That's the way TPL_viewer dumps it and just to make sure I looked at it in TPL Editor FE by HowardC and it looks the same way with the darker background. Although I agree that is odd with the darker background.

Like 56killer said we really made the list to kinda get the ball moving on custom Skins for the Wii. I will eventually make some type of chart to show where each image is located in the Wii menu, but that won't be for a bit as I have some home renovation to do before that gets done.

^it doesn't always use png to enable transparent background. it might use bmp with selected color to be transparent.

exactly the background color of the image used must be transparent. in other words You have to play around with an image editor.

Now the only questions left:

1) The Filesize is in kB? Or in something other?
2) How can you make transparency?

Again, many Thanks for this Hard work. Many Thanks again

Ahh..like the purple from .bmps? Uhh..a little sad...you have to make pixelated Images...damm...why can't Nintendo use .pngs

?

Look here for what I mean:

(Klick on it)

Or can I do it like the first way (Layer on Layer with special color (transparent))? If I look close to the Images of Nintendo, it looks like Big N done it like that...I'm confused

Oh thats funny, i am working aswell on something like this:

http://wiki.0rangechicken.com/wiki/SystemMenu_Documentations

Only thing whats left is the ASH Files content, but i want to do it a little bit different.
Most important difference is that i want to add the alpha channel,
so people know instantly what is transparent or not, and can load it into Photo Shop/Paint Shop.

Wow, not much...Ok...I'm quiet now...going to start at some Images...bb

Well its an Wiki, so everyone can add stuff to it. Thats the idea about it
smile.gif

So its 100% up to 56killer and ften, if they want to add there infos/Pictures to the wiki.

@Blue-K
The Alpha Channel is allready in the TGA file, we would need something wich can mass extract them from tng and save them as PNG.

But that Alpha Channel thing is not needed to make own custom TPLs(since you make anyway your own one).
It would be just to complete the Wiki(to follow the idea of an Encyclopedia).
