Thanks a bunch, both of you.
I'll try to do what you said and also check on the said tutorial.

Thank you for this tool. I've been customizing the sprites of some pokemon and the shiny forms because to be honest, they just don't match my preference or I feel like I could add something new to the game.

Okay I'm having a problem with it whenever I try to open it up, it says that Data is not Lz77 compressed.

Can you edit sprite position with this? I'm having a big problem with a sprite I've edited that suddenly ends up way too low on screen (like it's standing below the grassy area).

Thank you for this amazing tool I particularly love the 'switch color' feature, it's very useful for editing palettes, and much faster than the IrfanView method.

edit: I'm having slight problems, which are probably not because of the program, but still:
1. I'm trying to edit the Oak sprite in the Oak intro, I edited it to match a Slowbro with the exact same color table, but when I import it back in, the colors are all messed up.
2. In the navigation pane there is a bookmark for the text box frame. Since it's just a tile set, I figured changing the tiles while leaving their position intact should work for me but for some reason it messes the position of the textbox. Is there a better way to edit the text box?

IIRC you can't, but you can use Wichu's Advanced Sprite Positioning Editor from his Advance Series Toolbox.

1. You have to repoint the palette.
2. I don't understand.

Thanks CelticGuard, though I'm having a lot of problems using the Advance series. Still, I found another way to solve my problem.

Okay for the people that have trouble accessing Nameless sprite editor, and are having the error Data is not Lz77 compressed, go to save palette to rom the next time you try to save.

  1. So what I did was:
    1. Save the 256-color Oak Sprite using NSE 2.x
    2. Grab the palette of that screen using VBA, import it onto Oak in Photoshop
    3. Edit Oak into Slowbro, making sure I was using the exact same colors
    4. Replace the color table with the original B&W 256-color table
    5. Reimport into NSE. It did not require repointing as it was smaller.
    I don't know where I'm going wrong, it shows up as the wrong colors. Also I'm using CS5.

  2. Basically I replaced my text box tileset with this:

    It has all tiles in the correct positions. What happened when I imported it into game was the textbox floated to the top-right corner of the screen (which makes no sense, since I figured if there was any error at all it'd show up as glitchy tiles). However it did require repointing for being too big.

About your Oak sprite.
You got the colors right? Maybe you open your Slowbro on Photoshop.
Go export the color table of it then import it on the oak sprite.

I have searched this thread for a while and still can't find the answer to these questions, so, here they are: This does support Pokemon Sprite editing for Ruby, right? It says it only supports FR/LG and Emerald - nothing about Ruby/Sapphire. All other sprite editing seems to work just fine for Ruby, so is there something wrong with the Pokemon sprite plugin? Or am I missing something?

You may notice that I, unlike most people on the Internet, actually use proper grammar. I can't stand it when people talk so confusingly, with their "i loeve thiz plashe itsz sou funn!" sentences everywhere I look. Copy and paste this in your sig if you feel the same way.
And please, if I ever misspell anything, please tell me - that kind of thing just irks me something awful.

I think there's just no plugin for R/S. But you may implement one.
