Newbie here.. Chrono Trigger overworld sprite help?
« on: March 19, 2012, 02:20:59 pm »
Hi - I've been trying to make some modifications to the Chrono Trigger overworld sprites, specifically Frogs sprite. I've used a couple different programs but have been unable to make much headway. I understand they're compressed sprites and I can locate the non-overworld sprites. But I cant seem to find exactly what I'm looking for.

Help! Please?

The PC sprites should be in a compressed packet at 0x059A56.

You can decompress and compress them with Temporal Flux.

Awesome, thanks! I found them.
I've since run into another problem.

Whenever I try to load the Chrono Trigger romhack "Flames of Eternity" into temportal flux, I get the error "Destination array was not long enough. Check DestIndex and length, and the array's lower bounds."
I can press continue, but it hangs on "Getting Location Exits"..  :\\

looks like a bug in the ROM caused by an older TF version.

Unlikely (though not impossible).  Most bugs in patches released in the last 5+ years come from other utilities.  When someone bothers to trackback, anyway.  Most error reports are "stuff's broken".

If you can send me an email with Flux version and a link or attachment of the patch, I will look into what is breaking when I have time.
