    I built this little cSM helper for me, maybe some of you might find it useful.
    If you dislike it, please don't flame me, as said I built it just for me, but I thought I share it with you [​IMG])

    It did a great job for me when creating twoSM, so I may help you, too.
    All predefined elements are in English (some OS-specific are German because my Vista is German).

    You need to change the paths in the INI file before you can use it.

    When I was using it it was called "tool" and had hardcoded paths. I polished it a bit for you guys (INI stuff and so on ..) [​IMG]

    Have fun!

    //EDIT:
    If you're on Vista and it's throwing an error, try running it in Admin mode, because it needs some Visual Basic OCXes it tries to load when they do not exist [​IMG]
    This is needed only once per system, I think.

    Oh, I forgot about those.
    Please redownload the package, they're now included.

    //EDIT: If that doesn't fix it, try running it in Admin mode! (Right click -> Run as Administrator)

    what does it mean by

    Please define a valid folder in "csmsuite.ini".
    Use absolute paths, for example:
    C:\wii\csm

    please explain

    It builds up two Windows Explorer-like frames, and you have to define the paths the frames show.
    For example:

    You want to edit your 0000045.app, so you set Frame one ("path1") to C:\wii \ 00045-app-out
    And you want to have your pictures in Frame two ("path2"), so you set it to C:\wii\csm-images

    This doesn't convert or do anything, it is only intended to keep some order.
    I can add a tool if you send it to me [​IMG]

    I don't have enough skills to do so [​IMG]
    But I wouldn't appreciate such tool, if that came out every noob would build it's own crap theme and quality themes will be hard to find...

    Great one!
    I also got a tool like this. I made it with VB net. it's that cheap and has only buttons, but works for deash, convert and yaz0enc...

    Some skilled programmer should bring out a real tool.

    respect to twofive!

    Well I'm working on a tool that will:
    - decompress ASH files using ASH.exe by Crediar (already done check my sig)
    - encode ASH files using yaz0enc
    - replace a TPL
    - extract a .app
    - compress a .app

    All that just by ticking check boxes so that even n00bs will be able to make their own csm
