    Hello everyone, the title says it all. I've sorted my ROMs in subfolders according to system, but I only get the first 257 files listed. Is this a known limitation?

    One of the previous updates added folder sorting, so yes, there's a known limit on files per folder. It was in a previous changelog on the exact number, but it would be a good thing if that information was included in the manual. In any case, simply make more subfolders.

    Also, I'd be curious to know if you have any issues with save corruption. Previously I had a lot of trouble when I used a 64GB exfat Kingston. Would be interested in knowing if Samsung Evo behaves any different.

    Only that the source was released, so now we can confirm max folders is 256, and a little farther down max files is 512. There's no simple way to substantially expand this as all the names are loaded into RAM to be sorted, each name can max out at ~100 characters, and there's only 256KB(+32KB) total ram.

    Hello.:)

    You can put 512 files per folder IF you use FAT32 filesystem ! It takes maybe a few seconds to load.

    I ended using FAT for my old 2GB Class 2 micro SD card, and the default allocation size, and all the issues I had with FAT32 went away. Everything doesn't freeze and crash now!
