    Hi all,

    I have found a way of sorting your roms out in the Gateway menu to your specific order:-

    1st. Download Fat Sorter http://fat-sorter.software.informer.com/

    2nd. Go to your drive and rename your roms to order say for example like this:-

    A Mario Tennis
    B Paper Mario
    C Zelda Link
    D Harmo Knight
    E..
    F..

    and so on, so if you want Mario Tennis first rename it at the beginning with the letter A and a space after when you name your rom, if you want Harmo Knight last on your list you name it D with a space after when you name your rom.

    Edit 17/06/14: If you have say named all your roms in your M-SD card and its full and you want to put a rom in between them, then just name it AB. Say for example up above between A Mario Tennis, B Paper Mario.. and you want to put in Mario Golf in between on your M-SD Card then name it AB Mario Golf or DA Mario Golf etc.. or wherever you want it. Its a cool handy little method, just remember to use fatSorter when you have finished to confirm the selection :)

    3rd. Start up the Fat Sorter app highlight your Micro-SD drive in the browse box and then just click on Sort.

    Job done, your roms now should be in the correct order you want them in your multirom menu :)

    just for people who didn't know yet, you can use L and R to move across 5 roms at a time in the multi rom select menu :)

    I didn't know that, good to know! To be fair, I haven't really needed to use the multi-ROM menu much since I got Pokémon Y for free from the eShop so I've just been playing that almost non-stop for like a month.

    Didn't know that either. I thought having a horizontal menu wasn't the best move but this makes sense now.

    Sorry didn't realize that, I had not looked until just then, if I knew that I would not of posted the thread.

    But then again tbh on a second look it does not explain how to do it, it just gives a link to the fat sorter app that could lead you down a tunnel of hows and scratchy heads. In fact someone who did not know the app first time using it just pressing sort would not work at all and do jack, they would not know what they were even doing with it at least I have explained in detail how and now!

    who is we? keep in mind some people didn't even know that you had to press select to bring up the menu, so don't reply like that when someone helps others
