@  kirant : (25 June 2017 - 06:05 AM) There are fewer bots which make it in. It seems like the software blocking them out is getting better.
@  Idiot : (25 June 2017 - 05:36 AM) I mean probably the former, but hey you never know.
@  Idiot : (25 June 2017 - 05:36 AM) Either kirants doing a really good job at killing them, or their AI is becoming self-aware and improving it's capabilities.
@  Idiot : (25 June 2017 - 05:34 AM) I can't even spot the bots anymore.
@  Fire Blazer : (24 June 2017 - 05:16 AM) thanks Kirant lol
@  Whitewolf8 : (24 June 2017 - 01:47 AM) ...I should revise my statement.
A corpse of a bot is on the porch. ...pokepokepoke.
@  kirant : (24 June 2017 - 12:22 AM) It's not on the loose if I kill it, right?
@  Whitewolf8 : (23 June 2017 - 11:59 PM) Aaaand another bot seems to be on the loose.
@  Fire Blazer : (23 June 2017 - 06:46 PM) :)
@  Idiot : (23 June 2017 - 03:00 PM) Haha, good enough for me Blazer.
@  Whitewolf8 : (23 June 2017 - 12:05 PM) I am also still here. sort of. kind of. maybe. Also doubt I will 'actually' leave.
@  Fire Blazer : (23 June 2017 - 04:46 AM) and ofc, y'all are always free (if not welcome/encouraged) to chat me up somewhere else, though I don't intend to forcibly shut down these forums or anything for as long as I reasonably can
@  Fire Blazer : (23 June 2017 - 04:45 AM) You guys all bring up good points... not much I can say... or perhaps I'm just exhausted from everything going on in my life right now and don't feel like saying much... but know that I appreciate and look fondly on the time I have spent with you all... I'd probably even miss "Idiot", heh :P
@  Elwood : (22 June 2017 - 10:39 PM) I love this place. Doubt I'll leave as long as it exists. It's still my homepage so rest assured I'm always here a few times a day.
@  kirant : (22 June 2017 - 06:56 PM) True. You often begin stabilizing your interests and mentality in your late 20s.
@  Rujio : (22 June 2017 - 05:36 PM) Especially with forums like this that target a younger audience. Yeah a 45 year-old might stick around the same places when he's 55, but a 13 year old and a 23 year old are likely to have pretty different interests.
@  Rujio : (22 June 2017 - 05:35 PM) I mean, the problem is that this is/was a particular community, and communities like that change/go away over time. It's the same at any other forum, it's just that some places have the old communities replaced by new ones.
@  Idiot : (22 June 2017 - 10:29 AM) And that's from someone with only 6 years of experience under their belt here. Can't imagine how the real veterans feel about it lol.
@  Idiot : (22 June 2017 - 10:25 AM) Yeah but even so, the ones that have stuck around this long are all really great people. I wouldn't trade the memories and conversations I've had with everyone on here for any super popular forum. Though, I'm not the one who created it so obviously we come from pretty different perspectives.
@  Fire Blazer : (22 June 2017 - 08:37 AM) I think I was harboring this notion in the back of my head that, once I get a lot of free time again, I'll restore it to its glory days, but it's not nearly that simple, and I don't think I'll have said free time in the next 5, maybe even 10 years anyway, so it's probably a bit naive of me... lol

So I just barely joined and am already asking questions.

 

Anyways, I wanted to try messing with Portraits, and as an exercise, I spliced Ephraim's head on Franz's body, and gave this guy the hair color of some boss in FE8, and used Ephraim's hair color for the armor (Which I think looks pretty cool!). Now, after finally getting down to 16 colors and the 128x112 dimensions, I went and tried to insert it into FEditor. Alas, this all occurred (see attached pictures). 

 

I tried the classic click and drag in FEditor, which usually solves these kinds of problems, but it didn't work this time.

 

I used the portrait of Franz as a template, so I thought I had dimensions correct on the half-closed eyes and closed eyes sections, but I could be completely off. So my question is: Are there any glaring mistakes on my portrait thing? I tried shifting things around a bit, but it didn't seem to immediately fix the problem...

 

Any advice?

That's an alignment thing. You'll need to shift the portrait(specifically the mugshot portion) until it lines up. Your best bet here is trial and error, just keep trying until you've gotten it close, then start counting how many pixels off you are. You'll get there eventually ^_^

Your best bet is actually the use of a grid that comes with some image editing programs. It specifically shows you the borders you need to follow.

Thank you both so much! I followed your instructions, and it turns out that I was just trying to be lazy and just do whatever I could without any sort of grid. But in my defense, I wasn't able to find a template like the one Mercurius had until now. I'm definitely saving that to use later! 
 
So thank you both so much! :D  :D

That template is twice as big as it should be (because I had to show the grid properly), this is the properly sized one (although as mentioned in the guide you really should use a program that has layers if you are going to use it, like paint.net or Photoshop)
