    Pokemon Mixed Platinum is a ROM hack of Platinum where every Pokemon has a new type, along with new abilities and moves. That means every Pokemon will also have a new look, and that's where you come in. If you are creative and love spriting, this is the project for you!

    GETTING THE SPRITES:

    1. Download this folder and open it: http://www.mediafire.com/?ehinhurzoqq49ek
    2. Open PokeDSPicPlatinum.exe (Windows only)
    3. Go to File, select Open narc
    4. Open pl_pokegra.narc
    5. Click the drop-down menu and scroll down to whatever Pokemon you are doing.
    6. When you find the one you want, click Save PNG. Do this for the first Back and first Front sprites. ONLY SAVE THE ONES WITH THE NUMBER (1930) NEXT TO IT. Do not save any with the number (48). This isn't the actual sprite, it's the pallete information.


    EDITING THE SPRITES​

    If you don't have Photoshop or anything more advanced than MSPaint, read on. For those that do, skip to the next paragraph.
    - Go HERE and download Graphics Gale (Free Edition). Install it and run it.
    - Open the sprites you saved from the previous section.
    - You should see several different windows. The only 2 you need are "Pallete" and the main window. Feel free to close everything else.
    - The Pallete window is important. If you want to have different colors, you MUST change one of the old colors in the palette. Do NOT create a new color. The number of colors you have should NEVER exceed past the 1st row of the Palette window (which has 16, the maximum a Pokemon sprite is allowed).
    - The top right menu has a bunch of tools. The only ones you really need for simple editing are Magnifier, Lasso, Pen, and Flood Fill. They work just like they do in Paint.
    - When you're done, save it as a PNG.

    PHOTOSHOP USERS
    - When you open up the sprite, you should be in Indexed Color Mode. Do not switch to a different mode.
    - If you want to have different colors, you MUST change one of the old colors in the palette by going to Image > Mode > Color Table, then click on one of the colors and change it. Do NOT create a new color.
    - When you're done, save it as a PNG.
    ----PHOTOSHOP SHORTCUT----
    If you've changed the colors on front sprites, and want the back sprites to have the same colors, you don't need to change each color manually.
    On your front sprite, simply go to Image > Mode > Color Table, click Save and save the palette as a .act. Then go to your backsprite, go back to the Color Table, and click Load and load the .act. Your back sprites will now have the same colors as your front sprites!

    DO NOT USE, CHANGE, OR GET RID OF THE BACKGROUND COLOR. This color will show up as transparent in the game.

    When you're finished, your sprites should be in the following format:

    [​IMG]
    Back Sprites (both frames)

    [​IMG]
    Front Sprites (both frames)

    Feel free to ask any questions.



    WHAT NOT TO DO:

    1. DO NOT scratch or redo the whole sprite. Keep the original pose as much as possible.
    2. DO NOT use more than 15 colors (including black and white) in your sprite. This is VERY important. I suggest only changing the original colors and not to add any new colors.
    3. DO NOT make your sprite bigger than 80 x 80 pixels. Try and make it similar in size to the original sprite.
    4. DO NOT spend too much time on one Pokemon. Retyping shouldn't take that long. For the most part, all you really need to do is recolor the sprite and scratch some minor parts. You can fuse *small* parts from other Pokemon if you want, but it should NOT look like a fusion or a new Pokemon.



    THIS IS A CONTEST IN DISGUISE!

    When all this is complete, I'll be giving awards to the best sprites and spriters in the thread. Here are some of the titles you can win:

    BEST SPRITER - The one who contributed the highest quality sprites.
    MOST PRODUCTIVE SPRITER - The one who contributed the highest quantity sprites.
    MOST CREATIVE SPRITE - The Pokemon that got turned into a typing that no one expected, but still turned out great.

    Each person can only win one award so if the best spriter is also the most productive, the most productive award will go to the next person in line.

    Winners will receive the following prizes:

    -A spot on the first post of the new Super Spriting Thread.
    -A special trophy with their name on it.
    -The choice of any one Pokemon from my trade thread.
    -Chance to download and play the game before anyone else.

    Everyone who contributes and makes it in the game will receive credit. Everyone will also receive a folder of all the edited sprites in the game.


    First Priority
    SINNOH DEX POKEMON


    - The type next to the Pokemon is the type it will become.
    - If a Pokemon doesn't have a new typing beside it, you can choose whatever new type you want. Be creative!
    - Once you post what Pokemon you will do, it will be reserved for you. You can reserve as many as you want, but you have one week to finish all four frames of the Pokemon. If you don't post anything within that week, you lose your reservation and I or someone else can take your spot.
    - I reserve the right to edit any sprite you post before it goes in the game.

    Well look at that, somebody already took the Magby line...I'm not much of a spriter anyways, though.

    Hmmm...I'd like to give this a shot! I might need to work on 'em alot, but I can try! Besides, I gotta do something for Smogon besides occupying it with posts.

    Could I reserve a Water/Ice Heatran?

    Hmmm... I think I'm gonna be in it to win it!

    Reserving Fighting Type Hoothoot line and Dragon Type Magikarp line, if I may.

    EDIT: Lord Jesseus is back! Woop! (Seen your work earlier on in the Super Spriting thread, <3 it)

    Could I reserve Fire/Dragon Scizor?

    EDIT: Make that Fire/Flying Scyther as well.

    EDIT2: Actually, rather than pigeonhole myself into types beforehand, I'll just reserve the two Pokémon and see which typing looks best. You can expect to see Dragon in there somewhere though. ;)

    I feel so stupid, I accidentally did the HGSS sprite on accident, but this is an electric/dragon gyarados, I'll do it for the platinum sprite soon ahaha. u__u

    But first, I think I'll do a Fire/Dark Gengar (WIP)

    [​IMG]

    Edit: It seems Iggdrasil stole the magikarp line. Would you mind if I did it?

    Maybe I'll stop in to make something. I don't want to spend too much work here 'cause I'm already invested in Project Amethyst. I'm reserving the Magnemite line. They might look good as Psychic types.

    Could I take the Combee Line? I think Bug/Steel would really capitalize on Vespiquen's defensive prowess.

    Why stop at Bug/Steel? Why not Ghost/Steel with levitate? Anything's possible =P

    Either way the Gyarados line will be Dragon, if you get it done first that's fine.
    The Gengar looks great! You can do Haunter and Gastly too, to keep it consistent with your style.

    Non-Sinnoh Pokemon aren't as high priority right now, but see what you can do.

    @Server Crash
    Reserved. Try changing Zubat up a little bit so it's not just a recolor. Make it more mechanical looking like a robot.

    Wait...don't put Dragoon as Pachirisu's type. It might be, but I'm having other thoughts on my WIP.

    Oh alright, I didn't know that. In that case, I'll reserve Ponyta's line (you can find it in the grass patch above the town with the day care). Is that alright? It'll be grass

    This sounds like fun dude.
    I'd like to do Houndour and Houndoom and turn them into Fire/Ghost, if that's okay?
    I'll try to get it done by this week.

    I haven't done anything similar to this in a long time, so before I reserve anything may I ask if we can do dual-types? If we can I'd like to try Ice/Psychic Machop.

    EDIT: Alright, thanks, Tyrant. Although I think I'm gonna do a plain Ice one since I'm not sure how I'd do the other stuff. c:

    I'm sure it's fine since many other people did (ie. I did Water / Ice Heatran).

    Hey, can we submit all four sprites on one image, or should I seperate them?

    Edit-No problem, Kipp. Hope it turns out well!
