    Hi!
    I'm trying rip Bowser's inside story sprites, but I don't know how.
    I have tried NitroExplorer, but I think it's not right program to open those files...
    Anyone know what to do? It will be big help [​IMG]

    (oh, am I in the right topic?)

    Thanks [​IMG] But that's the problem... Every file is *.dat file, and Tahaxan (what I'm using right now) won't open those files. Or am I doing it wrong? [​IMG]

    NOTICE:: I'm not very good at this, so my information may be a bit off, but it should be mostly accurate ::NOTICE


    Get CrystalTile2

    Open the ROM in CrystalTile2, then along the top row of buttons, click the DS icon.
    This will bring up a file browser, scroll through and find 'NCG' files.
    (( Since this is a first party Nintendo game, they will possibly/probably be compressed to .bin files.
    You'll need a LZ77 decompress tool to decompress, then just drop the decompressed file into CT2 ))
    You should be able to right click and have an option to view the sprites/images.


    Alternatively, you can check out NDS Editor.
    I've never used it or heard of it before now, but it came up while I was trying to find a LZ77 tool.
