What You Need to Edit Sprites in Final Fantasy Tactics




Before you start editing sprites, you will need some basic tools and files. Here is a list of what you need:


  • An image file for Final Fantasy Tactics. This can be an ISO file that you can create from your original game disc, or a ROM file that you can download from various sources. Make sure you have a legal copy of the game before downloading any ROMs.



  • FFT Sprite Manager. This is a program that allows you to open, export, import, and edit sprites from the game. You can download it from here.



  • A graphics program that can edit palettes. Palettes are sets of colors that are used by the sprites. You will need a program that can view and edit palettes, such as Paint Shop Pro or Photoshop.



  • CD Mage. This is a program that allows you to insert modified sprites back into the game image file. You can download it from here.



How to Edit Sprites in Final Fantasy Tactics




Once you have all the tools and files ready, you can start editing sprites in Final Fantasy Tactics. Here are the basic steps:


  • Mount your FFT image file on a virtual drive using a program like Daemon Tools or Virtual CloneDrive. Alternatively, you can insert your FFT disc into your PC's drive.



  • Open FFT Sprite Manager and go to File > Open. Set the path to the sprite directory in the FFT disc, for example D:\BATTLE.



  • Pick a sprite that you want to edit. The names are in Engrish, so you may have to try several times to find what you want. For example, Aruma is Alma, Ramuza# are the different Ramza outfits, and Cloud is Cloud. For generic jobs, "_M" denotes male sprites and "_W" denotes female sprites.



  • Export the sprite by going to File > Export and save it wherever you want.



  • Open the exported sprite file with your graphics program. You will see two images: one for the sprite and one for the portrait. You can edit both of them as you wish, but make sure you don't change the size or position of the images.



  • Edit the palette of the sprite by going to Colors > Edit Palette or a similar option in your graphics program. You will see 16 colors that are used by the sprite. You can change them as you wish, but make sure you don't use more than 16 colors or change the order of the colors.



  • Save your edited sprite file as a BMP file with 4-bit color depth.



  • Import your edited sprite file into FFT Sprite Manager by going to File > Import and selecting your BMP file.



  • Save your changes by going to File > Save.



  • Open CD Mage and open your FFT image file.



  • Navigate to the sprite directory (BATTLE) and find the sprite file that you edited (for example, THIEF_M.SPR).



  • Right-click on the sprite file and select Import > From File. Select your edited sprite file from FFT Sprite Manager.



  • Save your changes by going to File > Save.



Congratulations, you have just edited a sprite in Final Fantasy Tactics! You can now play the game with your modified sprite and enjoy your custom character.


Tips and Tricks for Editing Sprites in Final Fantasy Tactics




Editing sprites in Final Fantasy Tactics can be fun and rewarding, but it can also be challenging and frustrating at times. Here are some tips and tricks that can help you with your spriting endeavors:


  • If you want to create original characters or change the appearance of existing characters drastically, you may want to use a base sprite that has a similar body type and pose as your desired character. For example, if you want to create a female knight, you may want to use Agrias or Meliadoul as a base sprite.



  • If you want to create new outfits or accessories for existing characters, you may want to use parts from other sprites that match your desired style. For example, if you want to give Ramza a hat, you may want to use parts from Mustadio or Orlandu's sprites.



  • If you want to create new classes or races for generic characters, you may want to use parts from other games that have similar sprites as FFT. For example, if you want to create a dragonkin class, you may want to use parts from Breath of Fire III or IV's sprites.



  • If you want to create new portraits for existing characters or original characters, you may want to use parts from other portraits that match your desired style. For example, if you want to create a portrait for a female knight, you may want to use parts from Agrias or Meliadoul's portraits.



  • If you want to create animated sprites for special effects or attacks, you may want to use parts from other sprites that have similar animations as your desired effect. For example, if you want to create a fireball attack, you may want to use parts from Luso or Balthier's sprites.

How to Test Your Edited Sprites in Final Fantasy Tactics




After you have edited your sprites in Final Fantasy Tactics, you may want to test them in the game and see how they look and work. There are two ways to do this: using an emulator or using a modded console.


An emulator is a program that simulates the hardware and software of a console on your PC. You can use an emulator to run your FFT image file with your modified sprites and play the game on your computer. Some of the most popular emulators for PlayStation are ePSXe, PCSX-R, and RetroArch. You will need a BIOS file and a plugin to run the emulator, which you can find online. You will also need a controller or a keyboard to play the game.


A modded console is a console that has been modified to run custom software and games. You can use a modded console to burn your FFT image file with your modified sprites onto a disc and play the game on your TV. You will need a modchip or a softmod to modify your console, which you can buy online or install yourself. You will also need a CD burner and a blank disc to burn the game.


Both methods have their advantages and disadvantages. An emulator is easier and cheaper to use, but it may not run the game perfectly or have some compatibility issues. A modded console is more authentic and reliable, but it may be more expensive and risky to use. You can choose whichever method suits you best.


How to Share Your Edited Sprites with Other Fans of Final Fantasy Tactics




If you are proud of your edited sprites and want to share them with other fans of Final Fantasy Tactics, you can do so by uploading them online and joining the modding community. There are many websites and forums where you can showcase your sprites, get feedback, download other sprites, and collaborate with other modders. Some of the most popular ones are:


  • Final Fantasy Hacktics: This is the largest and most active website for FFT modding. You can find tutorials, tools, patches, sprites, mods, and more. You can also join the forum and chat with other modders.
