    This tool allows you convert your favorite NeoGeo games which romsets was converted in Darksoft format back to NeoGeo MVS (Multi-Video System) / NeoGeo AES (Advanced Entertainment System) romsets in NeoRAGEx format. This tool can also be used for prepare Neo-Geo Darksoft romsets for Wii Virtual Console injection on old & new Neo Geo Wii VC WADs, by using Devilken's Wii VC iNJECTOR or my NeoGeo game.bin.z ROM Generator & iNJECTOR for new NG Wii VC WADs.

    Special thanks to @sr_corsario (for the NeoGeo info about game structure and injection on new Wii VC WADs info), syring (for the UnxUtils split.exe splitting tool), kikex-box and the SpekSNK community (for the NeoGeo to NeoGeo CD Graphics Converter), the uCON64 team (for the uCON64 tool), and @Zorg1996 (for the big Wii VC injection support to me) for the help and also for pushing me to make this tool. :)
