also if you want to add an audio clip follow this (you'll need goldwave (or an alternitive) and ATRAC3 audio codecs):

audio can be no longer than 55seconds max and 500kb in size, to get that you’ll probably have to cut a clip from an existing audio file.

once thats done start up goldwave and open the audio clip, hit save as… and under save as type… select (wave) .wav and under attributes select one of the ATRAC3 options (its best to chose 66kbps) and hit save (if ATRAC3 doesn't show up then the codecs haven’t been fully installed) then rename the audio.wav to audio.at3 from there you should be able to figure out the rest.

P.S., if anyone wants to use the psar from my e-boot go ahead, just note that it'll only work for HBL use, and will not work for actually playing the demo itself

If some one wants to add their own splash screen on patapon 2 eboot, they can just edit our custom eboot cause I think its a lot easier.
1. Open custom eboot with pbp unpacker and extract it somewhere easy to find ( such as desktop )
2. When extracted, open up data.psp with hex editor and go 000005F0 and highlight everything from their up to the end.
3. Open up your image ( usually 5 kb ) with hex editor, click ctrl A and then copy.
4. Go to your data.psp and paste it in 000005F0 then click save.
5.OPen pbp unpacker, click new and assemble your eboot an then click save
Now you have a custom patapon2 eboot with your own splash screen :)

no, it just replaces the black screen after the psp logo while the game loads

the image should be 480 x 272. Just to point something out, adding splash screen doesnt really affect the loading time of patapon because every eboot has standard booting time on the splash screen ( when psp logo appear after you hit x on your eboot ) and splash screen has some blank screen on it where the psp logo fade. This is where we overwrite the empty screen and put our own splash screen such as image and text. The only effect that it will do to an eboot is the size coz it can make the eboot file size bigger ( but its not that big ). But no worries, you can hex edit your eboot and remove some part of it which is not really needed when running hbl such as its gameplay or you can just borrow cobaltex modified eboot coz it has size reduction although this will remove your ability to play the patapon game coz this is merely for loading hbl.

These are nice guides and are easy to follow. And All the splash screen does is show a picture of your choice after the white PSP screen.
