    Hi all,

    After installing CFW on my 3DS (thanks to this community for making this possible!) I started dumping my DS games with Hourglass9. I also dumped the save games with TWLSaveTool. Unfortunately Hourglass9 names the dumped files using the serial number of the cart (e.g. ARZE08.nds) and TWLSaveTool uses the internal name embedded in the code (e.g. MEGAMANZX.0.sav).

    Is there a list or database that correlates this information? I'd like to write a small tool to rename one of the sets of files. I came across this spreadsheet but I have no idea how reliable it is: http://sergio.silvestre.free.fr/KDO/DS/Jeux_NDS_20110103_VG.xlsm

    Thanks!

    That you can search? I am not aware of any.
    The serials and the like are noted
    http://www.advanscene.com/html/Releases/dbrelds.php?id=0587
    Equally you can always load a ROM into something like ndsts ( http://www.no-intro.org/tools.htm ) and view it.

    If you have not trimmed the ROM then it should match a CRC value and thus you can use one of the more normal dat programs like those of http://www.advanscene.com/ and http://datomatic.no-intro.org/index.php?page=download

    Technically the no-intro dat-o-matic download I linked has some serials in, snippet from it to see the code style
    Code:
    game (
    	name "Donkey Kong - Jungle Climber (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It)"
    	description "Donkey Kong - Jungle Climber (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It)"
    	serial "ABUP"
    	rom ( name "Donkey Kong - Jungle Climber (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It).nds" size 67108864 crc 26FEA497 md5 B23B64C40C742C89DEFAD1A4274D1274 sha1 4721D4532E3CEA518756FB01DD00C6025F88E92B )
    )
    
    game (
    	name "Donkey Xote (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It)"
    	description "Donkey Xote (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It)"

    	rom ( name "Donkey Xote (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It).nds" size 67108864 crc 6C8C03A6 md5 CFD1521BDB2788B4E03D665805917343 sha1 70153AF4EEB8A7F4DD058CAE9515261AD5537D98 )
    )
    
    game (
    	name "Doodle Hex (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It)"
