    Today I am excited to finally announce the first official alpha release of my theme and boot splash manager,
    Anemone3DS.

    The features of the theme manager include:
    • Support for installing a single theme to your 3DS
    • Support for installing up to 10 shuffle themes
    • QR code reading to install themes from QR codes
    • Support for previewing your themes and splashes before installing them
    • Support for installing boot splashes (Luma3DS only)
    • Install BGM only
    Coming soon: https://trello.com/b/F1YSa1VK

    Usage:
    1. Create the /Themes/ and /Splashes/ folders on your SD card
    2. Put all of your themes in the /Themes/ folder. These can either be zips, or folders.
    3. Put all of your splashes in the /Splashes/ folder. These must be folders.
    4. Instructions for usage are available once you're in the app.
    5. One undocumented feature I forgot about and am too lazy to fix now because it's 3 AM and I'm tired as hell from working on boot splashes for the past 2 hours: pressing START will quick reboot your 3DS. This is necessary for themes to apply properly.
    Credits:
    Too lazy to copy it here, see the Github.

    It's 3:30 AM, I've been working on this non-stop for the past 6 hours.

    I feel so dead, but I feel so alive.

    Okay, I already found a breaking bug (wew).

    If you don't have a Splashes/ folder (and probably at least 1 splash in it), nothing works (you just get a nice FAILURE) screen.

    I'll try to fix it as soon as possible but I'm so exhausted so I may literally pass out at my laptop, if you come across this bug and I haven't shipped a fix yet just use the workaround above.

    Why is there a "minus" button in the screenshot? Did you mean "Select"? :P @astronautlevel

    That's what I thought, but the system font documentation just said "wii select" so I wasn't positive

    Maybe - there's bound to be bugs in this, and there's quite an extensive "unimplemented features" list.

    Cool app! I've been wanting to use splashed on my 3DS and there's finally an easy way to install them.

    Wow, thanks a lot! Themely and CHMM2 didn't work (for now at least), but this one actually worked!

    And now I sit and wait for you to become an asshole of some kind, because it seems like devs involved with the theme managing side of things end up being twats. Until then, great job.
