    I've done a quick custom skin for the RTS menu on R4i RTS cards, and figured I should share.

    It replaces the default horrible yellow text on black background with a style made from pieces of preinstalled themes.

    Note: Does not automatically match your selected theme! You must do this manually!

    Things to be aware of that I have no control over:
    - Blank top screen
    - Black square in top left of bottom screen (especially noticeable in lighter themes)
    - No way to automatically match the set theme

    So far I've only done the black theme but I'll work on the others in the next few days

    To use:
    Download the ZIP file for the theme you want, and copy the __rpg folder to the root of your microSD. It should merge the files in and ask to overwrite two files already in there. Alternatively, copy the two files from inside the ZIP's __rpg folder into your microSD's __rpg folder to overwrite the existing files.

    I believe those cards support the Wood R4 firmware, which is what you would know as the R4i menu. But if you mean the RTS (Real-time save) menu, that will only work on cards which are branded with the RTS mark.
    PS: These menus only replace the default ugly images on the RTS screen with a kind of fake menu. They aren't actual menus or themes.

    I just noticed there seems to be some strange dithering going on in the black themed menu, probably due to my conversion process. I'll work on a fix now.

    Unfortunately that kernel seems to use hard-coded text rendering for its RTS menu, so it's impossible to edit it.
    My skins only take advantage of the fact that the R4i RTS uses image files for its RTS menu.

    Skins for r4ids and zelda preinstalled themes are now up!
    That's those done, but I'm open for requests for other themes.
