    -= R4ToCyclo Theme Converter =-
    Latest Version: 0.1b


    Overview
    I was trying to get my favorite R4 skin converted to my Cyclo, but then I thought:
    "Why not make a convertor for it?". I searched the forum of course, but all converters I know of were down.
    So I decided to make my own one and share it with the community!
    Hope you guys enjoy it!

    Known Bugs
    - Sometimes, it will not display the Cyclo Settings text correctly due color settings [fixed partially in 0.1b]
    - No hover effects for the menu buttons due limitations.

    Instructions:
    (1) Extract the R4 skin to the 'input' folder in the directory where r4tocyclo.exe is located.
    (2) Fire up the converter and press '1' following by enter.
    (3) Press any key.
    (4) Conversion complete! The Cyclo skin is in the 'output' folder.

    Thanks! It's about time I change the skin I have on my CycloDS. Since most of the skins made are for the R4/Simply, this tool should come handy ^^
