WiiBuilder 1.0 formerly known as GRRLIB Converter is a Windows software to use for Wii homebrew development.


The File tab is use to:

  • Convert Portable Network Graphics (.png) to C array in header file (.h), works with GRRLIB 3.0 and libwiisprite
  • Convert Images (.gif, .bmp, .jpeg or .jpg) to header file (.h), works with GRRLIB 2.0 or less
  • Convert XML (.xml) to C array in header file (.h)
  • Convert GRRLIB 2.0 (or less) screenshot (.grr) to Portable Network Graphics (.png)
  • Load Wii executables files (.dol) from a computer to a Wii with the Homebrew Channel, IP address must be entered in the Settings
  • Compile Makefile to (.dol and .elf), you must have "make" available in your path

You just need to drop a file in the list box. If drag-and-drop is not working (Wine), you could simply right click on the list box to bring the popup menu. From the menu, select Add a File to the List..., in the Open dialog box you could select multiple files. If you don't want to open the software, just drag-and-drop files on the program icon. This is because the software accepts command line, just type WiiBuilder myfile.png. When the files are generated, they overwrite existing ones.
