Directions for use: Follow these instructions in order to get the themes working on your M3 Simply or R4DS.
1. Unzip Skin using Winzip or a similar program.
2. After unziping, you will find a readme, five bitmap images, and a skin.ini. Fifth image is gbaframe.bmp.
3. To use this skin on your M3 Simply or R4DS, first select the four bitmaps and the skin.ini. (Excluding the gbaframe.bmp) Copy those directly to the _system_/themeXX folder on your MicroSD card.Â These four images will form the base skin and it's menus.
5. Copy the gbaframe.bmp directly to the /_system_ folder.
4. Once these images are copied, your M3 Simply or R4DS will be skinned.
Note: You can copy it to and of the theme folders. You can copy all four colors to different themexx numbers and then use the select button to switch between them.
Tip: You can change between the 12 themes by using the select button.
Note: To switch skins, follow this guide again by replace the images found on your card. Simple as that.
If you really wanted to, you could also mix and match various skins; go wild.
Been a long and agonizing break, eh? I think it has been nearly 4 months since I last posted a skin. I apologize for my absence; my life has just become very busy. Between pursuing various interests, going to school, having a job, and attempting to have a social life, I have a lot less free time, and most of that free time I do get is spent on games like Metroid Prime 3. Regardless, I am back with my Elemental skin series for the R4DS/M3 Simply. It has been made to look just like the Moonshell skin counterpart, and has countless hours of hard work and soul poured into it. This time around, I am attempting to redeem a top spot on NDSThemes; to do this, I am making it so all downloaded themes, even from forums, will be downloaded from the NDSThemes website. It would be helpful also if you would post your comments there as well. If I reach one of the top 5 themes on the site with this one, I will be extremely happy and grateful. That aside, I do hope you enjoy the skin, and hopefully you agree with me in thinking that it is the best possible theme for your R4DS/M3 Simply. Comments as always are strongly urged. Thanks!

I think it looks pretty nice. I like that the backgrounds are the same for their respective screens. It makes it look cooler during the transition from the main menu to the game menu which many skins lack unfortunately.

Yes, this is called color banding. This is because of the way the hardware takes the higher bit images and deals with their display. It is nothing that can be solved through the skin, but I did do my best to minimize it.
