USBAdvance Skin GuideSkinning USB Advance is not difficult, but requires the use of DOS and several applications.
First create a folder on C:\USBA and download the above files into it.
You will need to use cmd.exe several times, to to help shorten the amount of commands, put a copy of cmd.exe from the Windows folder into this folder as well.
Next unpack the USBADVN.ELF with the GUI
to shorten DOS commands, rename it to unpack.elf
Open a Command Prompt and type: usbastrip /x unpack.elf
Now all the files from the elf are extracted into the usba folder. You can simply edit these with your Paint Program or use them as a guide and make new images, depending on your experience level .
When naming your new images at time of saving them, remember to keep it short since you will be manually typing them into a DOS command prompt.
arrow,button,font,frame & misc must be either 32bit .TGA or Interleaved RAW format
main & splash must be either 24bit .bmp, 32bit .TGA or Interleaved RAW format
After you have finished with your creation its time to patch the images into usb advance.
Patching the images
Open the cmd.exe and type: usbastrip /? or just use this as a guide
This will show the commands required to patch each image to the unpacked usbadvance.elf
In the command prompt type:
usbastrip [options] [file] infile.elf [outfile.elf]
usbastrip /im newmain.bmp unpack.elf usbadvance.elf
usbastrip /is newsplash.bmp /im newmain.bmp unpack.elf usbadvance.elf
If you want to bypass the splash screen from loading and load directly to the main screen, use the /s option to remove it.
Just press the enter key and all options chosen are listed as done or an error will show if the image is incorrect.
If you wish to pack the new usbadvance.elf, use the packer GUI you used to unpack it at the begining of the guide. It isnt necessary to pack it if your planning to run the app from disc .
Thanks goes to eustolio for the information used to make this guide.
