    Ok, I downloaded it and dragged "lmp-ng-1.02.nds" into my microsd card. The program does work, but it shows in my ds as "DS Program File" and a ds icon. Why is that? other programs I got like Beup nds file shows as "Beup Live 0.7" and also shows the correct icon.

    Why is that? can I get to show the real name and icon?


    I was asked to ask the devloper, but i never get a response. Cant this file be edited and then add a internal name and icon?

    Use DSBuff or RomeR to change them.

    Ok I did open it. But one problem is the Icon. Whenever I choose a 32x32 image it then always said this after I try to save it

    I tried going in Photoshop CS3>Mode>Indexed Colors and choose these settings

    Palette: Local (Perceptual)
    Colors: 16
    Forced: None

    Then I saved it and tried gif, png, and bmp but I still get same error

    Help please >_

    I just tried to follow these steps using GIMP software, and it worked [​IMG]. I changed the logo of some homebrew app. Maybe it has to do something with the settings on your system, haddad?
    Try to do this on another pc, maybe it'll work [​IMG]

    It needs to be 32x32 and I know how to do that, but how do I make it 16-color?
