Tip: When determining a time limit, remember that players won't be as familiar with the level as you are. If you normally complete the level with the timer around 100, others might run out of time on their first try.
A sprite insertion tool made to allow more dynamic sprite usage, space savings and more SA-1 compatibility when compared to old iterations.
Despite this, it is almost fully compatible with sprites written for older SpriteTools, save for the fact that Asar is now used as the assembler.
Detailed usage instructions, common errors and changes compared to older sprite tools can be found in the included readme.txt file. Version history can be found in changelog.txt.

Now with Lunar Magic 3.01 support and a lot more reliable. Other changes include:
Version 1.2.7 (Jan 13, 2019):
-(Tattletale) Routines ChangeMap16, ExtendedHurt, SubVertPos, SubHorzPos, SpawnSprite, GetMap16 and GetDrawInfo were updated so their top-most labels were removed and only sublabels are used within them to avoid issues with asar. Reported by DigitalSine.
Version 1.2.6 (Dec 30, 2018):
-(Tattletale) Fixed an issue with ChangeMap16 in vertical levels.
-(Tattletale) Fixed an issue with GetMap16 in vertical levels.
Version 1.2.5 (Dec 29, 2018):
-(Tattletale) Fixed an inconsistency I left in main.asm that would cause a half-state of the perlevel feature to be inserted. Without -npl this would cause the first shooter or generator to not spawn properly.
-(Tattletale) Perlevel sprite has been turned off by default.
-(Tattletale) -npl doesn't do anything anymore, but is still around so stuff don't break with it.
-(Tattletale) New flag -pl created so you can still use sprite perlevel feature.
-(Tattletale) Bugfix on the LM version detection code. Rude, rude mistake (didn't affect anyone unless you use lm 193 and 16x), unredeemable.
-(Tattletale) Fixed a bug in error handling for sprite per level below B0 or above BF.
-(Tattletale) CFG Editor now opens either cfg or json without changing file types in the menu (mask is *.json; *.cfg).
-(Tattletale) Fixed thwomp json mappings.
-(Tattletale) Donut Lift's code reverted. Now it should be working normally. I'm sorry I left a piece of test code there.
