Ok, I've just ported this to System menu 4.0. I have only done NTSC for now, I should do the PAL by the end of the day if Im up to it. No new icons/features were added.
changelog:
--Ported to 4.0U
--Press A to continue is back in its normal place until I figure out how to get it back to the password box(hex editing the blryt i believe)

Changelog 2:
--fixed the channel management crash
--yaz0 encoded the health.ash(to save space)
--added PAL version(Haven't tested myself but it should work)
--added all languages for the health screen

Instruction:
Install this with Softmii tweaks(I don't know if it will work with the other installer)
Keep the file name as 00000072.app*******
Please use preloader(0.29) because I'm not responsible yah dah yah...

Find it here on softmii

If you already have preloader, then just use the softmii tweak toy (dol/wad) and put the 000000XX.appWinXP***(xx = 72 or 75 due to your region) in the folder root/softmii/ and launch softmii tweak toy and press A on the 000000XX.app**** you want to install

all you would to get back is the original 00000072.app / 00000075.app which you could dump before hand with fsbrowser or you can get easily by unpacking the 4.0 system menu wad and of course you would need preloader 0.29 incase of a bad install

I've converted the Matrix and Rock Band themes to NTSC System Menu 4.0 and posted download links for them.

Also, I would like to announce that our editing channel on EFNET IRC #softmii-editing is now open and no longer private. If you would like to help in converting, editing, graphics or anything to do with themes you are welcome to join us in the channel and I will provide all the help and information I can. Even if your just interested in learning techniques and editing strategy for you own themes come and join us in IRC.

Ok i tested the PAL Version of the WindowsXP Theme.

It works fine but has a big problem:
The bootscreen is only in 4:3 and not in 16:9.
Can you fix that?

that's normal, all bootscreens are 4:3 there isn't a fix for that yet...
Maybe for the Bootlogo i can use crazyintro?

But the normal original Bootscreen is in 16:9?

you can use crazy intro for 16:9 bootscreens, cause even the original bootscreen is 4:3 but you cannot see that as the whole image is black with some text on it...
