I have decided to make this thread, because I have seen that a lot of people don't know whether to do to change the background of the inferior screen.

This tutorial, doesn't serve only besides to point out the position of the files to modify.

1. You choose your background. Not too much great (max 64 pixels) and that it have few colors (max 16 colours). 64 Pixel are enough, because the background uses the same principle of the Map16 of the tilesets.

For example this:

2. We now go to the ROM file browser tab. Then we go to Root, and finally on uiStudio.
It will appear us one screened as this:



3. We open the palette.



Then click on Add All.



4. We open the image.





Click on View in 4bpp format.



5. Import your image over the background in the proper palette. You can also replace the empty spaces. (Sorry, but I will jump the tutorial of the importation.)

6. Click on Save or Save All. Close it. (not editor!)

7. Now, under the file of the palette, there are other 6 files. In these files they are shown as they are in-game, and it is possible to modify them.



-game_in_d: it shows some things, like:



-The next 3 show the white background, of the blue bricks and of the coins stars (not in order).
-The last two show the retro background.

8. Open one of these files. (decompress it before!) Edit it and then save it. You close and you compress it.

With this method, you can also modify other things, for example:
- The background of the inferior screen in the map of the world
- this:


-the bar of advancement (as I have done in my hack)
- and also other things.

Before opening a file nsc, you must open the respective image and palette.

In step 7, you forgot to mention you must decompress the *.nsc file before opening!

Yep. The "Grammatical gender" rules aren't that difficult for English.

You only use him or her when you're talking about males or females.

Fixed. It was only a distraction ...

In Italian traslated "it" has the same function as English

So I just did this trick with "d_2d_W_M_tikei_yougan_ncg.bin" (in the BG_ncg folder) and "d_2d_W_M_tikei_yougan_ncl.bin" (in the BG_ncl folder).

When I decompressed and opened the corresponding *.nsc file, I actually expected to see the Map16. However, there was nothing.


EDIT: Nvm, there is no corresponding *.nsc file.

Well. I don't know if this trick works with the background (but there is the BG viewer already in the editor). And the "tikei" ncg and ncl files haven t a *nsc file (tikei are tileset image and palette).

EDIT: it is possible to modify map16 of the BG of the Main Menu. So it is useless to open a *nsc file of a BG, there is already the editor which can dk that.

If I try to open a background by using this trick, I don't see anything.

Have you tried to compress instead of decompress? Maybe the background use in another method the *nsc file. But why you open the BG with this? You can open it with the map16 in Background section.

I know I can also open them with the BG Viewer, but I'm just wondering if that Map16 works the same. I'm trying to find out how the game works.

EDIT: Compressing also didn't work.

Without compressing and decompressing? (I think that thi however doesn t work)

You have to ask who have implemented the background editor... I think ...
