    Inside _system_ folder create a folder with this name: themes
    then, inside the themes folder, create folders like this:
    theme01
    theme02
    .
    .
    .
    .
    theme12

    R4DS can hold up to 12 themes, no more, can be less.

    Each folder represents the theme number, so pictures in theme01 folder will be theme01, in theme02 folder becomes theme02, and so on

    Place the 4 pictures (must be in bitmap format, no other format supported) in corresponding folder. Make sure they are named as follow:
    BCKGRD_1.BMP for topscreen background while selecting games
    BCKGRD_2.BMP for touchscreen background image while selecting games
    ICONS.BMP for main menu icons, including the background too
    LOGO.BMP for topscreen image in main menu
    THEME.INI for the theme itself initialization. Without this the theme will be screwed, since it contains the font color, version number, author, etc.

    try it, it should work, since I'm looking at my R4DS theme folder while typing this for you.

    P.S.: dare I say you've just bought your R4DS? My nephew just bought one and it doesn't contain any custom theme too

    For the theme ini you can use a program to make one. Like Alice R4 Theme Creator Final. I'm sure there are other ways to do it, I just don't know.

    Just try to take a look of other theme's theme.ini, usually some of them got some explanations inside it, like what command to color what, or if you're pretty lazy, just copy them directly for your theme, and justify it after you see the results! [​IMG]

    The author line isn't going to be shown, it's just to tell someone curious enough to see what inside a theme.ini [​IMG]
