    save them as .bmp files and put them in the _systems_ folder

    the thing is i put them in the system folder, that much i do know (i didn't have a system folder before that before i had just the "_DS_MENU.DAT" file) but it doesn't make a difference. there isn't any files in the system file under that name to replace. they just don't work in there.

    it is in the stickied FAQ [​IMG]

    once you upgrade to 1.06 all you do is replace the 4 .bmp images with those from your skin..

    hope that helps.

    you are in the R4 forum, you are looking for the M3 firmware, that is why my link didnt help you, perhaps post in the M3 forum.
