Not in the most user friendly format, but still it's good stuff to learn. Helped me when I first did the scorpions for SOB.

It tells you accurately (I could find no errors) about what each line in the dink.ini file does. Especially covers the set_frame_frame (which is great for reusing bmps) and the set_frame_special.

What it doesn't mention is that if you use set_frame_frame to pinch a graphic from another sequence and then go and use SET_SPRITE_INFO on the new image the SET_SPRITE_INFO also seems to apply to the original bmp as well as the newly artifical one.

Also doesn't tell you exactly how to make an animated sequence which uses black as a transparent background.

Could've done with a few examples.
