    I'm bored of the default look, so I wanted to download a theme, unfortunately the only site that came up was wii.spiffy360.com, and I'm guessing it's down because I can't access it. Are there any other sites? I wish Filetrip had a subcategory for themes.

    Aw, man, does anyone know how long it's been down and was it shuttered without any notice at all? It's really a shame those themes weren't archived elsewhere. I have a small number of them, maybe I could upload them somewhere or email them to you later.

    It's not down anymore but it doesn't matter cause it's impossible to register a new account... :sad:

    if anyone with access can backup themes, that will be useful in case the website closes.
    if someone has many themes to upload, the category can probably be created on filetrip or download section of the forum. if it's only 2-3 themes there's no need for a new category.

    I removed the internal theme downloader from the loader because it now requires registration to access them.
    but if they are hosted somewhere else where there's no registration needed, maybe the theme download menu could be restored in the loader, but I can't promise anything (maybe it won't be on proper host, or maybe there's just not enough memory left in the loader, I added lot of gamecube things since I removed theme downloader menu). This is just an idea, in case themes can be seen by the loader again.

    Choose an upload site that fits USB loader gx since you are the best to choose that.

    I will try to upload them, or I will send them to you

    I will update on what has been backed

    I'm not responsible for hosting external data (covers, banners, themes). it would require people to submit their files to me in order to put them in proper places. I can't manage that.
    if you choose to upload them to gbatemp's filetrip or download center (or another place), it'll be a backup for users. and if at the same time, it can be seen by the loader it's just a bonus. but like I said it might not be possible anymore due to memory constrain so don't choose a host based on an hypothetical possible the loader's feature.

    anyway, thank you for your time doing the backup for other users :)
    I'll ask Costello if we can add a new theme section on Wii download, or maybe child of wii loaders.

    edit:
    Actually, there are already themes for other loaders posted in this category, you can upload them here too:
    http://mike-dawson.com/download/categories/other-files.166/
    if there's a preview picture, that'll be even better.

    Ok but do you know the upload site that is more compatible with USB GX?

    UPDATE : backed up all 300 USB GX themes. There is 2 more inaccessible without help of admins, and I’m waiting their answer.

    a compatible host would be one using simple http (not SSL) that lists direct links on a html page, or a xml or json database with all direct links, and if possible another link for a preview picture.
    so, a simple http host, with direct links (no download wait time, redirection, button to click to find the direct url, etc.).

    Thanks for all the time you spend on getting the themes. don't worry if 2 themes are not available, it's very small issue and I guess nobody uses it if it can't be found/downloaded. but if you get them, it's a nice addition to the backup.

    thank you, but don't expect the theme download feature to be back quickly. I'm a slow coder, making lot of bugs :lol:
