I tried insert custom sprite into my rom hack. I thought it was working but after enter sprite list filename, I got an error message:
**************ERROR********
Your ROM must be expanded
***************************
I also expanded my rom to 64MB but it still don't work.
Any ideas?

Sorry for my bad English. I'm from Vietnam so my English not very well.

Uh, 64MB? That's too big for the SNES to even handle.
(unless you count msu1)

How are you expanding your ROM? You should do it directly in Lunar Magic, either by saving at least one level or through File > Expand ROM.

I use Lunar Expand to expanded my rom to 64MB. Now I don´t know how to my hack back to 8MB(I don´t remember my hack is 8MB or 1MB)

Usually a hack is around 4MB, and yes 64MB is virtually impossible, as SNES has 24bit addressing which means (at theoretical best) you can have 16MB. So I doubt Lunar Magic supports expanding the ROM to that size.

Did you even edit anything in your ROM? LM should expand the ROM automatically once you edit it so that error message shouldn't even happen if you edited the ROM at least once before. (Assuming you didn't somehow use up all the freespace that was in there)

So if you didn't edit anything just get a new rom.
I think I know the cause for the confusion: He talks about mega bits and not mega bytes, not to mention that the proper abbreviation for mega bits is Mbits instead of MBs (mega bytes). After all, he expanded the ROM with Lunar Expand which itself can only go up 8 mega bytes. It doesn't help that Lunar Expand uses mega bits even when mega bytes are entered too...
Because of that, I assume he expanded his ROM to 8 mega bytes.

Now, here is the problem: Not many tools supports ROMs larger than 4MBs. Because of that, not many ROMs are larger than that size (VLDC9 is a notable exception).

Of course, my guess is that you, PMH, didn't enter the correct ROM or sprite tool didn't recognise it.

Oh, and eight bits usually equals one byte. Just a side note what a byte and what a bit is.

--------------------
Okay, my layout looks ugly.

I'm pretty sure I was enter the correct ROM. Now how to my ROM back to 8MB???

You didn't read everything, did you?

And can you check, how large your ROM actually is? There is a properties window for files (right click on a file on windows) which gives information about the file size. I really doubt you expanded your ROM to 64 mega bytes.

Anyway, you should port the stuff in your ROM to a new ROM (theoretically it is possible but you have to do it manually) and make sure to use Lunar Magic to expand your ROM and not Lunar Expand because the former can only go up to 4MB, mostly because not many tools support ExLoROMs.

--------------------
Okay, my layout looks ugly.

I was delete the old ROM and create a new ROM. I also use Lunar Magic to expanded my new ROM to 4MB but I still get that message. Why?

how are you running the tool. Maybe you're not putting the correct path to your ROM in.
