I'll attach what my zip archive looks like to see if the error is there. the archive is in zip format, I used Usagi 3ds theme editor, which when previewing in the program it looks perfect, bgm and sound effects work there, i downloaded other working themes to see how to format my folder, but my 3ds wont allow me to install the theme. i didn't upload my theme to theme plaza yet since I'm just testing it out first, i sent the archive to my 3ds wirelessly from my PC using the homebrew app FTPDB, I sent the theme to the "Themes" folder on the root of my 3ds's SD card where the other themes are stored. The theme appears on anemone but refuses to install.

Are the others body_lz.bin or are they named body_LZ.bin? It may be a simple thing like that.

need help again. this time I downloaded official themes from google drive and anemone doesn't recognize the body_LZ.bin file, which is definitely in each archive, example screenshot here. what to do? the only themes I've gotten to work with anemone were ones downloaded from theme plaza. if I make my own theme or download a theme from elsewhere anemone doesn't want to install it for some reason. I appreciate any help!

no, they’re compressed. thats the problem then? i figured they should be the same as the ones downloaded from themeplaza haha. i’ll see if that fixes the problem. thanks!

I don't use Anemone myself but assume that it doesn't have support for compressed files, so hopefully that's the issue.

Alright, so I had the same problem like 2 minutes ago, have no idea if this is resolved already, but leaving this here if anyone else needs this issue resolved.

Anemone CAN read compressed files, but I'm guessing that if you open the compressed file, there's another folder there which Anemone can't read the files from.

What I did was extract the contents, go into folders until i see all of the files, take all the files and compress them.

It's likely that I could have just taken the folder and put it in my "themes" folder on my 3ds' SD card, but I don't know if that would have worked, so I just took the extra precaution.

Hope this helps.
