Hello, I've been trying to make custom banners for use with NDS Forwarder, I used 3DS Banner Maker and tried following this and this guide as well as using the .exe provided with the tool, I can always succesfully create the required banner file which I then rename to romname.bin as per the instructions, however everytime I try to use it, it just doesn't work, no errors, nothing, it just shows the default DSi-style banner
I thought this was a problem with NDS Forwarder itself, but it's actually an error with the banner files, because downloading a pre-made custom banner works and it shows up fine

So now I am out of ideas about what to do, I can't test out other versions of Banner Maker, because this is the only version I found and any other download links seem to be completely dead and there seems to be no other tool for creating custom banners, so could someone point me in the right direction, please?

thanks

Hello, does anyone know of an alternative way to extract banner.bin files? Literally all versions of Hacking Toolkit on GitHub don't work for me

thanks
