GXTConvert is a somewhat rudimentary converter for GXT-format textures used by games for the PlayStation Vita. It is written in C# and based on the .NET Framework.

Maintenance Note

GXTConvert is currently only receiving limited maintenance. Please see the Scarlet project for a more generic set of libraries and a sample converter application to convert various game or console image formats to PNG, including GXT.


  • General
  • .NET Framework 4
  • Compilation
  • Visual Studio Community 2013 (or higher)
  • Usage
  • Compatible files to convert


Syntax: GXTConvert.exe <inputs ...> [options]

  • <inputs ...>: Any number of files or directories to be converted, separated by spaces
  • [options]:
  • --output | -o: Specify output directory
  • --keep | -k: Do not overwrite existing output files

Example: GXTConvert.exe "C:\Temp\GXT\files\" "C:\Temp\GXT\testfile.gxt" --output "C:\Temp\GXT\output\"
