Thanks, Darkstar; you're quite correct. Going forward from this point, further discussion of custom bullet sprites belongs in the Guide.
BTW, thank you for linking to the Guide itself. :) Too many people foolishly ignore it.
All GSB1 modders:
Right at the very top of this forum, there is a special "sticky" thread named the GSB Modding 101 Guide. It's super-easy to see, so there is no excuse for not reading it. Because this forum for GSB1 Gratuitous Modding is a nearly uninhabited "ghost town", everyone with a modding question would be wise to read that guide before asking their questions. This is not merely a polite request from the site leadership to the public.
For more information, check the new P.S.A. (Public Service Announcement) I've just created for this subject.
Now returning back on-topic to the GSB1 Modding Cult.
I am not one of those who ignores guides. In fact, before i quit it was one of my beloved most consulted sections of the forum. But i completely forgot about it lol. That happens when I stay away for 4 years lol.
About the topic itself, i could start posting my current mod in here, but my plan was to do it for GSB2. Meaning, that if someday clifski makes the modding in GSB2 more friendly and allow using custom elements without restrictions, i will probably will move the mod to GSB2.
If GSB2 was as modding-friendly as GSB1 is there will be no motive at all to keep modding for gsb1. Theoretically GSB2 will be exactly as GSB1 but better, with improved graphics, more special effects and ideal to make total converison mods. Remaining here will be pointless.
But until that time for GSB2 arrives.. (im afraid it doesnt look too good) GSB1 is the only one to mod for. Nobody moved to GSB2 because honestly the gameplay itself is not much better than GSB. If i move to GSB2 it would be only because of the modding possibilites. The people who left GSB1 modding forums are not in the GSB2 forums. They just left..
So, should i post my mod and start the cult with another member? :s
