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

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

    Features:
    • VC GBC injection into a CIA
    • Easy made custom colored 3D banner
    • Easy made custom text/footer banner
    • Easy made custom ingame border injection
    • 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)

    Custom in-game borders:

    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!

    AMAZING. Absolutely perfect.

    Any chance something similar could be done for original Game Boy, NES, and SNES?

    That's actually my plan! Doing this for Game Boy wouldn't be so different. And for NES and SNES I'll need to research a bit.

    NES needs tnes headers (tnes.exe can add this) and "Virtual Console" and TV textures. SNES needs changes to data.bin along with "Virtual Console" and TV textures. (Despite what most custom injects have, you do not need to change the cartridge texture inside the SNES, official VC doesn't.)

    Helpful tools like this are always appreciated! Does this builder allow for the emulated GameLink connectivity seen in the retail versions of Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow on VC?

    Sadly, no. The "old generation" VC is used here.

    That's a bit of a bummer. Hopefully someone figures that one out someday. In the meantime, this is a fantastic and easy-to-use tool that'll save me time anyway. Thanks much :) !

    Astounding job, I haven't tried it yet, but simple sort of injectors is something we've all needed for a very long time.
    I can only hope you'll continue by doing ones for GB, NES, SNES, and GameGear soon.

    Incredible job, and please, on behalf of everyone that stands to benefit from this, continue to do these injectors for each other 3DS virtual console.

    I'm trying to inject a patched Pokemon Crystal ROM and I'm getting this same problem as well.
