    Hello everyone [​IMG]
    I think almost everyone here on GBAtemp knows me already...

    I'm the guy who makes the "New Super Mario Bros. 3 Hack"!
    http://gbatemp.net/t226778-new-super-mario-bros-3-hack

    I'm finished with my work "so far" and need the very last step to complete the hack!!
    An intro! It must not be animated or something else, I only want to put a text inside!

    The intro should appear before the Nintendo logo!
    For the upper and lower screen of the DS!

    I'm sure, thousands of members here are waiting for my final patch, so it would be cool to help me out fast [​IMG]
    I'm not a coder nor haved coed anything in my life (just some C++ but thats useless here)

    So, if you can help me, then write it so that every noob understand it [​IMG]


    *Sorry for the bad english, but it should be enough to understand my request, shouldn't it!?



    Thanks in advance!!
    SKJmin

    You can put in static image intros with crystaltile2. If I were at my comp right now I'd give you a better idea how but I'm not... If you want to just give me a top and bottom image I could do it in a matter of minutes.

    OK here's the process: Open your ROM with CrystalTile2, got to Tools > NDS Filesystem. Then in the new window that pops up Edit > NDS AutoLoad Modulus Editor. Now click the button labeled "Intro..." and another window will pop up, just click OK and you'll be taken to where all the magic happens. This window will let you choose images for each screen and specify a wait time. After you've browsed to the images click add and then insert.

    Damn I'm getting an error....
    When I do the steps you have counted it shows me an error... "Get interface failed"

    Screenshot:
    [​IMG]


    The problem is I have builded the version on my own, downloaded the files on GBAtemp somewehere and after opening it, it reported me a lof of missing DLL's...

    I had to search and build them in manually from different sites...
    Do you know the solution of the error above?
    There are some red Zeros "0" in the boxes, maybe changing them to soemthing, but to what [​IMG]


    (Could you send me your working Crystal Tile Folder?[​IMG])


    Edit:
    Thanks so much for your hrelp my dear friend!

    Hello SKJmin,

    im not sure if it is helpfull but you wrote that you don't have any experience
    in programing.
    So here is something i found maybe that helps a little bit (maybe in HEX-Editing).

    P.S. sorry to the Admins that i wrote in German first!!! "Reading the Rules first is IMPORTANT" so a double sorry [​IMG]

    Sorry but there is nothing about making an intro, it explains some other stuff but not the correct info I need! But thanks for your help^^

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    you need to find that missing info by viewing the nds file system then nef symbol file - then generate the missing symbols GX_init and Fs_readfile(or what ever it is), look through that list and find the missing item write it down somewhere (offset specific)- then you can do the intro thing but it looks like you already have...

    I see the menu you're talking about but this generation I'm stuck on. GX_Init is not on the list coming out of an unmodified ROM (however there is a GX_InitEx) and I don't quite understand how to go about adding it. Generate gives me a an NEF and a TXT file but I'm not seeing how they help.

    Well, I've tried it three times. It has to do with the rom you edited it from. I need to get my own dump of smb3 and see if I can find the symbols that way. I know I said I would try, and I did. Give me some more time.

    The editor itself maybe to blame too...
    eh gotta go to work, will try again on this tommorow. sorry for not getting this to you too quick.

    I tried it too... You must write the right Offsets, that is the only thing what you must do... Then you can change the images. Now we only have to find them out [​IMG]
