What is wrong with this sprite? The BMP file looks fine but when I convert it into a SPR file, it looks very messy. Any pixels out of place?

Hmm, odd... it looks as if things got a bit compressed. That is definitely not normal... hmm..

Things you should never do:
- Using more than 16 colors
- Using a custom color OUT of the first 16 colors.

In bmp format, the image is in 8bit... whoever it's compressed to 4bit by FFTPatcher. That's exactly why it messes up, you'll have to fix your sprite so it only uses the 16 first colors.

Anything is possible as long as it is within the hardware's limits. (ie. disc space, RAM, Video RAM, processor, etc.)
