Strange Palettes Ensue...

Hey there, all. I just had a question related to sprite mods.

So any time I go to try out some sprite mods myself, in-game my colors are glitched for the respective new sprites.

As for a general example, let's use a sprite of Sonic from the fan game, Sonic: Time Twisted.

Also, no, I don't plan on making a Time Twisted Sonic mod.

Here the colors are glitched for a reason I don't know.

For reference, the sprite should look like this, and looks exactly the same in the sprite sheet (minus the green back.)

I used the latest version of to export as a .bmp with 8-bit indexed colors and no encoding.

Help would be greatly appreciated.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that I am indeed using the latest version of Sonic 3 A.I.R, and am also within the range of the game's palette.

    access_time 13d edit 13d is your problem. It does not play nice with palettes. 

    Download and open GraphicsGale. Drag a fresh copy of the Sonic bmp into the GG window. 
    After that, paste your custom sprites into the sheet and save.
