Sounds good, hope to see a update.

By the way, we're done with the portraits hack, ShadowOne333 just submitted it to the site.
Now I'm very looking forward to what other hacks you guys can come up with. I heard there's a chance you can completely remove the seals at the end of boss battles? If so, I'll be saving my playthrough with the new portraits until that's done!
Thanks! Yeah, it was hard figuring out the skeleton format, the code is so complicated I just opted to change things at random and see what it affected in game, only reading the code for certain things. If you're curious about it here are my notes on the skeleton format:
For DoS and PoR the skeletons were compiled differently I think, so rather than them having their own files they're all hardcoded into overlay files for each enemy. It might just be impossible to parse these depending on how hardcoded it is. But it's too soon to say for sure, some of the sprite files are hardcoded and I found a way to display those.
Well good news, I managed to get a gfx editor working!
It's not done yet but it should be in the next version.
You need to know the filename and palette pointer to export it, and then you can edit the gfx and palette separately and reimport them. Note that my program needs RAM palette pointers to work, but thanks to the ROM pointers DarkSamus posted I managed to find the game's list of palettes for each portrait.
By the way, in your thread you said you were interested in removing the magic seals from bosses? I've got a patch that makes it act like julius mode (ends instantly without needing the touchscreen) if you want, though I've barely tested it at all.
