    Hello everyone. Today I'm releasing a Windows tool that will make the TurboGrafx-16/PC Engine injection process much easier and customizable. I'm introducing Ultimate T16-PCE VC Injector for 3DS.

    What does it do?:
    It takes a TurboGrafx-16/PC Engine backup file and converts it to an installable CIA for your 3DS with CFW. It does all in a one single program.

    Features:
    • VC T16-PCE injection into a CIA
    • Easy made custom 3D banner
    • Easy made custom text/footer banner
    • 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.

    Thanks to @hippy dave for the english menues!
    Thanks to @ongo_gablogian for the region free PC Engine 3D banner!

    Enjoy!

    I wasn't even aware there was a virtual console for turbografx16/pc engine.

    Amazing job once again :D

    TurboGrafx-16/PC Engine games used to be released only in Japan on the 3DS eShop, and even so, there were only four games for sale. There are even more games on the Japanese Wii U eShop than those on the 3DS. Now this allows you to play injected TG16/PCE games on a European/American 3DS.

    Oh, sweet!

    So does this one use the official banner/3d model, or do we have to provide it?

    This injector uses the TurboGrafx-16 model found in the official banner but unused; the four Japanese eShop games use a PC Engine model for the banner.

    There's also the PC Engine model in this injections, but It'll only show on a Japanese 3DS I guess.

    Asdolo, assuming it's just a matter of moving the banners across some directory, can you add the option to use the Japanese PC Engine with a western language, like you did the Famicom? Yes I really like the original Japanese consoles :P But if it's harder than that doesn't matter...

    Also, this doesn't work with PCE CD, right?

    I will try, but It's not the same as the Famicom banners. The Famicom and the NES banners were two differents banner.bin files. For this console, the banners are in the same banner.bin file, but I'll look into this!

    I'm almost sure it only works with HuCard's games :/

    Just rename banner9.bcmdl (the Japanese banner model file) or copy it, that is all.

    Also, it's practically impossible to convert PCE CD to PCE HuCard, because HuCard doesn't support .cue files or music tracks.

    BlargSNES... before... SNES? Whaa?

    Also, perhaps later on you can merge them all into one Ultimate VC Injector Turbo Advance?

    This is very cool indeed, but I wonder if there's any documentation anywhere about this emulators compatibility. I've only tried to convert a few of ROMs - Metal Stoker and the Splatterhouse Chrome romhack- and they've not worked (VC boots up but top screen remains black). Gekisha Boy runs fine however.

    Neutopia also gave me some graphical errors and Blazing Lazers didn't boot as well.
