    I recreate the original Virtual Console Wii U, this is a template for you to put your own injects so they look like the real ones. Template is in psd format.
    It looks like this

    Yours adds the "Virtual Console" template to the image you provide the script? Doesn't seem like it?

    Code:
    echo "VCiicon Beta by Larsenv."
    echo "Requires ImageMagick for now, and icon to iconTex.png."
    echo "\n"
    mkdir "meta"
    convert iconTex.png -resize 122x81\! -gravity center iconTex.png
    convert iconTex.png -gravity center -crop 128x128 iconTex.png
    composite -geometry +3+17 iconTex.png ./resources/iconTex.png ./resources/iconTex.png ./meta/iconTex.tga
    rm iconTex.png
    echo "\n"
    echo "Done."

    Well it uses ImageMagick (a CLI based tool) to do everything, and I'm working on it right now so there will be more.

    Ah, I see. It would be neat if it could automatically apply @OriginalHamster's image over top.

    That's actually a good idea.

    I can do it soon. :)

    Gambia, The
    Looking forward to this.
    You should give the user the choise whether he wants this "Virtual Console" banner at the bottom and/or if he wants corner banners at the top right (or top left) with the logo of SNES, N64, GBA, GB, GBC, DS or NES. :P
    I mean something like this:
    http://art.gametdb.com/wii/cover/US/NEEA.png?1394293598
    http://art.gametdb.com/wii/cover/EN/FBBP.png?1390577357

    I guess this would be great although you must find the right balance between logo size and not spamming over the main image.

    So a user who wants to create an icon for Ocarina of Time has the following options:
    - "pure" OoT icon
    - OoT icon with "Virtual Console" at the bottom
    - OoT icon with "N64" logo at the top corner
    - OoT icon with "Virtual Console" at the bottom and "N64" logo at the top corner

    Ah I made the first cover.

    I'm pretty sure I can do this in the future.

    Gambia, The
    Brilliant! Then you're already practiced. :D
    I'll wait for this until I recreate all my VC icons.
