Streets of Rage 2 editing compressed sprites??
« on: June 27, 2016, 09:06:54 pm »
Hi, im using Sor Pancake 2 for editing sprites for Streets of Rage 2, but cannot edit some enemies because those are compressed sprites, any possible solution for this problem?

If you want to edit the enemies and bosses, you'll need a decompressor tool to decompress their sprites.

If there's any tools that can do it they are probably at that link. I think character portraits must not have been uncompressed yet cause all the character hacks I saw used the same portraits.

SOR2 uses a different compression routine from SOR1&3, which I don't know the name of. By the way, the character select portraits are compressed.
