    Is there a way to have more than one .cia theme installed on your 3DS?

    Whenever I try to install another it overrides the one I currently have.

    Do I have to cut the audio clips, or could I set a loop for it?
    And does it have to be exported as a wav?

    Export as WAV, FLAC or AIFF (you can export as MP3/Ogg Vorbis/AAC but you may lose a lot of quality without any benefit). You can set the loop in BRSTM/BCSTM Conversion Tool.

    For some reason the preview isn't working for me?

    I double checked the extention
    Previews: sdmc:/Themes/MyThemeName/preview.png

    and it is correct. So I don't know what the problem is?

    Hmmm, strange I have two themes installed, one is the StarBomb - Greatest Hits and the other is my own Viva Pinata. One has the exact dimensions while mines doesn't yet neither work?

    Can someone please provide a file with the dimensions of the preview? Thank you!

    EDIT-Nvm I found the issue, for some reason I made a preview folder. Anyways Thanks!

    SPECIAL NOTE+\+ I just want to warn people about messing with the check marks to the side of the advance settings, don't do it unless you know exactly what you are doing. There is a chance it may glitch your images and that theme will become corrupt. Your best bet is to work with a theme that already has the check marks you want.

    Getting errors when attempting to install themes, with ninjhax. It would normally work as a .cia with Gateway.
    Yes I followed the instructions to put the themes in: SD:/3ds/CHMM/Themes/
    I can see the themes and even the previews. But when I try to install ANY theme, it asks me to restart or exit. I'm trying to get a theme installed to sysnand 9.0.

    Debug error is here not just for fun but for being reported in case of errrors. You can't get an error which says to restart or exit without tellink you what kind of error is.

    Help! Is there a way to remove a theme from EMUNAND without booting into EMUNAND, either through the computer using the SD Card or through SYSNAND? I loaded a corrupt theme and accidentally switched off without changing themes now I can't get back into Gateway Mode.

    I would greatly appreciate help!


    EDIT-Is there some other way other than loading up the safe Nintendo 3DS Folder?

    Well I fixed it anyways. . though it took a while.

    Alright, the "Error" message says

    "Error: [string "?:]72: cannot access extdata archive
    Press A to restart
    Press B to exit


    What's this mean, do I need to already be using a premium theme?

    Edit: Nvm that is what was happening. You should also add that to your main post, as a warning to users who don't have any premium themes enabled. It'll help out.
    Usually when I'm having an issue, I read the main post to find an answer. I can't always rely on it though, which is why I post instead.

    When you receive this error is cause you're executing CHMM on an old extdata format type and this could be caused by two things:

    1) CHMM is executed on a Firmware which doesn't support Theme System (like 4.5)
    2) CHMM is executed on a NAND which had not genereated Theme extdata.

    If the case is the 2, you just have to open official Theme switch app and it will genereate Theme extdata automatically.

    You don't have to have a premium theme, you just have to open the theme settings so it will write the extdata information. essentially you were trying to install a theme without the system knowing it had the ability to use themes.

    Need for an N3DS Ninjhax user to test if CSND works correctly on new version. Anyone available?

    Yes, sound preview if theme makers will put BGM preview in their themes.

    Just installed it. Can't get past the instruction screen. : (

    I can't even exit it. All it says is Press Power to initialize, but every time i press it, nothing happens, and when i hold it, the app shuts down instead.

    EDIT:

    I got passed it.
    Had to hold down power button for about 2 secs.
    Tad bit tricky. You MIGHT wanna remove it or set a trigger button to activate the help screen instead.

    EDIT EDIT:
    Never mind, realised why it's needed. Might wanna change the instructions to make it a bit clearer though.

    To me, you don't need to hold but just press Power Button (I'm with a N3DS 9.0).

    Ah, perhaps it might be just me, but the list of themes doesn't appear at all if i simply just press it, rather i'd have to hold it for 2 seconds at least.

    Either way, it works perfectly, and the auto home screen refresh's good.
    Thanks! ;)

    Just tried it myself. If I press it once, it takes like 2-3 secs to actually show the list and since you're holding the power button for 2 secs, it just seems to work faster :P
