Tip: After editing your overworld, make sure to use an EMPTY save file, as save files with progress may load Mario's position based on previous versions of the overworld. Note that altered level flags will also only take effect on new save files.

Sprite Tool Errors

Okay, I'm using Sprite Tool 1.4, and I'm trying to insert the "waterfix" sprite so that the tides don't "follow Mario" when vertical scrolling is enabled. However, I'm running into trouble. Sprite Tool always gives me the error: "INIT location specified invalidly".

I've read all the readme files and I looked through the tutorial sections and nothing has helped me thus far. I'm using sprite_tool.exe, not xkas, so the .asm file has: dcb "INIT" and dcb "MAIN" instead of the other format. And yes, I've checked the temp.log file and the tempasm.asm file for help, but to no avail.

I've also checked the .cfg file in relation to ones that came with Sprite Tool and it looks fine (there isn't that extra "01" at the bottom).

What am I doing wrong here?


I don't know if waterfix is a sprite, shooter or generator.

If it's a Sprite:00-BF Standard Sprites
If it's a Shooter:C0-CF Shooters
If it's a Generator:D0-DF Generators

Like you wouldn't set the number of a custom generator to 05 or something.

If this isn't the problem maybe someone else has more insight.

Oh no, I've tried all three types (and I know that Sprite Tool found the file because it didn't give that specific error message). I'm pretty sure its a generator though, but nevertheless it doesn't work in all three cases. Thank you though.

Make sure it's in the generator folder. Does it crash the level that it's in? I've had a problem like that.
I retried this again with the generator folder. It still doesn't work. The game runs fine, but there is NO effect (yes, I've inserted the custom sprite, turned sprite buoyancy on, etc, etc). A green shell, buzzy beetle, or whatever the original sprite command it pointed to, appears, not the waterfix sprite.

Sprite Tool DOES say that it wrote XXXX amount of bytes and gave a PC and SNES address. However, the error appears on the next line and so I believe it cuts the insertion-to-the-ROM short.

EDIT:

Hmm, hold on, I think I left something that may be of great importance. In the tempasm.asm file, the very top of the file says "lorom", and the next line says "org $008000". This might help...hopefully...in some way.
Are they in the same folder?

Well, the ROM isn't in the same folder, but I just run through the filepath TO the ROM:

../../roms/smw.smc

And it works (because one time I mistyped it and it gave me the "ROM not found" error)

I just used Lunar Expand as per one of the video tutorials on Youtube, and it just destroyed my ROM. Oh well, I'll just start anew. *sigh*

Yeah, I live in Kapolei, but I'm usually in Kaimuki because I go to Chaminade U.

You are placing it in the generator folder along with it's cfg, typing D0 waterfix.cfg into the sprite list, and typing it correctly into SpriteTool, yes? You are using romi's SpriteTool? Did you delete TRASM or xkas?

EDIT: Wait, it says lorom? org? Isn't this a patch, not a generator?
