Ripping Tools

The Super Nova system has an awkward graphic technique that makes it almost impossible to rip through. The sprites uses a flag and pixel data. You'll need to download Python, NumPy, and Pillow to decompress the sprites. There are two method to rip the sprites from these games. Note that Gals Panic 3 and the two Jackie Chan games uses the same sprites as the Super Nova System.

Option One: Decompress to TiledGGD

If you want the sprites to show up correctly, you'll need to use Python and download TiledGGD. Copy the script from the forums and paste it into a new script. Then you'll need to add your file of the exact same name. Hit the run module, and it should decompress the graphics. Open the graphics up in TIledGGD, and there you go!
