Eh, it's me again!

Trying to get that authentic NES feel out of my game, so I am trying to make some simplistic 8 by 8 tiles, but plan on enlarging them three times over like the rest of my Graphics in the game. If I'm doing my math right, I believe I should get 32 by 32 tiles, but the default is 40 by 40, and I tried my tiles but they don't seem to work very well in my game. Is there a way to use smaller tiles?

RMMV
1) the default is 48x48, not 40x40.
2) 300% enlarging would get you 24x24, not 32 - and you would simply have to enlarge 600% to get 48x48...
3) you could use Shaz plugin for changing the grid size, but that would require you to still use an 48x48 mockup for the editor - better use the correct enlarging as described above.

Maybe I should just make 16 by 16 tiles.
