As it says, is it possible to modify the exe file of smbx 1.4.2 and above, and soon we could a get a possibility to hack more stuff than we could ever do in smbx 1.3, and we might soon make it compatible with several smbx extensions (lunalua for example).

First of all you must unpack it (it has been packed with PE-Compact thing), then disassemble.
With LunaLUA it is NOT compatible, because address space used in LunaLUA to communicate with game engine, made especially for alone SMBX 1.3 build and even rebuilding same source even small change may result different address space.

But I need to download a exe unpacker with no free trial (if I can't do it, then you will have to do it yourself), but anyways, maybe if we use a hex editing program on smbx 1.4.2 and then compare to its values to smbx 1.3.0.2's, we could possibly find out how to make a port of lunalua for smbx 1.4.2!

Extractor didn't show any image files, even if I disabled txt files being scanned.
If you need help with anything related to SMBX38A (that isn’t TeaScript) come ask me. I know quite a bit about how expanded NPC text codes and other stuff works.

I told above that this exe is packed (I.e. compressed with a packer utility), therefore disassembly or resource finder takes no effect. Anyway, try to fetch for filedata "resource.tea" file via same extractor tool
