    Special thanks to raulpica for making this topic a sticky!

    Okay, so I love skinning. I made two over twenty skins for the Homebrew Channel. So my question to you guys is what my next theme should be. Leave your feedback, and check out my other themes! ^_^ I will try to make a new theme every week. (No promises, as I have a life too! Lol.)

    Don't forget that you can also make your own!
    Check out my tutorial!

    -I plan on adding some new revisions for font usage and other tweaks. Keep a look out!

    To Download from FileTrip More Easily:

    1. Click the Download Button on the right-hand side.
    2. Choose "Manual Download."
    (This will give you the direct file without FileTrip's exe downloader.)

    Apparently, new updates made this not a thing anymore. Go figure!

    INSTRUCTIONS TO INSTALL THEMES:

    1. Extract contents of Rar file to the ROOT of your SD card. (Folder structure is already in place. Merge folders when asked.)
    2. Insert SD card into Wii and go to Homebrew Channel.
    3. Find the icon for desired theme, and launch like any other Homebrew. (You can change on the fly like this as well.)
    4. To revert to original theme, simply delete Homebrew Channel save data from Wii using the Memory Management screen.

    NEWEST THEME(S)
    Click on the Theme Name for a Filetrip download!

    Pokémon Sun -10/13/2016
    [​IMG]
    This theme turns your Homebrew Channel into an inferno powerhouse!

    Pokémon Moon -10/13/2016
    [​IMG]
    This theme covers your Homebrew Channel in mysterious shadows!

    Paper Mario Color Splash -10/11/2016
    [​IMG]
    As a gift for waiting for me to fix broken links, have a new theme! ^_^ It even has a custom font!

    Older themes:
    Themes by Release

    Yoshi's Wooly World -09/24/2015
    [​IMG]
    OMG! A new theme! This time for Yoshi's Wooly World!

    Earthbound -01/26/2014
    [​IMG]
    A special theme for Earthbound, the beloved SNES RPG. Available in all five menu "Flavors." Each is in its own folder, for easy swapping.

    Super Mario 3D World -01/26/2014
    [​IMG]
    Almost forgot I did this one! Featuring the official font from the official Nintendo site! (It was a pain to get/convert, so appreciate it!)

    Pikmin 3 -08/09/2013
    [​IMG]
    Everything gets a little smaller with this big theme. The Pikmin's latest outing looks great on the Homebrew Channel!

    Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon -04/17/2013
    [​IMG]
    Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon takes the stage in this theme. Scare up some fun as ghosts haunt your Homebrew Channel!

    Phoenix Wright -04/10/2013
    [​IMG]
    Take that! The Ace Attorney takes the Homebrew Channel stage to deliver sweet homebrew theme justice!

    Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate -04/03/2013
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate gets three ultimate background flavors! All are included in the same pack. (You guys can thank my wife for this. Lol.)

    Castlevania Lords of Shadow: Mirror of Fate -03/19/2013
    [​IMG]
    The first of my 3DS series. A rather simple theme, but the background looks awesome! Especially in widescreen.


    Hello Kitty -03/12/2013
    [​IMG]
    As requested, a theme for Hello Kitty. Actually had to do some minor editing to pay attention to character detail. Apparently, the bow has a very specific positioning, and it being wrong creates nerd-rage. Anyway, enjoy!

    MegaMan 10 -03/09/2013
    [​IMG]
    One of my personal bests. Had to recover this theme by extracting the Homebrew Channel save file. Nice to know that a theme is not lost if you delete the installation folder!

    Gir with a Cupcake -03/06/2013
    [​IMG]
    Gir has a cupcake. Also, Network Taco. My work is done here. *Rocket pants activated!* Woosh!

    Critter Crunch -02/28/2013
    [​IMG]
    A PSN Classic is now a Wii Homebrew Channel theme! Ripped the graphics myself from the install file. ^_^ May tweek the alignment of the buttons in the next version.

    Hell Yeah! Wrath of Dead Rabbit -12/14/2012
    [​IMG]
    Merry Early Christmas (kind of)! I'm back with a game that had amazing art and gameplay. One of my personal favorites now, both in themes and games in general. Enjoy! (This theme looks best if your app icons have transparencies. Solid rectangle icons look a little out of place, but we all got 'em.)

    The Gorillaz -11/4/2011
    [​IMG]
    A theme that isn't for a game! Wow! Two backgrounds with this one. Not sure how the text looks because I haven't had time to test it myself yet.

    Duck hunt -10/28/2011
    [​IMG]
    You can't really shoot the dog, but you can pop him!

    Donkey Kong Country -Oct. 21, 2011
    [​IMG]
    Features two backgrounds for SD and HD!

    DarkWii Purple -Oct. 21, 2011
    [​IMG]
    Background is from the Custom System Menu of the same name.

    Mega Man X -Oct. 21, 2011
    [​IMG]
    Its not very often I do a completely different button style, but it worked nicely here.

    Epic Mickey -Oct. 21, 2011
    [​IMG]
    I was playing Epic Mickey to fill the void before Kirby released. Finished it sooner than I had hoped, so I made this special!

    The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess -Oct. 14, 2011
    [​IMG]
    Link and Zelda grace this theme. Two backgrounds for SD and HD!

    Star Wars - Light Side -Oct. 14, 2011
    [​IMG]
    An old Star Wars theme that I finally fixed and finished, thanks to this thread!

    Star Wars - Dark Side -Oct. 14, 2011
    [​IMG]
    The Dark Side theme I finally finished after the Light Side one. Again, thanks to this thread.

    Super Mario 3D Land -Oct. 14, 2011
    [​IMG]
    The Boo and Goomba get Tanooki Tails when the USB Gecko and Network connect!

    Metroid -Oct. 7, 2011
    [​IMG]
    Samus guns for the HBC! Two different backgrounds for SD and HD!

    Super Mario -Oct. 7, 2011
    [​IMG]
    Super Mario graces the Homebrew Channel.

    Super Mario 64 -Oct. 7, 2011
    [​IMG]
    Based on Super Mario 64, using entirely graphics and art from the game.

    Kirby -Oct. 4, 2011
    *Fixed Oct. 5, 2011. Will stay as theme on HBC reload.*

    [​IMG]
    Based on Kirby's Return to Dreamland.

    Mega Man Zero -Oct. 4, 2011
    [​IMG]
    I don't know why ThemeShooter doesn't find the bubbles when I make the screenshot, but the bubbles are of the three Guardians.*fixed*
    -Also, this theme has two different backgrounds. One for SD (shown) and one for Widescreen featuring Craft!

    WODE Jukebox -Oct. 4, 2011
    [​IMG]
    I love how this one came out. Thanks to the WODE team for putting together some great graphics for their great product!

    An easy request for ya, Diddy did a dark purple theme for the wii, so a dark purple homebrew theme would be sweet. Especially if you did a dark purple homebrew channel. There is one going around but it is a light purple.

    Got a screenshot I can see? Can't seem to find anything about it on my own. If I can see it, I'll see what I can do.

    Okay, so is there a way to extract the files from a mym file? If so I can put this together eventually.

    MYM file = ZIP file. You can extract it with any archive manager (or if you use Windows you can just rename it to .ZIP and extract with the built in ZIP extractor. But you probably have a proper archive manager anyway, and it should be able to do it without having to rename).

    Any images are most likely in PNG format. However, many of the edits in themes are done with BRLYT edits (any colour changes for example), which you can use Benzin to convert to XMLYT files (basically just an XML document) - in these edits, you won't get images. You can compare the XMLYT to the original from the regular System Menu, and see what colours have been changed and from that work out what colours to use in your HBC theme, but it's quite a lot of hassle.

    EDIT: But for example, you would be able to get the images from the health screen and the background of the disc channel etc.

    Okay, so after a LONG and complicated amount of research, trial, and error, I got the background image out of that theme. >.< (Thanks greatfully to Show Mii Wads.) So I'll put that one on the back burner to be worked on eventually.

    Found that my Kirby theme won't stay the theme when set on the HBC, and I figured out why. The background images were too big, making the theme too big for the HBC save file to create properly. It reverts when this happens. Fixed it by flattening the pngs for the backgrounds. Will upload fixed version soon. (Look for an edit.)

    Already finished a Metroid theme. Will be releasing that, along side a couple others, on Friday. [​IMG]

    Its a lot easier than people think though. After I get a few of my own posted, I'll write up a tutorial.

    A Phoenix Wright theme would be nice, but that's probably not your thing.

    Dude, I LOVE Phoenix Wright, and so does my wife. Those were the first games I installed (after Pokemon Rumble) once I got my Wii hacked. [​IMG] I'll add it to the list. So many resources I can make a use of for that series. [​IMG]

    So far, my request list is, in no particular order:

    Mario 64
    Battletoads
    Mega Man Starforce (Another series I

    Starwars (episodes 4-6 only)
    Transformers ( Animation or old... a'hem action figure art)
    Commodore 64 (computer or games collage)
    Atari 2600 (console or games collage)
    Donkey Kong (on the Game & Watch, or a general Game & Watch theme)

    My 2 cents.

    I've been popping those damned bubbles all this time! >:(
