I can't wait to get it set up...  it arrives tomorrow.

I have already downloaded the OS-V3.02, and am ready to get started!

I have noticed, however, that when people are talking about Everdrive 64 wallpaper for n64, they all mention that it should be 640x480 and in .gbmp format.  However, the background images that are already baked into the OS download are 320x240 and in Jpeg format.  Which is best to use?

Thanks!

gif? No, it's .bmp for the non-x7 Everdrives.

320x240 jpg is best to use for the x7.

Oh, and enjoy the Everdrive!

The ones I've made (well, I've converted from pictures I've downloaded from the Internet) are all 640 x 480, and they work fine on my v2.0 Everdrive 64, and I don't doubt that the v3 and X7 versions can also display these images (there's no reason why the later models should have lost the ability to display 640 x 480 images).

Here's how you convert a .jpg or other format to a 640 x 480 .bmp image that the Everdrive 64 can display:

and if anyone wants to download my ED64 wallpaper images then here is a zip file containing them all:

though unless you really like Perfect Dark or Conker's Bad Fur Day then you probably won't use them.

Thanks - that was totally a typo on my end!
