    I am making available in this topic several tutorials that I created that teach how to create themes customized for 3DS.​

    Tutorials available:
    Primary Tutorials
    Updates
    • Textures with automatic stretching effect, to be used in the last Usagi update. Tutorial included. Under construction
    Secondary Tutorials
    Programs needed to create custom themes:
    • Usagi - Program to create customized themes, and the best program for creating and editing customized themes.
    • Yata Plus - Program to create custom themes, I recommend you download the Usagi editor.
    • Audacity modified version - Program to convert files in WAV and Cwav formats.
    • ctr_waveconverter32 - This plugin has the same function as the modified version of Audacity, it converts Wav files to cwav, this plugin can be integrated with Usagi.
    • LoopingAudioConverter - Program to convert WAV files to brctm.
    • Howling Theme Tool - This program converts custom themes to .cia format.
    Definitive tutorial on how to create Themes in cia format, tutorial created by Mizumi on Youtube.
    Definitive tutorial on how to use Usagi, created by XZize on YouTube.
    To use Yata plus or Usagi you need to have the following items:
    • Net Framework 4.5
    • Windows Operating System
    Official topic of the Usagi Editor
    Official topic of the Yata Plus Editor

    Official topic of posting of customized themes gives gbatemp.

    3DSTHEM site to send and download customized themes.

    You ask me, after reading these tutorials I will be able to create what types of themes. I leave below some examples of custom themes that I created using the methods explained in the tutorials.

    I hope this will bring more quality themes, I could try helping people too, but I haven't made themes for a while.

    I'm creating these tutorials because I know that many users find it difficult to create custom themes with fully customized icons. I will not give graphic designer classes, but I will pass all the methods that Nintendo uses in the creation of their themes.

    When I finish doing the primary tutorials I will do tutorials on how to create folders and edges of the Zelda game.
    Examples below.

    GIMP opens PSD files and allows you to make edits.

    Sorry for the double post, but this is one of the greatest threads I have seen in a long time. This actually got me interested in a new concept. I love making themes now. I will post my first one here when I finish. Thank you for your hard work and effort. Cheers.

    Thanks. Themes should be posted on this topic https://gbatemp.net/threads/custom-theme-thread.377399/ You can use the tutorials topic to get explanations or publish materials that help you create themes. I'm going to post a new tutorial this week, on how to create themes with rolling images.
