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."
