    Hello all.

    Right, I'll be straight to the point here, my beloved R4i still holds a few problems for me.

    My biggest problem is that I can't get r4i skins to work very well...

    I've found that (from looking at a few downloaded skins' file names & stuff) that the different pictures have to be renamed things like 'Tscreen' (For Top Screen on Main Menu), 'BottomInit' (For bottom screen with the icons on the main menu) & 'BottomScreen' (Which is on the bottom screen & sometimes top screen on the ROMs Menu)

    Sadly I'm missing the little images for the ticked boxes for cheats & buttons that're used for things like languages & other settings.

    So, is there someting I'm completely missing, or what?

    I'd like to point out that this is an R4i SDHC & that skins wont work at all without me changing the file names of the different pictures.

    SO my big questions.

    - How do I get the skins to work properly using all the images?

    - How do I get the other images to work on it, for the cheat icons etc.?

    To make my own skin, I took one of the pre-existing skin folders and copied it to my desktop, then re-numbered it (my R4i-SDHC had 6 default skin choices, so I named mine 7). By doing this, you have all the cheat box icons and such, because you took them from an already working skin. I went and found the images I wanted to use, saved them as bitmaps, made any changes I wanted to make with GIMP, and renamed them to replace the existing screens in the folder. Plug it in, go to the config menu, and pick your new skin.
