1. Decompress overlay 1 and open it in a hex editor,
2. Copy the following data, starting at the left address and ending at the right, saving each bit as separate file:

(US ROM, didn't check Europe)
Top Screen NCG 0xE64 - 0x1455
Top Screen NCL 0x1454 - 0x1654
Bottom Screen NCG 0x1844 - 0x256B
Bottom Screen NCL 0x256C - 0x258B

3. Import the NCGs and NCLs into any NCGs/NCLs in NSMBe. Upon opening them, you should get the boot screen graphics.



4. Edit the graphics, save, compress, export the files out of NSMBe.
5. Copy the data back into the aforementioned adresses. If the data is shorter, copy just the size the new file is and leave the rest of the data alone.

6. You're done!



PS. The remaining data of Overlay 1 are likely the NSCs.

People here thought this was hard-coded, and now Skawo made a simple tutorial to modify this :')

Being in an overlay does technically mean it's hardcoded.

Is it overlay 9_1, or the overlay with ID 1?

Sorry for the bump.
What should I do if the data ends up being longer?

Erg.
Well, you'll have to write code and relocate the image then. The graphics are loaded in overlay 1 at 02186FB8

That said, it SHOUDLN'T end up longer, since it's a bitmap :l. Make sure you imported the same dimensions and everything, then compressed?

Yes, it shouldn't be longer, but it just does. When I compress it, the data gets even longer. It also becomes longer if I do nothing but save (without modifying anything) while editing the original ones. I've tried to do this with two different NCGs already (I_fireball_ncg.bin and d_2d_A_J_jyotyu_ncg.bin) with both the b379 and the b354 builds. Just in case, this only happens with the bitmaps.
I'm so sorry for causing you so much trouble these days,  skawo.
