    Ok so to loose borders the wii has to be 4:3 to display a 16:9 health otherwise it drops in black bars on a widescreen tv so the options are:

    find a way to get it to boot in 4:3 then into 16:9 after health screen

    find a way of editing so it doesn't add borders.

    any ideas? [​IMG]

    Someone should get the original healthscreen iamge from the .app, add some white boarders to it and then check if that fits in 16:9 screens. If it does then we should check how it does it.

    This thread has to be worth a bump. I suspect Golfman560's suggestion would reveal the borders, and a clever hack will be required.

    Great minds think alike! I was pondering this since the first custom bootscreen.

    that would be a good idea. Is it possible to make the preloader do this considering how it is installed in the wii?
