Default Metroid Theme

I'm not new to these boards, I just lurk around, and haven't posted anything yet.

But now I am posting.

Here's my Metroid Theme in a .mi4 which is my first successfull one and took me forever to make [worth it].

Great for a first, but i just find the text on the mainmenu funny. idk. it just doesnt match theme imo. Anyways good job on the other stuff, but the ratings screen should either have just the metroid or just the BG. Not some metroid pasted on to the old screen. I have no idea how to theme, so i cant really say much, but compared to other peoples firsts, this is one of the more appealing ones to me.

awesome job, and keep it up!

<3metroid btw

EDIT: also, the text on the artist/songs list screens are a tad hard to read. Maybe u should go with a simpler background for those?
hoping for a v2 of this theme

Well, here's version 2. I'll probably keep updating it until it's perfect.

Changes-- I lightened up the background in the menu, so text is more easily read. Also, I put the theme into the textless firmware so there isn't copies of each word in the main menu.

I don't exactly know how to make some of the pictures transparent. I thought if you make it black, it will be transparent, but someone said only for certain pictures, which ones? [that's why I haven't changed the rating screens yet.]

theme-- http://www.box.net/shared/08e7yr5vkk

edit: oh yeah, and I changed the color of the text from a white/black gradient to a blue/dark blue gradient. anyone know how to make pictures transparent?

For me it was a guess and check for the transparent backgrounds. Also looking between 2 Image Packs can help find the similar black areas. I used Zipper Solutions and My Deepest Blue to compair and contrast. (they are very differently colored themes so if they shared black spots, there was a really good chance it was transparent.)

Some general tips:
It is an icon.
The icon is small.
Part of something animated (connected animation)
Icon is used to overlap more than one thing.
There is more than one icon in the picture.

Hope this helps.

It's been forever since I've been on this forum, or even looked at this theme. I'm not sure but I think it's for 1.02.15A. Too lazy to check now :/
