    Hey guys, finally changed to CFG seeing as GX has too many problems for my liking, especially the newer builds..

    CFG is much better in my opinion, but it seemed to really lack a good theme, so i thought id make one best i could.

    Well its still not finished, spent all night getting this far.. should be finished soon, the theme.txt might take me a bit, seeing as this is the first time i have ever made a theme for.. well, anything really.

    Anyway, hope you guys like it so far.

    Just checking, you do know about the Configurator, right? It lets you edit the options on a Windows PC and see how the theme will look on the Wii:

    There's also a very poorly grammatically titled thread for Cfg themes in case you haven't seen it.

    Finally, when you are done, make sure you put the theme up at wii.spiffy360.com as then people will be able to download the theme with the loader.

    That looks great!! As much as I love Cfg compatibility, its ugly as sin compared to usb loader gx.

    WOW! That should be the new default theme for CFG.
    Maybe you could contact the devolpers to integrate it, and maybe you could also design a new (matching) bootscreen?

    And could you also release the .psd for personal use when finished?

    Hey guys, still working on it, gonna take me longer than i expected, i busted my vacuum hose on my car and have been fiddling with it most of today, but it seems im going to have to take it into ford tomorrow as i cant locate the damn leak [​IMG]

    Anyways, been working on an alternative bootscreen, contemplating about which theme i should finish off first.. sorta got divided upon two different themes, "Simplex" and this new one.. anyways heres a bootscreen of the maybe new theme i got, if it doesnt merge or become something else..

    Your theme looks nice, but I find the bootscreen ugly as sin.

    I'll definitely be trying your theme out though, especially if you release a "dark" version (where the grey to white gradient part is a lot darker shade of grey).

    Wow, I'm a big fan of Cfg ant this theme is very nice, maybe you can adjust the background a little. The console looks great by the way. Good luck!

    Oh, I have another problem: I don't have a wide screen TV and all my themes for Cfg show a black bar at the bottom in console view like the picture is stretch. Does anyone know how do I solve this for the console view? Thank you!

    I don't see really the need for a new Topic (though we had much worse topics here [​IMG]), I'll throw my opinion in anyways: Well, that's probably most of the sleekest themes I've ever seen (for all USB-Loaders). Really, great work, I love it [​IMG]. Though, I don't like the GUI/Selection-Background. If you would just remove the console, it would be a perfect BG, IMO.

    Btw: I would faint is this could be done for WiiFlow xD.

    Hey guys, not sure if im gonna get this finished anytime soon, if anyone wants to have a crack at finishing them off im uploading the source .PSD files here, im so over the theme.txt settings and the bad resolution of my TV that it has put me off & theres too much playing around with font sizing and getting contrast right for older CRT screens... i will probably get it finished eventually, maybe by next week or so [​IMG] im too much of a perfectionist.. that and exams next 2 weeks


    ANyways, feel free anyone to pick up where i left off, maybe pepxl?
    Been using his Deviant Art theme, its what got me modding my own [​IMG]

    ANyways good luck to ya.

    Here are the Source Files, psd.

    bump

    Been thinking about getting that splash screen animated..
    What programs are you guys using or recommend for the job? Autodesk or just an Adobe app?
