NavTweak or Splashscreen experts? HELP?

Hey guys,

Ive spent the past 2-3 hours reading the NavTweak thread on xoutpost.com NavTweak - Xoutpost.com

I cant seem to sort out a few things, I think Im close but Im getting bleary eyed and frustrated. Ive installed the program and the operating environment, I can open up an update disc in the program. I can see the splash, change the splash to the one I want but I cant for the life of me figure out how to get it back to a new disc.

Ive also copied over all the contents from the update disc I want to use (Thanks Lunker) with the "night vision" to a separate directory on my HDD.

When I go to "File/Save" in NavTweak Im not sure where to put the saved file or what to name it. Then when I try to create an ISO from that saved file I get an error from my ISO creation software.

I have NERO so Im pretty sure I can create an ISO but Im stuck.

Can anyone help?

Theres a virtual beer in it for anyone that can walk me thru this.

OK, I did this over a year ago and my memory is fading but here goes. I'm not exactly sure what you've done but to change the wording of the accept screen, I opened NavTweak, open folder V_2, open folder RR, open folder 0101, open folder BMWC01S, open folder app_sw, open navboot, then select Strings, language American, and scroll down to 1/706. Change the text to what you want and then save the navboot file. Then I used UltraISO, navigated to the proper folder and hit F3 (add files) and inserted the modified version of navboot. Saved the image and then burned on a DVD with ImgBurn. Search for board member Dereki. He posted modified splash screens a while back and I just used one of them. I'm not sure how to use your own pic in the splash. Good luck. Hope some of this helps.

Is it just the navboot file that Im bringing over to the disc? Cause if it is, thats where Im getting an error.

Does it go something like this?

Drill to the navboot file in navtweak
Edit the settings the way I want allbeit splash screens or accept screens etc
Save the file back in the directory I drilled into and save it as navboot
Drag all those files from the update disc over to my burning software and burn yes?

I'm far from a computer guy, but yes I saved the modified navboot file (like on my desktop) and then inserted it into the Nav program using a program called UltraISO which is a free download, and then saved it. Then burned the DVD with Imgburn which is also a free download.

I've done a splash-screen, wording, British-voice thing on mine as well using navtweak. It was over a year ago, but I'll try to help as well.

What you need to burn to the CD is the .mdf file. The entire .mdf file. The one I created ended up being 294MB in size. I used ImgBurn to burn it.

Hdhntr, it's the 4th line here that I believe isn't working for you. I am not sure if NERO will accomplish what you need for the ISO. Easiest way is to search for that UltraISO program, download it free and you will be putting your navboot file in there to create the entire file - like Mike S. is talking about, it should be several hundred meg in size. It's been awhile since I've done all mine as well so memory is faded but you want to open up an existing Nav ISO file in UltraISO and replace the navboot part with your new modified Navboot file.

hth,
SP

Ok so, those files that I dragged over to my hdd should be made into an iso image right? Then extract the navboot file, edit it, put it back into the iso image then burn that to a disc?

Essentially, yes. Drag the files *out* of the ISO that need changing. Make your changes to those individual files. Then you need to reincorporate the changed files back *into* the ISO file (or .mdf file, depending on the extension) and reburn the large file to the CD.

k now I think I get it. Make a virtual CD on my HDD of the update disc, edit the navboot file from that image, put it back in, burn that back to a new CD.

Ill try this tonight. Cant really play with those files like that on the ole work PC. IT tends to get pissed. hahaha
