Basically, I am looking for a Wii Pirate theme that many others are looking for too.
The theme has only one video that I can find which you can watch below:

I found a post on reddit where someone was looking for the same theme, yet they had no luck as all that was sent to them was the Wii Community Creations thread (WHICH ONLY HAS THE BLACK AND WHITE PIRATE VERSION BUT WITH NO SKULLS IN EMPTY CHANNELS!!!!) - Here
If anyone has this exact theme, please let me know. That theme looks awesome and I would pay money to get my hands on it.

Anyway, I found the guys Reddit account but it has been inactive for 7 years... I will keep searching, but most likely it will all lead to a dead end.

btw, check your pms, i heard you say something about your wiiware?
Basically, I have found several things linked to the guy. He is commonly known as PoptartWii. But I found several people that used to know him through old wii BO1 trickshot groups. I found one guy who is still active on twitter and I messaged him to hopefully get into contact with PoptartWii.
Edit: It also turns out that they also have an account here; Link
But once again they were last seen in 2011. In fact, it seems the last mentions of the guy being active was back in 2014

pirate channel: https://gbatemp.net/attachments/pirate-channel-forwarder-for-hbc-v1-1-2-pira-rar.138247/ (it's outdated version though, but you might be able to patch it for the new HBC location).
for pirate theme, it'll be tricky to get it, it's really limited edition, but you can make something alike yourself with some efford.
do know that these wii themes used to be dangerous, since those could brick your wii.
you've got the following tools to use:
keep in mind messing with the basics of your wii system is dangerous.

Maybe better should ask our Friend @XFlak if this is really "safe".....:unsure:
it's most certainly not safe... i've done one wii with succes, a custom pirate mod, going the full monty... i've sold that one... killed another one following the excact same process, both wore the same system menu (4.3e), and both already working fully patched. yes i got it repaired by using priiloader and original system menu wad file... still, it's not safe...

I’m willing to take the risk. I own 2 Wii’s for this exact reason

there are a few though that come close, and you can edit those (the 3d moveng skulls are the missing part, and the dark pirate can be used maibe?
i can't find the excact original one, but maybe someone can fork thier own version...

Exactly. All I need is the 3D skulls.

    i guess thats why they never bothered suing the translation team

    it would be bad PR to sue a translation team if your not localllizing the game yourself

  • wolffangalchemist @ wolffangalchemist:
    all i can say is this will more than likely make Nintendo more lawsuit happy than ever before. till someone actually stand firm against them and takes it to court. i know if the yuzu devs sat up a gofundme for the legal fees it could have been feasible too take them
    on.
  • PrincessLillie @ PrincessLillie:
    Oh I have no doubt that Yuzu devs had the money, their Patreon was bringing in almost $30,000/month
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    They just paid them 2.4mill of course they could afford a legal battle but why they probably had more dirt and caved the public doesn't know about.
  • PrincessLillie @ PrincessLillie:
    I've heard rumors that Yuzu devs had a private stash of early Switch dumps they shared among themselves, in order to fix bugs in the emulator early
    That could definitely have complicated things
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Imho that letter went out just to get communities to feel sorry for them and it worked out well imagine 30k a month in your pockets over an emulator
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Good on them if they actually paid the devs with it just doesn't really add up
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Geez I'm tired of hearing about it already, lol k3nv2

    I want the dog also

    Deals off then, dog stays with me
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    I didn't say which one
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Its crazy the price of some game assets for making games, makes me wanna start making some and selling them myself. I've made my own for games I've made, just never looked at what people were getting for them online.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Make a early beta of the switch 2 as a emulator keep it until Nintendo announces the next version register the domain add ransom ware per every download

    K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2: Awesome deal pissed I spent 80 on this last year...
