I may have overdone it with the glow COs

Cursed Gallery Hub

This is supposed to be the starting area for the Another Knytt Stories Collaboration Level collab project (the proposed idea being "The Cursed Gallery"). It's currently 16 screens long.

Some notes that may or may not be of interest:

* Features a freshly new tileset made almost from scratch and a couple COs for the lighting effects. There are still 3 unused tiles in the set, suggestions for these are welcome.

* Since this is just a hub area with no challenges, there's not much to do here, but I suppose it can still be somewhat enjoyed as a simple playground level and "appreciate the art" while taking a relaxing walk.

* There are 10 big framed portraits with a golden plaque that can be used as access points to the other upcoming areas of the level (if the final number of areas end up being less, it's just a matter of removing a few plaques).

* All the portrait pictures are just placeholders for now. I made the area in a way that only tileset A is needed in every screen, so tileset B can be used to hold the preview pictures for each area (plus other decorative pictures). The picture for each frame has to be cropped by 4 pixels from the outer border and overlayed over the background texture ("Tileset19.png" may serve as an example).

* The door at the end can be used as an ending room that would only be unlocked once the player has finished the other areas or accomplished any specific goal (collecting a certain power, all KS+ coins/artifacts...)

* The stairs at x1000y1000 and x1005y1000 caused a wallswim when they went all the way up due to the triangular collision mask, so I resorted to cut them off at the upper border and make the last step a simple jump. If anyone knows of a more elegant solution, please tell me.

* No KS+ features used for now, but if the whole level ends up requiring KS+, I wouldn't be opposed to adding some extra lighting effects and bonuses.
