Features:
  • 82 new unique levels
  • Some texture modifications
  • Original and remixed music

Nah, this is fine. :3
It's about the amount of given info, really, not "more visually appealing".

Ofc, I tried to not make the thread ugly. XD

"Also, CEMU is pretty much in early stages and probably would take an absolute beast of a computer to perform even mildly decently on. That said, the project is going well."
Explain my shitty laptop running NSMBU at 60fps even if the RAM is full... ? :3
(When not recording, ofc, when recording it jumps between 30-60 fps)

However, yeah, these are some cool creations. It's nice that you've decided to put them into one thread for easy access. :)
Yep, thanks Mayro!
If I make a new theme, I'd like to post it here. ;)

I'll probably start advertising this board when I make future hacks. :D

Thanks for turning an exam discussion into discussing old memes
Np. :P
... although that was partly me to blame. XD
It was actually me who started it because I mentioned "Over 9000" first.

Anyway, it's waaay more amusing than discussing exams. :3

That said, this is a nice project. ^^
Fixed.

GTX Extractor is a tool which extracts textures from the GX2 Texture ('Gfx2' / .gtx file extension) format used in Wii U games, and saves them as DDS.

It can also convert DDS back to a .gtx file.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Supported texture formats:
-GX2_SURFACE_FORMAT_TCS_R8_G8_B8_A8_UNORM
-GX2_SURFACE_FORMAT_TCS_R8_G8_B8_A8_SRGB
-GX2_SURFACE_FORMAT_TCS_R10_G10_B10_A2_UNORM
-GX2_SURFACE_FORMAT_TCS_R5_G6_B5_UNORM
-GX2_SURFACE_FORMAT_TC_R5_G5_B5_A1_UNORM
-GX2_SURFACE_FORMAT_TC_R4_G4_B4_A4_UNORM
-GX2_SURFACE_FORMAT_TC_R8_UNORM
-GX2_SURFACE_FORMAT_TC_R8_G8_UNORM
-GX2_SURFACE_FORMAT_TC_R4_G4_UNORM
-GX2_SURFACE_FORMAT_T_BC1_UNORM
-GX2_SURFACE_FORMAT_T_BC1_SRGB
-GX2_SURFACE_FORMAT_T_BC2_UNORM
-GX2_SURFACE_FORMAT_T_BC2_SRGB
-GX2_SURFACE_FORMAT_T_BC3_UNORM
-GX2_SURFACE_FORMAT_T_BC3_SRGB
-GX2_SURFACE_FORMAT_T_BC4_UNORM
-GX2_SURFACE_FORMAT_T_BC4_SNORM
-GX2_SURFACE_FORMAT_T_BC5_UNORM
-GX2_SURFACE_FORMAT_T_BC5_SNORM

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Why so complex?

Wii U textures appear to be packed using a complex 'texture swizzling' algorithm, presumably for faster access.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

FAQ:
-How do I run this on my Mac/Linux (Ubuntu)?

You need to run it from source code.

-How do I run this from source code?

On Windows:
All you need is to install Python 3.4 or higher and open "gtx_extract.py" using python.exe.

Other platforms:
All you need is to install Python 3.4 or higher and run the command "python3 gtx_extract.py".

-How do I build the source code?

On Windows:
After installing Python 3.4 or higher, install cx_Freeze and open "build.py" using python.exe.

Other platforms:
After installing Python 3.4 or higher, install cx_Freeze and run the command "python3 build.py".

A faster C++ version of GTX Extractor, which is a tool that extracts textures from the GX2 Texture ('Gfx2' / .gtx file extension) format used in Wii U games, and saves them as DDS or BMP.

It can not convert DDS files back to a GTX files yet. :(

Supported texture formats:
-RGBA8_UNORM / RGBA8_SRGB
-RGB10A2_UNORM (Not supported in BMP ver)
-RGB565_UNORM (Not supported in BMP ver)
-RGB5A1_UNORM (Not supported in BMP ver)
-RGBA4_UNORM (Not supported in BMP ver)
-R8_UNORM (Not supported in BMP ver)
-RG8_UNORM (Not supported in BMP ver)
-RG4_UNORM (Not supported in BMP ver)
-BC1_UNORM / BC1_SRGB (DXT1)
-BC2_UNORM / BC2_SRGB (DXT3)
-BC3_UNORM / BC3_SRGB (DXT5)
-BC4_UNORM / BC4_SNORM (ATI1 / Not supported in BMP ver)
-BC5_UNORM / BC5_SNORM (ATI2 / Not supported in BMP ver)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Why so complex?

Wii U textures appear to be packed using a complex 'texture swizzling' algorithm, presumably for faster access.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Features:
-Extract GX2 Texture (.gtx) files!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Known bugs:
-If you are trying to convert a GTX file from a BFRES file, you might run into some trouble.
-You still can't create GTX files yet. :(

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

FAQ:
-How do I build this and what do I need?

Make sure you have an x64 version of gcc, and use the command:
"gcc -m64 -o gtx_extract gtx_extract.c"

-How do I use this?

Run the command "gtx_extract input output", where the input is your GTX file and the output
is your DDS file.
