*If you downloaded this befor 7/2/2010 3:39 PM EST please download again to fix a bug.*
I just created a program to allow users to easily edit the btx files used for the overworld sprites.
Please report and problems or suggestions you have.

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3706406/Files/BTX%20Editor.rar

How to use:
Extract the btx files from the narc file. (/a/0/8/1 for HG/SS) (Can anyone tell me the file for D/P/Pt?)

Open the Program.

Click the Open .btx button and select a btx file, if it a supported file (almost all the different trainer sprites) it will then be displayed.

You can save it as a PNG file, edit it, and open the edited image, or just open a premade sprite sheet in the proper format. (32 by 32x, where x is the number of frames)

Once a new image has been loaded into the program, you just click the Save .btx as... button to save the file.(At this time you can not overwrite the currently loaded file)

Replace the new .btx file with the one you want to edit and repack the narc file.

IMPORTANT:
MAX OF 16 COLORS.

Would it be too much to ask to post a tutorial video? And how come when I extract the files they're narcs? :c

So, with this tool, and the video tutorial 1 post above this, we can edit any overworld from the game, including the gym leaders and E4 and those people? And I can't find the kiwi.ds thing. It gives me a site with a MIDI-SSEQ thing, but no kiwi...

just a quick question: does this also work with B/W? I don't care if you don't know where the files are, I'll search for it in the rom then.

As far as I'm aware, it's only for HG/SS and maybe D/P/Pt.

And if he didn't know where the files where in B/W, he wouldn't be able to make it compatible with B/W anyway.

When I unpacked those files in HG/SS, I found out they were called .btx files. So, I guess they are also called like that in B/W. This means, if I unpack some files in B/W, I am able to find them. Unless gamefreak used a different file in those games, which is unlikely, because when I was doing some research in other ds games, I also found .btx files.

I don't want to sound like I am asking for a lot or anything, but can someone make a sheet of the hero from black and white so that all I have to do is replace the two sheets and it switches? Thanks! Also, does anyone know how to edit the back sprites?
