Look in the modelling forum for the uber compact tutorials thread - found this for you :)

On sprites, by Shijing:


" well, if your here, its becuase you need help! well, im gonna put an end to all these goddam threads about how to make sprites!

lets start with what programs:
1: sprite wizard, d/l it here!
2:sprite viewer, here!
save them for now, i'll say there uses in a min ^_^

next, how to extract bmp files from sprite files:
1. open sprite wizard
2. open the sprite you wnat to work on
3. click on file/save sequence and click ok.
you will now have a set of .bmp's you can edit.. yaay!

next, how to use all the colours:
1. buy or d/l adobe phostshop or paintshop pro
2. open the .bmp
3.click on image/mode/rbg colour in the top bar
now you have a set of fully editable .bmps! yaay

what to keep in mind when editing:
1. the size of the image must stay as a multiple of 8 and under 256
2. when finished editing the image, remeber to turn it back to indexed colors, jsut do what you did for rbg colour but click on indexed colours
3. name then in file order like 1.bmp,2.bmp and 3.bmp!

4. you MUST keep them in the same colour pallette, you can do this by editing one, saving it in indexed colour, makin another one, copyin the image and pasting over the indexed one and saving as a different file! easy stuff

now onto the next step, compiling, above, i have listed the requirements for the image, so lets go on:
1. open sprite wizard
2. click next and select your images
3. click next, if it has a problem, it will state what..
4.click next again, ignore all the stuff here
5.now you can see your sprite in action, click play to see if its good.
6. click next and save! your finished! one new sprite!!! YAAAY!!

that was fun, wasnt it? well, if you dont understand them, learn english, these are as simple as they come! if you have any problems, you can always post here and i'll give it a try!

ps: i hope this gets pinned, it will stop all those sprite n00b's from postin how to make sprites and would give guys a helpin hand!o_O "
