    Is there any step-by-step tutorial on how to create new themes yourself? I tried downloading some from ndsthemes.com but the closest they had were R4DS and they are incompatible with the R4i when I tried it. (All I got was the same random black and green style for each one) I researched but couldn't find any how-to for this. Any help would be appreciated!

    For Wood? Wood and AK2i can use the same themes, so tutorials on either of hose should work.

    IIRC ndsthemes packages it's downloads incorrectly, something to do with the calendar folder... but it's been so long I don't remember which files to move where to fix it.

    Well I just kinda guessed how to do them lol but i use the acekard skin theme editor.
    Downloaded a few themes and studied the files and folders and what not to see what does what. Usuaully i just open each files and replace them with whatever color/picture i want and then save them. To change the colors of the gui i use the ski editior... and do the ini system settings there :P

    Yeah this is for Wood. I ended up downloading Dan Taylor's Acekard Skin Editor and it works brilliantly, everything I can't edit from that (aka the non ini system settings stuff; also, the gui editor is awesome there!) I edit by replacing the image files with ones I prefer while I change the colors, placings of calendar clock etc. and everything else concerning the GUI in the editor itself. Thanks for the help everyone!

    You need to go into the folder of the skin you're editing, find the image you want to replace, name the new image the same name as the old one, and insert it into that skin's folder in place of the original.
