Can I ask how you went about creating this? How do you create custom logos like that for instance?

All the artwork was drawn by me (barring the icons running along the bar which are just bitmaps grabbed off the interweb) in CorelDrawX3 although anything that can create .tga files is fine (Gimp for example). You need several tools (I use WAD Studio and WADder) to extract and build from a WAD. It's also recommended you have some brick protection for testing purposes! A bad icon or banner can brick you Wii.

If you're interested I can give you fuller instructions.

It depends on the version of scummVM you are using. I use bossk's latest revision which gives me the choice to exit to the loader or the main Wii menu.

Thanks, but this is an early version. You really want the Ultimate version which can be found on this forum here. :D
