    Sorry if this has been asked before - I have seen other topics on it and still cannot get my ROMS sorted alphabetically.

    I have tried setting sortListAlpha=1 (I read that this is alphabetical acending) in the global settings and it doesn't appear to work, even when I switch between flie list styles in the interface settings. Sorry to be a complete noob but if someone could explain quickly I would very much appreciate it. Currently my ROMS appear in what appears to be a random order which is a tad messy.

    Thanks.

    Yeah - I opened it in notepad, changed it and saved. Even if I left it as zero though I would have thought that would sort it alphabetically (just descending). But my list is nothing like alphabetical. I'm sure I am missing something really stupid here...

    ... ah if I change to list by file name I can see that it is sorted alphabetically - but the release number at the front is throwing it off. So I guess it is working I just (incorrectly) expected it to ignore the number (especialy when viewing by internal name). I guess this is just how it works!

    Dont know what is the problem...

    If your game names start with NUMBER - they are alpabeticaly on the first place...

    SO it looks like this...
    1234-gamename.nds
    1235-gamename.nds
    gamename1.nds
    gamename.nds

    Someone this asked in oficial akaio forum, so the only way to sort it well is RENAME your NDS files...

    anothergamename.nds
    gamename 01.nds
    gamename 02.nds
    xygamename.nds
    etc...

    Yep you are right - I figured it out just now before reading your post. Many thanks for the reply though - it's appreciated.

    If you use ndstokyotrim it removes scene numbers automatically for you when trimming.
