Quickie: If I have the byte arrays of alpha values of both sprites for whom I'm checking for a collision detection:
byte[] myAlpha = me.getSprite().getAlpha();
byte[] hisAlpha = him.getSprite().getAlpha();
How do I use these arrays to check for a collision? I know, I'm a noob, but I couldn't find help on google... =/ BTW, I'm getting these byte arrays using the following code:

// texImage is a BufferedImage

byte[] data = ((DataBufferByte) texImage.getRaster().getDataBuffer()).getData();
byte[] alpha = new byte [texImage.getWidth() * texImage.getHeight()];
int count = 0;
for ( int i = 0 ; i < data.length ; i++ ) {
    if(i % 4 == 0 && i != 0) {
        alpha [ count ] = data [ i - 1 ];
            count++;
        }
    }
}
Thanks in advance, Son Of Cain

Forgive my ignorance, but why would you use the alpha values to check for collision? Wouldn't that cause weird results if the values happened to be the same but were on different sides of the screen?

Dumb me, you're right.

I mistook what to sample. It's not the alpha values I need, but pixels on the region where the both bounding rectangles intersect.

Dumb dumb me.. Gotta study more this stuff!

Sorry!
