This program used to work really well for me and now it can't even add overworld slots.
Yeah, maybe I'm missing something but I feel like I've tried everything, and I just can't for the life of me import a sprite (which the old NSE will let me do) from just a png/bmp, no sheet or anything. I always get some error about the image size (though NSE classic works fine).. Are there any older versions or something that will let me do this?

I figured out what the problem was. In my case I had some random hex values at the end of my palette table. Once I removed them the program worked fine.

Every time I try to import a sprite sheet it keeps crashing.. It was working perfectly before, has anyone else had this issue? I'm kinda stuck now because this started happening since the last time I edited sprites which was about a month ago... I just noticed it now, Any advice?

Hey guys so I managed to fix that bug that made OWM instantly close when I tried to import my sprites. I thought it might be a good idea to post it here.

So, after an insane amount of trial and error (and copy pasting a backup's hexcode over top my current version until the editor started working again, I was able to single out the issue that was causing the problem.

So my rom that was causing the editor to crash had this string of hex at the offset:
0x2F5FE8
Spoiler:

00 00 00 00 18 11 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

My backed up rom (which was like 15 backups ago was the last version of my rom to properly work with that program. Since it was my first time adding another sprite in since that time I hadn't noticed and I was kinda freaking out lol.

Anyway, I played a little game of spot the difference and noticed that the code from my backup was identical in every way (other than added events, map changes, level scaling, etc), except in this location. For some reason my back up looked like this at the same offset.
Spoiler:

70 F0 24 08 19 11 00 00 00 00 00 00 FF 11 00 00

Long story short, I copied and pasted the string of hex from my old rom to my new rom and was able to keep all of my data intact while simultaneously allowing the program to run correctly. The only difference was that one of the pallets for one of the characters I created was distorted so I fixed it.

My question to the creator and anyone else who might know why it happened is

WHAT THE HELL DID I DO????? LOL thanks guys, this program's awesome by the way!

So, I ran into another issue, when I insert a sprite that exceeds the original limit of 151 or 152 or whatever, when I try to insert the sprite into my game with advanced map it keeps showing up as the little boy sprite. Any sprite over the limit does this. On advanced map it shows the sprite that was added, but in game it shows the wrong image.

Have you imported JPAN's hacked engine?

No, I do not use JPAN's engine however, I fixed the issue. I simply had to change the byte at 0x5F2E0 to EF. Now it works fine

It became unbearable to work with this program. Constantly pours out. Looking for nothing. And from time to time it shows that it is a virus. Sometimes it disappears all by itself. Worse and worse. Previously, she worked normally without refusal. But now turned into a pile of burning garbage. Author if you are here. If you did not give it up. Fix it at last!

First, demanding stuff like this works demotivating. Someone makes this for free and you can use it to your liking. If you don't like it, don't use it. Or even better, make something yourself before you start harrassing someone.

Second, the program works fine for me. I have no idea how you can call this 'a pile of burning garbage', since it makes implementing new overworld sprites much less time consuming than alternatives!

Concerning your story, you probably just have to set this program as a 'safe' program in your virusscan/firewall/anti-malware program.

I called the program a burning pile of garbage due to the fact that it used to work without problems and it did not cause my anger and did not give out viruses and errors and did not fall. Now something began to happen to her not adequate. And it is strange. So I and many agree that this program has an internal term. Most likely this is even a demo program that we do not even know.

So it used to work great before, but because your Firewall/Antivirus detects the program as a virus it's suddenly a pile of garbage? As I said earlier that's likely not because of OWM, but because of your Firewall/Antivirus.

Being a little angry because something doesn't work directly doesn't give you a license to be rude to someone who made such a great tool (in my view) in his spare time. Plus the creator will never help you if you keep that tone;)

The funny thing is. What I used to have an antivirus and nothing like that. I calmly did everything and was happy. But now, after 3 months, I returned to this program, and this began to happen. And yes, I use BPRJ And I am Japanese

Normally what I would do, is right click the downloaded .zip, .7z or .rar, click Properties, click on the checkbox next to "Unblock from unofficial sources", then click OK button.

After you've done that, then you can unpack the contents from the .zip, .7z or .rar file.

All programs can run incorrectly if they haven't been unblocked in the properties menu.

Makes sense, hopefully? ;) I appologise if I haven't explained it very well. ^^;

Great program but I encountered an issue. I was using the tool to insert overworld sprites and when I was done and closed OWM, and later tried to modify some other OWs but when I opened my rom it crashed the program. Any idea what could have caused the problem?
