Is there a way to disable the "disc info" and/or the PVR section? I just want to make a very basic, clean looking menu with no cover art or additional info about the game being displayed.

Thanks again RazorX!

You could achieve this with my app by creating a custom theme and changing the positions of them with the app so there off screen.

Yeah, I agree this would be very useful. I was unable to create cover art for a particular few games as they keep crashing after re-built. I'd rather turn off cover art for all than having a few blank ones.

I created easy to use tools to replace the pvrs for the entire tosec dump collection and included a pvr for every game in the three regions. (PAL, NTSC, JAP)
There available on this forum, just make sure to run the script updater to use the latest versions of my scripts.
just bare in mind there gdi only, no cdi support.

Oh cool, I will definately experiment with that when I get my GDEMU :)

Any idea what values would be needed to change the game info section and PVR section to make them off screen? Thanks again.

Thanks. I knew about the tool and it is a great tool indeed! Saved me a lot of time. However there are just a few games that doesn't work after replacing the art, such as Max Steel and Metropolis Street Racer. Mostly I get a black screen or freezes for these problematic ones. It has nothing to do with your tool. But anyway thanks to megavolt85 and dubcity I have already obtained the workings ones posted on this forum. :D
