I updated the installation instructions to make clear that you just need to copy it somehow.

Also added a preview of all the icons of the OldBoy skin. Some icons are based on existing icons or screenshots, but most had to be prettied up or recreated completely. A doom logo or an atari console in 16x16 is really tricky  :)
Awesome!  They look great and thanks for the updated instructions.

If you skipped the first page: The skin pack has moved to GitHub to make updates easier  8)
Make sure to update your skins (PS4, PSNext, PSNextDark, OldBoy and Zelda) with the latest version from time to time:

Update: The Zelda skin was added to the skin pack on GitHub and supports GMenuNext now.

Did some research on how Nintendo handles fanart that includes their intellectual property. Something like this is apparently handled as 'fair use', but please drop me a line if you think I will get in trouble :)

I can't get my changes to a different skin to remain once my system (1.6) reboots. Is this normal?

Here are some updated previews from the latest skin pack - now with a lot of new icons. Only OldBoy wasn't updated for the latest CFW, yet...

the 6/23 version fixed the font issue so that chinese, korean and japanese characters can be displayed correctly. however, it seems that you changed the font.ttf file...

Oh, that's right, sorry... ::)

Small file size and good scaling were my top priorities when I compared fonts for these skins. Many fonts have some kind of offset or do not look good at that resolution.

I'll see if I can find a good alternative that supports these languages. As a quick fix, you could delete or rename the font.ttf file in the PS4/PSNext/PSNextDark folder, so that it falls back to the default font.
