Default X-Char Help

Hi guys, I need help again. How do I run X-Char? When I try to open it, it said that to run it, I had to enter "xchar romname.ext" What does it mean? I need help fast.<img src=smilies/2gunsfiring_v1.gif>

X-Char is a horribly old program; then again, you apparently have no idea how a command prompt works, so your abilities with a computer are apparently next to nil. Use a program like Tile Layer Pro, or YY-Char. Not only are they better, but no command prompt usage required!

But I need X-Char to create a Poison Mushroom for my game and Master Hand and Crazy Hand and Dark Mind with it. Unless you think of another program that can create sprites with their own effects, until then I'm stuck with X-Char, so anybody else?<img src=smilies/cwm27.gif>

"Xchar by the creators of Xlate is a tile editor for rom images. Basically what that means is that with this, you can make your own sprites in effect completely changing an already created game. This has been know as 'Hacking' roms and if used correctly can come out very nice, and extremely fun."

Now, unless this is intended to be horribly sarcastic, I take it that it was written the dawn before time, when hackers ruled the earth and the ability to actually change graphics within a rom was considered to be an "effect". From what I can figure out, this program can:

1. Edit graphics. In roms.
2. Nothing else.

Drawing sprites can be done in many programs, though TileLayer Pro probably is the best choice. I don't know what they mean by "effects", but since we're talking Nes, it isn't cellshading they're talking about..

Then agin, being an XP-user, I haven't even bothered to download this. <img src=smilies/erm.gif> Also, you don't "create" sprites/other graphics. You draw them by hand/mouse, or use programs like photoshop and import BMP's into the rom (whereas TLP can be used for this).
