To use, follow these steps in program:

  • Rom file selection - Pick a .gb file.
  • VC game icon and name - Complete the fields for the info boxes.
  • VC GB 3D banners - The program will load some default values based on previous step, but you can replace those default values if you want.
  • VC parameters - You can make the game full screen and edit the ingame pattates for both normal and green modes.
    • Normal mode pallete - The one you'll see by default.
    • Green effect mode pallete - The one you'll see when you change mode by pressing L+R+Y.

Press the Finish button to generate the CIA file. Then you can install it using any CIA manager.









  • Added: Now when you change the palletes ingame the pallete swapping splash icon will have the properly pallete color. (see this)
  • Added: Option to make an injection with the new Virtual Console (that one which has no savestates and supports Link Cable if you have the correct game patches for that). Thanks to @Traiver.
  • Fixed: Override the imported icon.bin flags with another ones, so the game will show on the activity log, and the parental controls won't be a problem.
  • Fixed: Now everytime you open a new gbc rom, the program will auto-generate a new random Title ID and product code.
  • Added: Option to make 160x144 (GBC pixel perfect original) screen without pressing START or SELECT (but with black borders).
  • Added: Game recognition. Most of official roms (non hacks/translated roms) now will be recognized and it'll auto-complete game name and publisher.
  • Added: Automatic title screen and/or box cover download. Thanks to @natinusala.
  • Added: Now the random Title ID's won't match an eShop app Title ID.
  • Added: Progress bar on step 4.
  • Added: Now you can write two separate lines in the banner text with custom font and size for each one. Asked by @dbzkamehameha.
  • Added: VC SoundMultiSample option. With this you can enhance the VC audio quality. Useful if your inject makes bad sounds. Reported issue by @dbzkamehameha & @angelhp and solved by @angelhp.
  • Added: Now you can choose the message that we will see in the Home Menu when closing the game after suspending. Asked by @noctis90210.
  • Added: Native IPS patching. Now you can apply an IPS patch directly before making the CIA. Useful for use with GBA enhanced patches (just an example, any IPS patch will work).
  • Fixed: Support for Windows XP (Now it uses Framework 4.0).
  • Got rid of the interpolation mode selection.
  • Better quality icon and banner resizing.
  • Fixed the ampersands missing on the game name.
  • Fixed the bug that causes line breaks on the Title name and publisher to become question marks.


  • Added: Now you can specify a short game name when making the icon of the CIA.
  • Fixed: Now the injections should be region-free (not tested).
  • Fixed: Now the parental control won't be a trouble.
  • Fixed: Support for 32 bits operative systems.


  • Initial release.
