Now everyone. Don't start getting on me whether you like the Idea or not, but I've created a simple Alignment tool for newcomers to Game design. This tool is made for ppl who have a tough time with tile alignment.
Spoiler:



Yes it's a simple Idea and in order to use It I've provided a link to a program I use to align the tiles with.

http://paint.net/

To use the tile alignment tool simply drag and drop your tileset into Paint.net, click image--->Resize and if you're using RMXP you'll have a width of 256(I'm not sure about other programs...In order for this tool to work you must set the width of the tileset to 128 so just type that into the width box and push OK

After you've done all that take the image I've provided save it to your desktop, then drag and drop it onto the image of your tileset. You should then get a pop up info screen like so.

Push Add into Layer and this is your next image.

Spoiler:


That red marker just indicates how far you can go until you hit another tile DO NOT EXCEED THAT Marker unless you have no tiles underneath the one you're placing...It'll be white for you all. I hope you all find this useful and good luck.
