    Here's a tutorial that teaches you how to insert Trainer Sprites using NSE 2.X

    Requirements
    -NSE 2.X
    -MS PAINT
    -INFRANVIEW
    -VBA/NO$GBA
    -A brain!

    First you must have a Trainer Sprite be sure that's it in 64x64 pixels.
    Spoiler:


    Then next step is to pick a background that's found nowhere in the sprite.
    Spoiler:


    Save.

    Then time to make it 16 colors, open up your sprite in Infranview.
    Spoiler:

    First go to image and click "Decrease Color Depth" and click "16 colors (4 BPP) then click "OK" then save!



    Now Open up the 16 colored sprite with Infranview
    Spoiler:
    Now go to Image and click Pallete then Edit Pallete.
    This should appear.

    Next click the first box you see.
    This should appear.

    Take note of the RGB, the RGB is "4, 2, 4"
    After that click the box that corresponds to your background color
    This should appear.

    Take note of the RGB, the RGB is "4, 254, 4"
    Now what you need to do is switch their RGB's the Black pallete will be replaced with the Background.
    If replaced It should look like this.

    Now replaced the Background Pallete with the Black Pallete
    If replaced It should look like this.

    And if you did everything right the sprite should look like this.

    After that save it as another Image.


    Now open both sprites in Paint.
    Spoiler:
    Press Ctrl+A in the first sprite then press Ctrl+C then go to the newer sprite and press Ctrl+V there.
    After that save it and your done indexing!
    If you did everything right you should get this.



    Next Inserting the Sprite.
    Spoiler:
    First open NSE 2.X

    Next, load you ROM

    After that click Trainer Sprites and navigate to the sprite you want to replace

    Then goto File, then Import, then Import Sprite Data, and load your sprite and press save.
    You should get something like this.

    The sprite looks messed up don't worry just do what I do.
    First save the image and repoint by going to File and then Save then click on the Magnifying Glass then Ok.

    After that to fix the pallete go to file Import, then Import Color Table, load you sprite, then save.

    Now to save the pallete go to Edit, then Pallete, and Save pallete to ROM and click the magnifying glass and save.

    And that's it all that's left is to test it!


    Testing Time
    Spoiler:

    Time to test it!
    I used the trainer card as a Screenshot because I changed the Male Hero Sprite...

    That's all have fun hacking!

        Nonono you forgot an important thing in your tutorial. While indexing you MUST DESELECT that "Use Floyd-Steinberg dithering" as it adds useless dithering and pixel clusters to your sprites which practically looks ruined if zoomed in to the sprite. Other than that, you made an easy-to-follow tutorial and it might help a few learners.

        And important notice: Copy-pasting the real stuff in Paint as described in the Ctrl + A and Ctrl + C thing is wrong. The Windows 7 version of MS Paint does not allow such indexing. I recommend using GIMP as it provides useful tools for working with already indexed sprites.

          Sorry, I don't have GIMP... (I don't know anything about it only know MS PAINT xD)

          And I don't have Windows 7 yet, I'm using my old computer which has Windows XP and also your right in that Floyd-SteinBerg dithering thingy, also I still don't know in Windows 7 if you can't really copy past the sprite over the other one, so maybe this tut is for Windows XP and Vista only lol

          But even though you don't do that your sprite is still indexed btw, And also I made this tutorial for hackers that don't like using UNLZ in inserting sprites...

          On the first place I didn't even want to post a tut on Indexing and go straight to inserting sprites, But I changed my mind cause I see myself b4 what if I were those newbies? xD

          Also if you guys think that my Indexing tut is hard, you can use other peoples tut on Indexing Sprites, thank you!

            Actually I meant that in MS Paint Vr Windows 7 if you edit an indexed sprite it will remove the indexing.



            And BTW don't worry your tut is easy to understand and nobody would have any problem understanding it.

                    Also if anyone is still having problems indexing the sprite well then here's a tutorial on how to insert sprites the other way around, may work on Windows 7 users...

                        Okay I'm following this step by step (except the copy/paste part which I do in photoshop elements instead of paint shop) and when I go to import it it says

                        "unable to load sprite, it is either not indexed or in an unknown alpha channel"

                          By any chance are you using Windows 7? If then you should just follow this tutorial to Index your sprite. http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=288641

                                I can't save my palette data, mainly because my window to save it, is not fully extended downward so I cant save anything because of that problem.

                                  Hmm.. Yeah, I know what you mean I saw your post on PHO.

                                  Idk maybe it's just NSE bugging out.

                                                Haha this tutorial is pretty nice, I have to say. I actually knew everything here, except for that background palette. I always had to switch between the XXXX color and black on paint after I did that palette swap thing on Irfan and that was a real pain (lol).
