I have dug and clawed my way through google as well as here on the forums but I've never found any good mech sprites even when I do when I download and try to use them they end up some how getting cut in half or when I select them for and event graphic it only selects a corner of the sprite but anyways does anyone know where I can find good mech sprites???

Please be more specific; do you mean  sprites with mechanical style or sprites of a mech or mecha?  Granny's list of futuristic resources might help with the latter. (Sorry, Grannydeb, but I Wasn't certain if you had a version of the list here too.) Also, how big are the images? At least in the older makers, some large  items (such as magitech armor, large trees, and the like) took up more than one square, so you'd have to use more than one event object at a time to depict them; for example the Avadan mech below definitely takes up as much space as several normal sprites combined, though the background also seems to split it up weird when i try to put it in my maker.

When you use chacters that are larger than the 32x32 characters and/or are individual characters (as the one above), you need to make sure that there is a $ at the beginning of the file name. Even then, only a part of the character will show in the event in the editor, but it will look proper in the game.

Ah, OK. That's useful to know. *Tries it* Yes, that fixed the behavior in the maker. That's only necessary for character sets, not other event or resource types, correct?   And ! turns off transparency and offset?

No, that's not quite right.  ! turns off the offset, but it shouldn't turn off transparency.  $ is just the symbol to indicate single character sheets.  You can have a multiple character sheet where the cels are bigger than 32x32, I've done it before.  Putting a $ on it would mess it up.  The program would treat it like a single character.

Yes, you are right. I shouldn't have said and/or. It's just rare (in my experience anyway) to see a full character sheet of sprites larger than 32x32, except for maybe different sized people sprites (like Mack sprites for example). But yes, I worded that wrong.
