can someone plese tell me
Obviously a bit short of "8000/64" games in 64Mb size. That's 125 games, but don't forget the firmware and space for skins, etc. There aren't that many 64Mb games around anyway..
Actually, 8Gb is only 1 Gigabyte. Or 1024 Megabyte. The most that it could possible fit is 16 of your 64MB games, but then you have to think about the file format, and the loader.
You may get 15 games tops.
He said 64 Mb >_>
EDIT: Wait it's mb.. Hmm
ok, I see what you mean. Sorry.
@trelly08, what do you mean? MB or mb?
You have to be precise with your letter casing. The magic number for gamers is 8.
If you're saying 64 Mb|it roms, then you can put in 8192 Mb / 64 Mb = 128
If you're saying 64 MB|yte roms, then you can put in 1024 MB / 64 MB = 16
This is never the case because you will always need other files in order to run the games. I'm guessing the memory AMOUNT in the G6DS is not consistently the same in every cart, so it may hold even less.
Well he obviously means 64 megabytes How many 8 megabyte games are there anyway?
Just got my G6 Real in the post this morning - does it support compressed games (like the Lite's "rom trimming" option)?
You must trim the roms separately. The ROM itself does not any other special patching like the G6 Lite does. There are many trimming programs available (eg. Rominator, DSLazy, DSTokyoTrim)
It doesn't support compressed games (do any of them?)
But rom trimming isn't compression, it's snipping of the empty bytes that round the memory off to bit-boundaries: 1,2,4,8,16,32,64,128MB, it's all about addressing memory - if you have a 100MB program, you need a 128MB rom, with 28MB of empty space.
If you're thinking off asking why it isn't filled up with extra content, don't.
Anyway, rom trimming trims off the empty bits (when it's done properly) and rom trimmers have their own thread somewhere. Use the search.
19 Top's for me..I have 1GB of R4....So I have 19 Games on there
OK, I know what I meant but compression was completely the wrong term. I had a G6 Lite and the Manager had a rom trim option when I added games, but with this I just thought it supported "clean dumps".
It really doesn't make much difference to me.. The G6 range are great devices all round, the 16Gb version is huge with 2 whole gigabytes and I've had no homebrew issues with either the G6 Lite or the G6 DS.
