    is there a gateway patcher that can inject multiple private headers at once rather then doing it one by one?

    it wouldn't be too tricky to create one, but no i don't think there is one.
    but, the chip manufacturer would be wrong in some games, i don't think we can guess it. the chip size we can detect, but i think the chip manufacturer has to be found by trial and error? (correct?)
    i guess i could make a python tool to do this though

    a user-built matching database could be made for the roms, maybe?

    definitely :|
    (but also is for each and every one doing the same thing on trial/error basis on their one^^)

    base it on the sky3ds template, the large majority of them have the correct manufacturer set

    (large majority -- so that means some are incorrect? ha)

    well they have been at times, but it only really matters for online games afaik, and im pretty sure they will of ironed out most/all of the initial bugs when they just filled it up with random data to boost their game count

    would also mean sky3ds team get to provide the updates for it too :P

    i like the sound of that :)
    maybe this weekend (maybe) i will make a tool that takes in a directory and finds all .3ds/.3dz files, renames them to .3dz if needed, and applies the correct header data based on an input header --- using the sky template as my information haha
    it should not take too long

    - the size of the rom is somewhere in the rom right, i won't have to rely on reading the filesize (which may be trimmed)?
