    Hello fellas,

    When I am downloading some random skins for the R4DS there is no theme.ini file located in the rar... mostly its an thumbs.db.
    when I put the skin with the thumbs.db in my system map the skin doesnt change ?
    what should I do to get this working..

    thanks in advance.

    The theme.ini is just for custom colors on menu text / browsing text / scrollbar color etc.
    Thumbs.db is a generated windows file for the pictures in that folder. So whenever you have thumbs preview activated in ex. explorer. The preview pics will load faster. So the thumbs.db is unrelated to all.

    Just copy the four(5 if a customized gba screen is found) .bmp to the system folder in your r4. If you currently don't have the default theme.ini file. Then just take the one from whetever version of the updates you've downloaded and put it there.

    You can swap your skins pressing select on the "GAME_MEDIA_SLOT2" screen [​IMG]
