    What happened during the process to prevent that 2 toned music to play when you launch the channel?

    The sound.bin was never touched [​IMG]

    Is there a way to disable the 'Operations Guide' button so that it doesn't appear when the 'Home' button is pressed?

    I'll try following the guide tonight as it looks a lot more easy to follow. [​IMG]

    i believe you need to extract the opening.bnr file from the dvd then you need to extract that file with u8extr_v0.2a_eng then you will get a banner.bin and an icon.bin and an sound.bin gbalzss banner and icon.bin en extract those files again you will now have the same files as the virtual console games. (dont know if 100% correctly, but i cant test it right now)

    gah I did forget to translate some message boxes, I had never used the tools before I translated so I only knew to change what I saw in the main window.

    Thanks for the new, thorough tutorial. I just followed it exactly for an NES inject (Pro Wrestling into Punch Out!!). Hopefully it works. I'm currently without a Wii at this point due to bricking it with a failed attempt at a custom VC game banner.

    If anyone has a means of protecting their system against bricks and would like to test my new WAD for me, please PM me. Brave people only! Haha.

    EDIT: Or, if anyone uses DVD-RW discs to test the banner out first, PM me and I'll send you the opening.bnr that I made from the 00.app. That way is perfectly safe.

    EDIT2: I've gone ahead and made the ISO for testing. It's JParadox's custom banner testing ISO containing my opening.bnr. It can be downloaded here: http://www.mediafire.com/?yrvutnn9djm So if anyone with a modchip, 3.2 or lower and a rewritable DVD wants to test my banner for me, just burn that 6 megabyte ISO with ImgBurn and let me know if the disc channel displays the proper banner! Let me know if it worked! Thanks!
