    So I have this problem that the sprite box cuts off the charater. I looked it up online and others said to use $ in the begining of the name, and so i did, but it still doesn't fit corectly.

    Actually, it's working fine, but you're using a wrong sprite format. That's a sprite for RPG Maker XP. You have to convert it into RMVXAce form in order to be able to use it well in the editor.

    Characters (Graphics/Characters)

    Files containing images of characters to display on the map screen.

    A character can be of any size, and a total of twelve patterns (four directions (down, left, right, up) × 3 patterns) are arranged in the designated order. In each file, arrange characters two down and four across, for a total of eight. The size of this character is calculated based on one-twelfth the width and one-eighth the height of this file.

    Note that RPG Maker VX Ace displays characters offset four pixels from tiles so as to more naturally portray them with buildings.

    • Adding an exclamation point (!) to the beginning of a file name cancels the application of the four-pixel offset, and also turns off the translucent effect applied by the bush attribute. This is used mainly for object-type characters on maps, such as doors and treasure chests. It can also be used in combination with the dollar sign ($) special character.
    • Adding a dollar sign ($) to the beginning of a file name allows you to treat one character as one file. In this case, the size of the character will be one-third of the width and one-fourth of the height of the file. It can also be used in combination with the exclamation point (!) special character.  

    The dollar sign removes the requirement of having 8 characters in one sheet, but you still need to make sure that each character is 1/3 of the width and 1/4 of the height of the full file.

    To me it looks a bit like you're attempting to open a .rar file with notepad.

    That wont work mate, you'll need a program that can unpack it first.

    Ahh it works fine with me too. Just unzip it using WinRaR, and then open the .exe file.
