    Hello everyone. Today I'm releasing a Windows tool that will make the GBA injection process much easier and customizable. I'm introducing Ultimate GBA VC Injector for 3DS.

    What does it do?:
    It takes a GBA backup file and converts it to an installable CIA for your 3DS with CFW. It does all in a one single program.

    Features:
    • VC GBA injection into a CIA
    • Easy made custom 3D banner
    • Easy made custom text/footer banner
    • Easy made ghosting/bright configuration
    • Easy made rom patching.
    • Easy made whole process!

    Requeriments: Microsoft .NET framework 4.5

    Tutorial:
    You'll just follow the steps in program. But just in case:
    Tutorial + screenshots
    (The tutorial's screenshot are from v1.0)

    Console screenshots:

    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    TODO, petitions, etc: For now I'll just read this thread and make changes acording to the best for all. The code will be released much later; I'm planing to do a series of VC injectors... If a new version comes, I'll post here and I'll edit the OP.

    Enjoy!

    Thanks to @CheatFreak47 and @Cornholio309 for feedback, reports, help, information, resources and testing!

    New version 1.0b! This is due to bad testing xD

    What's new:
    * Fixed a bug with the 24x24 icon generation (bad resizing).

    I have a question: Since it already has ghosting and color options, will there be a possibility to also automatically patch already existing GBA releases?

    Do you still have to patch Pokemon games beforehand

    Would it be possible to add support for importing icons/banners from an existing cia without having to manually extract banner.bnr and such?

    I guess that also applies to Super Mario Advance 4. What tools do I use to patch it?

    Need for Speed Carbon doesn't go farther than the ''Create Profile'' screen. That's basically just the first thing you do after choosing your language.

    Edit: Rayman 3 deletes my saves.

    Does this auto patch save to work properly? I previously had to use GBATOOL and patch it before generating some TRF file before using another program for injection. So if it does, i hope so.

    "Add the feature to patch already existing GBA CIAs to modify ghosting and color options?"

    It would be nice if it was also added to the other injectors. :D

    I was wondering, is there any way to switch screen of GBA gameplay? I mean that the GBA screen shows up on the bottom screen while the top screen stays black?

    That's unknown. Maybe modding AGB_FIRM...

    Well if that's possible that would really be appreciated since playing on the botton screen better resembles playing on an original GBA. I hope somebody will look into this.

    Is it possible to hack the banner file to get rid of the purple GBA screen and just use plain GBA covers?
