Panoramic Wallpaper utility -- I'm up for the challenge
 
If someone will tell me what goes into changing the panoramic wallpaper (i.e. everything that the CAB required to change it does) then I might try to create a utility that will "do it for you".

All the info you could want in posts 1 and 2.

You just make a 1536x512 image, break into three 512x512 images, and use cfcgui to place the images in the correct manila files (3 for portrait and 3 for landscape).

Okay, I have it creating the correct PNG files from a selected image, and then saving them into the Windows folder with the correct filenames.

But, I tested it on my own device (I have pano wallpaper - I prefer dark earth)... and after running the program, verifying the files were created correctly and all... and after restarting TF3D, the new panoramic wallpaper isn't there... just some default non-pano wallpaper.

What is cfcgui you refer to? Never heard of it.

ooohhh... it looks like the Manila files aren't merely PNGs, but PNG files converted to some proprietary format? QTC or CFC or something?

Please shed some light on this... ans maybe point me to where I can learn how to construct these programmatically.

This needs to be moved to the general forum ...

Clearly someone here lacks any skills at deduction

While I haven't tackled this myself yet, maybe this link would be of help:

Yeah, thanks. I've been pouring over that article (and the tech spec article associated with it), but everyone at that time was trying to create the QTC files from their desktops... and I need to programmatically create them on my device. NOT easy as I'm slowly learning. :-)

I might have to consider actually constructing the header for a QTC file manually!! :-|

I thin kthe cfcgui is a converter of some sort for the image files. Or maybe i lack aforementioned deduction skills as well.
