Sprite Decompression for Mega Man X3 or Super Mario World?
« on: October 11, 2018, 08:08:09 pm »
I am wondering if there is a utility to help decompress sprites but I can't find any. The only one I could find was for Mega Man X3, GraphiX3, but when I tried to extract the .rar file that's created, it says this:



How can I fix this?

Also, how can I decompress Super Mario World?

You posted your image incorrectly.


It's not creating a .rar file, it's creating a .bin file.  "bin" is a generic extension used for a lot of things, including CD images, which is why your computer tries to open it in 7-Zip.  As shown at http://ximwix.net/mirrors/rhdn-old/index.php@topic=6763.0.html , you can open this .bin file in YY-CHR or another tile editor (like Tile Molester).

If you haven't configured Windows Explorer to show extensions for known file types, you should probably do that – it will likely save you a lot of confusion if you keep working with things like this.  (The precise way of doing so depends on your Windows version; Google will tell you more.)

Were you unable to find the answer with a Google search..?

Super Mario World is one of the most extensively-hacked games out there, and you can't find anything?  I am not impressed.

But fine.  I believe you want Lunar Compress.
