Use Un-LZ to modify the tileset (Pos: 08e9c798 Nr.: 1635) and write the new position to 0813b848 The tilemap is stored at 08e9ca44. Open this tilemap in a hex-editor. You'll see something like "01 00 01 00 ... 02 00 03 00 04 00 01 00 01 00". "01 00" is an empty tile. "02 00" is a (c)-tile. The distance of two "02 00" is the lenght of one line. Go to the last "02 00" and add this distance to your current position. Now type "02 00 03 00 04 00 05 00 01 00 01 00 01 00". Continue counting from 2b for each tile. "2b 00" for one tile. "2b 00 2c 00" for two tiles. etc.

Spoiler:

Code:
0813b81c  480a ldr r0, [$0813b848] (=$08e9c798)
0813b81e  26c0 mov r6, #0xc0
0813b820  04f6 lsl r6, r6, #0x13
0813b822  199b add r3, r3, r6
0813b824  1c19 add r1, r3, #0x0
0813b826  f0a4 bl $081e07f0				LZ77UnCompVram(08e9c798,06000000)
0813b82a  4808 ldr r0, [$0813b84c] (=$08e9ca24)
0813b82c  1c29 add r1, r5, #0x0
0813b82e  2220 mov r2, #0x20
0813b830  f738 bl $08073a58
0813b834  4806 ldr r0, [$0813b850] (=$08e9ca44)
0813b836  19a4 add r4, r4, r6
0813b838  22a0 mov r2, #0xa0
0813b83a  0092 lsl r2, r2, #0x02
0813b83c  1c21 add r1, r4, #0x0
0813b83e  f0a4 bl $081e07ec				CpuSet(08e9ca44,06000000+3800,280)

Awesome Knizz, this information is wicked helpful, though a bit confusing at first.

So in theory I would be able to create a new RAW and convert it to HEX, so as to insert an entirely different image for the Copyright Screen? (other TuTs haven't been so helpful in this field for RUBY)

I mean, I know I would also have to change the tileset @1635 as well. but would it be feasible? (and I mean for someone who's lackluster in the knowledge of HEX).

I can understand none of you.

The tileset is compressed, tilemap isn't. They are both in the ROM. And the code in the first post shows how they are moved into the graphics-memory.

Makes me feel like a genius xD

I'm crap at HEX though, and I lost my Workshop when my old notebook was stolen D:

I can't remember, but isn't there a program to insert just about anything, to any point in the ROM, that will repoint if you input a slot with enough free space? Would be dead helpful here if I could remember what it was.

Any idea?

I understood that the TS is compressed, didn't know about the TM though.

The way you describe it makes it seem a little more complicated than I think it needs to be....but I'm probably wrong, as stated prior, I'm crap when it comes to HEX
