    hi i was wondering if u can delete the (E) or (U) or whatever it is at the end of a NDS or GBA rom? can you also delete the numbers at the start of the name? if you do what will it do?

    File names don't have any effect on the actual game. [​IMG]

    They're just part of the filename, they don't impact on how your flash card runs them in any way at all. If you have a lot of them, you might find it more convenient to use a ROM manager than to do it by hand, I can recommend OfflineList.

    Do you know of an equivalent of that program for NDS ROMs?

    Yep, RToolDS will automatically rename your ROMs for you. You can set flags that specify what to include or exclude in the ROM name (release number, region, release group, rom title, etc.) when you flash them to your card. If I'm not mistaken, Rominator has the same function.

    *EDIT*
    Had to edit the name "Rominator" because I used a different word that was the name of an illegal site [​IMG]

    Wow, I think I just moderated myself [​IMG]

    NO

    DON'T DO IT

    IT WILL SCREW UP THE GAMES IF YOU CHANGE THE FILENAME!

    The extension type is all that is necessary to be kept, the filename doesn't matter at all.

    As long as he changes the save files to math exactly the games, he'll be fine.

    He was being sarcastic.

    sarcasm doesn't really have a place in text messages since it depends heavily on the tone of the speaker [​IMG]

    OfflineList works fine with DS roms if you use a DAT like the one from ADVANsCEne.

    Rominator 2008 does this very nicely.

    Unfortunately it was a really awful attempt at sarcasm.

    Ok, some of the people here are getting off-topic. To combine everything you need into one easy post, as long as you keep the end of the file .nds you will be fine. If the game is Chrono Trigger and you name it fish.nds, it will still be Chrono Trigger when you load it up. The numbers and all that just tell you the game's index number (correct me if I'm wrong, anyone) and the letter like (E) or (U) is the region of the game. For example (U) is US, I believe and (J) is Japan. Hope this answers your question completely. [​IMG]

    And (E) is European. One thing I will add to this is that if you decide to change the name of a game it's very important to change the save files to the exact same name as the ROM. Otherwise you'll have to start the game all over! [​IMG]
