PostSubject: Swapping Backgrounds in Super Mario 64   Sat Nov 20, 2010 11:04 pm

Now this is pretty hard for people who just started hacking Mario 64. Now what you are gonna do first is download something called Cygnus hex editor. once you have. Load up toad's tool 64 and pick any level you want to swap backgrounds with. Okay. Now you are at your level now click the expert bar in the top left corner and once have , go down one and find this box with colors Red Green Blue Gray. Now scroll down with that and look for the 0x17 editor and click it. once have . Go down and look for number OO7 in hexidecimal form on toadstool and find the OxOA (HAO) and click it. once you have done that . look at the Rom adress in the bottom left corner in hexidecimal form and remember the numbers example : O454AF8 (Castle Grounds) now once you have that stored in your head it is time to open Cygnus hex editor and your gonna open your rom . Keep in mind to leave toad's tool 64 running while doing this. Now on Cygnus hex editor click edit then click go to : Type in the Rom adress hint hint example : 0454AF8 and click go. Now find the bankset start and here are all the backgrounds:

Haunted House = C3AFD5-C4F915 = 06
Cool Cool Mountain = B5D855-B7D995 = 04
Shifting Sand Land = C12E95-C32FD5 = 05
Bob-omb Battlefield = B35715-B55855 = 00
Snow Man's Land = B5D855-B7D995 = 04
Wet Dry World = BC2C15-BE2D55 = 02
Jolly Roger Bay = B85995-B9A2D5 = 08
Tiny Huge Island = B35715-B55855 = 00
Rainbow Ride = BEAD55-C0AE95 = 03
Castle Grounds = B35715-B55855 = 00
Bowser 1 Course = C57915-C77A55 = 07
Bowser's Fire Sea = BA22D5-BBAC15 = 01
Secret Aquarium = BEAD55-C0AE95 = 03
Bowser Third Course = C7FA55-C9FB95 = 09
Lethal Lava Land = BA22D5-BBAC15 = 01
Dire Dire Docks = B35715-B55855 = 00
Whomp's Fortress = BEAD55-C0AE95 = 03
Castle Courtyard = C3AFD5-C4F915 = 00
Wing Cap = BEAD55-C0AE95 = 03
Bowser First Battle = C57915-C77A55 = 07
Rainbow Clouds = BEAD55-C0AE95 = 03
Bowser Second Battle = BA22D5-BBAC15 = 01
Bowser Third Battle = C7FA55-C9FB95 = 09
Tall Tall Mountain = B35715-B55855 = 00

Now once your are at the slot then since example is castle grounds find the bankset start which is B35715 and it should look like this :

Now for the tricky part. click edit and click find and type in 19 00 00 xx 80 27

That says the bankset start B35175 now you just change it to something else like the Lethal lava land one which is BA22D5 . Then the offset end is B55855 and this is where the offset end starts :

And the offset end for this is B55855 which is up there to for Castle grounds and we would replace it to BBAC15 (lethal lava lands ) offset end.

Now for the tricky part. click edit and click find and type in 19 00 00 xx 80 27

the xx stands for the two bankset offset numbers which for castle grounds is 00 which is up there as well. so you would type 19 00 00 00 80 27 and click find. then you will see a section like this:

See where it says 19 00 00 00 . now lethal lava lands would be 19 00 00 01 so if that's so. click the 3rd row 00 from 19 and replace it with the bankset offset number which would be 01 then click save and it is done. the project will look like this :

Enjoy !
