I'm having a bit of trouble with hacking the sprites of Contra for the NES. It seems that when I look at the sprites in Tile Layer Pro the sprites for the main character is extremely hard to find. Is there any way to do an autosort so the sprites line up so I can see things more clearly. Or if there are some better tool? The closest thing I get to see the character sprites is in the editor in Nesticle.

Tile Layer Pro is a great tool. I've ripped the character sprites from Super C, but haven't really messed with the first Contra.

Make a duplicate rom of Contra in Tile Layer Pro and attempt to find a head/leg or whatever. Then cover those sprites in that area with numbers and letters and then play the duplicate rom and take screenshots.

That's the easiest way to hack NES game graphics to be honest.
