    Did you add support for importing CGFX/CWAV? Some of us like making 3D banners. ;) Refer to "BannerTool" which allows this. ;)

    I'll look into is as well as custom audio sound support (instead of the wii's Homebrew Channel sound). I want to make this the "definitive tool" for making banners ;)

    Banner Maker was good for its time but it's outdated now. Better to build your front end around bannertool.

    What are you using to create cgfx files? Or rather, what are you using to export into cgfx format?

    EveryFileExplorer. ;)

    It has a option in the new file menu where you can create a new CGFX file from an OBJ file.

    Any chance of a linux build? I might try and set up a C# compiler later on. Your tool looks nice, but doesn't run using WINE!

    I made this as a windows form project, so linux build is unavailable. About WINE, do you get some error?

    Yes, I don't have python set up in my WINE environment, so that seems to be the issue. I will play with it some and report back if/when I find a way to use this tool on linux.

    I'm switching to bannertool, which isn't python based. It'll still be windows only (wine too) ;)

    I have a lot of nes & gb/ gbc CIAS. Im not 100 % happy with the banners in those. Would it be easy to change with this tool?

    I think you should wait bannertool support... But to add that support I need someone to send me latest compiled bannertool for windows...


    Yes, you can use this tool to make a new one ;)
