Small update! Adds a little flexibility to importing Program data, and adds support for a couple more games. That makes 65 games so far!

--------11/01/2023: Rev 1.3--------
######################### Improved PRG Interleaving! #########################
   The script has become more flexible by introducing import parameters. They work
   much and such the same as append, only they load the data to the start of the file
   as opposed to slapping it on the end. This allows games like Saturday Night Slam-Masters
   to have all it's program data properly read. Admittedly a bit slap dash but should get the job
   done. Let me know if any bugs spring up
   EXAMPLE:

   #Import this data first before we interleave anything
   prg_import = ["mbe_23e.8f",0x80000]
   import_swapendian = 2 #Swap the endian. 2 Indicates a length of 16-bits, so every 2 bytes

   ######################### NEWLY SUPPORTED GAMES #########################
   ---Graphics Data ----
   ringdest - Ring of Destruction/SlamMasters 2

   ---Program Data ----   
   forgottn - Forgotten Worlds
   
   ---Graphics and Program Data ----
   3countb - 3 Count Bout/Fire Suplex
   aodk - Aggressors of Dark Kombat
   punisher - The Punisher
   slammast - Saturday Night SlamMasters

The tile execution is pretty impressive. I just wish you'd made the different layers have more difference in color.

Couple of non-issues:
- You left debugbg on
- Likewise there are 61 unused palettes in the sff
- For the extra flavor you could've used CPS-2 camera parameters

Drat! I had a SFF showing every WIP version to send to the commissioner. Must've forgotten to remove them from the public one. My bad!
Wdym by camera parameters? Stages are definitely not my strong suit so i'm not sure what ya meant here

Sorry for the late response, i get sidetracked easily lol
Anyway, most of those games are easy to enough to add yaself. Simply add a resource file with the needed info and ya good. If it's CPS1/2 or Neo-Geo that is
Haven't really delved in to PGM yet, and those other games store GFX in different ways i don't really think i care enough to learn about tbh

In regards to the whole sprite thing, there is no bit. Ya get the raw tiles, you'd have to combine em yourself. Ya could study how games assemble sprites to get that exact data or whatnot but still

Of course it's possible, but most sound files are raw so the stitcher isn't needed for em. That's another field i want to study eventually but not rn

Was commissioned a while back to make a fighting game mockup, but because i'm extra for no reason at all, decided to mockup the fighting game in Mugen (Here is the final thing if ya curious)

The idea was to try and replicate a CPS2 stage as faithfully as i could. There are 3 sprites representing the 3 background layers and every sprite is composed of 16x16 tiles, each using one 16 colour pallete (least to the best of my ability as far as i can tell)
Good learning experience if nothing else, hope ya dig it!

Showcase of the thing on YT

Yet another update! The Stitcher has undergone some retooling, and can now interleave/append program data! This makes editing code/values much simpler! Alongside that, the script now displays the status of your ROMs files, as well as if you have interleaved GFX/PRG data already, hopefully making it more clear what ya can and can't do at any given time. Lastly, quite a few games have been added, such as Ghouls 'n Ghosts, Caddilacs and Dinosaurs, Alien VS Predator, among others! Check the first post for the Github revision 1.2! Refer to readme.txt and what's new.txt for more info!

In truth i mostly use TM as a way or exporting the tiles i wanna edit in a program i like. YY-CHR can technically do the job too but i think showing how ya can mess with the tiles in external programs more comfortable for artists, least i think so

Hope ya find it useful! Lemme know if ya have any issues

Slight update: Seems i forgot to properly update magdrop3. Now works properly. While i was at it, added a couple more games
vsav2 - Vampire Saviour 2: The Lord of Vampire
vhunt2 - Vampire Hunter 2
galaxyfg - Galaxy Fight: Universal Warriors
Simply redownload the stitcher. Also updated the bundled Tile Molestor so there shouldn't be any weirdness now

After a while of bashing my head in to a wall, finally feel comfortable showing this off properly!
For a long time i've wanted to rip arcade accurate sprites, and even to edit them. To that end, made this script that takes the de-interleaved ROMs of any given Neo-Geo game (pre-99) and any CPS2 game and outputs it as tiles that the game itself would read. Ya can then open this data in Tile Molestor in order to not only rip the exact tiles, but even edit them!

Went and put SF6 Chun Li in as well, had to learn how SF2 constructs sprites to get it to load properly but hey :p

Been doing some CPS2 GFX hacking as of late, so drew this SF6 Ryu sprite as a test

Glad ya dig it! The script automatically outputs what the game sees, so i imagine turbo timings would display properly, though i admit i haven't properly looked. As for velocities and the like, they are 1.1 with the source games. The velocity values should work out the box with Mugen since the script automates the calculation of WORDS to Floats
Different script but the fundamental idea is the same


Also, New update! (The images are slightly old but still show the new things) Check first post for the link
REVISION 1.4
- Added a new mode, Address. This displays the raw Unit ID addresses for stuff like Velocity and Anim, hopefully streamlining the usage of Watchpoints and the like via MAME
- The Lua now displays the AnimElem data in real-time. Can swap the Endian by pressing Z, by default it displays the data the game sees, whereas swapping the Endian views the raw data from the program data you would see in any given Hex Editor

YET ANOTHER UPDATE, CHECK FIRST POST!
Mainly for XMCOTA. It handles sprites slightly differently than the other VS Games, as it uses 2 Pointers as opposed to 1. Script now accommodates it, alongside the script running adjusting based on game, and added the name of the current game for fun. These 2 screenshots didn't need the script to be disabled

It SHOULD run smoothly with every VS Game now. Lemme know of anything useful i could add in future!
