tool New Sprite Replacement Tool for Gen 4 Games

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi!  This is my first time making a modding tool.  One day I was modding Pokemon Platinum, and thought "I wish there was a tool that was easier to use".  And so, here we are.  

Credit to loadingNOW and SCV for the original programs.  

Games supported:

Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, Heartgold, Soulsilver

Program features:

Load, view, and export Pokemon sprites from the main sprite narc for the supported games.  

Load, view, and insert sprites form bmp, gif, or png images

Allows splitting of spritesheets with the 'Canvas splitter' option

Lazy conversion for GBA-style sprites into DS-style sprites(64x64 to 160x80)

Auto-conversion of non-indexed images(where possible)

Fixes unsupported colors(ie, colors that don't follow the 'rule of 8')

Allows importing of 256x64 full spritesheets(aka APSE formatted images)

Includes a tool that attempts to match the palettes of images that were not created to be together(rarely succeeds)  

What the program does NOT do:

Support for alternate-form narcs

Height adjustment

How to use:

1.) Download both files

2.) Read the readme(highly recommended; some features are difficult to understand)

3.) Run the tool

4.) Post any bugs or suggestions here!

 

If you see any mistakes or omissions in this post, please let me know!

Thanks for listening, and I hope this helps some people!

 

UPDATE:  

It has now been over two months with no bugs reported.  Either there aren't any, or nobody cares enough to report them.  Either way, I've put this off long enough.

I've never posted a project on github before, so I just hope I did it right:

No.  I will release the source code, but not until I'm confident that I've fixed most of the bugs.

Ah ok because people who are interested and technical would also jump in and fix the bugs. Up to you though.

Can you please also release a tool to modify also trainer pics? HG/SS have censored pics for international roms, maybe could be fixed with a tool like your.

That is outside the scope of the project.  I believe PokeDSPic works for that, though.

Do you have source on GitHub?

 

In case you're still interested, the source code is now on github.  The link has been added to the original post.
