    I was wondering if there's a list of ROMs that work trimmed on the DSTT(I'll be using tokyotrim). I'm hoping to eliminate the trial and error part of the process.

    And by trimmable I mean can be trimmed with no issues.

    Uhh... everything? You have to find a good trimmer though that wont trim data on something like let's say, WiFi.

    Also you cant Trim patched games from my experience.

    All roms except one can be trimmed (Can't remember which one, though - it's some Japanese one.)

    Patched games can be trimmed fine, if the author of the patch updated the header properly.

    Not on the DSTT, if you've noticed.

    Gonna give Tokyotrim a shot, as it seems to be the most highly recommended.

    By "patches" they mean translation patches and other ROM patches that people sometimes apply by hand to modify the ROM, not DLDI patches (which the DSTT does automatically).

    Very few flash carts actually trim the ROMs (nor would you want them to in most cases). Tokyotrim does a good job of trimming ROMs without removing important data.

    If you want a full-featured program for organizing your ROMs that can also do trimming, use a program like Rominator (I've never had problems with ROMs trimmed by Rominator).

    I use TinyTrimmer for trimming all of my games. It is very fast (trimmed 50+ roms in about a second), easy to use, and my roms always work. You just drag, drop, and hit "Trim" and you're done.

    Here's a gbatemp link: Tiny Trimmer
