I cant wait for the lz function. :D

Also, Im trying to find the water animation in Tile Molester to bookmark the offset in NSE but Im having troubles finding it. Would you happen to have the offset lying around anywhere? In Fire Red, btw.

EDIT: Well, I found where the water tiles start. At this offset. 3A7674
And here is the pallet. EA1BE8
Only problem is the tiles are spread apart. Is there any way to get them together in one picture?
I have a feeling we are destined to cross paths again.

Searching for offsets doesn't seem to work on Emerald, I typed the offsets for Brendans battle sprite and pallete, and all I got was a static looking image with the wrong colors

Update NSE 1.7-
Yay, it's finally here XD

  • Fixed some bugs
  • An overall speedup
  • Better, faster free space finding
  • More dynamics added to bookmarks, (Image lengths, more dynamic pointers, support for LZ bookmarks)
  • LZ Decompression and Re-compression on both images and palettes
  • Re-point compressed images and palettes, NSE will search for and change any referencing pointers
  • Automatically finds free-space or do it yourself in Advanced Mode

----------






Get this dialog (above) by switching to Advanced mode,
or let NSE do it automatically! (Applies to both images and palettes)


Note(S): What this means-

This does not mean that you can change the size of compressed images,
-But rather means that you can edit the image and palette inside of NSE, export and import bitmaps, and a ton of other things.

I highly recommend you bookmark anything you re-point , so you don't forget the offset.

Yes, it's finally here!
Two things though:
What about images that are decompressed, but have a compressed palette? Or vice-versa? Maybe you could combine both offset browsing boxes and put checkmarks to determine whether one or the other is compressed (or not).

Second, you have a spelling mistake (Auto-abort if data is to big, should be too big).

- NSE automatically checks what exactly it is your looking at/for.
It knows if a palette is compressed. It knows if an image is compressed.
It just knows... spooky

And yes, you can mix and match compressed and uncompressed images and palettes.




Whoops...
Sorry for the spelling issue. My bad,
and after all the work I put into this update... cries.

That feature is cool!
And no worries, it's just one letter. The same exact mistake was made in un-LZ (Compressed size is: 0xYYY. Which is to big. Aborting.)

lol, it pains me how common that mistake is D:
anyways, might i suggest something to you?
if/when an image is repointed, you should also over-write the old image with the "FF" byte, as to preserve free-space.

Good idea!
Never really, crossed my mind (Except for briefly, before being shoved aside by another idea) XD

In-fact...

UPDATE 1.7.0.5
  • Replaces old images ( after a re-point) with free-space
  • Fixed an unforgivable spelling mistake :p
  • Tweaked the LZ compression algorithm
  • Added a nifty button hyper-linking to this thread!


See, I fixed it!

er... I'm having problems with the OverWorld that I'm trying to put in the ROM, because the image have only four colors(it's a robot, hero of my comic), and NSE can't accept low-collor sprites like this

Just save the image your importing as a 16 color bitmap and then import it.

Hey I have a suggestion/request. An option to "delete" an image from a ROM may be useful. Like replace the image with FF bytes. This will help create more space in the ROM. It would majorly benefit when Hacking Emerald as there are several useless images in the ROM.

How about just inserting+repointing and image that has all it's pixels set to the 'ff' byte?
;edit;
ignore that, you would still have to take care of the unlz header thing.

When you want to change the size of a sprite you have to switch the preferences from "Index" to "All". If you don't NSE thinks that you just want to change the stored size variable in the index, instead of re-pointing and resizing all of the frames and changing the stored size var.
Just switch to "All mode"

Seems like I'm going to have to write a guide to NSE...

Whoa I <3 this tool. I love the fact that we can now change back sprites! Oh, and how do we change Pokemon sprites? I dunno where to find offsets.

Hey, for some reason NSE is repointing things to places that have NO free space at all... O.o
I tested it out on a ROM that I had. I made a backup, and, without doing anything else, got NSE to repoint the frames of a sprite. And, actual, used bytes were overwritten
