I was wondering if someone could help me,
I'm trying to edit the follow sprites:

but I have no idea where to find them
(mostly May's sprites, but Brendan's sprites could come in handy too)

I've searched all over with NSE, but the included scripts don't work with Pokémon Emerald Version.

If someone could help me with this, I'd be very grateful

PS: I'm not very smart with the hacking shenanigans, that's why I use programs that make it simpler, thanks xD;

I'm having a bit of an issue with the colour of my new sprite. It seems once I have saved the sprite under the correct colours, in-game they invert, does anyone know whats wrong here? If it helps I have replace Ekans (Pokemon) with Palmon (Digimon).

Would really love to use this for OW editing purposes, but can't seem to run it, as my (Virtualbox'ed) windows XP says it 'can't find a version of the runtime to run this application' Anyone got a solution for this? (and I have reinstalled my .Net 4.5)

So. Very likely that I'm just stupid, but I find it rather difficult to edit the backsprites. Trying to edit Red's back sprite in Fire Red. I did his OW and Trainer Card sprite, but I can only access the backsprite in the Bookmarks. While I can change the palette code, the palette I used for the Trainer Card Sprite looks ridiculous on his backsprite due to different shading and colors and blegh.
So is there any way I can directly edit the backsprite and it's palette?

Please ignore my idiocy, I figured out what I need to do. I'm stupid. Totally neglected the little "Open" button there.
I'll just go sit over here and bow my head in shame.

This wouldn't work with my fire red rom. All the changes I made to the rom was one map.

This is what it says on the Details section when the error message showed up: See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this

The application must also be compiled with debugging

For example:

<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.

Hi, i'm having trouble with the recent update of the Nameless Sprite Editor Mr.Link had posted, I really need the help, the trouble i'm having is that whenever I click on the + Sign it doesn't show me the full options so I can't really use or see the eye dropper, and when I want to click on the - sign if doesn't return to its original state, I tried deleting it then downloading it again but nothing seems to work.

Hi. This program is awesome! I altered the main character and the rival for my boyfriend who live streams (you can see it at twitch.com/elvencloud). I have a problem though. He also plays Yu-Gi-Oh, so I thought it would be fun to make one of the elite four into a character from that, but when I change Lance's pallete (index 74) it changed the pallete for several others (such as index 14). It doesn't change the pallete for ALL sprites, but just some. I was wondering if there is a way to prevent this. I was able to change the pallete for several things, but this is the first hiccup I've had.
Thank you for your help!
