    [​IMG] GBArms NewsHere are some great news for all GBArms users! After reading this, you should definitely be using it!

    All screenshots, NFO and boxarts are now available for ALL games! ViNcZ from Planete-GBA has been working all the week, he has found out, taken & uploaded all missing screenshots and boxarts and NFOs... You can now download all those, since they're hosted on a free host with unlimited bandwidth! Just note that GBArms 3.0.1 might have errors with some boxarts... don't worry, it's been fixed.

    • Here's a nice GBArms 32 preview! The first screen shows the new improved layout; the second one shows the rating system working fine; the third screen shows screens for game #1013 - now they're available for all games; the 4th one shows an HTML page generated with the "Export" function - check the page here; and the last one shows the main window translated in french with the translation system.

    Click on a picture to enlarge it. Also note that GBArms 32 will also have its own rom renamer, with the "rename-inside-zips" feature thanks to Vinpire (man, you rock!)

    • As GBArms may grow more important because of all this, I've decided to start a new board entirely dedicated to GBArms. It's in english, of course; and I post the URL as soon as the board is ready.

    have you noticed the new "Missing" screenshot? I must say thanks to ZiapaT from Playeradvance [​IMG]
    and by the way... at first, this version was supposed to be v3.1, but people kept getting confused with 3.0.1 (they thought it was already v3.1)
    then I decided to call it "v3.2"... and I finally thought v32 was even better! [​IMG]
    dont worry, next version will be v4 (or v3.3) and not 33 or 34!

    Great work Costello. [​IMG] This is great! The voting function looks great and works even better! [​IMG]
    The HTML export function is useful too!

    so, you first make version 3.0.1 then version 32, then version 4?
    how is that less confusing?
    call it 3.1.1 or 3.2 instead

    I reckon it's confusing if you dont know that...
    - v3.0.1 = v3.1 in people's mind
    - v3.2 = 32
    - next version = v3.3 (or v4.0, depending on the features I'll add)

    With all these new Boxarts/Screenshots/NFOs of the games, will it be somehow possible to have some kind of display that shows you which Boxarts/Screenshots/NFOs are still missing ? [​IMG]

    And if want to backup the Boxarts/Screenshots/NFOs then you just have to save all those pngs/jpgs and the nfo directory in the gbarms dir, right ? [​IMG]

    The reason why I asked is that because I was (actually I still am) quite a n00b with your program I didn't change the dir for the Screenshots and Boxart, so now I got a few thousand files in the root dir of the app [​IMG]

    I guess if I change the location for these files now, then the already d/l-ed files won't be moved by the program ?

    Thanx a lot for your good work [​IMG]

    no, i think you're missing my point...
    i mean, instead of calling it v32, call it v3.2
    there's no reason to call it v32 except if it is a 32bit version, which it most likely is anyways.
    kinda like mirc32.exe

    otherwise you go from v3.0.1 to v32 and back to 3.3 or 4.0 again
    THAT is confusing.
    you should stick to ONE kind of version naming, or else people get confused.
    if people get confused while you're still sticking to the same namingconvention, it's cause they're idiots...
    who doesn't get that 3.1.0 is a newer version that 3.0.1?
    all i'm saying, don't go from X.Y.Z to XY and then back to X

    All you need to do is arrange icons by type, and view files by thumbnails. Sort out which are boxart, which are screen shots and which are title screens. You'll need to manually move them, but it shouldn't take longer than 15 mins or so to sort everything out [​IMG]
    Then just change the folder path in GBArms for where they download to.

    Sounds like some awesome additions there, and so glad to be able to get all current boxart. Have you got replacement boxart for-

    0236 - Game Shark GBA (U)
    0237 - Xploder Advance (E)
    0651 - Barbie Groovy Games (E)
    0958 - Pink Panther Pinkadelic Pursuit (U)
    1442 - Animal Snap - Rescue Them 2 By 2 (U)
    1444 - Antz Extreme Racing (U)

    They seem to be the only odd ones I could find.

    Hmm, is the database going to be updated soon, The latest release in my list is 1479, and just says "No new releases" when I try to update.

    great news, costello! even my name is mentioned at the ratings tab! wohoooooo! [​IMG]

    i also think a function where you can see your missing pics would be useful, as a download through all your pics (with skip existing selected) costs about half an hour or more....

    glad to hear that the zip function makes it into the next release.....

    can't wait to download this masterpiece.....
