Could you make a better NSBMD and NSBTX importer? When ever i modify or simplify a texture for a custom track i'm making MKDSCE just hangs and after a bit and stops working and just loads endlessly the same thing happens to arctus.

For me, it was the texture mappings getting f***ed up and exporting as separate textures due to apparently being distorted.

How much textures do you have? And how big (image size WxH not file size)?
If you use too much and/or too big textures or textures with wrong sizes, you can get all kinds of problems and bugs.

I desperately, TOTALLY need your help or I'm going to fall into a pit of despair.
So I used you-know-which tool to generate CTEX file, but it gave me an XML file instead, so it's pretty meh, but that's not the point.
I tried to open some files in Hex Editor and then use EFE to dump it to PNG and BMP.
It worked great at first, I wanted to make my own tool which will convert 3-byte BMP to 4-byte 3DS graphic file. Buut theeen I opened another file that was 22x22.
Everything displays perfectly in EFE
I dump it, save as BMP, open in Hex Editor... It's ~1550 bytes.
...the 3DS graphic file is 4096 bytes.
THE FUCK.
And then I dumped a 32x32 file, this time everything worked right... Until I opened the PNG file in Gimp and compared the file to Hex Editor.

THE.
FUCK.
Please, lead me to the documentation of this file format or implement editing in your tool, I'm really desparate ;_;

CTEX Files are, in fact, XML Files.
You'll need to Convert them to BCTEX Files, in order to make them Binary.

Uhhh, I was talking about two things at once.
I was researching image format on 3DS by extracting the graphical files from EFE and opening them and Hex Editor and then dumping it and converting to BMP for reference. And from what I found, I just can't understand the file structure. On one hand, 22x22 file acts like it has 4096 bytes/1024 pixels (32x32 wtf) and on the other hand, one file filled with transparency on the borders doesn't seem to have transparency inside that graphical file (shown in screenshot). Any hints on the compression method or something?

22x22 are padded to 32x32 internally. (because of 8x8 blocks and 2^x and stuff)
EFE crops them to the right size.

Did you, by any chance, used WinRAR, or WinZIP, or 7ZIP (or similar), to Extract EFE?
I'm using Windows' built-in Unzip Utility, which does cause the problem.

I'm using the same thing that you are. I also use Windows 7 Ultimate.
