I can still drop the sprite data into appvars, the enemy sprites and the maps are already.

It will be less than 100 bytes I think. Unless he uses the routine only for Reuben then it won't add any size because it will replace the other one.

Pretty sure he also uses the 8x8 routine for the map. But 100 bytes are easily scraped off.
I'm not a nerd but I pretend:

I read somewhere in the topic that you used to have an 8*9 Reuben sprite for the map. I can hack Axe's sprite routine in two seconds if you want so that you can use it because it looked better IMO. ;)

I actually had forgotten that we ended up shrinking Reuben. :P The 8x9 one is slightly nicer, but I'm quite happy with how the 8x8 one came out. If it can be changed easily cool, but if not, the current one works quite well I think. :)

I can confirm that any sprite routine can be hooked into to support variable height for probably about 40-50 bytes (per routine, although there might be a clever way to combine them).

Just make sure that you can still draw other 8x8 sprites fine even if the routine can draw 8x9 sprites. You definitively don't want to have to make your entire sprite data 8x9 just to have one set of 8x9 chars. In the color tilesheets I remade the sprite 8x8 for that reason (and it was even worse, as each 8x9 Reuben char took two 8x8 sprite slots >.<). However, since I used colors, it didn't nearly look all that weird in 8x8 compared to 4 levels grayscale (although this pretty much revived the original sprite >.<).

Indeed. Remembering where each monster tile are will be a nightmare especially if I want to move the monster around. At least xLIBC lets you draw multiple tiles in one command, tho.

Can't you just make the collision detection such that it will not override stuff ?

Also DJ don't worry, this will not override Axe's sprite routines, only add up to them so there's no issue.

And yeah Runer, I literally meant it when I said two seconds. :P IIRC there's just a constant to change and it'll work.

if you have it 9 pixels high you will automatically over-draw stuff because there are at places gaps that are only 8px high where you have to head through.

Oh yeah right. x.x
You could use pt-get but then it would add more sprites to draw. Unless I manage to make something epic in asm. >:D or you could save the bytes, that's fast.
