    I just installed the Wood RPG firmware. So, I am going about cleaning up my R4 system files. I don't know what I can and cannot delete. I was wondering if anyone could help me out. My file hierarchy looks like this:

    /.Trash-1000
    /_rpg
    /_system_
    /DATA
    /font
    /fonts
    _DS_MENU.DAT
    _DS_MENU.NDS
    _DS_MENU.SYS
    _DS_MSHL.NDS
    aplha6.diff
    cloud.pal
    copying
    fmod.dll
    iq-points
    link.pal
    xpa-mdsw.r00


    I have actually been wanting to delete some of these for awhile but didn't want to risk doing anything damaging. I tried Googling a few of them but couldn't find any info on them. I assume that the _DS prefixed files can be deleted due to them being R4 firmware files but I want to be absolutely certain. If anyone can help me out I'd appreciate it.

    I would format your card and install a fresh copy of Wood. Might make it run better, if it's been awhile since you've done it..

    Right on, thanks for all of the help, guys [​IMG]

    Yeah, it has been quite awhile before I changed anything on this card. I had been meaning to clean things up for some time now but just got around to doing now that Wood RPG has come out. I'll probably go ahead and do that.


    @mrgone: This card has never seen the inside of a mac for certain. I don't know where that file came from honestly. It has been there for as long as I can remember.
