    Is their a collection of DS box art using the no-intro naming scheme?

    I have 4000 DS box art, but are all numbered (0001 - 4000). Is their a way to convert them to no-intro naming?

    I am trying to setup Ds games in a frontend and the box art needs to be the same name as the roms.

    I used a number of programs to get the box art ranamed to no-intro naming. If anyone is interested I will post what I did.

    1. Run your roms through romcenter and rename using the latest "advanscene" dat
    2. Use artwork renamer (from screenshot archive website) to match up the roms to the box art images. This will add the names after the numbers for the images.
    3. Use "renamer" (den4b.com) to delete the numbers and "-" before the names.
    4. Rename the roms back to the no-intro names.
    5. Use "fatmatch" (from the GameEx forums, search for fatmatch) and match up the roms to the images. Choose "select best match" from "selecting options" and then click "rename"

    I have only done this for about 800 roms (I don't have all 4000+), but it should still work. Their might be a few images that are missing, but it should find more than 90% images to match your roms.
