How to override region for an ISO with no header nor banner?

Post by patters » Sat Jul 11, 2020 3:09 pm

The extracted .tgc image from the Zelda Ocarina of Time / Master Quest disc lacks a header and banner file, so when it's loaded into the various ISO tools those fields are greyed out. What needs patching to change it from JP to US region so that Force Text Mode doesn't need setting to ANSI in Swiss to get it to work properly?

You just need to include iso.hdr and opening.bnr. You can open the HDR (or the iso with the file) with HxD and modify the name, code and region as you wish. Then just open the new image with the GameCube Rebuilder and modify the rest of the information.

You can also create your own BNR with Bitmap2BNR to change the display image.

With the exception of HxD, the other programs can be found here.
