    Does the CycloDS still support this? All searching comes back with 1.4beta supporting it but nothing for later versions.

    Tried putting it in root, in the cyclods folder, in the skin folder, in the folder with the skin I'm currently using. Still not working.

    It's the right size, with the right name (gbaframe.bmp).

    Any help? Starting to nark me a bit now. [​IMG]

    According to the manual and your description, sounds like it should work.

    I just tried and it worked for me. (although I prefer no border, JMO)

    try opening your gbaframe.bmp using paint and re saving it.

    Also make sure it's, 24-bit (based on my experience with the other Cyclo bmps as well as reqs for other cards.) Not sure if a different bitrate will make it unusable but 24-bit should do it just fine.

    Maybe change it from gbaframe.bmp to "gbaframe" if your operating system hides known file extension types.

    I have done the same thing by adding the extension and my file ended up looking like pops.txt.txt

    Maybe that will do it.

    Thanks again for the help!

    Not sure which it was because I did both, but I just named the file gbaframe as it was already a .bmp file, and I also converted it using Paint where before I used Photoshop.

    Looking awesome now! [​IMG]
