See https://sourceforge.net/p/arianne/bugs/5767/ for why the current Elder Gargoyle sprite can't be used (it's a copyright image from Chrono Trigger, a SNES game by Square Enix). I have made a replacement Elder Gargoyle spritesheet that is a palette-swap from the gargoyle, venom gargoyle, and dark gargoyle spritesheets (which are all palette-swaps of each other). This eliminates any problem with copyright infringement... and I also think my version of an Elder Gargoyle looks pretty nice, too. I tried to find free images for use in games that looked like a gargoyle online but none of the ones I found quite fit, and this one is better than anything I could find online. Plus this doesn't require adding any license text to the game or anything. So I am submitting this as a patch, to use this spritesheet in replacement of the current one for Elder Gargoyles.

    Oh right, and the exact path in the source code to elder gargoyle.png is "data\sprites\monsters\gargoyle\elder gargoyle.png". So that is the file that needs to be replaced with this one.

    Thanks for the new images. I removed the background and added it to 1.13
