Hi, I'm making custom graphics for my game, yet I've run into a problem where a single fence tat I placed down doesn't look like how it should, compared to the sheet. I'm setting it up as an A tile, or a ground tile. Everything else looks normal, and it doesn't seem to be the set-up that's the problem, just extra pixels on the fences single-tile sprite.

Anything within the orange spaces are used to make the single tile, the top left tile isn't actually used in the mapping process but to appear in the editor for your ease of identification. The problem is because the horizontal parts on the bottom are leaking into the corners.

That's because the engine doesn't use the upper-left part of the autotile (that's just used in the tile selection), instead it combines parts from the lower section. This blog post explains how autotiles are set up, though it is for Ace so the numbers are a bit off (instead of 16, for mv it would be 24 for example).

Thank you guys for the advice! I manged to fix the error, and the fence looks normal again. I can kinda of understand why the tiles would be set up like that, but at the same time it's a little inconvenient... I appreciate the help very much!

now seems like the worst time for me to need a better computer with how much stuff is costing. that and I don't thing there's much else I can do to make MV run any better with what I have.
Sigh... to have some variety in this weather. More than just sun and rain and wind and thunder.
In the meantime, I've discovered that I'm slowly becoming fatigued from the many sleepless nights my neighbors cause. Or at least their dogs. Always barking at something.
I might need a day to just sleep and recharge.
