    Texture? Just the one? :tpi:

    Seriously though, I suggest looking through the .nds using a browser such as Crystal Tile 2, locate the textures and try to make sense of what format they are/what format they're closest to. Don't expect it to be an easy MSPaint job - it could very well be a huge pain.

    I had a quick scan through though I recall doing/seeing a similar teardown in the past.
    You will be looking at a mixture of 2d and 3d, with both sorts being compressed and stuck in sub files.

    Fortunately the likes of tinke and crystaltile2 will be able to cut through most of it as far as getting it out of the files. Once there the NSBMD files did not want to play quite so nicely with the existing tools, though I did get some nice wireframe images.
