Lost sprites/background tiles with the correct color indexes?

    I was about to try applying different palettes to some of the known Sonic 2 "lost" sprites, but after downloading some of the available GIFs I'm coming to the conclusion that the original palette order is never kept in them... =\

    Does anybody have these graphics with the correct color order, or know how to extract them as indexed PNGs/GIFs, like those in the Digitizer topic?

    Some of those graphics date back to the SWS2B days, so are just using palettes that "look good" (or in some cases, whatever was handy at the time). Some of them are double the size they should be too - it all needs to be redone by someone who cares enough to do it properly.

    Yeah... And a good start would be to know if there's tools available which allow for that.

    I know there used to be some small command line apps which would extract every single graphic in a specific format from inside a ROM, but I don't think those allowed for GIF/PNG batch conversions... right?
