Basic Weapon Icon Editing and Insertion

Recommended Posts

Explanation by shadowofchaos:


I personally don't use TLP anymore. I go on GBA Graphics Editor, and edit the weapon icons in one fell swoop image.

In fact, you can repoint it and then add as many icons as you want within the free space.

Here's my notes while I was messing with it. When I expanded it, I repointed it somewhere else.



Basically, "Save as bitmap", and edit it. BE WARNED, do NOT use any other colors other than the 16 colors the weapon icons use, or you WILL screw up stuff. That means editing the FE4 palette/colors on the image of the FE4 weapon icon itself manually. Otherwise you'd have the result you had in your post:

(Note about the "your post". This was originally a response to someone else's question, instead of a full tutorial.)

Expanded one:

Editing:

And, if you want an "easier" to manage image, change the "Width" to "2":

You can click the "+Block" 4 times each to move 1 weapon icon down.

When you want to insert it back into the ROM when you're done, click "Import a bitmap", but also make sure to UNCHECK the "Import palette" and the "Abort if graphics are bigger" option.

Result:

That Amiti icon was by VincentASM, the Elincia mug was by Rexstatic basing it off the FE9 one, and the Tempest Blade was my attempt at one.

Anyways, since you're testing this on FE6, here's my notes on that:



And for you FE8 people:



To edit the "Affinities" and "Weapon Level" icons you can see in this image, change the "palette index" to "1" instead of 0.

Nice tutorial!

Very handy, this'll be quite helpful for newer hackers (Like me lol) who don't have the ability to "try new stuff".

For FE8, the pointer to weapon icon data is located at 36B4 (for the status screen) and 3788 (Battle screen text boxes).

Woah wait, why are you replying to a thread from 2011?
