Tried to load skin, now SMS won't boot at all?
Tried to load skin, now SMS won't boot at all? –
I had 1.7r3 running, decided to up to 1.7r5 and play with skins.. so, got 1.7r5 in, working fine. Started to try skins, finally figured out that I needed SMI format instead of SKN, and used proper tool to create the SMI file.. also found somewhere here a SMS.ZIP with a (supposedly) working skin.. put the SMI on the MC (mc0:/SMS), loaded SMS, and background won't show. Read that deleting CFG file on MC would fix it, which I deleted.. same thing, no skin.
Then it quit loading. Now all I get is a black screen, buttons won't do anything, tried START, down repeatedly, then X (hoping to hit "exit SMS"), no luck.
I deleted *ALL* files from the SMS folder, tried v1.6r1, v1.7r3, r5 and even r6 independently.. all go black and never load up. Tried loading them off hdd:+ELFS as well, same thing.. The mc0/SMS folder is empty except for SMS.ELF, and still nothing.
I can't seem to find any other SMS files on the MC or the HDD.. and yet, SMS will not load. Going to dig out a different MC card and try to load it off that...
Anyone got a suggestion for me??
Too bad you're having trouble. Maybe your MC is the problem. The only suggestion I have is to download a fresh copy of SMS. How are you launching the ELF?
SOLVED - FTP proggy was corrupting data
What's the "proper tool" to create the SMI file?
Actually, I've no idea of how to make the skin, 'cause I don't have a user manual. the link is invalid now.
so, could you please send me a copy?

thanks in advance
