E1A6: Thing 402, 404, 406, 409 are flagged to count as secrets, but they're monsters (2161: PaintJerk). Same for things 405, 407, 408, 410, 411, 1274, 1275, 1276 (2162: CannonJerk). That's 12 secrets that cannot be "found".

Launch Base also has several secret triggers that are flagged to count as secret. Also, the associated item that triggers them are flagged as secret too. The result: each item counts as three secrets (one from flag, one from trigger, one from trigger's flag) and picking them up gives you two secrets.

In Fizzopop Factory, one oozi gun is flagged to count as secret. Problem with that is that you're going to miss it if you already have that gun and full ammo.

i wish items wouldn't be tagged as secrets, really. the Goonades in E1L3 you have to pick up to get the secret message (apparently that got fixed in the 3rd beta, but it doesn't seem like it did at all), and the Happy Sphere in E1L4 you have to pick up to get the secret message, not merely getting to the area. more often than not, it makes me forget i even did pick up the secret because i don't need the extra health ATM.

  hall in E1A8.
- Changed green building interior a little to make the windowed outside look
  like it made sense with the inside on E1A8.
- Lowered pop vats outside of yellow building in E1A8 so the player didn't
  hurt themselves dropping off of them.
- Changed lookout tower in E1A8 to have bars at the top so the player doesn't
  fall off, plus an indication of its purpose in the map (exit lock).
- Changed the ColorCube on the dropping platform to the west to two Oozi
  Jerks.
- Changed positioning of a crate stack in E1A9 warehouse that would have
  trapped the player if they fell into it.

  shrugs off explosions. (1x -> 2x)

- Slowed Cannon Jerk cannonball (20 -> 18) and decreased its damage (7 -> 6).

Not really. If you can split them up into horizontal strips, I have a program that will do that.

i believe Spricer does that, cutting sprites out of a sprite sheet into individual ones. the problem is that often enough, small details just slightly away from the main sprite will be cut into a new sprite instead of being part of it, but you can just use some other program to cut out the problematic ones in that case.

i prefer neither. because after done with ripping 'em with spriting programs such as spricer, the images' size also names are become randomized. so it takes a lot's of times to rename and put 'em and match their offset in slade. and i know slade or slumped can set their offset automatically, but the result is not satisfying, some of frames are bit off or too far away. so i'm prefer the mspaint instead; going to put those sprites into a transparent background boxes that lil' bit larger than 'em.
