    creating skins isn't that difficult.
    download the official m3sakura, since it comes with skin making tools.
    edit the included skin images
    and run the make-skin program

    They're both in the current release. You just need to press Y to access options. However, they haven't been translated (see the first post) and you will need to power cycle your DS when you're done setting them.

    I'm not sure if those messages are really inside the setupnds.ext or setupgba.ext .... i've searched trough them completely, and i cant find those specific parts in there. i also searched with a tool for all of these strings you provided that are not translated till yet, and they are not inside any of the files (at least not in one piece).

    i'm pretty sure that i could probably edit those files without damaging them, but i really need to find out where exactly the menu text is written in.

    The fact that nobody knows where is it actually placed,is the main reason why it's not translated yet..Somone over here might help you with that..
    I don't have skills for it, but few people over here, knows how to hexedit, and stuff like that really well..

    hehe what encoding did you use?
    if you don't use the right encoding(shift-jis i think) it doesn't display the text properly.

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    The messages are definitely in those files...I just found them as well:

    1. Rename "setupnds.ext" to "setupnds.ext.txt."
    2. Right-click the file and click "Open With," then choose Firefox. You'll end up with garbled text.
    3. In the top menu of the browser, click View>Character Encoding>Japanese (Shift_JIS). If you don't already have "Japanese (Shift_JIS)" as an option on your encoding list, try View>Character Encoding>More Encodings>East Asian.
    4. Most of the text will still be garbled, but now you'll be able to do a search for the text.

    You can do the same thing for "setupgba.ext." Hope this helps you help us!

    with the wallpapers.
    i found out, apparently the gap between the screens isn't 96 pixels, might be 64(need to check first)
    also a nice feature, m3sakura has 2 wallpaper using screens.
    the "tools/recently used" screen, and the browser screen.
    if you use a wallpaper with a width of 512 or higher it will do the following:
    the filebrowser screen will use the 1st 256 pixels in width as wallpaper, and the tools screen uses pixels 257-512

    I've tested it with my wallpapers, and I'm sure it's 96 pixels.

    I've gotten that error when I was making this file "Launch_Tab1_NDS". All the bitmaps are 256 pixels wide but that one is only 240 pixels wide.
    Just make sure all your picture are the same pixels as the original and you should be all set, at least it was in my case.

    Did you use photoshop? If you did save the files for os and not for windows.

    Some news about the release: the guy in charge of the spanish translation (I mean the official one) has received today the english text to translate (he received the text 2 months ago but looks like they've lost/discarded it). So it shouldn't be long before it's released [​IMG]

    P.S. He says that the text looks a bit weird, as if it weren't a flashcart OS but more of a utility for card formatting etc [​IMG]

    When and where did you get this info from?

    Everyone seems to get official info and i never do.... do you have to sign up to something like a newsletter?

    nagaroth: that's messages.(insert language code number here)
    it contains mostly error messages in case the built-in disk checker finds an error in the filesystem.
