Well, I have the solution for the icons, open them in photoshop, go to file export as, leave everything as in the image below and that's it, you won't have a problem with any icon.

EddCase, Thank you very much for the app, one of the things that is necessary is to delete the icon file "icon_AmericanEnglish.dat" in the control folder at the end, otherwise it works perfect for me when I finish.

Certainly I'll add that but it shouldn't cause any issues as it will overwrite that file every time you click the Create Forwarder button..

I suppose I should really return the NintendoLogo.png, nextArgv, nextNroPath to defaults.. and for completeness delete hacbrewpack_backup directory and the icon_AmericanEnglish.dat

I'll add that in the next version

New Version 0.4 added, I think everything is working as intended now. I have got a couple of ideas on how to improve things if you've looked at the AU3 script you can probably work out what I'll be attempting to add, but as I stated in the original post I'm not the best at this so can't promise anything

Opps, I must have forgotten about the Custom prod.keys browse menu I'll add it to the list when I get the chance (for now just copy your prod.keys into the same directory as menu.exe... All this is, is a gui for the tools provided by @mpham which is based on hacbrewpack by @The-4n
so follow their instructions for getting the icon file correct it should be a 256 x 256 jpg/jpeg without any exif data so open your icon in paint save it as a bmp then open the bmp and save it out as a jpg/jpeg
If you can provide me with the details on how to set the version number I can certainly try and add it but I can't promise anything. Alternatively I've posted my AutoIT script file in the original post feel free to modify it, it would be nice to get a credit in anything you make of it though

On the subject of file size mine varies depending on the Logo and Icon images I use, but a standard working forwarder for me is around 330kb
Thank you. All is working now.

A question:
I would like to do a forwarder for a game that runs on the scummvm app. Not the retroarch scummvm, but standalone scummvm.
I tried making a forwarder by ticking the "retroarch forwader" and then instead of writing core path to the retroarch version of scummvm, I wrote the path to the standalone scummvm version.
Didnt work.
Do you know any way of doing this?
Thanks:)

New Feature incoming, it will resize and set your Logo and Icon images to the correct size and format, should work with jpg/jpeg, png, bmp, gif and tif files no need to convert to the correct format or size before hand

Yay! If you can make it connect to a scraper system, that would be bad ass;)
But what if the image is the wrong aspect ratio? Say 400x200. Will it just automatically crop to center of image and resize?

Thanks for all the work you do:)

It just does a resize to 256 x 256 and dumps it out as TempIcon.jpg then does the file moves on that so if you provide it with a weird ratio it'll look odd :-D same with the Logo to TempLogo.png just to 160 x 40

The scraper system whilst a nice idea is way beyond the scope of this gui for me, but as always I'll post the script file so feel free to add that feature.

I've got the resize working in my test but I've got a really bad headache so might not get everything hooked up and posted today


Edit:
Didn't take as long as I thought, I'm uploading the version 0.5 now, it's had little testing but it works for me I've attached an extreme example of what'll happen so you still need to get images close to the correct ratio so they don't look weird

If your not certain please build it yourself from the script

I have run it through

VirusTotal

Check the link for the report

I've also Submitted it to Microsoft I'll update the main post if they come back to me.

On a side note it seems that Compiled executables made with Autoit get a lot of false positives I suppose this is just another reason why I should learn a proper programming language.
