    Hello. And so, as the title says, how do I make larger sprite? Please give me detailed description, please. And thanks for your time.

    One more question: Am I posting in the right section? Very sorry if not.

    That is amazing! The only problem is, I can't even see my sprite in the 'output folder'. The file is there but it is blank. Help?

    Edit: Oh, wait! I get it now. It's there. Now, for the (hopefully) last problem.

    1) How do I get rid of the black box?

    2) What is the green thing near the sprite's skirt?

    Thank you.

    There's two ways:  You could open the file in a paint program, set the background as transparent then save it as a PNG.  The other way would be to use the import manager and click what you want to be set as transparent.  The paint program way gives you more flexibility and allows you to work with partial transparencies.

    I dunno what the green thing is.  I'm assuming it's transparent there so you're seeing the grass behind her.

    when using the resource manager to import and in the case that the manager doesn't detect a transparancy layer in the graphic, you'll be able to set one or two colors as transparent by clicking into the preview. If you click on the wrong point, then a false color will turn transparent - this might be the reason why in the above case black stays black but some other pixels turned transparend and show the green beyond...

    Start the filename with '!$' as in '!$Gate1.png'  to make bigger sprites (this can only hold a 3x4 of 96x64 sprites). Remember that walking down is 1st row, walking left is row 2, walking right is row 3, and walking up is row 4. (It might be a bit confusing... I tried to explain it the best I can...)
