Programs Used In This Tutorial:
- CyclonePrototype - unLZ-GBA - Hexecute RC7 - Paint
Let's Begin, Shall We?
To start off you will need to create a TileSet in Paint
Open Paint, and a good set of attributes are 128x128 pixels
Now Begin To Paint, This Is Where Creativity Comes Into Play, Of Course Feel Free To Use Graphics From Your ROM If You'd Like To
Now You Save Your TileSet as a 16-Color Bitmap.
Now you'll be creating a TileMap using CyclonePrototype
Open Cyclone and load the TileSet you've just created
Now Comes the time consuming portion of this process, you have to create the tilemap, one tile at a time, which is quite bothersome, but unfortunately a nessecity. You arrange your tiles into the pattern you would like for your Copyright Intro Screen.
Once you have completed the layout for how you would like your Copyright Screen, go to File>Save TileMap
+!+!+!+!+YOU MUST SAVE YOUR TILEMAP AS A .raw FILE+!+!+!+!+!+
Open unLZ-GBA and load your ROM
Once Compressed Data has been read, go to image number 1635, you may want to change the pallette using the "next pal" button, in order to double check for the correct image
Go To "Import" and change the file type to "All Files", now find your TileSet, the image you made at the beginning of this Tutorial
Once selected, go and click on "Write To ROM"
Select "Export Pallette" and "Automatically Fix Pointers", and change the "Image Offset" to 00716AAC (*THIS SPACE MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE DEPENDING ON THE AMOUNT OF WORK YOU HAVE DONE IN YOUR HACK*) and click OK
You are now done with unLZ-GBA
Open Hexecute RC7 and open the .RAW file you saved as the TileMap for your Copyright Screen
This is the simplest part, hold the CTRL button, and press the letter A, now hold the CTRL button and press the letter C. (That Was Easy)
Now in Hexecute open up your ROM
Scroll down the the offset of
and place your marker at the beginning of 0100 [Indicated In Screenshot]
Now hold CTRL and press the letter V
Go TO File>Save
And go Test Your ROM
If done correctly you should have your Copyright Screen That You Designed
