tutorial for applying skins??
tutorial for applying skins?? –
is there a turorial or something that tells me how i an apply the skins to my hda.elf? i looked but maybe i missing it.
if there is not one out there can someone tell me how to do it? please
Use zero's hdlpatcher or HDAIO (the gui frontend for the same program). Read the documentation and it's easy to do.
alright i did that, i undestand what to do now. BUT, when i load the .elf it says "file not well recongnized, be careful". whats wrong?
and is there a way i can extract a "hdl" .elf from an original HDLoader CD?
when i skin i always use commandline instead of HDL_AIO or any other HDL editor its easy to use and you can skin/patch any HDL.ELF version. i would always get that "file not well recongnized, be careful" but using commandline i get no errors. let me know if you need some help with commandline and skinning.
i cannot get this .elf unpacked, i have tried all my versions of it. Can somebody give me a hint on where to find the file
you can use any HDL.ELF to skin. I used the latest version 0.6d and it skinned fine. use the command prompt if you want it to go smoothly. if you need the commands let me know and ill post a tut for ya.
I wouldn't mind if you posted the tut
**PATCH and SKIN with command promt**
ok first off if your patching its best to use a fresh unpatched HDL.ELF if your just skinning then any version will do.I use HDL_AIO for the apps but not the GUI. ok i ALWAYS make a folder in my Local Disk (C): drive named HDL it makes it easier to navigate to. put HDL_AIO and all its contents in that folder(HDL). open HDL folder then open and copy the all files from the TOOLS folder to the HDL folder, you should now have ps2-unpacker and ps2-packer-0.4 (apps i use) and the patch hdlpatch_0.6d in HDL folder along with your custom main and splash. i dont use the other apps ie:toxic, usbastrip, sjuncrunch, ps2-packer-0.3 but you can if you need to. my original ELF is called "UNPATCHED.ELF" yours might be different, or might be the same
1-open command prompt (start/run/cmd)
2-type "cd c:\HDL" now your in the HDL folder
3-unpack elf "ps2-unpacker UNPATCHED.ELF HDL.ELF" you now have a unpacked elf 2908kb(HDL.ELF)
--------------app in use------original elf----new name of elf------
4-options for hdlpatch_0.6d "hdlpatch_0.6d" now you should see all the hdlpatch_0.6d options
5a-full patch and skin and color "hdlpatch_0.6d /N /C /S /L /IS splash.bmp /IM main.bmp /IF font.bmp font.dat /IC colors.txt HDL.ELF HDLP.ELF" you can use the other options if you like/need
5b-patch only "hdlpatch_0.6d /N /C /S /L HDL.ELF HDLP.ELF" you can use the other options if you like/need
5c-skin only "hdlpatch_0.6d /is splash.bmp /im main.bmp HDL.ELF HDLP.ELF" im not explaining how to make your own skin just how to patch it to HDL
6-pack elf "ps2-packer-0.4 HDLP.ELF HDLPP.ELF" all done. your elf is in HDL folder with the rest of the others, you can rename it if you like.
now all you gotta do is put it on your MC.hope i didnt miss anything
