Unearthed Update: October 21st (Sprite Conversion III)

I’m not dead! I was just sick for about a week and a half, which really put a hamper on game progress and blog updates. I’m right back into the swing of things though, and I’m aiming to have all the game’s sprites implemented within the next couple of weeks.


Getting sprites into the ROM is pretty easy! Well, finicky and repetitive I suppose, but there isn’t a whole lot that can go wrong. You simply put the right .png files in the right places, make sure all the sizes and palettes match up. There is a really simple-to-use editor within PK Hack (seen above) too, which has made life very easy for me.

I spent a few hours today working on overworld sprites and managed to plow through NPCs for Glensborough and The Boding Sea. I’ll keep posting progress updates on this blog and on my Twitter, and will let you all know how things are moving along.
