    Hello everyone. Today I'm releasing a Windows tool that will make the GBA injection process much easier and customizable. I'm introducing Ultimate GBA VC Injector for 3DS.

    What does it do?:
    It takes a GBA backup file and converts it to an installable CIA for your 3DS with CFW. It does all in a one single program.

    Features:
    • VC GBA injection into a CIA
    • Easy made custom 3D banner
    • Easy made custom text/footer banner
    • Easy made ghosting/bright configuration
    • Easy made rom patching.
    • Easy made whole process!

    Requeriments: Microsoft .NET framework 4.5

    Tutorial:
    You'll just follow the steps in program. But just in case:
    Tutorial + screenshots
    (The tutorial's screenshot are from v1.0)

    Console screenshots:

    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    TODO, petitions, etc: For now I'll just read this thread and make changes acording to the best for all. The code will be released much later; I'm planing to do a series of VC injectors... If a new version comes, I'll post here and I'll edit the OP.

    Enjoy!

    Thanks to @CheatFreak47 and @Cornholio309 for feedback, reports, help, information, resources and testing!

    New version 1.0b! This is due to bad testing xD

    What's new:
    * Fixed a bug with the 24x24 icon generation (bad resizing).

    I have a question: Since it already has ghosting and color options, will there be a possibility to also automatically patch already existing GBA releases?

    Do you still have to patch Pokemon games beforehand

    Would it be possible to add support for importing icons/banners from an existing cia without having to manually extract banner.bnr and such?

    I guess that also applies to Super Mario Advance 4. What tools do I use to patch it?

    Need for Speed Carbon doesn't go farther than the ''Create Profile'' screen. That's basically just the first thing you do after choosing your language.

    Edit: Rayman 3 deletes my saves.

    Does this auto patch save to work properly? I previously had to use GBATOOL and patch it before generating some TRF file before using another program for injection. So if it does, i hope so.

    "Add the feature to patch already existing GBA CIAs to modify ghosting and color options?"

    It would be nice if it was also added to the other injectors. :D

    I was wondering, is there any way to switch screen of GBA gameplay? I mean that the GBA screen shows up on the bottom screen while the top screen stays black?

    Well if that's possible that would really be appreciated since playing on the botton screen better resembles playing on an original GBA. I hope somebody will look into this.

    Is it possible to hack the banner file to get rid of the purple GBA screen and just use plain GBA covers?
