.SPRITE File Association 2

Sprite referenced by SuperTux, a sidescroller video game similar to Super Mario Bros; formatted as a text file and contains a set of actions for a character, including references to images files that make up the sprite.

More Information

Sprites are used to display characters and their associated animations. Actions within the sprite file are run when the user enters input (such as walking forward or turning right) or when certain events happen during gameplay (such as the player getting hit by computer character). By using sprites, simple bitmap images can be used to perform all the animations within the game.
