    You have to name it 1-12.bmp and put it inside your resource folder (in flash).

    After that it is selectable from the theme menu in your XMB

    Yup, then the PSP will think its the monthly background image, and use it below your waves.

    Odd, more and more people are getting this problem...

    Have you made sure the image is a BMP, not a JPG saved as one. Also try a different size, for example 460x260

    @Reitfor
    :p

    @matt11504
    Then thats truly bizzare, theres nearly always one white box :S have you named it correctly?
     
  17. Reitfor

    Reitfor Guest

    Yes. There is suppose to be a sorta looking colored white box, like, the first one in themes. Just rename it exactly like the 1-12 file, it has to be identical.

    i named it 1-12.bmp
    the only thing close to a white box under theme is the grayish theme sony provided.

    Does it read, 1-12.bmp? Cause mine is only 1-12. The format and icon has to be identical to that of the original too. Im not a wizard in this but dont u need another file to run with the waves?
