This took way too long.

To give you an idea of my methods, x=0 is SRoMG #1, x=1 is #2, x=2 is #3, and so on, all the way to x=199, which is #200. Basically, The x coordinate of the strip is equal to the strip's number, minus one, or more concisely, with S for strip, x = S - 1.

Transparency was kept, so if anything was invisible, that's kept. This means that sometimes, a strip will have transparency so it can leak into another. Some strips shorter than the height also do this. One strip (#191 "Garfield Miners Garfield") was too small, and even though it had nothing on its x value, it was included anyways (despite effectively amounting to an empty strip and allowing the prior strip to leak into one more strip). If a strip was longer vertically, it was cropped down to the minimum. All of this results in the first 200 SRoMG strips, condensed into one panel.

I could've theoretically done this for up to strip 600 (the usual width of these strips is up to 600, with 200 per panel), but I don't have the time, patience, or a strong enough computer, so I'll leave that to someone with more business in that.

Now let's hope nobody's done this before...
