    Hi all,
    I would like to have instead of the haxchi logo a "homebrew launcher" logo, and for the tv & gamepad screen a description which key is a shortcut for what (e.g. a=fw.img, b=loadiine, x=ftpiiu, y=hbas,...).

    I tried to create the tga files with GIMP and paint.net but failed with both of them. Is there a freeware wich works, or must the files be created with photoshop?

    Otherwise, is there a sharing-thread for different .tga files, which other users have made?

    Thanks, Edizius

    Hi, do you mind posting your attempts at creating tga files?

    So, open a premade .tga with paint.net, on the save options, save it as tga, it will open you a prompt.
    Select 24 bits and uncheck compression,
    Then open the image with an Hex editor (HxD for example) and add these at the end:
    00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 54 52 55 45 56 49 53 49 4F 4E 2D 58 46 49 4C 45 2E 00 00 00 00 00

    Thx, worked as you have described. I have not been adding the hex-string.
