        If it gets lines over it like that, most likely there wasn't enough space to put it in, or you've placed something else over it. Since you said fsf gave you the offset, most likely the latter. This problem happened to me when I had the palette accidentally overwriting the sprite.

        Start afresh with a new rom and try this:
        Make sure you don't repoint the palette in unlz, just leave its offset as is
        Make sure you use offsets beyond 800000 (there should be a tick box for this in fsf
        Dont insert something else in the sprite offset

          I've followed this tutorial, but used it to replace the trainer sprite for the male protagonist, and it worked on my back up rom, but now that I put it into the real rom, I follow every step, but the Trainer card goes black when you try to view it, is there anything I can do to reverse this?

            Er, I'm no expert on patching or anything, but here's a link for ROM Recovery. You'll need HackMew's program A-Patch from his tool thread, there's a link to the thread somewhere in my tutorial if you want it.

                Weird. It should open png's, mine does. What OS are you running? XP, Vista, etc?

                  Perhaps you should say something about shiny sprites as it is a little more difficult then the normal ones.
                  Because you have to change the order of the shiny's pallete to make it come out right as I have found out the hard way :D

                    i found out what it was =P my computer messed up a while ago so we loaded Windows 2000 over the top of XP...paint on windows 2000 is rubbish "/ :L
                    it just means i keep having to convert the picture file after editing it which probably isn't helping it be clear.

                    EDIT

                    I got round the paint problem, but after i do everything the tutorial says, the new picture is back to 24 BPP so it says it is not indexed "/ what to do?

                        Could you explain that a bit more clearly? A picture of the problem tells a thousand words too, if you can get one.

                          Mine still says it isn't indexed, and I've redone the tutorial multiple times.

                          Can you explain exactly what it does when it indexes a file? That may have something to do with my problem.

                                  When I test out my sprite, the screen went black. =[ Because I inserted the sprite, then it said it's too big. So then I get free space, and put it in. Then I test it out and its black. =[ It's a gym leader sprite. I went on A-Trainer and it looks fine, but it won't work. Any help?

                                    I'm pretty sure this is for Pokemon only. By the way, trainer sprites are more than 64x64.

                                    Also, I'm having a problem too. When I save it on and write it on and do everything it says in the guide, then press "Next" and "Previous", the original sprite is still there... I'm not sure.

                                      Hi~


                                      Just wanted to know what version of Irfan View you had, because the Image>Pallete has another menu drop down thing, so its like

                                      Image> Pallete> Edit Pallete
                                      Export Pallete
                                      Import Pallete
                                      And the only active button is the last one, but not the first two...


                                      So yeah just want to know what version of Irfan View you had making this.
                                      Thanks

                                        Thanks for this tut.
                                        I have no problem with indexing, you explained everything perfectly and it works, but after I import it and write it to ROM succesfully two files are created where ROM is: .pal and .spr files. Now without these files the game won't work. So what am I suposed to do with them. Should I turn them into some kind of pach and if I should,... how?

                                            Okay, I'm using the BETA1 version of unLZ.GBA, and I did everything that you said in the tutorial. But the things in my unLZ.GBA look different, such as the offsets for the palette and picture when I try to write into the ROM have a 00 in front, and I have 4 checkmark-able options instead of 3(but I only selected the ones in the tutorial).

                                            When I wrote the sprite in, it didn't do anything except change the picture's palette! It ended up looking like this:


                                            And this is what I wanted to put in:

                                              Did you even test it in the game?

                                                Yes.... Yesterday it showed up like a glitched up Taillow!

                                                But now it shows up in the game like normal... O_o

                                                    thankyou so much!, i couldnt get my head round how to index sprites until now!
                                                    EDIT: every time i index the sprite Unlz says its not, and it always ends up with 17 colours even when i do it right...
                                                    EDIT: i also tried with a sprite with 8 colours and it still said its not indexed. Any specific name i have to save it under. I think its the step on paint where im mucking up, because i dont see how C/ping the original sprite onto the messed up one indexes it.
