Default Searching for viable NDS hacking documents


I'm looking for all documents pertaining to NDS Hacking. Documents relating file formats and all of the like. I haven't been able to find more then info here and there. Along with decryption info for all 4th gen games. I know that the encryption varies and such.

Thanks for the help.

I might as well jump in here, being one of PHO's major DS Hacking whizzes.

The most basic formats you'll find are .NSBMD (3D Models), .SDAT (Which contain .SSEQ (Sound Sequencce), .STRM (Stream), .SWAV (Sound Wave Archive), and .SBNK (Soundbank) files, all being audio-related), and your basic arm7 and arm9 binaries. There's all sorts of formats that the games themselves have, and it varies from game to game, so it's difficult to really get all the different formats. I do have a few links here that can get you started, though. And if I can get what I want, I'll PM you some other information as well.

SDAT Documentation:
NSBMD format:
And a program that's open-source that you might find of use: (It has support for a ton of basic NDS formats, you might find some use of it)

As for decryption, I don't have anything on it, but if you peek at Project Pokemon, they should have a bit of information on the decryption - they did make PPRE a thing.

Thank you for your time, PHO. I won't soon forget it.
