    I was trying to give DSReader an icon and name so it wouldn't show that default icon and NDS Program File or whatever default name it gives....

    but when I try to edit these things in DSBuff...

    1. I put an icon, of 32x32 size and 16 colors, as the DSReader icon. It's a book, obviously.
    2. I change the displayed name to DSReader and the creator's name and whatnot.
    3. I click save. It glitches the icon.
    4. I fix the icon and click save.
    5. DSBuff gets an error and the .nds file has to be replaced because it's been broken.

    Can anyone send me a premade DSReader .nds file that has the name and icon fixed for Wood R4?

    Don't know much about 'DSBuff' - but I've tried 'RomeR' a few times to change icons in homebrew software without any trouble

    How about giving that a try

    I've done everything.

    I've saved without the box ticked, I've saved with it ticked... Well, actually, that's a lie.
    With the box ticked, it perpetually tells me I need a 32x32 icon with a max of 16 colors.... Even if the icon I picked has exactly those specifications. So it won't save with the homebrew box ticked.

    Make sure you're using a clean copy of the game/homebrew, not one you've tried to edit before.
    Then make sure your image is 16 colors, not 16 bit color. Windows Vista/7 Paint can do 16 color BMPs.
    I'm not sure about GIMP since I don't use it, but in Photoshop it's fairly easy but not obvious:
    1). File -> Save for Web & Devices... (Alt+Shift+Ctrl+S)
    2). Set it to GIF (Default) or PNG-8, and select 16 Colors from the drop down.

    Only other things I can suggest are:
    Make sure you're using DSBuff v1 Final.
    Leave the Internal Title with the default info ("." with 9 spaces).
    And tick Homebrew box if it's a Homebrew game.


    I haven't had a problem making/editing icons.

    1. It was 16 colors. I indexed it to be so. 2. It was the right size. 3. I was using the latest DSBuff. 4. I left the internal title alone. 5. Ticking the homebrew box either made it perpetually say I needed a 32x32 icon with 16 colors... or it would get an error and need to be restarted.

    Either way, it didn't work. I redownloaded DSReader like twelve times.

    Thanks for the help though. [​IMG]

    If you want to upload the image (in a zip maybe, to keep any image host from potentially altering it), I could take a look at it.

    If not, I hope you have better luck next time. [​IMG]

    Hmmmm...

    I tried to recreate the problem but now nothing's happening.
