For NES TSB

The trick to editing these is to get the tile number (hex values) using nesticle or fceuxd.

0x02CAAF Midfield NFL shield (also changes the shield on the main menu)

0x0158DE TEAM NFL Intro graphic

I don't know much about this stuff either, but I know you need a hex editor to do it.  There's a free program called translhextion.

No, like Tecmonster said, you'll need a hex editor. Translhextion is a really good option. - http://www.romhacking.net/download/utilities/219/

Essentially there are pointers that dictate which tiles to use, where to position them, and what palettes to use.  Where to find them are specified above...not actually how to edit them.


 


0x016B8E NFL SUPER PRO FOOTBALL large text actually starts at 0x016B8D


 


There you will find the code AA 8C 99 C0 C1 8E 9B CA A4 5D 5D 5D 5D 00 00 00 00


The first value is the palette.  The next 16 are references to 16 tiles.


 


If you replace the above with 8A 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 41 42 43 44 45 46


You will get

It draws the top 4 tiles then moves to the next 4 tiles.  I'm unsure on how the palettes work.


 


Thus two letters = 17 bytes - 1 Palette + 16 tiles

I just got done working on this screen so i think i kind of have it figured out.  Basically when you open your ppu viewer (or nesticle is great for this), it is loaded with all those symbols that you can use to piece together whatever letter you need (just write down their tile values to enter into hex) .  As far as i can tell, letters are paired together (at least the NFL, which is all most are going to want to change anyhow).  So you have NF, and L space and they are listed as knobbe said with pallete first and then the letters.  8C 99 is the top of the N, C0 C1 is the top of the F, 8E 9B is the bottom of the N, and CA A4 is the bottom of the F, my best guess is that the 5D's are the underline and 00's are blanks at the bottom (where his CDEF shows).


 


So for example, if you wanted a CFL to show in place of the NFL just type 90 A5 over the 8C 99 and 92 A7 over the 8E 9B in hex, and you should have it.
