This is really helpful! (I find myself coming back to thing when inserting big sprites)

But i do have one question: After inserting a sprite of Mewtwo and gone through each step correctly and then restarting UnLZ, why is the Mewtwo palette there but not the Mewtwo sprite (The original sprite is there instead)?
I've played my rom and it has the correct image within the game, but UnLZ doesn't.

Is this a bug for UnLZ or is there a problem with the offset i used? :\

Did you paste the original resized sprite over the decreased colour depth sprite in paint?

If so, then when decreasing the colour depth to 16 colours UNCHECK Floyd - SteinBerg Dithering, so you wont get those dots all over the sprite.

Tell me if you have any more problems or you don't understand this stuff

Neither. You put the sprite in a new offset, unlz still has the old offset. It isn't a bug or anything, it is just the sprite you inserted is somewhere else, because you placed it there, and the old sprite is still in the ROM, at the offset unlz is at.

You get the sprite of togekiss and goto infranview and decrease colour depth to 16 colour bit. Uncheck the Floyd-SteinBerg dithering and click OK. Then save it as a different name like togekiss 64 indexed or something. Open paint, copy and paste the NOT INDEXED sprite of togekiss on the indexed sprite and save it. There you go, you have successfully indexed your sprite . Tell me if you have any more problems Also if it doesn't work I can do it for you

im trying it now...
hope it works,
and in the first paint i open up, i was trying bulbasaur(HGSS), and should i change the second or third step in paint to 100% because it got a bit smaller after i did it. also what should the dimensions of the original sprite be? My bulbasaur sprite is small but i made it 64x64. and after i changed it to 80%, bulbasaurs dimensions became 52 by 52

If you're sprite is already at 64x64, you do not need to resize.

Why he put resize to 80% is because 80% of 80 is 64. If your sprite isn't 80, you need to resize it to 64 pixels by 64 pizels

If you meant the background, it needs to have a colour at the background that is very different to the ones the sprite uses. Like a very very bright, eye burning pink.

Why is it when I go to import the new sprite in and after using space finder and writing it to the ROM, if I go to the back sprite, and then go straight back to the front sprite that i just completed, the picture is the old sprite(in this case charmander) is very discolored. and where did my new sprite go? and in the game its discolored as the charmander rather than the new one. am i not getting enough space from space finder?

More details.

What exactly is now wrong with the ROM? Just saying it destroyed it isn't a specific problem, as that could mean anything.

ok quick question...
Every time I try this, and I pasted the "Good picture" over the "messed picture" (after indexing and pallete changing), and when I try to insert it in UNLZ, it says "Image not Indexed" ...?

Can anyone help me with this?

Windows 7 Paint refuses to accept the image as " indexed ". I suggest you download PAINT.NET and Go from there. Also this goes to everyone having the problem of pasting the unindexed image over the indexed image. Download PAINT.NET and your problems should be solved.

No one can really help you if you don't say what you did wrong. Just telling you for future reference. Also don't revive a thread. Read the rules.

Hey guys! I was experimenting and Idk if someone already posted this but you know how that outline always shows up that matches the background? Well to get rid of it instead of stretching/skewing your sprite then saving it don't. Instead just give it a background color and save a copy (or just save the image but I make copies just in case). Then do the steps you would in infranview, decreasing color depth, etc., then you stretch and skew both images (don't worry if the indexed one looks weird) copy the non indexed image and paste it into the indexed image and viola! No outline! But you still may have to do a bit of editing depending on the sprite and its pallete...

Hoped this helped some people and sorry if it's a little unclear =)
