This file is useful. It tells you how to change Dink's starting graphics and presents you with a view on using some of the other standard Dink graphics as the basis for a new main character.

The file got me thinking about doing such a DMOD - or using one of my graphics as a main character.

And the other point is that this file should probably be classified as miscellaneous rather than a tutorial. But that is not the author's fault.

What I felt was missing was a bit more detail about push (turning it off in the start file would be a good suggestion) dealing with crawling into holes (just have the screen fade down and then fade up like a standard warp).

Also a more comprehensive version should encompass using/creating your own sprites, but the author touched on this anyway.

So overall, I think 7.5 not bad for a rant.
