    OK here is how you can make your won 3d covers for what ever back ground you want

    you will need the following

    bg.png

    and this pic i call temp.png

    [​IMG]

    and the program called Image Merger


    [​IMG]


    I use an old version of Paint Shop Pro but any art program can be used.

    Step 1
    Open up the bg.png you want to use

    [​IMG]

    Step 2
    (outline your starting point of your cover area as so i choose 50,92 for mine)
    (and of course your ending point is 160,225)

    [​IMG]

    you end up with this

    [​IMG]

    Step 3

    Now open up Image Resizer

    Step 4

    Step 5

    Step 6

    Step 7

    Step 8

    [​IMG]

    you end up with this

    then you get this

    Thought of starting a post for 3D covers with backgrounds for the ULTIMATE USB LOADER

    you can get the USB LOADER HERE

    I will be posting some new backgrounds and 3D covers to go with them I also take requests just need a background to use.

    OK i have made my own background for normal NOT WIDE SCREEN I also converted all the covers to fit the background.

    It looks very nice indeed, but if you could move the cover image a lil bit more to the right it would be just perfect dude [​IMG]

    What size are the covers and what happens with new releaaes ?
    Is there a place people can get them if they dont know how to make them themselves ?

    Looks well, but its not really 3d. Its just an edge on a standard cover

    console_coords=default is wrong but maybe because I am using 7.4.
    I have managed to get it working good , however.
    Thanks for sharing your 3D backgroungd and covers [​IMG]

    You do know that PNG images can have an Alpha channel, right? You don't need to make a whole new set of covers for each background.

    Not sure if it will help with this type of loader , but the covers on www.theotherzone.com.com/wii/ are now size adjustable .I have recoded my boxart images site so that if your getting images you can download any size now by doing it this way.

    http://www.theotherzone.com/wii/resize/ {region} / {width} / {height} / { GAMEID} .png

    example : http://www.theotherzone.com/wii/resize/nts.../600/RJ2E52.png

    not sure if it helps with this particular loader , but hopefully it may help out a little
