Deprecated program. Superseded by Yarhl

Don’t judge the code, I wrote the whole program while learning programming 😄

Tinke is a program to see, convert, and edit the files of NDS games. You can see a lot of format files like images, text, sounds, fonts and textures. Furthermore it works with plugins made in NET Framework languages (C# and VB.NET) so it’s so easy to support new formats.


  • Show the ROM header with the banner and edit it.
  • Show and convert to common format a lot of files.
  • Edit a lot of image files from BMP files (NCLR, NCGR, NSCR, NCER), audio files from WAV (SWAV, SWAR, STRM) and fonts (NFTR).
  • Hexadecimal visor.
  • Change the content of the files and save the new ROM.
  • Translated to multiple languages.
