    Hi,

    I have downloaded the Tahaxan and the required dlls but I still got an error message:

    "CCan not find procedure entry point _Z13luaL_newstatev (in the dynamic link library lua51.dll)"

    I tried to go to the author's web site but it seems to longer exist....

    I am curious if there is any alternate application that can extract files within the NDS roms or similar to Tahaxan?

    Or if someone know how to fix the above mentioned problem?

    Greatly appreciated.

    I would check that you have lua51.dll in the folder.

    You should have the following files and folders set up this way:

    If you have all the files, I would download a new version, possibly from here:

    Thanks twiztidsinz. [​IMG]

    I only have bgd.dll and lua51.dll

    After I gotten the rest of the dll files the programs works as intended.

    As you asked for alternatives the big two are Crystaltile2 and console tool

    http://filetrip.net/f23649-CrystalTile2-2010-09-06.html (this one should be in Chinese as well if you prefer)
    http://www.yeyezai.com/index.php?load=read&id=5 is something of a current homepage.

    Console tool
    http://www.romhacking.net/forum/index.php/topic,8407.html
    This one is still getting worked on a lot and is based in java but has some interesting abilities.

    As an aside on the old tahaxan forums there was a tool called nds editor, you can still grab it here

    If you just want to pull roms apart there are several other options.
    ndstool is the basic go to tool for most hackers although it is far from perfect (it was only ever intended for homebrew so that it works at all on commercial roms is something of a bonus). It has frontends in DSlazy and DSbuff.

    ndsts
    http://www.no-intro.org/tools.htm
    This and similar tools (ndshv for example) can extract and insert files if they are of the same size.

    nitro explorer-
    http://treeki.shacknet.nu/
    A bit more bulky but should hold up where ndstool fails.

    If you want the "perfect" method you can always go by hand as well
