To be fair, I did try. But when Google translated the site for me I didn't see anything about needing XP. I don't know. Because I don't think I would really consider making a game in XP, just because it's old, and probably far harder to work with than Ace. Guess it wasn't a total waste of time. I did learn a bit about spriting, but as far as a style to use, I'm back to the drawing board, 'cause I can't do sprite body composition to save my life.
Last year, I planted a bunch of spinach, and one plant wasn't doing well, so I transferred it to a separate pot. All its kin died while it hibernated over winter. Now it thrives. I've named it Prince Spinach.
