Instructions

Let's start with opening up a graphical program and opening your used tileset in it.
I used The Gimp 2.6 and tileset Castle In becouse the gimp is freeware and easy to work with and the Castle In tileset has a nice, big mirror in it.

Open up gimp and open your tileset.

Could you post a demo for ppl who are lazy or suck at following instructions  :^_^':
Things I Hate

1. People who point at their wrist asking for the time... I know where my watch is pal, where the hell is yours? Do I point at my crotch when I ask where the toilet is?

2. People who are willing to get off their a** to search the entire room for the TV remote because they refuse to walk to the TV and change the channel manually.

3. When people say "Oh you just want to have your cake and eat it too". Damn Right! What good is cake if you can't eat it?

4. When people say "it's always the last place you look". Of course it is. Why the hell would you keep looking after you've found it? Do people do this? Who and where are they?

5. When people say while watching a film, "did ya see that?" No Loser, I paid $12 to come to the cinema and stare at the damn floor!

6. People who ask "Can I ask you a question?"... Didn't give me a choice there, did ya sunshine?

@Ryex : Ty ^^

@Cyclope : I could do that for them. Though, they will eventually need to learn follow instructions...  :P
I'll post the Demo later today including the modyfied tileset.  :)

EDIT : Posted the Demo, if there are any further questions, ask away.

This looks like a really good system. I just have one small thing to add to it.

A lot of charsets aren't symmetrical. If this is the case, the event will need a different graphic, or it won't look like a mirror image. To create the proper charset, first individually flip each character image (of which there are 16) horizontally. Then just switch the individual graphics for left and right. Save this new graphic and use it for the event behind the mirror.
I know, it's not exactly difficult to figure out, but some people might not think of it, or might not be able to figure out how to flip everything without a lot of confusion.

Add it to the tutorial if you want, or don't bother. Just thought I'd point it out. :P

I already thought of that, yes.

But its more like a add-on to the system than the actual system.

Maybe i'll ad how to do that later.
