Probably a mad question, but does anyone know if there's either a download for the original Dink graphics without any checkerboard shadows, or a way to automate the process of removing them?

Working on a sort of prototype of a thing but the shadows are causing issues and cba deleting them all by hand.

I've almost completed creating a tool to do this, would it still be useful? Presumably this ties into your unity experiments? Would it also be useful to put multiple images together into one giant image?

My guy, yes, it would be super useful! I've got a batch command setup which turns everything into transparent PNGs, but that was as far as I got. I've been stuck manually erasing the shadows so far and am nowhere near finished.

Won't need to turn them into a single large image unless it's able to make sure spacing is perfectly uniform between each sprite. I only mention this as Dink's punch sprites are different widths per frame which makes alignment in Unity more work than it should be.

Would transparent png shadows be nice?

Looks great. I'm working all weekend but will take a proper look once I get a chance!

I've had a chance to use it now and it works brilliantly. No issues that I've come across. Thank you so much!
