    Hello. I'm modifying Pokemon Alpha Sapphire. I would like to edit the images. After converting my own png into bclim, I found that its size was too large. For example, my own png is 3KB, the bclim is 64KB. Is there something wrong? The tool I used is png2bclim. BCLIM Output Format is set to 9-RGBA8888.
    Thanks.

    What are the dimensions of your png?

    64 kb is 0x10000 bytes, or 0x4000 pixels for rgba8888...which is 128x128 or similar.

    I'm pretty sure there's not actually a problem, and the sizes being produced are the expected sizes. :)

    My png is 55x30 pixels. And if it's not a problem, is there any ways to make the bclim's size smaller?:lol:

    You can't reduce a bclim's size, unfortunately, but why would you even want to? Not like storage size is particularly limited...

    Hmm... I mean that is there any way to "compress" a bclim? 64KB is too large. Original bclim that unpacked is 2.07KB.

    If you care about size, be sure that you are creating a new bclim with the same imageformat as the original file.

    Thanks a lot. Finally I use EFE to convert png into bclim.
