    ...meanwhile, I've editted the plugins.conf file a fair bit:

    This is the original one I posted...
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    EDIT2: ...and this is the file based on glmm1ll1ng's theme:

    Warning: Spoilers inside!



    I mostly cleaned out the extensions that certainly wouldn't be used (no need to check for nes-files if you want to check for virtual-files, to name just one) and made sure there was a default image used for each filter. It would be nice to have a full set of images for each emulator (or at least one of the company), but if nothing else, mednafen could be used (yes, I added a 96x96 'mednafen.png' to \ploader\plugins). :)



    (oh, and is anyone able to play Lynx, PC-engine, PC-FX, supergrafx or wonderswan with that mednafen-thing? I'm barely able to find roms, and the ones don't work thus far).


    EDIT:

    That would be nice. If you do, I'll edit my posted plugins.conf to match the names. :)
    (In fact, I was wondering to ask @JoostinOnline to make icons for the missing emulators...it's always better to have a default image with the proper system than a generic 'wiimednafen' one).

    Thanks Wever for fixing the conf file.
    Actually @mastershoes have already a beautiful icon set for wiiflow that has almost all the consoles pngs
    I don't think he'll mind if we edit and use some of his icons as a starting point to complete the post-loader set.
    Joostin is a great designer too and his help will be greatly appreciated
    :)

    The ones in the top-/bottombar are hardcoded in the boot.dol. It's contained in the 7z-file, I've provided. But stfour said, in future versions we will be able to place the custom icons separate from the boot.dol (no more recompiling needed). You can download the icons on the android developer website:
    http://developer.android.com/design/downloads/index.html
    Hope, this will help you.

    I gotta say they look very impressive, even when not using the rest of the theme. :D

    I editted my previous post to add a plugins.conf file to be used together with these pics. And with respect to AbdallahTerro's effort...I gotta say the sober look wins me over (easier to read, less obtrusive).

    Thanks. I have choosen other filenames, so they can coexist side by side with the ones from Abdallah Terro.

    Thank you very much for your icons gl1mml1ng! If I can ask for some more could you do icons for:

    Sega CD / Mega CD
    Mega Drive
    SG-1000
    TurboGrafX CD
    and the Famicom Disk System

    It would be great to have icons for those consoles :D

    I will have a look at this.

    I recognized, some plugins need an update. For Tantrics emulators are newer versions availible. And the new Genplus GX has Sega CD support.

    First I want to thanks gl1mml1ng for the beautiful set he made :)
    Second I had enough time today to finish my full set. I used Mastershoes's wiiflow source_menu set as a starting point and made the adjustments by placing the logos on top and making free space for the text at the bottom.
    Here's the preview made under Win7 (sorry couldn't make it on real Wii since I don't have roms for most emus :)):

    Please let me know if you need any further adjustments.
    plugin.conf
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    There are few extra icons and some duplicate ones to offer more options
    You need to edit the above posted plugin.conf file to change the rom path and plugin icon if needed

    You can edit your plugin.conf and change the rom path like this:
    005=WiiMednafen;wiimednafen.dol;/WiiMednafen/Genesis;nes,fds,nsf,unf,nez,unif,gen,iso,md,smc,fig,sfc,swc,agb,gba,bin,elf,mb,dmg,gb,gbc,cgb,sgb,vb,lnx,ngp,ngc,pce,ws,wsc,gg,7z,zip;wiimednafen (2).png
    or
    012=Genesis (Mednafen);wiimednafen.dol;/WiiMednafen/Genesis;gen,zip,iso,bin,smd;Genb.png

    the first bold text defines the rom path (SD or USB) the second bold text defines which image to use for that plugin
    It's difficult to say that there's a default path for roms since you can place your roms wherever you want, just make your own plugin.conf and make a backup of it for later in case you update postloader.

    Aha. Thank you! It works.
    But are there more differences, than the 'back to postloader' button?
