Here are some tips to get you started:

Create your 320x224 16-color image with the positions for infobars and filelist in mind.
if you work with PhotoShop you may want to turn on your grid and set it to 8x8 pixels, that's the size of one tile.

I just downloaded your pack! They are absolutely fantastic! I didn't realize some of them had animation. I feel like my EDPRO just got a new life. It massively improves the presentation of the menus. The custom fonts, colors, everything is amazing. Love, love, love these. Really well done! Please keep them coming! Let us know how to support you!

Thank you. I think I'll retire from making themes since there was very little feedback. Also I ran out of ideas for new themes. If one day new features are available I might revisit the topic.

I think folks just didn't catch on to it yet. I think they'll come around. They are really well done, brother. It really changes the experience for the better. @KriKzz, is there any way to include a similar theme reader in the N8 Pro?

@arcade, This was definitely the case with me. Was updating my firmware and came across this feature and your themes. I second NerdyBros opinion, your themes are fantastic and add so enjoyment to the the overall experience using the megadrive pro. Just wanted to chime in and let you know your work is awesome!

Hi there! I've cooked up two themes so far:
- Static image from Robocod with a font from the game
- Horizontal parallax scrolling of Labyrinth zone from the Sonic 1 prototype
I plan to make more, this is really fun!

Am I wrong or in-game menu is not tainted by themes?
