I need some help with MMX3
« on: September 18, 2020, 04:17:27 pm »
I want to dive head first VRAM of Mega Man X3 and change some of the sprites. How would one go about extracting, modifying, and re-inserting sprites hidden in the VRAM?

Depends on the sprites. The normal general sprites like the life bars, explosions, "lemon shot", etc.. are compressed and get stored there pretty much when the game boots up. They can be decompressed, modified and recompressed using:

Though, I think this one forces all compressed graphics to be stored somewhere else in expanded space. If that's what you want then you should be good with editing most things here.
