How can i EDIT the Text ???? am not able to edit.

I was able to upload the default resource BMP and tried Editing. I just cleared the text and changed the background to black. Hence, i replaced with a Black BMP of the same size with no text. Now the color of the default text changed to Black and the text as not affected.

So how do i change the text ???

Have installed the take ownership Reg Hack. Have installed Restorator Trial. Have opened dll. Have deleted Bitmap folder... tried to save and unable to

As an alternative I also tried reshacker and when I open the dll file, nothing, the reshacker window stays blank, showing no contents or folders to delete

**** why mess with something like this ? the way I see it, and seeing how I learned things the hard way, I believe that there's no reason to fix something If it aint broken.

Hello Jordan,

This is not about fixing, but about customizing and personalizing to fit one's needs or wants instead. That's all.

ok so i edited my .bmp there were 6 of them, recompiled .dll and now it still says windows 7 + build info only instead of the text being the origional colors it is colored with the new image i made, kinda like if u were to cut letters out of paper to make a stencil and then put the stencil over a picter, still says windows 7 such n such with my picture peakin out the holes. any idea where this secondary water mark is so i can kill it?

Dridzz, i was about to change mine and forgot where it was located so came here to double check and noticed. Maybe might want to add in the tut to add / rename the default one to basebrd-BACKUP.dll
or whoops, really mean even better like the branding folder to branding-backup

Just incase they want to go back or need to etc.. Plus incase of mess up, testing or whatever.. etc etc...

Right?

oohh forgot. Anybody that has done it so far ...

Which exact number is the one we need to change to custom the .bmp to our own brand ? All of them or 2120 ??

Did you create a new bmp image with the text you want on it ? and also did you redo/create all of them or just one ?
