Oh I appreciate the help!
LordShiva that thing is asking me to login for some reason D:
TonyW I appreciate the help, but I think it's my fault for forgetting to mention some things about my game.
The items in my game level up. So I'd rather not attach 200 variables to one sprite with all the item frames.
Or rather, I'm trying to find a way to pick up items with individual stats. Since you'll be able to level different things on them. So using the sprite-based system might be a bit too much?
Unless I'm unaware of a way to save specific item stats in different places.
EDIT: Also the inventory gets moved off-screen to hide it so it wouldn't take up screen space.
