    Harness the Power of your CycloDS!

    A very useful tool for anyone who owns a CycloDS made by Shane R. Monroe.

    Whether you're a power or novice user of the CycloDS Evolution flash cart, you can use CycloEdit to harness the FULL power of your backup solution.

    CycloEdit
    A CycloDS Evolution Configuration Editor
    By Shane R. Monroe
    http://www.monroeworld.com/cycloedit

    NOTE: THIS IS STILL BETA SOFTWARE! BACKUP THE CONFIG.XML FILE BEFORE MESSING WITH IT WITH THIS TOOL!

    What is it?
    This tool is used to edit the configuration file on the CycloDS Evolution for those that prefer GUI tools instead of messing with editing XML files.

    The tool also does a global backup of your .SAV files from ALL folders and puts them neatly into a date/time stamped folder on your hard drive.

    Finally, a skin manager lets you select, preview (to some degree), delete, backup and add (soon) skins to your card.

    What is required?
    You will need .NET runtimes installed. Chances are, you already have them installed. Just run the .EXE file and you'll know.

    How to use it
    Plug your microSD card into the PC and run this program. You will need to choose your microSD drive from the drop down. Once you do, it will load the config file and populate the form. Make your changes, and hit save. It's pretty simple. You can launch the skin manager with the button next to the selected skin.

    Version Information

    V0.98b - Advanced Analysis
    - Advanced analysis is completed. I haven't hand counted the files to be 100% positive it's right, but I belive it is. This will be IT for v1.0. Once I'm sure there is nothing glaring, we'll go 1.0 RC1 and finally 1.0. THEN we'll start adding features. [​IMG]

    V0.97b - microSD Card Stats
    - The application has been expanded even further; giving you a more detailed look at your microSD Card. Set up code and locations for detailed breakdowns.
    - Added more links and credits (as I said I would [​IMG]

    V0.96b - Skin Manager Redux
    - There has been some aesthetic changes to the application; the skin manager is no longer it's own window, but rather a pop out pane from the main app. Preview window continues to be it's own window.
    - Misc fixes and code optimizations.

    V0.95b - Add Skins
    - Preliminary support for adding skins. Download skins in ZIP format (i.e. NDSThemes.com - remember, CycloDS format only). Run CycloEdit, hit the skin manager, push the Add Skin button. Select the Zip. Done.

    V0.94b - Core changes, fixes
    - Went through a bunch of restructuring (this is what happens when you don't use design documents, eh?), which will probably bring some regression bugs, but let's hope not.
    - I'm doing partial skin.xml parsing to get the top and bottom screens now - should be no more of this "Can't load screen" nonsense
    - I've also handled the SKIN/SKINS folder name issue. That required a bit of rework all around, but seems to be working.
    - The mysterious path bug should be gone - savbackup and skinbackup should be right with the exe now.
    - The cheats file is unhidden now so it shouldn't flag any more errors when you download the cheat file.

    V0.93b - Skin Manager Begins!
    - Added a button to launch the skin manager.
    - Double click a skin for a preview (just screen backgrounds for now).
    - You can set a default skin now.
    - You can Delete skins (with optional backup).
    - Couple minor things...

    V0.92b - Backup SAV files and more
    - Backup SAV files now works! If there is a naming collision on your save files (like f:\games\Shane\AnimalCrossing.sav and f:\games\Bryan\AnimalCrossing.sav) the first one found will be saved as the name, the others will get a random number placed on the front (i.e. 456AnimalCrossing.sav). I will work out a more elegant solution later.
    - Add some error checking for downloading the cheat file.
    - Added a kludgy but somewhat functional progress indicator for downloading cheat and backing up savs. more elegant later.
    - Fixed the bug where ROM name listing item wasn't saved properly.
    - Fixed the bug where a HIDDEN config.xml file wouldn't save (application will change it to -h and not re-hide it; however if the CycloDS folder is hidden, it will stay as such).

    V0.91b - Download cheats!
    - I was intrigued by a request to download and install the latest cheat files from srBLOG! Again, no error handling yet, but it appears to work
    - Apparently, if the CycloDS folder is HIDDEN, we get an error; I'll fix that next release.

    V0.9b - First public beta release
    - Everything should work, but not a lot of error checking has been done.

    Saw this couple of days ago but wasn't sure if it'd be good...

    Guess I should test it now.

    Looks good. I'm not really into using this kind of applications, as I hardly put new stuff into my card(try to get as many things at the same time), but I'll give it a shoot, it might save some time from getting the cheat files and other stuff done.

    v0.99 works very well. I especially like the fixed up cheats database updater. [​IMG]

    seeing this on the homepage: another new card with pretty nice done pictures makes me get in a good mood. i already have some cards, but when seeing newer type-0-s appear i see how charming/dainty you people introduce such, it makes me calm how better things work now.
