    Try putting the gbaframe.bmp in the UI folder you are using.

    I am also having trouble getting gba frames to work. I have put them in lots of different folders and still none work. I am using wood r4 on m3 simply.

    place gbaframe.bmp in other skin directory. it must be 256x192 pixel size and 16 bit per pixel.

    the gbaframe from the gbatemp skin works when moved to any other skin. But I want a new frame. I tried all the frames from herehttp://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=47996

    I tried them as png and bmp files and still not working?

    I think it is the 16 bit per pixel which is stumping me. The files I have all have 24 bit. How do I adjust these, if possible?

    Use GIMP or photoshop and save as 16bit.
