    if thats the case extract the mym with winrar
    use lz77mii as some of the arc files are commpressed
    use szs modifier to swap the pics
    then pack back to a mym with winrar

    I know this is a really old post but I cloud not find an other way to contact you with this question :)

    I am trying to make my own Wii theme or edit your guys DarkWii Pink theme. I have tried the steps above but they didn't seem to work I have also looked all over online and can't seam to find any thing two :( The lz77mii won't decompress any of the files in the .mym I extracted using WinRAR and the szs modifier won't open any of the files two! :( Is there newer software or steps I have to take to edit themes or am I doing something wrong? Any Help Is Greatly Appreciated Thx! :D - djcjf

    If your trying to edit the darkwii theme there is no way around decompressing the files if you open the arc files in notepad or a hex editor and it starts with LZ77 it must be decompressed before you can edit the contents of the arc
    your sure you are trying to decompress and not compress in lz77mii
    i do not know of any other tools for decompressing the files

    if you are wanting to make a theme from scratch you could try using the Theme Brlyt Editor in my sig there is also a link to a theme base pack that i made
    i have just updated the links in the thread

    if you downloaded the mym from my theme release thread (in my sig) after extracting the mym you should have 2 folders and 2 files
    1 folder called ash this contains the compressed arc files
    1 folder called tpl this contains a single tpl image file
    a brlyt file called it_Has_a.brlyt
    and the mym.ini file that tells thememii how to make the theme

    Thank you for all the help and getting me started with making and editing custom Wii themes! :D

    I think I am going to try making my own theme but I might still edit the DarkWii pink theme :) Turns out it was CrossOver giving me grief decompressing the arc files with lz77mii :wacko: It gives me a error saying I need to configure Microsoft.NET Framework 2.0 to give lz77mii permission to decompress and compress files sadly I don't think I can fix this in CrossOver so I am going to need to run it in real windows or try to run it in plane old Wine:teach: Thanks again for all the help! :D - djcjf
