  15. Hey John,

    Can you show us how to edit sprites for Castlevania? When you open it in Tile Layer Pro, such as you did with Mario, the sprites appear to be much more disorganized and harder to make sense of. I'm trying to edit Simon and Dracula, but finding them and then putting them together doesn't appear as easy to do as Mario is. Thanks.
