The techniques on the tutorial are quite outdated for today's standards. It was cool back in 2002, but nowadays are better ways to get character sprites.
Your method will result in inaccurate axis position for every sprite, and more than probable, missing sprites.

What you would do nowadays is:

- Easiest way: Get a spritepack already ripped, preferably from a reliable source such as AOKManiac or other good rippers.
Don't get spritepacks from Kong (badly ripped and missing stuff) or from random spritesheets (loss of axis, not sure if all sprites have been properly ripped)

If you want to go the DIY route or if now spritepack is available, then:
- The majority of Neo Geo/Capcom games have debug object/character tests available. You can relate to N.'s cheat tables to have quick access to them: http://mugenguild.com/forum/topics/mame-cheats-for-sprite-ripping-thread-v-2-908-175387.0.html

If there are no cheat tables for the game or a debug object easily available, then:
- Use Artmoney or CheatEngine to lock the character in a fixed position, keeping the axis of the sprites in the right location
- Use Artmoney or CheatEngine to locate the sprite number/index adress and increase it manually, ensuring that you never miss any sprite
- Use AnimGet to automatically take a screenshot every time a new sprite is drawn on screen
