    Here's some of the stuff I posted on ndsthemes about it:
    Going for a 1950s in the 2050s feel like the Giant Robo Animation had for me.

    And about me:
    I used to make themes for the r4/m3 simply, got bored with it. Started making Moonshell themes.
    Samples:1 and 2
    Now I'm onto M3 Sakura themes, which share a lot in common with Moonshell themes. I recently put out my first Sakura theme which I made while figuring out the system, which hasn't been too well recieved as of yet. I do plan on in future releases including the images outside of the .skn format, as it doesn't really feel complete without them.

    Edit: these aren't the final versions, I had to pull some trickery to get the tvs to work right.

    Launcher images:
    both of these layer over this image:

    Homebrew items:

    NDS items:

    Top image is St. Abel, which was built over the ruins of the bottom image, which is the test site at Bashitarlle. Had source images from both time periods from a point when a character is driving up to St. Abel, but the mountains didn't match up nearly as well as I wanted them to. Redrew the Bashitarlle mountains with shapes and cut out the images so they'd match up. Also removed color from the st. abel image and resized it to make the similarities more apparent.

    Very nice! This is going to be great!

    But you should have the background like this,

    So it looks like this,

    I'm going to make an average of the two scenes and use it to finish off that part, I recently loaded it up and took note of where the image ends like your samples do.

    Now with an effort to bring green back as a main color Franken Von Vogler and Emmanuel Von Vogler overlaid on the symbol of their legacy, the Eye of Vogler. This is both the infopane and the underlying BGtop together.

    edit: I've toned down the diffused light on the size/created/modified in the actual version.
    editedit: looks like aces on here, looks like utter crap on card. Changed.

    mmmkay, I uploaded what I've got so far so if you really want to take a look it's there.

    Still need to do many things. Icons, slides, color management, the m3 cheat menu and loading rom screens, screen saver light and dark, and the text and movie sections as well. Still messing around with the launcher top, I think it looked like sheit because I used gradients in the .png.

    This theme hasn't been dropped, I've been busy getting my paladin on WoW to the point where the new talents will make him better instead of worse.

    Still trying to think of something more interesting for the text view, as I'm going to be using it a lot :/

    I skinned them myself, but I never had chance to actually see them on my NDS....I don't know..

    I'm guessing when you try messing with saves.....but, I really don't know what do you have to do, to get those screens..
