Ok... So I have a LWP Update.zip that has the blackdroid background with only blue and silver nexus lines running over it. Thought it would look cool with a spiderman background instead. So I open the update with 7Zip and swap out the droid head png ( Named pyramid_background.png ) with a spiderman pic (Renamed to match the old background). Swapped out the thumbnail for the LWP selection menu and applied. The thumbnail preview is correct but when selected and run, I get a black screen and a force close.
My theory is that this SHOULD work as long as the png has the same name as the original. I'm thinking I have the wrong size but I resized my image to match the other background. ( Ive opened several of these LWP. apk and seen a couple of different sizes. Anyone know exactly what the size should be? ) Is it possble that there are too many colors in the png?
Can anyone give me some suggestions on how to make this work? I know there are members here that are happy to make LWPs for others but I'd like to be able to do it myself whenever the urge strikes.
Thank you all for the GREAT things everyone contribute to this site. You have made my Droid fun to use and I have learned a bunch from reading what you brilliant modders have to share with us. ( Which you do so freely and happily )
