It’s amazing how complicated these games are.  Right now it takes 2 minutes in Excel to load a 320 x 190 bitmap.  It takes 36 seconds to move Laura Bow once.  Whats complicated is how to control the priority numbers.  All of this is being done in the speakeasy scene with no added dancers, ziggy, or other npcs.  I need to adjust the ego priority but how do I break up the screen in conjunction with the objects in the room?  As she moves back (up) her priority should decrease but not so much that the piano or mic is in front of her. 
    Then add: scipt, sound, control map, timer sequence, more sprites, multiple ego views plus scaling, triggers… Wow this was much easier in Tomb Raider’s Level Editor.  LOL
