    Alright so I've been searching around and so far, I cannot find the answers I'm looking for.

    I've created my Theme, now I don't know where to go from here what to save it as etc. I'm a lone kid lost in the dark woods on this one.

    I would appreciate a step by step, please don't link me anywhere I've tried looking in place you'll probably link me to.

    Thank you in advance.

    Your site would not help him, his looking for how to install themes, not for theme files.
    ...
    After a little digging on your site, I take back everything, the only discussion in your forum is about this very issue :P

    RuneFang, you need to save your theme as two files, body_LZ.bin (contains the graphical info) and bgm.bcstm (contains audio info). As to how to save them in that format, I don't know, sorry :/

    Once that is done, check this thread : https://gbatemp.net/threads/chmm-custom-homemenu-manager.379349/
    It is the thread of a homebrew program that will install your custom themes.

    Good luck, I hope this covered everything you needed :yaynds:

    Alright so I have the stuff, I have the two saved (It's actually just saving them as what they're named so It'll be body_LZ.bin etc.) and I followed along, it says installing or whatever, then the installing thing goes away and then it's blank or whatever, and then I click start to cancel and then it's not in my theme list.

    Edit: So oddly enough, I reset my gateway and the theme had loaded up for whatever reason, it was already there so thanks for all your help guys.

    It shouldn't be in your home menu theme list, it should just be the theme your home menu appears in.

    Tell me, hen you save them, are the file extentions matching ? You have a .bin and a .bcstm file, right ?
