    Hello! it's my 6th thread, please correct me immediately if there's something wrong in this thread

    Sorry my english is terrible, i'll try my best to explain this tool :(

    {thank-list}
    @Robz8 : As TWiLight Menu++ creator. Thanks for allowing me to release this tool :bow:
    Aurelia Noumi : She made me think out of "X1 R5 G5 B5"
    @alexander1970 : this kind man always support me, whatever i want to make. I think most of you are been helped by him :grog:

    {detail}
    Title : SignaPic TWiT
    Type : Application
    Version : 0.1.0
    Status : Beta
    OS : Windows
    Arch. : All (x86 and x64)
    Size : 2196 KB (Normal) | 695 KB (Minified)

    {links}
    Note : these link will directly download the tool, this is not open source at this moment, hehe
    SignaPic TWiT (GBATemp)| SignaPic TWiT Minified (Github)

    {description}
    SignaPic TWiT is a simple tool to help you set your favorites image (JPG / BMP) as TWiLight Menu++ Top screen Wallpaper, with the following features :
    1. Multiple file processing
    2. Auto proportional resize for non 4:3 image
    3. Auto color detection for letterbox / pillarbox in Proportional resizer
    4. Update reminder if program detect a new update (obviously when internet connected)
    There's 2 version of SignaPic TWiT. Actually the differences only in size, the Minified is half smaller than the Normal one, if you download using metered connection, this Minified version is enough to help save it, but sometimes, Anti-virus often misunderstands, and detects this version as a virus (false-positive). Because the structure of the tool is no longer "neat".

    {known bugs}

    1. Image possibly is too bright so i still cant help to manage the brightest and darkest color, since it's still beta, there's still hope for stable update :)
    Please tell me when you find another bugs.
    If you will, for faster respond, you can mention me :)

    {tutorial : the simplest way}
    1. Run the application
    upload_2019-12-26_16-58-47.png

    2. Click "IMPORT" button, and select some images you want to use it as wallpaper on your TWiLight Menu++

    upload_2019-12-26_17-3-41.png

    3. Click "PROCEED" button and you can choose how the way images will be converted and saved, then click "EXPORT"
    Note : if you choose "Auto", better insert your SD Card first, then choose the SD Card drive letter

    upload_2019-12-26_17-6-22.png

    4. Wait for image(s) are being converted

    upload_2019-12-26_17-8-7.png

    4. The converted image will be weird, but for now, this is the best setting for TWiLight Menu++ to show the image normally

    upload_2019-12-26_17-11-54.png

    5. Now is the time to test the wallpaper

    upload_2019-12-26_17-13-9.png upload_2019-12-26_17-13-57.png

    5. Look better right? I'll keep working on this to get the best result :whip:

    for real, you just know that TWL uses bitmap for top screen? then just do it, i would be very happy and the TWL users too knowing that their TWL could handle a 32bit image formats :(, that's the dream

    i thought that Robz8 would do the same if its possible.

    I don't use that feature, as I don't use the DSi theme. I use the Acekard theme

    I'm not an "Delphi guy" but i can do it. Just put the code in the repository and I'll commit.
    I do recommend to use BSD, MIT or LGPL license, if you don't want to have problems with code.

    Does this still work? I mean using custom pictures, not the tool itself.
    For some reason I can't get it to show mine, even though I had a working .bmp before ><
