    Never heard of DDS format. What game is this from? How did you edit this format? Where the images originally in TPL format, or why is it that you need to convert them to TPL?

    you can get some tools from (iirc) nvidia to convert dds to common image types like png and jpeg. and from there you can use gxtexconv from devkitpro to make the tpl. i havent seen any tool that does direct dds tpl conversions.

    this is the stuff i used when i was messing with dds files. http://code.google.c...-texture-tools/
    im not sure of the name, but somewhere in there is a tool to convert the dds to other formats that should work with gxtexconv

    I thought that 1.
    There is a problem with it, because such a tool it is possible only to get from russian people.
    Unfortunately, the language and it is not too easy.

    The standard TPL-format does NOT contain any DDS-images.
    If you want to put DDS-images into a TPL you have to convert the DDS-images to a standardformat and create a new TPL with libwiisharp for example.

    libwiisharp he isn't used for it. You don't understand his problem. There are a few graphics inside of one tpl.
    This is not native format of tpl. It is other tpl.

    what are you talking about by "native format of tpl". that makes no sense.

    Good luck! ^^
