I found a few account file thingys and also I believe i found the home button menu but i tried changing a few icons and they didn't work with sdcafiine.

The one thing I cannot figure out for the life of me is how to change the colour of the backgrounds. It was the same with Mk8 and the menu background..... I cannot see what needs to be changed and how if it's not stored within a bflim! Any advice is severely appreciated!
So the background color is the part of the spreadsheet I labeled as 'sky background'. It's location is in Men2.pack under Common/Model/LoungeVR.szs Open that tree and enter gsys.bfres/textures, and then edit the bg02 file.

@MikaDubbz , a couple days ago, I redownloaded your themes from the op, and I replaced them on my hdds. they should be up to date now. I also installed the new version of your light blue theme on my system. this is a new pc, so I hadn't tried filezilla yet. with @Laf111 's ftp server, it uploaded both files at the same time perfectly, but I reduced simultaneous transfers to 1 file at a time afterwards. it's safer that way. anyway, I noticed one of the menu packs for light blue was about 8KBs larger, so I figured you had made some changes. what exactly did you change? I haven't noticed anything different, but I haven't really poked around. :)

The only difference from the first version is that the USB icon is blue and black instead of blue and white, and the swap display icon is blue and black themed instead of the old grey image it had been. Other than that, there are no other changes.

Switch Toolbox is the main program to explore and change files within the .pack files, photoshop is a tool I use in the process as well.

Anyone else having this issue where when swapping themes the "Swap Screens" button doesn't change colors? I've attempted to install multiple themes and everything changes except that button. Its currently stuck to the same color as my first installed dark blue theme

If I remember correctly, the button only changed when I restarted the console

sdcafiine displays correctly, but the stock menu still has the blue button on reboot
K, this is the Wii U being the Wii U then. I do not understand it for the life of me, but sometimes when you make changes via FTPiiU, they do not stick, despite sometimes the changes even showing up initially on the Wii U menu. My advice is to simply try again, and as soon as you finish the transfer, do not return to the Wii U menu, but instead turn off the Wii U and turn it back on. Don't know why, but I've had similar changes not stick, but every time I do it where I turn off the Wii U immediately after and then turn it back on, that method always sticks.

Ok so as I was posting what I said before, I unplugged my HDD from the back of the console and for some reason that fixed it? I don't know how the two correlated but I guess it had something to do with my HDD
