    Hey guys I recently replaced my firmware for my original R4 with Wood R4 and I was trying to figure out how to change my .sav files to nds.sav but I wasn't able to figure out how.
    Can someone tell me how I can do this?

    Also can someone tell me how to hide the _rpg folder

    Sorry for these noob questions but I am still trying to figure out how everything works on windows 7

    to hide rpg folder right click properties and hide
    To rename:
    Create a bat with: ren .sav .nds.sav

    If he uses my batch file as linked above, that won't happen.

    It specifically will only rename .sav to nds.sav, it will not rename .nds.sav to nds.nds.sav

    So it doesn't show up as a accessible folder in the file manager.

    I used the bat ONCE, with a LONG file list, i still got .nds.nds.sav files. [​IMG]
    Maybe a windows hickup?
    (renaming can lead to a short pause in windows before file system is updated, therefor still renaming twice for some files)
    EDIT: i see there is also an renamer.exe now [​IMG]


    Anyway, i also made a tool to do the same thing, maybe someone likes it. (just 44 kb).
    no problems with .nds.nds.sav files, and renaming from .nds.sav, .sav and .bak and vice versa, use it if you want an alternative (it is for windows, so no bat files or commandline. works on windows7 too)
