DarkWii red theme is awesome. I love the background int eh wii otions menu (it's the darkwii health screen), but I want to remove the sig in the top right corner of "DVBisOK". But I can't work out how to do it.

I tried different methods to change/remove the "DVBisOK" signature on the wii options menu.

1. I extract the setupBtn.ash using u8tool. I convert the tpl to png and edit in Gimp (I only edit the it_BarWii_a.tpl as I want to keep the DarkWii background). Then I repack using u8tool and import the ash to my mym file. However when I convert to csm and install, the background is all wrong, the images lose their quality and it's a real mess.

2. I use the original DarkWii red from DVBisOK. I make a csm. Then I make a new mym file and the only thing I change is the it_BarWii_a.tpl (extracted from thememii) and I put it as stda1 (it's the only entry). If I use simg1 I get an error with mymenu 1.3 that it can't resize the image. As stda1 it seems to work but doesn't change anything so DVBisOK is still there on the background.

What am I doing wrong? I want to keep the darkwii background in the wii options menu because it is cool, but I want to remove DVBisOK and put "Wii" back. However whenever I change anything it screws up the background like I said before.

Can someone help me? Should I use other tools to edit? Or extract?

By the way, many thanks to DVBisOK for the great theme and Gamer-D for his red version too. I combined them both. Used cursor.ash, letter.ash and board.ash from Gamer-D, the rest from DVBisOK. Changed the health.ash to original darkwii theme and the only thing I have left to change is the background in the theme options menu.

thx, until u get the chance to put up a video, do u mind telling us some of the edits u've made?
thx!

edit:
you've included "PAL" in the name of this mym file... but as long as I build a csm using the right *.app for my 4.2U Wii it should work fine, correct?

tested your ntsc theme, the settings menu is all messed up, the screen is white, the buttons have no labels. i had to restart just to get back to the wii menu.

you did a great job otherwise tho, i like the backround of the other sections.

if you decide to try again, we would be very grateful.

also im wondering, would it be hard to make the little flipping and spinning selector on channels stop doing that?
it kinda bothers me, i understand alot of people like it, however i am not one of them...

just not me lol.

if you started it, maybe you can edit it out again?


i have a dream of a perfect, darkwii red theme, with no spinning selectors, and beautiful simple backrounds. deep red highlights and a better custom disc channel. (and a settings menu that works for us ntsc'ers.)

i really wish i knew what i was doing with thememii, however it seems very complicated to me, and i wouldnt know where to start.



btw THANK YOU diddy for your efforts

i will test for u if u want, i build my csm's using thememii

everything worked great with that theme, cept the settings menu. it came up as a white screen with blue label-less buttons.

the spinner can be set back to non spinning quite easy just add the stock my_IplTop_d_FocusOff.brlan and my_IplTop_d_FocusOn.brlan files to the csm after you make it

i g2g get kids to bed but ill fix for NTSC after that

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    But no.
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    emulation isn't telling the silicon to perform a specific way, it's just translating the commands into something the cpu can understand
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    fpga runs them natively
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and i assume there is a level of verification that is not possible with emulation since you can actually probe the pins to verify that it behaves the exact same as real hardware
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    so it's easier to get it 1:1
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    there aren't even virtual pins with emulation that you could "probe", it doesn't go that deep
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    So fpga PS2 when? Hehehe
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    fpga PS1 isn't even out yet
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Just saw an article about Anbernic rg40xxh as a "cheaper alternative to RG Cube". I love it when they do that.

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    i guess they were thinking in emulation capabilities
  • Veho @ Veho:
    In emulation capabilities one can run Gamecube and the other can barely run n64.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    One is Android 13 and the other is Baked Beans OS 0.6 (I'm not even kidding)

    Veho you may be right, all in my PC is probably 1800 dollars and that's using refurbished and mid range parts lol

    People ask why so much.... ROM sets for even PS2 just eat up that much
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Why so much? Because we have it in our minds we need the latest and greatest when pc performance peaked at a consumer level
