Means « Pixels to Sprites & Masks »: image tool dedicated for games development (2/16/256 colors sprites). Work is done on chunky two-dimensional byte-array, so that image modifications are made independently to current screenmode.
Planned to evolve to a plain drawing tool.

Needs EdDI cookie for offscreen VDI (NVDI), plenty of RAM and strong CPU.
Uses a customized PARX.SYS, provided in the archives.
