This isn't really related to SMW in general, but rather a tool. You see, Romi's Spritetool works great. It's perfect. Essential. But here's the drawback for me.

It starts up, I enter "1337h4x01nglelelel.smc" in command prompt, then "sprites.txt." Does everything at light speed. But then. BUT THEN. After a few times of doing this when I'm fixing/experimenting with a sprite, it slows down IMMENSELY.

It's gone from inserting about 20 sprites in seconds to taking almost 10 minutes. Am I the only one experiencing this? Do I have a horrible computer? Is there any way to fix this? Why am I asking so many questions? Find out on the next episode of Dragon Ba-wait wrong context.

But in all seriousness this is really annoying and I'd love to solve the problem.
Maybe it's the name of your ROM. Change it into Super Mario World something or SMW. Or the no. of sprites you inserted. This happened to me, but the sprites still got inserted. It wasn't that quick, but not very long either.

The name was a joke #w{x(}

It could be the number of sprites, but it takes forever to start inserting the next one.
I've heard plenty of stories about Sprite Tool not liking Dropbox and antiviruses. Try moving it outside the Dropbox folder and disabling the AV.

I disabled AVG and it's still VERY slow when inserting sprites.

Would it help if I said I'm using Spritetool 1.4.0/the mikeyk version compatible with SA-1?
Yes, I sometimes get that when adding a large number of sprites.

Unrelated, but was your layout actually removed or is that text on purpose?

It was removed and I'm too lazy to put work into a new one with more silly gifs.
I see.

Sprite Tool is pretty slow. In fact, I have got a similar problem with its speed albait it runs faster on mine computer. Pretty much one of the signs, that Sprite Tool is an old tool (or at least an old inserted). There is nothing to do untill waiting (and believe me, currently* no one has got known plans to do a new Sprite Tool) or at least, only run the most important programms.

*Pronounciation on "currently" because there is a Sprite Tool which is not only WIP but also on ice.
