Well, I finally spotted and fixed another bug I found when I thought I had fixed them all. This bug took a lot of time to kill, probably at least a few hours of yelling and screaming at the computer. Lots of times I've done that and thought I'd cancel the whole project because I wasn't able to fix things like I want them to be. All this talk about bugs makes me think it'd be neat to have a bug as an enemy. So I'm going to do away with the one I created that looks like a goomba and make a new bug sprite. The one was facing towards the player so it doesn't really fit the side-scrolling platform image. I need to make a bug one facing left. Any good sprite artists around here? If so I need a one-color maximum 8x8 sprite that looks like a bug that's facing left. I don't think I could figure out how to animate it, though. I tried to animate something other than Giuseppe but had to give up because I just couldn't make it work.
