Actually, you can download the editor (in a small zip file) and use it offline.

I'm in the process of hunting some bugs down (please drop me an e-mail if you find one! thanks! Smile) and after that I'll be implementing support for MSX2 sprites.

And of course, the code is GPL'ed.

It looks like a great script with plenty of editing possibilities and with some nice extra touches (those saveslots!) but....
I'm running firefox 1.0.7 atm and the grid were one should draw isn't square but looks like

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (15 instead of 16)

Changing the background color doesn't alter the latest two lines neither.
On which browsers is this javascript tested ?

David, I've sent you a more elaborate reply.

If any of you guys find the same problem, you could try this:
find the line 683 in the HTML source
"divgrid.style.width = divgrid.offsetHeight + 1;"

try incrementing the offsetHeight a bit more, like say:
"divgrid.style.width = divgrid.offsetHeight + 5;"

This will change the grid border, but it should be perfectly functional.

I've been testing the editor on firefox 1.5 and opera 8.5, both on ubuntu linux.

Thanks for testing it, please let me know wether the workaround above works for you.
I'm working on squashing this bug once and for all.
