I was wondering if anyone could help me by explaining this, i feel pretty dense.  I have been on the sprite web pages looking for ideas for cross stitch, but how do you take a sprite off one of those sites and convert it into something you can make a pattern from?  any advice would be great. thanks!!!

There are specific programs that turn images in cross-stitch patterns - for sprites, however, you can easily do it with MS-Paint.

1- take a screenshot of your emulator or take a sprite from a sprite library like http://tsgk.captainn.net/;

2- open it in Paint;

3- Zoom it to the max (8x) and enable the grid in "View > Zoom > Show grid"

4- Take a printscreen of it and paste, replacing the previous image. Then, disable the grid;

5- Crop the image, leaving only the important, and save.

6- I recommend that you print it with Windows' built-in print manager (if you're using XP), because it will ofer you some preset sizes, and it'll zoom the image as you want. If you send it to print through Paint, the image will probably come out tiny.

I hope that helps you!  Grin
