    Just how hard is it for a beginner (such as myself) to edit the .nds files of homebrew titles to add icons to them?

    I ask because I wish to add the Quake symbols to the .nds files of the 2 QuakeDS homebrews, any help?

    It appears that 16 colour bitmaps is the max I can use. Looks good enough on my DS though. Now to do Quake 2

    Use photoshop or gimp. You can also trick AK edit into doing so.
