Sprite Norn body data fix?

I was attempting to organize a bunch of my old mods and discovered that, a long time ago, I apparently downloaded the Sprite Norns by Trix. Unfortunately, the males using these sprites have some unusual body data issues where their body constantly faces forward even when they're walking. There's a fix available on Trix's website, but I downloaded it and installed it and it didn't seem to work. I hatched some new Sprite Norns post-fix and they still seem to have broken BD.

Does anyone have a fix for these guys that rectifies this issue? And if not, does anyone known of a "typical" Norn breed that comes with separate body data so I can bash some together? Most of the Norn breeds I've downloaded since getting back into the game have had unusual BD, so the ones with separate body data aren't really suitable.

If that fix was an agent, have you tried activating it first?

That sounds more like a sprite image issue than a body data one? Body data tells sprite images where to attach, not which pose to be in.

The males and females seem to use exactly the same sprites for this breed. Would it be theoretically possible to duplicate some female sprites to suffice, then?

Update: I FIXED THEM!

It was indeed a sprite issue, as @Dragoler said. (Thank you!) It ended up being a fairly simple fix. Only males in the Adult stage are affected; Old and Ancient males don't have the problem. So I made a copy of the Body sprites for Old males, renamed it so it was the Adult male sprite, and everything worked peachy keen.

Specifically, I copied the file "b25q.c16" and renamed it "b24q.c16," overwriting the original sprite. Worked a charm!

Do the adult males have gray bodies now? [nlaugh]

The Sprite Norns actually use colored genomes; I think all the sprites are gray by default (maybe? or maybe they're blue?) and there are different genomes that each hatch in a specific color. Very pretty looking, and makes them great for interbreeding since you get a lot of color variation. Sadly, they're an old, old breed, so they don't have any genome updates, which is a shame as the genomes are actually very unique. As far as I could tell, there was no variation in the sprites between the Adult and Old sprites, so it works with no problems.
