yeah, this.

from what i've heard elsewhere, this file can be as large as 128KBs, firstly is that true? and if it is, how do i make a .bin that huge?
And do i insert it as ExGFX60.bin?
I don't know where you heard it can be 128kb because the max is 0x8000 bytes which is 8kb 32kb. What you might have heard though is that this is 128x128 pixels square for a 8kb 4bpp graphic file.

Also the Alt ExGFX which are 60-63 are just inserted like any other ExGFX file, the biggest difference is they are not compressed so they will take up quite a bit of space in your rom. The space you use the Alt ExGFX from as well is different File 60 uses C00-FFF, 61 is 1000-13FF, 62 is 1400-17FF, and 63 uses 1800-1BFF.

Now If I'm wrong about any of that I hope someone chimes in but this is how I always understood it.

Small correction: 0x8000 bytes is actually equal to 32kb, not 8kb. It's equivalent in size to 8 normal graphics files.
