hello everybody.

Thanks to Trez, I have done some changes in the installation files. So it should also work with versions 59.x. All themes are updated with the new installation file.

Install procedure is still the same.

As I have a v56 on my own Mz3, could someone (who couldn't install theme + if possible on version 59.x) test the new version ?

Thanks in advance !
Will do this today sometime, will post my results.

Well bad news, really bad news, it bricked my head unit and I cannot do anything on it now :( very sad

Corwin9s, I popped on your site and saw the directions for changing a background photo. It said to just name it background.png and stick it on a USB and then stick it in the USB slot. Is it really that easy or are there other files I need to have on that USB to make it swap in the new background?
hi. it's quite so simple, but not so easy !

First, download the zip file of the theme you want.
Then unzip it in an empty USB flash drive (max 8Go).
You then will have some files and a folder in this drive. Those are the mandatory files.

Example of files that you need to have (as on a mac) :

If you want to change the background only, use the theme "Background Only". You of course will have only the filder "background". All other files are still mandatory !
So, to put the picture you want as background, delete the picture named background.png (in the folder background). Take your own picture, which has to be 480x800 pixels and a png file. Put your picture in the folder background and rename this picture to background.png.

Then plug the usb flash drive in your cave, etc....

Hello,

another new theme released :


US Military




Click here for more pictures and to download it

===========================================

For reminder :

HOW TO CHANGE BACKGROUND ?

It's very very easy !

First at all, the .zip has to be unzipped. Then go in the "background" folder. You may seen several files, like this for example:


Simply rename the picture you want as background to exactly "background.png" and delete the others (or not).

You also can add your own background picture, but remember that:
- size has to be 800x480 pixels
- file type has to be .png
- name has to be "background.png"

Enjoy theming !

Corwin9s,

Thanks for all the backgrounds you have put on this site (along with instructions). I installed one of the Steampunk backgrounds, it looks great. Just one more way to personalize my 3
