BrawlBox and Smash Items – The Guide
BrawlBox – Get it Here – The guide from here-on will assume you already acquired the latest version of BrawlBox, and that you already have a common3.pac file (aka item pac). If you don’t have a common3.pac item file, download the old NB file here, with pre-set up textures.
Always keep a back-up of your Common3.pac before editing!
Ok, so with the latest version of BrawlBox (previously known as SmashBox), it is now possible to replace Item textures with ease, from within the Common3.pac file itself. From now on, I will release item textures as Pac files, and you (the user) will replace said texture with the one provided. For example, I will release a texture in this post to accompany the guide; the Firefox Smash Ball.
First and foremost, download the Firefox Smash Ball PAC Here. Its not zipped or anything, so its ready to go.
Launch BrawlBox, then open up your Common3.pac file, as shown in the image below.
Once you open up you open up your Common3.pac file, BrawlBox should look something like this:
Our main focus for this mini tutorial is the Icon called ItmCommonBrres ; click on the +sign next to it, and a sub-menu will appear, with all of the Item PAC files in an alphabetical list.
Now lets replace the smashball texture in the common3.pac with the Firefox Smash Ball previously downloaded. To do this, take a look at the name of the Firefox Smash ball texture you downloaded. Its called ItmSmashballBrres. In BrawlBox, scroll down until you find a similar file; right click it, and select Replace option (not replace all).
Once you hit the Replace option, look for the Firefox Smash Ball Pac file, and obviously replace the file.
Congratulations! You have successfully replaced a custom texture. [If you are savvy with BrawlBox, you can go ahead and confirm that the textured replaced properly by opening up the +tab under the Smashball pac, and then clicking yet another +tab under textures.] Now that you replaced the texture, its time to save the modified Common3.pac. Just go to file, and hit the Save option. BrawlBox will then compress the new file. Warning! This will override your previous common3.pac, so make a back-up before saving!
Make sure the new Common3.pac is around 4.80MB. If its something ridiculous like 1.3MB, then then there was an error during compression. You might have to re-apply the new texture (restart BrawlBox). Assuming everything went correct, just place the new Common3.pac file in the …pf/system directory of your SD card.
