This file has 4 tiles... bmps that are meant to replace the fire tiles in the original Dink.

There is no readme with this file to explain that.

These are an example of scrolling computer wiring imagery. You will have to edit the hardness as they replace the fire pit and thus aren't suitable if you want Dink to walk on the scrolling imagery.

As an example of another way of doing a scrolling background they are great.

What they don't reveal is that the first 50 by 50 square actually doesn't animate. I discovered this in PQ when I did my own animated tiles. You need to create another section within the tile bmp to use for this. If you want take a look at PQs animated tiles.

Hopefully this error (which is due to the original coding) will be fixed now the source has been released.
