          wow O.O
          could you tell me *how* you read pictures from the ROM?
          not nescesarily the code, but a sort of summary
          eg
          open rom
          file seek to this position in the ROM
          readbyte,drawpixel etc

                    What rom(and header) are you using!

                    This may sound stupid but, if you don't know:
                    you have to press the index ">" and "<" buttons to change sprites

                      How do I import sprites in your editor. I can't find import image just import sprite library. Can you help or at least make a tutorial.

                        Do you think you could include manual numbers in the perferences? Not pre-defined numbers like; 32, 64, etc? Because a lot of sprites in d/p/p and h/s are 24 and stuff. And that's a lot of extra space in the sprite that it doesn't need. Or, is that what the "space saver" option is for?

                        I only played around with it for a little, but it seems good. I don't see it replacing OW editor Re-Birth anytime soon, but still it's a great start.

                          To enter manual numbers in preferences switch to advanced mode.
                          Then you can enter any number up too 255

                          I knew somebody(s) might want to enter custom sizes...

                                This will probably not replace Sebbe's one( When he releases it), but it'll probably replace HackMew's. Good job!

                                  I knew somebody(s) might want to enter custom sizes...

                                  By the way, one more question; will this have support for JPAN's Hacked engine? (in future updates)

                                  does it not already? or were you talking about the whole pallettes thing?
                                  *edit*
                                  is it just me or does any size besides 16 (when importing a bitmap) make a crash on the program?
                                  (yes, i resized the ROMS sprite too...)

                                    i think you can better make an ini with every index and frame as offset cuz when we can add more we can add it and change it
                                    and maybe an extra idea
                                    can you make it possible that it can add sprites so instead of idk how much you can do 500 or something
                                    i hope you get it soon finished

                                        I was talking about the extended pallet part, yes.

                                        Also, hmm. I inserted one by 32x32 and it didn't seem to crash.
                                        Then, I tried another 24x24, and it inserted also without a crash.

                                        I'd suggest you make sure that you set the size (i.e.24x24) before, save, and then import it. Or else you might see that crash, or an error, or something.

                                        Apart from this, you should make sure you're using the framework 3.5, because I had a problem, too, before I updated my frame work when I tried to save the changes in the perferences. And if it's already installed, like mine was, re-download and repair it, and it should work after that. (Mine did.) Hope it helps.

                                        @ Link, I can't seem to find any other bugs. Thanks again for this awesome tool it's been really helpful so far in my hack.

                                          Now can export the sprites as 16 color bitmaps!
