Controls over Game Artwork

You can display controls over game artwork passed via command line. An example:

If you are wishing to do this:

- Ensure any images used in CPWizard Designer are transparent. Don't worry about the Background layer (in CPWizard settings) - this is replaced when CPWB runs. 

- Use the command line switches -bg1, -bg2 + -bgd to specify the images to try. They don't actually have to exist - so your front-end can generate what the image would be and CPWB will try and find the image. You can set -bgd as a static, default image that you know does exist as a default in case of failure of the other two.
