    I want to change the pic of empty channels on the main menu but don't know what tpl

    *here is what i tried*
    -i thought(still think) that the empty channel pics were my_TV_c_p0.tpl ,through, my_TV_c_p3.tpl but every time i change them my Wii menu becomes all distorted. [​IMG]

    I want to know if you need special tools to edit those files or if i'm editing the wrong tpl files
    I just can't figure it by myself, I guess that's what i get for being stupid.

    -*thanks to anyone who helps*-

    Make the graphics in the my_TV_c_p0.tpl files greyscale and they work real nice. I did the matrix channel graphics and just used 4 clips out of a google images pic. The coloring is handled by the Brlyt file, not the images themselves. Also 24 bit works for them. No alpha.

    Here are some samples of the tpls's and bmp files used for small effects.
