    Hi!

    I just tried to replace the "Wii-Disc" in the Disc Channel. For example I just made a minor change: I added "DVD-R".
    I used Photoshop CS3 to edit it. I saved it as 32-Bit BMP, but I didn't know how to save it as "32 bit bmp no alpha layers".
    After saving as BMP I saved it as TPL using Gallys TPL Converter. I selected "RGB5A3" and clicked on that grey color.

    Then I packed all back together and installed 0000045.app on my Wii, but now I got such a ugly frame surrounding the disc:

    I think it's because I weren't able to find out how to remove the alpha layers.
    Can someone please beat me to find that option?

    With a stick?

    Until you find that option?

    (uploaded as PNG for upload speed reasons)

    But may you mind telling me how you do it? I want to replace a few more images and don't want to ask you for every pic ;-)

    Awesome, thank you!
    Are there any special settings needed for the TGA?
    If not, I start modding right now [​IMG]

    Does saving as TGA from Photoshop CS3 work, too? That would make that way easier!

    Can't you just read the How to make your own CSM-Thread, and asking there, instead of creating a whole, new, f****** Thread, and messing up the Forum? This nerves me a bit... [​IMG]

    ADD THE DAMM TRANSPARENCY WITH TPL...it's well described in the Thread, so I don't think you've read the Thread well...

    Easy Steps:
    -Load the Image with TPL-App
    -Klick on the Color that should be transparent
    -Choose RGB5A3
    -Save as .tpl

    Oh, and I'm pretty shure, you'll mess up the System...Chances are around 80%...transparent Images never worked for me...

    I did that, but then I get that result you see on top... Ugly frame surrounding the Disc [​IMG]

    //EDIT: Do I have to check "Sin color alpha"?

    In CS3 it's after you pressed OK in the save dialogue:

    Using yours it now looks like this...

    [​IMG]

    No disc, huh? [​IMG]

    //EDIT:
    I tried again with TPL conv, but I get the same ugly frame around the disc... dammit!

    //EDIT:
    I found my solution!
    I copied the JPG from the Wii System Image Charts breakdown thread. They have the wrong transparent color.
    When I extract the Image myself it works flawlessly.
    Thanks for all your help!

    Gambia, The
    best result will be using TGA files with alpha channel in combination with TPL_EDIT_FE.
