So you can insert tiles now? Oh my gosh M, your such a fast learner!
Although I can't understand some of the steps, it still teaches me something about editing the palette.

EDIT: Oh and Pokemon Eon Legends is canceled, due to me frustrated to my rom and almost throwing my laptop >.> So you can delete that folder in your desktop that says "POKEMON EON LEGENDS".

This is great! I can't say anything about this. Anyways its probably a good second alternative for people who can't buy photoshop.
