no m8 the PAL iplsetting file is
1)saved in a different place in the base app than the NTSC copy
2)the files in the ash have a different file structure to the NTSC copy

Looks great!
I don't like the hexagonal shape of the channels, though. Only a small part of the channel preview is shown making it hard to tell which channel is which. Perhaps you could change the shape to a square? Otherwise, it looks good. I'll try it out on my Wii.

Holy SHIT! Now THIS is a theme!

That must have been a very hard to do theme, I remember when the first themes were being developed by the SoftMii team, I was a little involved in doing themes I know for sure that is a pain in the ass modding the files with hex programs and using benzin scripts just to do a little effects or fixing some little errors. Now I look at this theme and Im like wow!

Congrats to VGMStudios and all the persons that helped in the creation of this theme!

I agree the corners are cut too much on the channels. Also, I haven't tried it in widescreen, but if you can work out the widescreen issues and make the channel cropping a bit more subtle I will definitely use this.

Also, you can embed the youtube video in the original post with

Like it a lot mate. Nice different take on a theme instead of just random background pic of said topic, and some random buttons with graphics of said topic. This, is brilliant, the settings bits especially, just like in the original MP game, really really like this.

As the other guys say, sort out the highly cut corners of the channels, sort out the widescreen and SOLD, I would be happy to put this in place of Darkwii

Congratulations mate, shame it took 2 years though, no doubt you won't want to bother doing any more. lol

I'm with most other people. If you can change the shape of the channels, I would definitely try it! I personally think squares would be the best, maybe skewed a little bit, so it looks like they're wrapping around the visor. I don't know what's possible to do, or how easy it is to do what, so I wouldn't be too picky, but the hexagons just don't look right to me.

If you managed to get widescreen better supported it would be icing on the cake, but since you don't have a widescreen TV, it might be a little much to ask for.

Ill be fixing the Widescreen issue and the PAL issue and thats it.

Sorry but if you dont like the hexagons, you can change them yourself. The tools are out there and so are tuts. I just dont have time to change everything everyone wants. I cant please everyone.

That's perfectly understandable

If you don't my asking though, was the channel shape a simple thing, or one of the more complicated aspects of the mod?

I don't mind doing the legwork of hunting down the tools and tutorials, but it would be nice to know what I should look forward to.

If you change the shape you will have to find out also how to change the effect the channels make as well when you go over them with your cursor.
and I cant remember where that is. Diddy might be able to tell you. This is one of the reasons why I dont want to change them. Sorry.

I found out the problem with the Disk Channel.

Thememii ruins the theme. It changes the Disk Channel as well as the cursor.
Use MyMenu.exe to make your CSM's! Why does Thememii do this I do not know.
