I didn't expect to update the tool so soon but I've re-organised the scripts to make it easier to implement the background layers in external projects. I also used these new scripts to add a viewer window to better demonstrate implementation.

changelog:
- added viewer window
- added pk_dreamSpace script which contains functions for reading and drawing backgrounds. This script can easily be used to implement the PK DreamSpace background functions into other GMS2 projects.

v1.2.0!
Probably the last feature update for a week or so as I have some minor bugs to fix. In this update I have added a button to record gifs of the backgrounds based on a Discord user's suggestion.
