Heh, glad I could provide an interesting reverse engineering challenge.

And thanks, Jon!

A lot of cleverness going on here. Had to study it under a microscope to figure out how it actually works.
<Edit> Or I could have read the summary, but that would just have been boring. :)

Excellent technique and incredibly crisp results.

Cheers again.

TheRyk - the sprite underlay is pretty essential for the crispness a few have commented on; it makes all the edges between black and white twice as smooth :)

Also, props of course to Paul Reiche III for the original artwork.
