Re: DKCRE is amazing

I'm not sure I understand what's going on here. A video would be awesome to show the bug in action.

Is it like, you select some tiles and then try to paste some that you already copied?

I won't be able to fix anything until NitroGUI v3.0 has been implemented and I'm in a position to update DKCRE.

Re: Looking for DKC Animated sprites

The extractor is built into DKCRE.

Just load up a v1.0U ROM, and go to the MODE button on the far right and select Extraction. That should get you where you need to go.

DKCLB doesn't do ROM hacks, it is a toolkit for a PC-based game engine and game editor (DELTA).

DKCX is therefore not a ROM hack.
