I don't have any DH questions, but I thought I would post this question here since the only peeps who might know the answer are those who work with the rom.  Does anyone know what's up with this?:

havent really messed with the minimap editor much, but do you have to edit the rooms in order in order for the in-game map to work right?
I started in room 0, and the next room might be, say, 4. When i go to that room, on the map, i just skip to that room. I'm not really sure if im explaining clearly :(. when i thought about it, it seems like thered be no way for the map to work if the map will skip around like that.

btw opium, thats wierd :o

another question. Is there a way to make a room transparent without having a foreground already in the room? say, an elevator room? is there a way to add a foreground to a room?

Problems with the background importer. I downloaded a ripped background from a site, and when i try and import it, DH tells me "Pic002 can not be found or read." And then... "(image).bin could not be found aborting importation." so...i cant import the image. (i've downloaded that image several times.)
So...I wanted that image so badly, I got the ROM and ripped the image of the room myself, and edited it so that it would be compatible with DH.....and it tells me the SAME thing. This is the only image it has ever happened with, and i've got 217 tested and working backgrounds i can use.

Is it the right format, colour depth, and size?  I recall the help file said that it needs to be quite specific.  You may need to do some adjusting.
New version released a few days ago, no more need for grit.exe or freeimage.dll.
Download the exe at and place it in the folder!

yea, i had a problem myself. It SEEMS like (this might just be me being a n0b), but whenever I edit the scrolls and save a room, I can't edit the scrolls anymore. In room 0 in ZM, I edit all the scrolls. There are scrolls 0-4 in this room, and after I have where I want them, I save. I test the room....meh, needs slight adjustments. When i go to further alter the scroll(after exiting out of DH), I get scroll 0-100..... and there's no scroll i find capable of editting.

I certainly hope this isn't considered bumping (despite the fact it's been almost a year since the last post) :

I have a huge problem with DH. It seems that with the latest version and all the required files and such, there is only one thing I can't do, see or edit sprites/enemies. Is this due to the fact I have Windows 7 or was something wrong with the rom and/or DH itself? Also, none of the General or Room tools come up when I click them. And it won't save...

I like Big Butts and I can not lie
First of all, ensure you have the latest Double Helix (not the one on ROMHacking).  In Double Helix's main directory, there's a text file called SpriteList.txt and MFSpriteList.txt, interdpth was responsible for the former and I was responsible for the latter.  If you don't have these, or they're blank, the most recent files can be downloaded here.  It definitely won't be a Windows 7 issue (I run Windows 7)
Sadly, all the same problems keep popping up. The mini-map editor works now, but everthing else is still bad. Well, except for the other working things I mentioned (Clipdata and the main map itself.) While I'm at it I may as well ask if it's possible to edit Samus' suits, and if so how?
I like Big Butts and I can not lie
Would you take a screen shot of Double Helix before I say any more?  And can I confirm your SpriteList and MFSpriteList files are definitely not blank (and exist in the main directory)
The first file is the showing that DH isn't working for sprite editing, the second is showing the sprite changer. The sprite lists are not empty, I checked twice. But, just in case, the last picture is showing the files. It is the right one, correct?

I like Big Butts and I can not lie
The first two screenshots do make it look like it's a problem with the SpriteList files.  Is it just called SpriteList, it should be SpriteList.txt, but perhaps you've hidden extensions?  The contents are all fine (as I was sure they would be)

If it comes to it, frankly delete your DoubleHelix folder (or any Double Helix files you have, if they're not in their own folder), and download the linked one a few posts up, and the replace the DoubleHelix.exe from the zip folder with the DoubleHelix.exe on its own (also a few posts up).  Double Helix doesn't have any settings anyway
I have hidden extensions, and I tried your last resort idea, I thank you for your constant help, but it had all the same problems... Is there something wrong with my laptop or my download or something?
I like Big Butts and I can not lie
Hm, unless you have a bad ROM, I've no more ideas.  Double Helix doesn't have any special dependencies that I know of
My rom shouldn't be bad. It's supposed to be (U) (Trashman) Right? Those are the only american ones I can find...
I like Big Butts and I can not lie
Yeah, that's fine :-/
Oh my... Thank you for all your constant help and such but... I just downloaded it from Interdepths Blog. All previous problems are gone, maybe. I haven't fully tested it yet. Thank you.
