    It works fine. Are you sure you know how to handle apps without GUI? Use full path to files and .exe's and make sure there is no spaces along the way.

    I'm adding 3DS support to my trimmer, new version 3.0 will be out very soon (sometime this week).

    Will it trim Card2 games especially the VC games?

    What do you mean?

    For instance, can it trim Pokemon.Yellow.GBC.VC.3DS-BigBlueBox to a much smaller size instead of just 64mb

    Ok I will check with that one. Trimmed size can be max ~50% for any rom.

    Not for VC games. They can be trimmed to approx 5mb but somehow saves won't work. If you can make it trimmed to about 10mb and have saves working that will be awesome

    It's possible, it just involves more modification of the header than most games... I have one trimmed GBC rom that is like 7 MB's, and it loads and saves fine.

    Not that I know of. I tried doing it myself and it didn't work. The one I have is Super Mario Deluxe that I was given as a test, I didn't do the modifications myself.

    Seems like quite a nuisance if you need to first load the untrimmed rom once.
