Backgrounds are used to display visual novel backgrounds as well as CGs (computer graphics; a common term for full screen art in visual novels that isn't overlaid with sprites). They can be viewed and edited through the background editor.


Backgrounds can easily be replaced in the background editor. Simply press the "Replace" button and select a new image file from disk. Images will be automatically resized to match the size of the currently selected background. Background sizes are as follows:

Background TypeSize (WxH in pixels)Notes
KINETIC_SCREEN256x19216 color images, so make sure your image is exceedingly simple
TEX_CG_DUAL_SCREEN256x512Displayed on both screens, but each portion is taller than the full screen (scrolled with BG_SCROLL)
TEX_CG_WIDE512x192Displayed on bottom screen, but wider than the full screen (scrolled with BG_SCROLL)
TEX_CG_SINGLE256x256Displayed on bottom screen, but taller than bottom screen (scrolled with BG_SCROLL)

CG Titles

Many CGs have titles associated with them that are shown in the Extras CG viewer. These titles can be edited here.
