    hello guys. I've yesterday bought a m3 but i fail at making the skins work, can someone explain that to me??
    i made the _system_ map and in the map i made the themes map. In that map i made a lot of maps with skins in it but how do i load those on my ds menu's? If i click them they show me the picture but i can't find an option to chose them for my menu's.

    There should be 12 Theme folders in the either the _system_ folder or the _system_/themes folder (I dont recall which off the top of my head) listed as theme01, theme02, theme03 and so on. Put each skin along with their respective theme.ini files in each folder. You need to make sure you have at least firmware 1.03 although for other reasons I recommend getting the latest 1.07. Be aware that older themes that have not been updated may not have the theme.ini file, which is not a huge concern as it just affects the text color.
