A (revised) tutorial about properly sizing facesets for use in RM2K(3).

Body

MAKING FACES FIT ONTO THE RM2K TEMPLATE...
WITHOUT RESIZING..

Note:Sorry if someone has posted these methods before.. I think they are kinda obvious,
so who knows..also, this is a REVISION, since many people didn't understand the last one..
This tutorial is going to help you fit your faces into the rm2k template without resizing.
This is for those faces like Final Fantasy Tactics:Advance.
Note2: IF!! you are using very very large faces, like the ones you see in Final Fantasy
Tactics Advance, make sure you sketch skew them 50% before doing any of the steps!

1-The empty box method

Step 1: Open two paints. One contains the faces. The other contains the face template.
Step 2: Do you notice the pattern all templates have? Do you notice they are
boxes? Copy one of them.
Step 3: Paste them onto the first paint, the one with the faces. Draw a black box around
the box you just pasted.

Step 4: Fill the inside with white.

Step 5: Drag the empty box over to your face.


Step 6: Erase the black lining.

Step 7: Now you should see a white lining around part of the face. Copy everything inside it.

Step 8: Copy it over into the face template, it should fit perfectly.

Overall: Very easy.

2-The always centered-same spot method

Step 1: Open three paints. One contains the faces, the other two contain the face
templates.

Step 2: Copy the face you want to use on the face template's third row, first square,
even if it overlaps others.

Step 3: Choose the rectangle option, and make it the whole color option. (The whole
color option is the one that produces rectangles that are filled in)

Step 4: Go to the squares that are overlapped. Drag the box over the parts that overlap.

Before you drag:
___________
|___|____|____|
|ooo|____|____|
ooo

O is the face. As you can see, it takes up two face slots.

But when you drag a whole colored box over it:

___________
|___|____|____|
|___|____|____|
ooo

A face in it's spot, where it is supposed to be. It's a miracle..

Step 5:Copy the face and paste it onto the third paint, the one
with the template. And you're done!

Overall:Time consuming, but the only reason you may want to do this
is to get the faces centered on the same spot.

3-The box method

Like method two only faster :)

Step 1: Open three paints. One contains the faces, the other two contain the face
templates.
Step 2: Take the face you want to use and paste it onto the second paint,
on the third row, once again.
Step 3: Copy one of the face boxes that we used in method 1. Now.
Paste them over the parts that overlap other boxes. So let's say
the Black Mage's Hat goes up to the second row. Paste a square
where that used to be. Make sure it covers up anything that overlaps.


Step 4: After doing that to every part that is overlapped, you shall received
a contained face. Copy it over into the third paint's template, and you are
done!!!!

Overall:You should use this instead of two, but if your paint has a tendancy
to past things in the wrong place, mabye you shouldn't use this method..

Sorry if this is once again vauge... I try to to use pictures, but then again....
