GameCube Virtual Console Banners
If you're like me you've gotten tired of that ugly standard banner your loader sets to your GameCube games...and maybe you don't like the custom banners you can download via your loader either. Well look no further than this thread. Here I will be creating and uploading Virtual Console style banners for GameCube games starting with the 20 or so I own but I will take requests as well for those who can't, or don't want to, do this themselves.
How to Make a Request
To place a request simply comment with the following info:
Number of Players:
You'll also need to provide a screen capture, preferably of the games title screen. You can do this on your PC with Dolphin or on your Wii if you have Dios Mios installed. For DM users just plug a GC controller into port 4 and press R+Z, for Dolphin users just click the screenshot button or function + print screen. Once you have the screen capture you'll need to either upload it on a photo sharing site or as a zip file I can download. The reason I ask you not attach it here is the ratio will be too small, the image must be at least 256x192 otherwise the image may require resizing and will likely suffer from distortion.
When I have finished creating the banner it will be added to this post and I will comment to let you know it's been uploaded.
Requests Status: OPEN
While requests are open I will only take a certain amount of requests at one time before I close requests again so I can work on the banners but not take an obnoxious amount of time on them. I will be also try to upload preview images at some point so please be patient, there is moreto come :)
Note: All banners I upload are from NTSC games unless otherwise noted.

You may notice the first 10 banners are directly attached to this post while the rest, starting from Rainbow Six 3, are linked on another part of the site. The reason for this is because there is a limit to 10 attachments per post. I may in the future change the 10 that are directly attached to also being linked in the new downloads section of the site but for now they are fine as they are.
How to Use The Banners
These banners will automatically be displayed by your loader if it has custom bnr support and the bnr files are named and placed in the correct location. I've taken care of naming the files correctly all you have to do is place them in the right folder. At the moment I can only confirm USB Loader GX as being compatible with custom bnr images, I will look into if WiiFlow and CFG Loader also support this.
USB Loader GX (r1204 or higher required): Place the bnr files in /apps/usbloader_gx/cache_bnr, then go into the loaders settings page 2 and scroll to the bottom to find "Cache BNR Files Path". If it isn't already set to the specified path, change it. You should now see the custom banners, if not try rebooting the loader.
As always feel free to comment letting me know of any errors with the thread or it's attachments or if you have any suggestions, and click the thanks button if you like what's here.
