I was just wondering if the 3 pointers are respective to that order, ie. is the first pointer the pointer to the tileset etc.?
    Also is there a specific limit to how many extra backgrounds you have? and finally, do they have to be 16 colours? I'm assuming they do, but with any luck they might not.

    Thanks so much for your help!
    Dude, I made a tut for this already, and you still saw it here haha... xD

    Yes, they are respectively in that order.

    All images to be inserted in the ROM should be 16 colors just for you to know. I think you can have at least 255 backgrounds though I only have managed to have 0x25 backgrounds in my game.
