I get how to do the wallpaper now. At least this is what works for me. I put the relevant files in USHS>Saturn_emu_inject_datas>games>GF>romfs>Wallpaper.

I used the Wallpaper that cucholix uploaded earlier in this thread. I just wanted a plain black border so used the smallest WP_GF_001.tex file, copied it 3 times and renamed the other files

WP_GF_002.tex
WP_GF_003.tex
WP_GF_004.tex

What I don't get is how to change the playing guide to english. Do I just remove the USHS>Saturn_emu_inject_datas>games>GF>romfs>PlayingGuide>Japanese folder? Or do I need to somehow attach an image like those supplied by Zer-o back on page 23 of this thread?

its the settings file you have
delete your save data for the game
next time you run the game, it should be in english if not, take the texture cucholix made from here and replace it

The save game for Guardian Force? I deleted it but the playing guide is still in Japanese.

I use the texture file cucholix made when prompted by the script. Should I be putting it somewhere else too? Or Selecting it again when asked if I want to add my own Playing Guide by the script?

Thanks for your help buddy

Concerning the errors from the log I sent, it says that the python encoder cannot encode characters like 'é' or 'è'. I tried to remove them from the script but it seems that they might come there as parameters to some functions - or something like that.

Now I'm having this on building the nsp:
Code:
 File "c:\python37-32\lib\encodings\cp1251.py", line 19, in encode
UnicodeEncodeError: 'charmap' codec can't encode character '\xe8' in position 8: character maps to <undefined>
An error occurred during the process, check your source files and the remaining space on the hard drives.
Press any key to continue . . .
Concerning this path: "c:\python37-32\lib\encodings\cp1251.py" - it is not found in my file system. I wonder what it means...

Got it. What a dummy. I just needed to pull up the options screen by hitting + and -

Sorry people

test by adding the Texture.tex to your RomFS folder, delete save and confirm you get the menu in English

@shadow256 after a bit of fiddling i finally got the script to run. on the first try i just injected the game nights into dreams into the guardian force nsp and everything was fine.
but on the second try when i changed the cover art and ini file, the save states are broken now. is this a know issue or have I done something wrong?

did you delete your game save, is it a new Title ID

How do you enable 4MG for games like SFZ 3?
open the GuardianForce_Switch.ini file and change
- CartridgeID="00" (No RAM Cartridge)
- CartridgeID="21" (Backup RAM Cartridge)
- CartridgeID="5a" (1MB RAM Cartridge | DEFAULT)
- CartridgeID="5c" (4MB RAM Cartridge)
