Hi there. Dunno if this is the right place to post this, feel free to move it to some other part of the forum.

I'm developing a game for N3DS with Unity and i wanna give it a nice 3D banner, but so far im finding zero information on how to make a banner.
Unity allegedly has a way to add 2D banners easily but it crashed my builds so i stopped trying with that.

anyone successfully added 3D banners to any homebrew of yours? or found a tutorial on how to use banertool out there? the github has zero information. It couldn't have less information.

Anyone wants to know how? it involves nintendo developer's official software and such, fyi

There's actually a way to make it without Nintendo's SDK. However, I think that without the SDK you aren't able to add custom animations or prevent the model from spinning.

Is very easy to do it without the SDK actually. You just need to make a model with a single object named "COMMON" and all the textures must be UV Maps of bmps images named "COMMON" or "COMMON[2 Numbers]". You have to export the object with mtl and use Every File Explorer for transform the object into a bcres which can be turned into a banner.bin using bannertool.

There's a thread explaining this with more details and all the steps. The thread is named "[Tutorial] Creating 3D banners from 3D Models for CIA's". It would still be great if you could upload the tutorial of making a banner with the SDK. Tho, im not totally sure if we can say how to use the SDK here...

that tutorial didn't help me much, i couldn't convert models into banners with bannertool for some reason (i did manage to convert audios with it, so it's not like i didn't figure out how it works) and my method using the SDK is actually pretty easy too, once you have all the software running and the workflow sorta memorized. I'll make a guide soon enough. If in the meantime someone can tell me if that's legal it would be great lol.
