    I used a tool called Usenti. It basically does everything I need a GBA graphics editor/converter to do.

    I tried to play some wonder swan / color and they are loading up with the byte count and after that it just have a black screen, does anyone else have this issue?

    Also the npc doesn't have an icon for the emulator either.

    The wonderswan emulator was never in any playable state during the time it was being developed by FluBBa. WonderSwan games "work" but they are slow as heck and have no sound.

    The only thing I have gotten to remotely work is Sebastian Mihai's "Car" demo.

    Thanks for the update <3 the new font looks nice
    I wonder if it is possible to improve cheat funktion a litle by that i mean,
    we only can choose cheats before a game and boot it with those
    and ingame we can only do cheat on or off,
    would love to have a possibillity to like deactivate a single cheat ingame
    like wenn pressing L + R + Start maybe we can get another option,
    wich brings up the menu were we can choose what to activate before the game,
    thank you very much sir for all ur work with this <3

    I've explained this in the past and I'll explain it as many times as I need to

    Have options for individual cheats would be unlikely as storing data for individual cheats would affect compatability with games, and I just don't want that to happen. Some cheats are really long and I think it's more work than it's really worth.

    @Sterophonick

    Got to agree with @linkinworm I think the design needs looking at as currently it's rather dated looking I'm afraid. Your theme is amazing so hopefully you'll not be offended but I think you need some help on the graphic design side of things. Of course good design is subjective but if your in anyway open to ideas I'd say this: Especially with the limitations of the GBA resolution - for it to look modern and clean - you want to lose all those rounded effects, any shadow or shading effects and go for solid and single-colour icon shapes. Then for highlighted text/icons use one high contrast/non-clashing accent colour. I'd start with the theme @linkinworm attached called 'clean' which is by far the best I've seen yet - and build on that with the simple but effective colour schemes used on the Nintendo Switch's Light and Dark themes. Some people may find it boring - fine, some people will always want to have a messy theme based on their favourite band – but most people prefer UI/UX design to be minimal and clean these days so it doesn't interfere with their content. Your san-serif font is nice btw.

    I also have some idea's for how I'd do the startup screen - using a nice clean Omega symbol and nice text to make an unofficially Logo - again not dissimilar to the Switch Logo/any other . I wish I understood better how to change a ezkernel.bin and I could have a go myself and show you it to see what you think, if you were up for it?

    Thanks for the feedback! When I get around to it, I'll, make some mockups of a cleaner skin and see what you think!

    Cool, thanks for being open to ideas, and thank you for your time on this theme in general.

    That would just take up too much time for a single compilation. I'd rather only have two.

    Yes, good design is definitely subjective, especially in relation to this theme.
    I don't agree with the criticisms made to this Simplelight theme. I personally like the design and how differentiates itself from the stock theme, which I dislike, and WHY I chose this theme in the first place. The current theme looks very clean and well-made to me!
    I didn't think it could get any better, to be perfectly honest. I also didn't notice any shading on the dark theme, especially due to the limited resolution and screen size of the GBA (I have a backlit SP), and the color usage. I like the current colors on the dark theme specifically (I remember asking for one before there was a dark theme several months back, and Sterophonick made a great dark theme soon after!), though I do like black and dark red together personally as color combinations.
    Sterophonick has showed me the new icons he wants to add and I definitely want them to be added to a new version for sure, they are looking good! You should share them here when you can, Sterophonick. I like the changes, and I know you're doing some tweaking.
    If there was to be a new startup screen, my favorite idea would be something like this below:
    This is just my opinion, I wanted to make it clear that there were other design perspectives on this thread! :)
    Good day to everyone!

    Maybe it still looks a bit dated. What I would suggest is to have no squares around the icons. Have a single colored "banner", for example nintendo Red, where the icons are and then have flat White icons which highlight when you select the menu. The text area I would make Grey. I can make a mockup to show you what I mean.

    This is a very quick mockup, but I mean something like this? The text area is black now but you can always change it.

    I'll be experimenting with designs that I like and don't like and see what looks best to me. Thanks for the idea.
