Description: *Basic hex editing knowledge required to insert icons into ROM. (As well as use them.) (In short, put the compressed dmp in freespace, and change the pointer of the icon you want to swap. Caledor made a tutorial here:

Those who are making icons must remember you are limited to a 16 color palette. (Transparent + 15 colors) - And that these colors are the same ones in the first row of VBA's Tools>Palette Viewer; Sprite Palette (Right section), top row (Skip first color since it represents transparent.)

v1 (Oct 27, 2015) = Initial build - Allowed for compressing basic dmp files.
v2 (Oct 30, 2015) = Added compressing from image (Five image formats supported: .bmp, .jpg, .gif, .png, .tif)
v3 (Dec 1, 2019) = You can now have multiple icons in one image (Side-by-side/no border padding... should an icon be cut off by the width/height of the image, then it'll just be skipped.), and each will be compressed to its own file. (iconout#.dmp)
v4 (Dec 4, 2019) = Now with easy editing. I mean, you now get icon sheets. Edit them, and even add icons if you want to! (Icons at *end* starting with a white pixel (0xFFFFFFFF) will be skipped.) If you use gsmagic text editor, you may want to change freespace address in the inserticons text file. Anyway, after you have edited the icons, and placed your ROM (named as gs2.gba) in this directory, you should drag the text file onto the app, and the rest is done for you. :) = Oh and this is only for the GS2 portion. You can still use this version the same way you have older versions as well.

Fox: (Uh... Ignore "Love" at the beginning... I think I started to say it in a different way, then changed my mind.)

Fox: Love gsiconcompressor has been updated... Mainly an attempt to make icon editing a bit more straight-forward than ever before. Although, the coding wasn't exactly that straight-forward.

Fox: So like... a layers offset might normally be located at +0xC, but in Tennis, it is at +0x10)

Fox: (Talking about the data in map header thingy.)

Fox: So took a look at Tennis.... Seems Atrius's editor displays all maps incorrectly because he forgot that some stuff was offsetted by 4 (You know with everything from layer offsets and files/etc.)  Fix that, and it seems to display properly. Hm.

Salanewt: Especially since there might be a v0.5.1.1 in the near future, if any bugs are found by people playing the demo.
November 11, 2019, 03:26:38 AM
Salanewt: Oh yeah, so for people who aren't aware; v0.5.1 of the AI Overhaul is available on the Discord, but I'm delaying the creation of a downloads page + topic until I finish the demo.
November 02, 2019, 12:05:31 PM
Fox: And yeah, there's a topic for the Discord. in News & Announcements (

Fox: Went to go study some German a little earlier. (Using duolingo to give it a try.) ... And. Huh. German capitalizes all nouns? (Not necessarily pronouns, though.)

thenightsshadow: Didn't realize there was a Discord at all.

Fox: (Which I guess not having Special badges in inventory was by purpose.... So I'll ifnore that bit. Just whats with the dup Halloween badge in inv?)
October 31, 2019, 07:18:26 AM
Fox: Question about badges = Why do I have two of the same Halloween badge in my inventory... but not on my profile? And by two, I mean the Honk badge is not there.

Fox: Does tns want to join the most active part of GSHC? - Its Discord? :D  And welcome back!

Fox: (Ofcourse it would be capitalized if it were the name of a system, and anytime that system would be referenced... but I'm more going with why we *never* see Psynergy and Djinni not capitalized.)

thenightsshadow: Yeah, just kinda got an email out of nowhere and it reminded me.
October 31, 2019, 06:42:40 AM
Fox: and main reason I said "not intended to become part of English" ... was because I thought of words like "animals"... and they can technically still be lowercase at times.

Fox: group/type/thing/whatever

Fox: Not saying it is exacly that... but it is a thought, at least.
