If nothing happens
  1. Make sure you ran TaleWorlds.TwoDimension.SpriteSheetGenerator.exe

    SpriteSheetGenerator.exe will create two folders named Assets and AssetSources under Modules\YOUR_MODULE_NAME.
    It will also create a SpriteData.xml file (with a prefix of your module name) under Modules\YOUR_MODULE_NAME\GUI.

    Check these folders/files to make sure they were generated properly.

  2. If you are adding new sprites for the existing category or updating the old ones - make sure you did proper reimport as described below.

Make sure your files are selected then press the Import button. Then, you should see something similar to this:

Make sure there is

Config.xml should be in the SpriteParts folder.

Sprite resized in a weird way

Possible reason: you added a new sprite, executed TaleWorlds.TwoDimension.SpriteSheetGenerator.exe but failed to Reimport with the Resource Browser.

Missing texture

Make sure you imported your sprite into the Resource Browser and tpac file was generated in the Assets or AssetPackages (after Mod publishing) folder.
