    Question. I'm trying to mode Mario's sprites, for Mario World and when I try to mod his super sprite, the sprite gets all jumbled and glitchy. But it works just fine when I try to mod his small sprite.

    It gets glitchy with Yoshi, too.

    Is there anything thing I could be doing wrong? I handled the injection the same way for all sprites, but only those two get glitchy so far.
