I haven't even tried it yet, but that screenshot is amazing. I'm really glad I happened to check the forum when this was on the front page.
I was perusing the files and noticed G256FONT.DAT and that it only has one number per line which makes it twice the size it needs to be. You should probably compress the file and just use a string of hexadecimal digits, although I couldn't find anywhere in the program where that file is even used.
I love the look of your dialog boxes (and UI in general). I've always wondered how you make them work so well and look so good.
I like the icons and fonts.
The color sliders look really good and work fine for me. (I didn't notice them not following the mouse perfectly.)
Suggestions (with in mind that the program is awesome):
Make the menus persistent (don't close them until you click somewhere) and after opening one menu, close it and popup the next one when the mouse moves over another.
Make Ctrl+A select all. I scribbled on it then wanted to delete it and start over so I tried Ctrl+A, Delete but it didn't work.
Make flip horizontal and vertical flip the selection and not the whole image.
Add a way to edit across all frames, for instance, "Oh shit, I gotta move every character in my 145-characters-so-far font one pixel to the left... Oh sweet, 'Select-On-Frames'!"
Let us select colors 220-255 in the color palette box, just not edit them. "Ooh, 230 looks good. Hmm, it's not quite right. Oh, I can't edit that one, I'll set a different one, but what's the RGB of it?"
Make the color sliders adjust only according to the mouse's X coordinate position, so even if the mouse goes a little under the box, the slider still follows where I drag it.
Editable size images... A max of 120x90 (or whatever it is) is fine, but not being able to make it smaller could be annoying.
Bugs (oh no,,, I broke your program):
(How do you paste an image here? I screenshotted the owned interface.)
I found a couple bugs with the color editing. If you drag a slider then move the mouse around, like over the color scroll arrows they respond and really mess stuff up. I managed to edit colors 220-255, by clicking them after dragging the slider and moving the mouse over to the color scroll arrows, and blanked out the UI.
When do the sounds OhOh and tick play?

|* I should have a 32 bit version soon. That eliminates console color changes.||on Apr 7|
|Update, PhyloGenesis...||on Apr 7|
|quick note||on Apr 7|
|Of course! Never occurred to me -- (more)...||on Apr 7|
|* You can make the _MOUSEINPUT loop into a SUB. The program can run the outer loop.||on Apr 7|
|Good idea...||on Apr 7|
|_MOUSEINPUT just makes sure any new changes are not missed since the last loop exit.||on Apr 7|
|So in effect...||on Apr 7|
|* Yep, but you could miss changes using Absolute because QB code is slower.||on Apr 7|
