hello! sorry to bother you with this! I'm having some trouble with this tool when I actually paste the data into bitsy to place exits/avatars etc. 

The behaviour:
- if I press "play" (like the preview play) then the button changes to the stop button... but it never stops when I click it

- I can't place the avatar anywhere in a room

- the avatar paint is a bit glitchy - keeps displaying wrong colours, or showing an existing tile, and it changes when I toggle the grid view

- can't add any new tiles or sprites

thanks!!

hi!

do you completely replace the existing data in the editor with the generated data? if yes, i can see two ways this could go wrong. there is no player avatar in your data at all now (the avatar should always be `SPR A`) which causes bitsy to malfunction. you also need to replace the bitsy version number in the data header to whatever the current bitsy version is (it was a bad idea to generate the header here at all, i should remove this to avoid confusing people, sorry)

i hope this helps!

That helps so much, thank you!!! ahh I changed the version number but am not familiar enough with the header info to know that the avatar data exists... before... you paint it haha. but now that I think about what's in there when you start from scratch in bitsy that makes sense. thank you v v much!
