  • Addition Jotted down everything in order.
  • Adjustment Cleaned things up a bit, and added some details.
This tutorial is currently under heavy WIP, but is being published in case I forget to finish it.

Enough content is here to follow, it just needs some more details.

A simple guide to simple texture editing!

A SMM3DS Texture Modding Tutorial:
----------------------------------------------------

Dumping the Game:

----------------------------------------------------
Use Hourglass 9 to dump your game.
     - Put the payload (Hourglass9.firm) into "SD:\luma\payloads"
     - Hold Start while booting your 3DS.
     - Select "Hourglass9"
     - Select "Miscellaneous..." ()
     - Select "Dump Title from SysNAND" (Or EmuNAND if that's where you have Mario Maker)
     - Press up and down to find the 400's folder.
     - Press left and right to find the Title ID that matches below.

00040000001A0300 - Super Mario Maker (J)
00040000001A0400 - Super Mario Maker (U)
00040000001A0500 - Super Mario Maker (E)
    (Title IDs found via http://www.3dsdb.com/)

     - Press the A button to start dumping your game.
     - Once the process is complete, press Start to reboot your 3DS, and then power it off from the Home Menu.

----------------------------------------------------

Extracting Content from the Game:

----------------------------------------------------
Use the "Hans Pack" to extract from the .CIA file.
     - Extract it into a folder called "Hans_Scripts for Mario Maker."
     - Insert the SD card back into the computer, and navigate to "SD:/files9/".
     - Copy 00040000001A0*00.cia into the Hans_Scripts folder.
     - Run "extract_romfs.bat"
     - Type in "No," and press Enter.
     - Type in the name of the .cia file ("00040000001A0*00.cia"), and then press Enter again.
     - Wait for it to complete, and then close CMD.

----------------------------------------------------

Extracting Content from the Game's Files:

----------------------------------------------------
Use EFE (Every File Explorer) to open a .szs archive.

----------------------------------------------------

Modifying Content:

----------------------------------------------------
Use smb123w64gb's version of Ohana3DS Rebirth to extract textures from the ".bin" file (which is really a .bch).

Just edit the PNGs. with Paint, Photoshop, or whatever you like.
Whatever you do, just be sure to save it as a .png when you're done.

----------------------------------------------------

Reimporting Content:

----------------------------------------------------
- Import ".bin" with EFE.

- Putting into Luma folder

- Enjoy!

    Alot of comments but I successfully changed the szs. I put it in luma/titles/00040000001A0400/romfs/model/ and made sure game patching was on. The mod is meant to change mario in smb1 style.The big problem is when I load the smb 1 style in mario maker it gives me a crash dump.

    I see it says to import bin with efe but how do I insert new png's to bin? Also, I don't see an import option in efe.

    I edited the png's after exporting them with ohana 3ds rebirth, but I don't get what I do now. I tried importing them to ohana 3ds rebirth but it doesn't do anything

    With assistance from other tutorials that help with some specific steps, I managed to get this to work just fine for block textures and themes. However, the process does not appear to be the same for enemy sprite, because completing the same process as listed didn't appear to work for me. Any ideas?

    Should add HackingToolKit9DS by dumping a CXI with GodMode9, its WAY easier to dump that way.
