    Hi

    Ive got about 50 or so games on my M3 real. When i bootup first time into the menu, my games are in no particular order. Ive found out that by clicking on the NAME text at the top will organise these first into Z-A order, then clicking again into A-Z order. But i find this fiddly, doesnt always work despite clicking on it numerous times. Is there a way i can get these games into order all the time?

    Sorry if im missing something really simple but i cannot find anything on this

    Cheers

    I have had my real for a few weeks now and noticed this after adding a few games this past week. I did delete all games and readd them. That made them in the proper order but is such a pain. I think and was hoping in the new 2.8 they would have fixed this. Is there anyway we can suggest this be fixed or added as a feature? Clicking on name only works if you move off the first game icon. it doesnt work right away and it is such a pain...

    Tab on 'name' to sort your games.

    It doesnt seem to work every single time you click on NAME. It works 50/50 for me so far. Anyway to auto sort by name in a future release?

    Thanks!

    people want an auto-sort, at the moment every time you boot it up it defaults to showing the games in the order they were added to the cart.

    That's right. M3 and Supercard Slot-2s will read the filelist in the order it is in the FAT (Usually the order they were added to the card). Don't like that order?

    FatSort

    Then sort your FAT!

    Hooha!

    This is not an ideal solution. "name" to sort from default sort order makes the list Z-A you then have to do it again to get A-Z. Why not A-Z by default ?

    It only works on Fat16. If your card is FAT32 then it wont see it. That was the problem I had.
