For those of you who don't know, I've been working on a turn-key solution for injecting roms to the virtual console. Basically you'll select the system, select a donor wad, click "inject" and the rom will be injected, the banner and save images will be automatically generated (from base images you point to), ect..... No hex editing or nothing. More info can be found in the banner editing thread. In order to do so I've had to start building a rather extensive toolset, based around the info we know about the various vc emulators. I am getting close to the point to where I'll need help discovering info and/or help with beta testing, so I thought this would be a good time to start a dedicated thread. This top post will be kept updated with any tools that are released. ================== Wip Log: 03/04/09- Added tg/pce cd notes to the developer's docs. 03/01/09- Updated u8tool to 10.1 03/01/09- Updated u8tool to 10 02/18/09- Updated u8tool to 9.6 02/18/09- Updated u8tool to 9.5 11/23/08- Updated the u8tool to 9.0 11/14/08- Updated the Save Icon Injector to 5.0 11/14/08- Updated the brlyt editor to 9.0 11/09/08- Updated the u8tool to 8.0 11/09/08- Updated the brlyt editor to 8.0 11/09/08- Updated the Save Icon Injector to 4.0 10/21/08- Updated the brlyt tool to 7.1 10/17/08- Updated u8 tool to 7.1 10/17/08- Updated the Save Icon Injector to 3.0 10/17/08- Updated u8 tool to 7.0 10/03/08- Fixed the Link to the Icon Injector (exe was corrupted) 10/03/08- Updated the Icon Injector to 2.0 10/02/08- Updated the u8 tool to 6.5 10/02/08- Updated the u8 tool to 6.0 10/01/08- UPdated the tpl editor fe to 2.0 (adds support for wte, as well as neogeo and nes save icons) 9/24/08- Updated the brlyt editor to 6.0 (should work properly now) 9/22/08- Updated the Icon Generator to 8.0 (should be final version barring any bugs found). 9/19/08- Updated the U8 Tool to 5.0 9/16/08- Updated Icon Generator to 7.0 9/16/08- Added Tpl Editor to misc utilities. 9/14/08- Updated Icon Generator to 6.1 9/13/08- Updated brlyt editor to 5.0 9/13/08- Updated icon Generator to 6.0 9/02/08- Removed u8 tool for noob protection until further notice. 9/02/08- updated the Icon Generator to 5.0 9/02/08- Updated VC brlyt Editor to 4.1 (Fixes nasty bug!) 9/02/08- Removed the Color Viewer from the demo apps as it's been integrated into the brlyt editor. 9/01/08- Released VC brlyt Editor 4.0 (formerly vc info editor) 8/29/08- Updated U8 Tool to 4.0 8/27/08- Updated CCF Tool to 2.0 8/27/08- Updated U8 Tool to 3.0 ================== Released Components: (All are considered beta... report any bugs here) ================== VC Save Icon Injector/Save text Editor 5.0 (Uses the Icons made by my generator to inject the save icons with wierd consoles like the nes and neogeo.

Developers Docs: ==================== Notes on the PCE/TG cd format on the VC Note: I know some of you can't access rapidshare links, but I use it because I can upload a file without an account with a single click and I don't have all the time in the world. Anyone wishing to add alternative links do so in the thread and I'll add them here.
