    Hey,
    I wanted to ask if anyone knows where the "save data" in a game disc is stored. I'm talking about the banner and text displayed in the Wii settings. Or is it maybe different in every game? Also... is it possible to edit the text and/or banner displayed there? (No, not the save file which is on the wii, but the file in the game that creates that save and "puts" it on the Wii)

    It´s most likely that it is for every game different but try to look after "memcard" or "save" directory and then look after the banner.tpl (it´s the banner graphic) [​IMG]

    It's possible to edit but it will be defaulted to the one on the game disc everytime you make a new save...

    To edit, unpack the save file (data.bin), change the images and repack...

    He wants to edit the "default" one on the game disc.

    He did say "No, not the save file which is on the wii..."

    It is stored in the opening.bnr which contains the banner of the channel, the sound and the save logo [​IMG]

    This is the "00000000.app" of a channel.

    Ah, thx guys.
    Well, my only guess is that it's in a "logo.bin" file because there is nothing called like banner, save, mem or sth like that. But I dunno how to extract it... In Hex-Editor it starts with "MSCF" and a bit later there is "logo.tpl". I also have some other files using the same format (well, at least MSCF at the beginning too) which I would really like to extract... Anyone knows how? FE100 failed, U8extr failed, dunno what else to try.
