This is a nice tool you've made hear. I'm having some trouble finding the heroine backsprite offset, so might I ask for it? Thanks in advance if you do respond.


May have strayed from Nintendo, but still representing!

You would have to re-insert your hero sprite, once you've messed it up thats the only way to un-mess it up, that I'm aware of atleast XD

you gotta find the original sprite offset, and then modify the pointer yourself (i'm not doin much with NSE aotm, so idk if you can do that from within the program or not)

★ full metal.

I like to push it,
and push it,
until my luck is over.

Are you getting any error messages, like "... 'XXXX' can not be found..."
If not, you may not have the .net 3.5 framework installed. See the first post for details

UPDATE!
-Version 1.62
  • Fixed some annoying bugs...
  • In your settings.ini "start palette =" becomes "palette table =" <See readme.
  • Slightly increased speed... 2%
  • Better offset browsing compatibility with other functions

-Using a NSl-
NSL's are meant to be a faster ,cleaner way to backup, tranfer, upload ,or send sprites and their palettes.

Navigate to the sprite you want to export (ie, Index: 0, Index: 34, Index: 151)
In the file menu (top bar) select "export" and "export sprite library" or just press Crtrl-E
Save it somewhere

Navigate to the sprite you want to overwrite (Same examples as above)
When you want to use the NSL goto file (top bar) select "import" and "import sprite library"
Click load and then select your file,
You can save individual frames, the palette, or all frames and the palette.

If your wondering on the NSL format...

  • Palette in GBA format followed by a "#" 64 + 1 char(s)
  • Image data for each frame in the GBA format but reversed for drawing speed, y char(s)
Final size: x + y + 64 + 1

I'd be nice if you could insert so many frames when importing nsl's. It's a pain porting overworlds to another game.

A really good feature to have would be not running of of settings.ini and starting off to the default sprite table. Users could be able to input their own sprite table directly in the program. Maybe palettes would still need a settings.ini, but otherwise...

Downoaded it and it looks kust like another OW editor, nothing special about it.

There's allot special about NSE,
Some of the most distinguishing features are:
  • NSE uses the game's built in sprite table
  • Editing a character's preferences(Size, Image pointers, and Display Data)
  • A palette editor, with access to all sprite palettes
  • Offset browsing (view any uncompressed image, optional palette(Which can then be changed) and gray scale) < Used from editing tiles and animations, to text boxes, back sprites and a ton of other things
  • Import and export bitmaps to an offset or sprite
  • A built in hex editor (Pointers for each sprite embedded)
  • Dynamic pointers, for correct palette usage in game
  • Support for re-pointed sprites, palettes and tables (even JPAN's engine)
  • Embedded offsets and an optional settings.ini
  • Access to every available sprite and several unavailable ones (ex. Dive in firered)
Not to mention NSE can do all the same things as any-other OW editor (in many cases in a better way), and NSE is still being actively worked on...

1. Glad to hear you think its useful
2. Player backsprites, yes
3. Battle background sprites, possibly (certain parts can be edited, differences in different rom versions is a factor to consider)

Good to hear new ideas,
Part of the problem of loading from the default sprite table is, What if somebody has completely removed it.

Options to edit the pointers NSE is using ( Sprite Tables, Palette Tables, ect) could, and might be added soon
-Expect to see in 1.7 possibly

Maybe you could use the table in settings.ini for that, or prompt for table on opening (while still having as choice later), or just saying "Load a table." on the blank sprite, directing people to the option. Any of those could work.

So this is an OW Editor/unlz.gba/tile molester all in one?
This is so awesome! I use the built in HEX Editor as the HEX editor I use.
Great, wait no, AMAZING tool! Good luck with this.
