All right, it's no problem. Good luck with your exams, whenever they may be.

I'm here to apologize, for not getting back to you for... Over two months. It's clear that I wasn't really cut out to sprite for AncientEmerald, and I'm sorry for wasting your time. And, (though I'm sure you couldn't care less) I won't be able to resume "helping" (fat lotta good I did, lol) you, because I'm in my final year at school, and I won't be able to work with anyone's project's until after I've done my exams. So, sorry again. Thanks for letting me try in the first place, and I wish you the best of luck with AncientEmerald. I'll be sure to keep two eyes on it.

Yes, trust me, there will be the Battle Frontier. Please respond back when you get some of the sprites done.

Ok, I was right.
I know i keep saying I'll get to it, without showing anything, but I'll have some for you later today. I see it's now AncientEmerald! Excellent!
(Although, may I ask- are you gonna be able to do the Frontier?)

Yes, that tutorial was wrong, all GBC sprites only have two shades, no matter what. They also have black and white, which cannot be edited without editing the black and white in every single sprite in the game.

Btw, I've been working using only 4 colours, but that first tutorial you gave me (the Lugias-island one), that one used 5? I'm a bit confused. Perhaps that tutorial wasn't for actual ROM hacking, just for the sake of spriting.. So it's definately 2 shades, and black and white, isn't it?
July 5th, 2009 12:53 PMMelash
Yeah, I would still like you as my spriter, but you just to practice a bit more at devamping. Keep practicing.
July 4th, 2009 2:15 PMgiradialkia
Yeah, no worries, i'd only ever played around with devamps before, it's no wonder their's are better. Although..
I think mine do only have 4 colours- but you were probably just reminding me, so disregard this if that's true. Um..
Ok, yeah, i'll get to it.
PS. Sorry for my late reply, i've been a bit busy recently.

Sorry I didn't have to time to respond, I actually haven't been on in a long time. Anyway, I have someone else also doing devamps, and their's seem to be better than your's, no offense. However, I think you should read these two tutorials and practice devamping, then come back to me:
There you go, remember, only FOUR colors, two of which must be black and white.

So, you didn't like them? That's ok, i've only ever done very little work in devamps, anyways. Meh, it's no problem. I'll stay tuned to your hack!

Right, something strange happened to this post and changed it to half of the link to my Torchic pic.
Anyways, they're up, with an extra image- Bagon. I personally prefer my Bagon and Torchic to the others- frankly, my Treecko is fugly, hideous! Apologies for that, it's a lot harder than it seems, you're brave!
Let me know if you like any of them..
June 25th, 2009 7:53 AMgiradialkia
Ok, i'll get on it! Yes, i knew they had to be 56x56, and that white was used to show shine or brightness or whatnot. I'll upload them when i'm done, later today.
June 25th, 2009 7:07 AMMelash
Oh sure, I understand. Yes, I would like my sprites to be private, so no other users can really use them, so this method does seem pretty good. Let me tell you some basics of GBC sprites. You MUST follow these guidelines:
1. They MUST be 56 x 56
2. They MUST have only four colors
3. Two of the colors MUST be White and Black
Sound fair enough? I would like you to devamp the first three Hoenn starters, if you don't mind, so I can see how good you are at spriting.
June 25th, 2009 2:26 AMgiradialkia
Well, spriting is actually my thing, lol. Haven't done much devamping but it's pretty simple compared to revamping.
Before you sign me up as a spriter, however.. You should know that for some reason i can't put images in PMs or anything the likes, and the only way i can give images is by putting them in an Album. I was spriting for a game called BlackChrome and that is what i had to do. There is the obvious danger of people trying to steal my work, so i set the Album as ''only viewable by friends''. Now, this mightn't be such a big deal to you, that's great, but if you want the sprites to be exclusive to your game, then I just add you as a friend, create a new Album, set it to private, and then whala, exclusive sprites. For extra security, i delete the sprites when you've got them, lol.
Is this acceptable to you? Adding you as a friend will enable you to see a (tiny) portion of my work, too. If this is all a bit strange, i understand, but i'd love to sprite if you like.
