This VB library aims to make it simple to add fast, animated graphics using transparent sprites,
something which is either missing or dismally slow using VB's standard methods. The source code
provides a complete screen saver, and a simpler (and somewhat smaller) sample which animates a
large number of asteroids around a non-firing, invunerable spaceship. These demonstrate how the
sprite library can be quickly incorporated into an application.
Transparent bitmaps are not only used for games or screen savers; Windows uses them extensively
for icons and also the ImageList common control has built in functions specifically for
creating transparent bitmaps.
