I found out that many of our community members have problem with editing "ruby version" from title screen. I decided to create a simply tutorial that works perfectly for me. I've added also a lot of screens that make the things much easier. My english isn't very well and that's my first tutorial so please forgive me for mistakes
I'll be using names for files to make the things easier. So please name your files like I do to avoid confusion.
2. Photoshop or
4. MS Paint
Before you start please backup your ROM!
1. Open your ROM in unLZ.GBA.
2. Select the number 1638 (it can be another number for ex. 1637 or 1639. This can occur because of previous ROM hacking) and 256 Color Mode (screen below):
You should see something like that.
3. Photoshop users:
Click on "Save as..." and save the file as
Tile Molester Alternate users:
Click on "RawDump" and save the file as
4. Open ROM in VBA.
5. Skip the intro and stop at the title screen.
6. From the list choose "Tools→Palette Viewer..." (screen below):

4. Choose from the list "View→Codec→8bpp linear".
5. Now click "Deacrase Width" button 8 times to make logo look like this:
6. DON'T CLOSE TILE MOLESTER!
9. Now open MS Paint and create the new file (exactly 107x32 pixels if you want to have the biggest logo
in the center
. If you want
the biggest size of your logo, then make 128x32.)
10. Make your own logo (use
black background for the index color). The best would be using colors similar to this included in the palette file (if not, you will need to change the palette in APE and find tutorial how to do it
11. Resize the field (you need more space). Now select and copy the first part of your image (64x32 pixels). Paste it on free space. Then select and copy the rest. Paste it below previous part (screen below):
Then crop your changed image (it should have 64x64 pixels - like the
Save it as
12. Photoshop users:
1. Now select all (CTRL+A). Then choose "copy" (CTRL+C). Now open in MS Paint
. Choose "paste" (CTRL+V). The colors can mess up if you hadn't used similar to this in background palette. Save the file (don't overwrite) as
2. Now come back to unLZ.GBA and choose "import". Select
Tile Molester Alternate users:
(If you anyway closed Tile Molester Alternate, then make step 8.)

. The colors can mess up if you hadn't used similar to this in background palette.
3. Save the file as
4. Now come back to unLZ.GBA and choose "File→Load RAW...".
5. Choose all files (screen below):
13. Click "Write to Rom". Be sure too check three option like on the screen:
