@KillzXGaming KillzXGaming released this Mar 28, 2019

Note this build is from last year and is very outdated. More stable builds will be created soon!

I decided to release an early beta release! Note this is very early and planned to be polished out more this month. I wanted to give this to hold people off till final!

If this program does not open, make sure to unblock the zip file then extract!

For textures make sure you install this if they do not show or crash!

Requires a minimum of .NET Framework 4.6 which you can get here

Planned v0.9 and v1.0

  • Rework UI completely many speed improvements and memory optimization. Keep most tasks in separate threads.
  • Add custom UI for exceptions, loading screens, and more.
  • Add proper loading bars for long tasks.
  • Add user data editor for bfres and bntx.
  • Finish Wii U support for NSMBU and fix Wind Waker HD from crashing.
  • Add animation importing for all types.
  • Update shaders to look better and finish support for PBR.
  • Improve audio player and make a custom one for bfwav and bfstm.
  • Parse shaders to get some useful data out of them.
  • Import bones for model importing.
  • Import textures included for model importing.
  • Create new bfres, fmdls, bntx, bea, sarc, etc from scatch.


v0.8.71 - 0.89

  • Fix saving switch bntx causing a crash (also from saving .bfres aswell)
  • Fix saving switch bntx files with 1 texture causing a crash.
  • Fix texture pattern animations from glitching.
  • Fix some issues with bad swizzling.
  • Fix kcl errors on latest.
  • Fix issues where editing attributes (calculating tangents, normals, uv flipping, etc) wouldn't save properly.
  • Update kcl lib to latest. May fix exploding issues.
  • Flip uvs automatically for csv model imports.
  • Add option to flip uv's for entire fmdl.
  • Fix exporting assimp models not opening in blender or max. Atm they need to be .dae, but should work fine for static models.


  • Added tex2 support for BOTW wii u. Need to select an existing tex2 file for now to replace the mip maps. Recreating them will be next update.
  • Fixed Wii U materials from saving improperly.
  • Added support for saving Wind Waker HD bfres.

  • Fixed some crash issues.
  • Fixed csv imports becoming invisible.
  • Fixed yaz0 compression not having alignment set. Should fix any issues with .szs saving crashing the game.
  • Fixed DDS mip generation to create the proper default count. Should allow png, jpg, etc to be compressed back into .nutexb as it's the same size.
