I am tired of Earth. These people. I am tired of being caught in the tangle of their lives.

The reason why the ExFont icons look all weird is because they can now 16x16 pixel 32-bit alpha images. Above is the template if you're curious. This sheet will be built-in to the engine, but you can have your own sheet(s). I'm going to add a control sequence that changes what page of icons to use so you can have an icon for like every item skill and whatever.

That's pretty boss, wolfcoder.
Oh I know, I'll have a number after the dollar sign
$3a means use the icon two down and zero to the left on an icon sheet labeled 3.bmp or whatever (3.png, 3.gif, etc.). I need to cram more space into this so you can type the item name and fit it still. Because of spacing, you don't need to make a space after the icon.

"$2A Iron" for example could have a nice sword icon and then you'll know it's an iron sword.

$3200B is just as valid a sequence even if it is long, I won't cap a limit on icons. And don't forget in 20XX it follows control characters everywhere (except tempo commands).

Are you parsing strings like "$\v{n}A" just for good measure too?

(braces are meant to be brackets, RMN mistakes it for bbcode otherwise, it seems)
Think about what a control statement like that implies. It would actually be a little wonky to support that too, variable letters is more useful than variable pages of icons if I would implement this. However, I might implement this for allowing you to have an icon representing heroes (like in WeaponBirth) and a variable set to the leader hero and do micro face picture dialogs (like someone can talk and a short answer and you see the face of the people talking instead of just a name and a colon).

It'll be implemented by side-effect anyway though since I have to implement a resolution pass over the input string for anything that returns a number or string.
This is amazing. 16x16 icons is what I'm using for my CMS. Now I can use them universally :D
WolfCoder, you are wonderful >_>b

I'm also working on draw window, draw number, and other drawing commands so you don't have to use so many pictures.
This makes me want to use 2k3 again... So bad...
