A few people asked me how i made a working imported scrolling peach castle Background.
So i will show you how i did that in the following 3 steps.

Step 1
The first thing what you do is to export an background that has no animation to your computer. for an example (TOP 0:Grasland (hills and clouds).

Step 2
Import the background that you exported at step one from your computer into the TOP 8:Grasland(Peach Castle) background with the "Import button".

Step 3
Import an Background like this one into NSMB with the "Import PNG button".


Keep in mind when importing a background into the peach castle slot that you know about that between the red border lines the background repeats there all the time.


To calculate where the border line exactly is you can use the following formula, BG= 512 - 256 = the scrolling area width.
512 indicates the full width of the image.
256 is the width of the left part of the image that isn't repeating.
And that results into a width of 256 pixels at the right side of the scrolling side of the image.

I hope that this tutorial helped you people a lot.
If you got any questions about this subject feel free and ask me.

No. It's 256 pixels, which is exactly half of the background width.

But yea, nice tutorial

Oh yeah, I knew about the BG scrolling, it was obvious.


Cool tutorial. Pretty useful for new hackers having troubles with this background.
