    First tutorial by @Méga_Mew has been released: https://gbatemp.net/threads/tutorial-how-to-make-a-custom-
    badge.403281/

    Great tutorials by @Ericzander for both homebrew users and emuNAND users:
    Homebrew:
    emuNAND:

    User @szymbar15 - managed to dupe badges.
    User @Februarysn0w - provided badge data with 950 badges.
    User @Februarysn0w - provided comments on hex editing.
    User @szymbar15 - provided information about how badges are stored.
    User @szymbar15 - found out how to edit text in the badge placer menu.
    User @Kaphotics - provided information on how to add a footer to a .bclim file through hex editing.
    User @szymbar15 - managed to open a badge's .bclim file.
    User @Méga-Mew - successfully injected a .bclim into the badge placer menu.
    User @Méga-Mew - successfully injected a badge.
    User @Méga-Mew - fixed the badge's shape.
    Setting up a database for badges: @shutterbug2000

    Resources:

    https://github.com/szymbar15/extdata_dump/releases/tag/vB -- Fast and stable way to dump Badge Center's files.
    https://github.com/szymbar15/extdata_dump/blob/master/config.txt -- Config that allows you to automatically dump and replace only the files you need.
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-sunshell-a-powerfull-shell-for-3ds.382483/ -- Another option for dumping Badge Center's files, very slow.
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/wip-ohana3ds-tool.392576/ -- allows you to open .bclim files.
    https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=B6305612E3C95FBD!694&authkey=!ANwz34EVEYjGARc&ithint=folder,rar
    @Februarysn0w's badge data, containing over 1000 badges. update any time when I got new badges. also I give permission to folder all the people to upload download the files.
    How a .bclim works:
    "4 bytes per pixel. This means that in 8,192 byte big file you can fit an image that would have 2,048 pixels.
    For example 32x64. Or 64x32. Or 128x16. And any file that has these dimensions will be exactly 8192 bytes IF NOT for the metadata in the footer, which can't be avoided." (by user @szymbar15)


    Further documentation of the progress on badge hacking will be edited into the post.

    I'd remove that PNG2BCLIM in favor of Ohana3DS, it's a much better tool :)
    I'm taking this post as placeholder for future tutorials!

    When the database is running, then I'll take them. But for now, no.

    There are no tutorials for noobs yet, however, there are a few for experienced users. These can be found in the original thread.
    I haven't added them because I'd rather wait for noob-friendly tutorials.

    kay i'l keep an eye on this thread then, thanks.
    this is so exciting. i like the idea of badges to decorate your home menu. but the arcade game is just dreadful.
