    As you can see on the third image, the first banner appears during the rotation, why?

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    If someone want the banner, or is interested in check why, here it is the template of the GBC banner (Zelda Link Awakening).

    Ok, I think I found why.
    If you open the cgfx in EFE an check COMMON1.png, you see a lot of level (0 1 2 3 4...).
    Ohana3DS can just extract/import the first level (0), so I guess we have to wait for an update to EFE for the import :')

    Yes, you are right. The mipmaps (distant textures) are causing this. EFE has still no support for texture hacking because I can't fully parse all sections of the bcmdl and therefore not write it back completely (like keeping the animations and stuff).

    So from what I understand CGFX is a container format for textures, models, shaders and other data.

    When you say "open the cgfx in EFE" I've lost you because from what I see neither EFE or Ohana3DS recognise .cgfx files. Do I need to rename them to something else?

    I'm having a similar problem with some .BMTA.bin files from Style Savvy which when dragged into a hex editor seem to be CGFX format, but so far I've yet to actually do anything useful with them.

    If a file format isn't indexed on 3dbrew.org then I basically have to reverse engineer the format from scratch with a hex editor right?

    I uploaded a new version of EFE that supports replacing textures. It still can't save animations though, so they will be lost.

    @Asia81 - i managed to fix the 3d banner :-)
    @gdkchan - thanks for the modified ohana 3ds :-)

    anyway, just want to ask about the official GBA banner? does it contain 3 banner like GBC/GB banner? or just a picture?
    thanks... :-)

    I don't know if this is a good thread for my question but I searched this forum and google for few hours and I can't find the answer.
    Is this possible to make a GB virtual consol game with original Game Boy mode instead Game Boy Color? I make CIA with all original Game Boy banner and icons but I can't figure out how to change that in game "bezel". Thanks in advance for any help :)

    Oh and sorry for double post :(

    EDIT: I finally managed how to do this so now I have custom GB VC rom with original GB mode :)

    Make sure you have banner.bin in the same folder
