    Great to hear that a patch was made with the theme shop fix, and by the original author nonetheless! I'll try this out and update my guide to 3DS Themes with a guide for HTT Soon™!

    pretty interesting workaround... seems weird the limit is 10, but cool.

    Yeah, that's quite sad that there's a limit, I was also hoping that maybe it'll be lifted by one of HOME Menu updates.
    I'm not sure if it's worth trying this thing with DLC for other games then, I doubt they support more than 1.
    There actually is one Japanese app, called "Dokodemo Honya-San", that seem to support multiple variations (much more than 10), which is a manga shop/viewer, so it's expected for it to have lots of DLC.

    Yeah, that one too, forgot about it.
    I won't be surprised if there are more Jap apps like this.
    We're getting off topic here, aren't we? :P

    Nice!
    Too bad it won't help to avoid that stupid 100 themes limit, but it sure may help to organize themes. :)
    Like, for example, create one pack with video games themes, another with anime themes, and so on.

    mostly I use it to have the themes I use always in one pack and the themes I wanna test in other, so I can delete the last one and do not affect the other package

    I'd like to report a bug. When non-ASCII characters are used in the theme's name, the entire name gets cut out.

    Are you sure that your name.txt is saved as UTF-8?
    The non-ASCII chars won't be displayed properly in HTT's UI (should be fixed in the next version) but the names will look normal when installed:

    No, the name.txt was saved as ANSI. Good catch.

    I mean, the name.txt was generated by the application itself, so I figured it was fine...

    If was saved by the Theme Checker, it is UTF-8 withou BOM, so if you edit it later, you must set it to UTF-8.

    Yay! The wait is over. Thank you so much, @Chelsea_Fantasy and @redunka! Seems like in the end you kept your word and released it before 2018.
