what i’m drawing is loads of sprites, and they are editable, so i can’t just bang a standard load of draw commands. its a sequencer, with many editable pages.

i guess that a no then?

Yeah, you can record everything to a coll, and then dump the coll out
on load. Since everything is a message, just record the messages.

its a damn pain though, let me tell you :)

Why not write a javascript to do this? Would be much easier than
having to deal with the ideosynchrasies of coll no? Just make an
object that’s a sprite using JS’ pseudo-OO notation:

function lcd_sprite(command_list)



lcd_sprrite.prototype.draw = new function();

in this case, command_list would be a list of messagges to build your
sprite. This would be easy to extend and add functionality to and
everything would be saved in a text file.
