    Ok, I'm not exactly a noob...sorta...but anyway I don't know where to ask this. No one seems to be able to help me

    I'm almost done with a channel I'm making and I based the BRLYT file off an official VC game, I did some editing of it with Notepad++ and it's almost perfect to what I had in mind except one detail that's driving me CRAZY! I have replaced the VCPic showing a preview of Super Mario Bros with a pic of an NES instead. Before doing so I totally erased the images white background with the hopes I'd see the system and nothing else but the channels background. Upon inserting the edited BRLYT and image into the channel with CustomizeMii I see the NES image surrounded by a black box with rounded corners (appears to be about the size of the old SMB image but of course all black). Can someone please help me find out what values I need to change to make this "black box" become transparent?

    Just to give a visual example of my issue I'm attaching an image. As you can see from it I have a pic of a NES system and, just as I described in my previous post, it is surrounded by a black box which I wish to remove leaving only the NES system there by giving it more "official" appearance (at least in my opinion). As stated, the problem is I have no idea how to do it...I have changed many many different attributes in the BRLYT file and none have affected the black box.

    I have never attempted this but after reading the customizemii site the newer version has a transparency check box. Also when you load the image it should show like a checkerboard where the black is now in the new image. If you don't see a checkerboard then the black isn't really transparent. As for general image processing don't use like paint, you need like Photoshop or gimp (gimp is free). They also do the checkerboard thing for transparency. Let me know if you see the checkerboard in either gimp or customizemii, if you do we know the issue isn't with the source image but rather the settings.

    Gimp is what I used to erase the background. When I preview it on CustomizeMii or GIMP it shows a checkered background, it's not till after installing the channel I see the black box.
    I'm starting to think maybe transparency can't be applied to that certain item...I don't know why it wouldn't be able to though. I've done a breakdown and the only things it (seems like) could possibly be are an image called "my_TVW_a", or the "VCPic0" and "VCPic1" settings.
