    i'm ok for the retroarch part,just add custom search and convert for icons,title id is randomly generated.
    I'm not sure about the way to convert other than retroarch nro in nsp but if you want to give it a try you're welcome!

    Not sure if anyone could answer this, but does anyone know if the custom NintendoLogo.png image has to fit the image size of the original? Or can I use larger images?
    I mean pixel size, not file size.

    Just did. You get a black screen instead and then it just jumps into the game. :(

    Ah well. Was hoping to use like individual console logos for each forwarder I make. The default size looked too small on the screen.

    I can't get the icons to work with a few SNES forwarders all I get is gray boxes with question marks. Anyone know what's the problem?

    Wrong icon size by the sounds of it. Are you sure its 256x256?

    Yeah I figured it out. So apparently the image needs to have a dpi of 72 in photoshop. And when you use different layers in photoshop make sure to rasterize them and merge them all before exporting to jpg. Did the trick for me.

    Has anyone by chance used an extended-ASCII character in a title and have it display properly on their switch?

    I tried using 'é' in a pokémon title and ended up with a weird title that would display the name correctly up until the 'é', and would then fill in the rest of the length with the name from one of my other titles.

    I see that 'é' is displaying fine in Goldleaf (what I installed it with) when looking at Pokémon Let's Go, but it displays "Pok☒mon ..." on the forwarder. I'm assuming it might be a hacbrewpack problem but I wanted to know if others have had success with using extended-ASCII characters before opening an issue.
