    There seem to be two icons contained in most GameCube ISOs: the game banner (a 96 x 32 image) and the save banner (a square icon, which can be animated). Most programs that can open GameCube ISOs can export the game banner to PNG, but I have not found one which can export the save banner from an ISO.

    How can I extract the save banner?

    I don't know if have an easier one but try GCRebuilder, I used it to try make some undubs (and failes OTL) and they shows your the icon and give option to get or change it

    on the cool side of the pillow
    You could take a screenshot of dolphin's Memory Card Manager.. I assume it to be at original resolution.
    You could also try to run the GCN BIOS on Dolphin and go to the Memory Card Manager (BIOS side ofc) and enable texture dumping

    The problem is that the game I wanted to rip from doesn't actually save. But as it is a prototype of a game that does save, I suspect that it has unused save icons. einstein95 has helpfully suggested that I use one of the tools that comes with GCN MemCard Recover to rip the icons from the (banner?) file on the disc. I haven't tried it yet, but expect that it will work.

    Bump. I finally got round to opening the banner.bnr. Works fine, but only contains the banner, not the icon. I assume it is in icon.bin, or might his game not have an icon.

    gcbanner doesn't seem to be able to open icon.bin. Can it? If not, what can?

    GCRebuilder reads from the banner.bin. Not the icon.bin.

    Bump. How can you rip the icon (the square graphic) from a GCN game that doesn't save but does have an icon.bin? And from one that doesn't save and doesn't have an icon.bin?
