AFAIK there aren't any tools that can extract sprites from all roms, since there are different ways of encrypting the sprites, which would all have to be implemented.

There actually is a tool for this that does sprites that are LZ compressed, but I can't recall it's name. For uncompressed sprites, TLP / Tile Layer Pro will have to do. In either case you are going to have to find the palette yourself. You can use VBA's tile viewer or sprite viewer or palette viewer if you know where in the game the graphics are used.

If you only want to rip them can I suggest an emulator instead, even vanilla VBA has a decent tile, map and BG viewer inbuilt. Saves you scrambling to find the palette as well (you will still probably have to scan through the in memory palettes mind but that is a 16 choice slider rather than the entire rom plus encoding methods and worse dynamic palettes (rapid changes of colour- Mr Driller multi blocks being a good example are often done by this). If you want to up the ante here most GBA roms bundle like data together so with a little bit of work you can usually track down later stuff if you have the location of early sprites.

There have been a couple of compression tools that can do scan roms for graphics but I reckon the one Heran Bago is thinking of is unLZ-GBA:

It is pretty good but I reckon crystaltile2 takes it these days for BIOS compatible compression searches and if you can forgo graphics there are others now as well (romhacking.net has most of them).

    Do you use 8bit equipment for the music and FL studio
  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    I did notice one particularly bad bit of text formatting (and minor typo): in the UFO fight, when trying to shoot at the bottom, it says "Looks like the UFO have some kinda shield" - "has" is better. Also, the very next text box has "L et's try shooting the top instead!" with a line break in the word "Let's".

    @kenenthk I used OpenMPT to make all the music. My brother will be helping out with some more tunes in the future!
  • KimKong @ KimKong:
    @RichardTheKing Thank you so much for pointing out that dialog bug!! I never noticed it while finishing up these new boss fights..

    And that gap on that level should be close enough to jump if you run? I might have to lower that platform a bit maybe?
