I think it might have something to do with the paint program i have, and plus, i got a new laptop recently (that's the one I'm using) and i can't import sprites!
The newest version of Paint doesn't support indexed files, which means if you open an indexed file in paint, it loses its index. To remedy this, I use Gimp, or Photoshop, which support indexed files

I think I'm done with ROM hacking. I'll still pop in and visit, though.
