RPGE currently only supports 16 by 16 sprites, rather than a sprite-specific width.

This task comes down to adding support for m by n sprites, wherein each and every single mob can have a unique sprite size. (Tile sprite sizes are obviously limited to the uniform size of a tile) Furthermore, this means that tile occupants have to be somehow generalized, such that the collision checking of mobs and tiles comes down to a checking intersection of two m by n rectangles. Another tricky part is keeping track of the 'occupant status' of a m by n mob that may span 200 tiles, 1 tile or even just 1/8th of a tile.

For me, personally, this is a RPGE-1.0.0 item, something that should be fixed before I can call RPGE 'complete', but not something that is extremely urgent.
