    Hmmm, interesting. A few notes for comparison:

    1. I'm using .jpg files as well, don't have anything that is .gif, so no difference there.
    2. The files I have origionally came in .cbr format, not .cbz, so that is how I've been using them. The .cbr files have not been working.
    3. If I try to directly rename the file extension from .cbr to .cbz, then run them through the converter, it doesn't work, it just sits for about 2 minutes doing nothing, then goes back the the "create nds files" button.
    4. If I unpack the files from my .cbr into a folder, then zip the folder into a .zip file, then rename the extension to .cbz, it works, and the files are the correct size.
    Alternatively, if I take that same .cbz file and change the extension to .cbr, when I run it through the converter, I end up with 448KB files that don't work.


    EDIT:
    Holy CRAP!! I just figure something out after doing some more testing:
    If I extract the files to a folder first, and use the converter with the "Add folder" option to convert them, the files are 10MB when finished (the exact same size as the original files in the folder). If I use the .cbz file I created, when the files are converted, the resulting .nds file is 20MB, twice the size of the other one!!! That's messed up!





    Looks like there are still some decent bugs left in the program, but for a v1.0, I'd say he's still done a wonderful job, and I'm very pleased.

    Thank you, I've already read it all - it's very good.
    I hope the author gets his comic published soon! [​IMG] he deserves it!

    What does this do that DS Organize doesn't do better already? It's much more convenient to just drop the jpeg files onto your CF card than to convert them first, isn't it?

    It's like printing a book on your printer and reading it (a highspeed printer, 3 pages per second). Or go to the localstore which takes 1min (and hands out free books ;P) and get the book instead.

    This softwares purpose IS for reading comics on your nds and has alot of good features to do so compared to ds organize. You might wanna try it. DS organize does it job well for reading comics, but this programs purpose of life IS for reading comics.

    Hopefully something makes sense of what I wrote [​IMG]

    Make sure you copy the sc.nds file from the NDS directory over to your G6 lite. The others won't work. I've been using the U-disk manager to do this and it works fine. Also file size looks to be an issue. I believe someone said it needs to be under 32MB. I haven't tested but i've had issues with files around 50MB.

    Happy comicking [​IMG]

    This program is great although it's still pretty buggy. I've found it locks up when pushing buttons in a random order. If you're bored and have nothing to do [​IMG] , try pushing all the buttons on your DS randomly, it will lock up.

    I find the controls a bit hard to get used to. I used the little scroll feature with the enlarged screen on the left (DS sideways). I'd like to be able to go to the next picture but I seem to have to go back to the index and scroll to the next picture. It'd be nice if I could just push R and go to the next pic without loosing my setup.

    Great program though [​IMG]

    If you hover your stylus at the bottom right cornor, a hand icon will pop which you can select to get to the next page. Left corner, to go to the previous page, top right to 'duel screen' and top left to go back to index.

    The controls are explained under the "OVERVIEW and DUAL SCREEN MODES controls" section at the official site.

    Not really... [​IMG]

    Well, I guess I'll have to try this to compare but I'm too lazy at the moment. Isn't there anyone who has used both and can give a comparision? From the screenshots it looks like they control exactly the same... Does this also let you turn pages with L & R? Is it faster or slower when loading the next page? Is it just useful for carts that don't work with DS Organize or does it have any special features that make it worth all the effort of converting your comics to an .nds file?

    for some of us dsorganize doesnt work very well , well actually it works fine just wont save so we dont bother installing it ( not the authors fault). if your just looking to read comics and dont want to or cant use dsorganize then this is the thing for you. as far as converting goes its easy as pie. open the app load your comic and hit convert .. done . put file on cart and enjoy.l&r function as stated on website along with other button functions is .
    OVERVIEW and DUAL SCREEN MODES controls:

    If you click one of the corner of the touch screen, an icon will be displayed (during approximately a second).
    Each icon has a particular action:

    next page
    previous page
    switch between OVERVIEW and DUAL SCREEN modes
    switch to the THUMBNAILS mode

    You can move the stylus on the touch screen to change the displayed area.
    The pad can also be used to change the displayed area (ABXY buttons allows a slower scroll).
    While being on the right of the image, pressing the right key will move the visible area to the bottom on the left (and conversely while going on the left)
    While being in bottom on the right, and going on the right, the next page will be displayed (the previous one is displayed while being at top left and going on the left)


    At anytime:

    * The L button switches between the 3 different view modes
    * The R button switches from portrait mode to landscape mode
    * The SELECT button changes the luminosity of the DS
    * The START button displays various information (like the program version)

    The .gba file works great on the EZ4, until you press the select button.
