I can't seem to get my head around the tutorials regarding this, I am trying to load themes using extdatatool on Gateway.

I have dev menu installed, a body_LZ.bin ready to go and HomeMenu_ExtDataTool.cia(I'm not sure if this is the right thing). I just need a step by step and what to do now.

Any help will be appreciated!

When you install the custom theme, you're supposed to go back to the home menu then restart the 3DS and boot into emunand again as far as I know.

But have you tried Custom Home Menu Manager? It's easier to use, and all you have to do is press A on the theme you want, then exit the app and hold the power button down briefly until the grey screen appears, then press home.

It sounds like a hassle, I randomly got it working before but forgot the steps.
Anyway
I would rather use CHMM but I thought there was no gateway compatiability because ninj isn't supported in 9.5, could you tell me how to install CHMM?
Thanks. :lol:


Edit : oh wow there's a .cia in the CHMM.rar

Thanks for putting me on this direction, I think I can figure it out from here!

Yep no prob. Just get a "Themes" folder on your SD card and in it, folders that have a body_LZ.bin file. The folders can be named anything and you can include a "preview.png" so that you can see it as you cycle through the themes.

    @Psionic Roshambo, The Wii U gamepads are tied to the console's region, so its impossible to find a cheap gamepad that supports your model.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Unless you modify your system, of course, and remove the region check.

    @Xdqwerty can we discuss chrono trigger
  • S @ salazarcosplay:
    @Xdqwerty I like how the game had the middle ages 1000AD, the dark ages 600AD.It was great seeing the post robot apocalypse 2300 like Terminator and enter the matrix. some of mad max and fallout. 2300ad though it could had used more elements instead of just a generic ai uprising. It was a great idea for their judgement day to be 1999 Y2K.

    -great additions if they would have made an expansion or dlc in my opinion would be finding out humans trapped in a matrix -

    a follower having a cyborg character living tissue over metal endoskelleton like terminator, and the synths from fallout
  • S @ salazarcosplay:
    4After Zeal fell it would have been good to see more ancient eras. Perhaps Sumeria based in one area, then Egypt based in another area, Greek based in another area, then roman based in another area before the middle ages.---------

    ----between 1000ad and 1999 is a big gap they should have had the age of revolution like the american and French Revolution

    then the cowboyy era in one area of map and the Industrial revolution/age of enlightmentthen a ww1 and ww2 and a cold war era
  • S @ salazarcosplay:
    they could have added 75,000 bc like assassins creed. zeal was already establish in 12, 000 bc , soething before the kindom rose
