a result, while my agile brain sees, and my wild wild
imagination conjours up fantastic images,  the hand-to-eye leaves a lot to be 
desired.  Cheers Mr Crappy Art Teacher, cheers.

Why not!  The more the merrier.

Actually,  someone did do me an off-the-cuff sprite sheet, which I'm sure he'll 
happily donate, however, their manipulation within
swfc/as2 gave me so much grief I gave up and hand crafted a few
SVGs to save time.

> Chris I appreciate your efforts...

Thanks. Like I said Ricardo, it's a start.  There's a lot of tweaking yet to be 
done, and more code here which implements
other stuff.  It was getting out of hand - over 2500 lines -
so, I've left it out for now, while I tidy what is already
there.  It didn't help that I jiggered version one, and had
to start again.  That brings back more 'fond' memories.. good
old Sir Clive's ZX81 and it's wobbly 16k Ram pack.  One nice
little wobble ( without the necessary tape save ), and bye bye
large portion of z80 assembler!

Cheers for the support.
