I’ve been lurking these forums for a little bit, but I registered to share this. I was snowed in all week in Atlanta and running out of things to do, so I built a PS3 theme with the hi-res wallpapers available on the Japanese MVC3 website. If you use the theme, a random character wallpaper will appear every time you load up the XMB. It includes a wallpaper for all the confirmed characters except Jill and Shuma-Gorath, which weren’t available from the website. I’ll do my best to keep it up to date as new characters are announced and wallpapers are made available.
I used icons from another custom theme which I’ve used forever (the “neon” theme by JyriK) but if anyone has ideas for actual MvC style icons, I’d be happy to use those to create a truly “custom theme”.
You can download it here and check it out: Custom MvC3 BG Theme.p3t**
(fair warning, I have no idea if there’s a download limit for that link, so if someone wants to mirror it that would be pretty cool)
To install it, put it on media that your PS3 can read (USB stick, Mem Stick Duo, etc depending on what model you have) in the PS3/THEME folder. Go to PS3 settings, Theme Settings, and choose Install, then choose the media and it should auto-detect it if you did everything right. Fair warning - if you run your PS3 in standard definition then (first, shame on you and) this theme might not work.
My hope is that this thread will turn into a collaboration so we can create a high quality custom SRK MvC3 theme that we can all be proud of. Please post with feedback or ideas! And enjoy the theme if you decide to use it!
