    UPDATE to v1.02a (Full Changelog)
    - Fixed Shell Integration
    - Fixed "Append ROM Language" setting save bug
    Thanks to Rocky5


    I just want to show it to you and if anyone thinks it's usefull for him or her I reached my goal [​IMG]
    Unicode support is under development, but I think it still needs some time.

    It uses the exactly the same method as the M3 ROM-Trimmer v2.0 and is Download-Play compatible.

    It's multi-language (English/German) and runs without any installation.
    For USB portable mode read the included readme.txt

    Some features:
    - Batch trim (Drag&Drop as many .nds files and folder as you want)
    - Full Download-Play-Support (compatible with M3 ROM-Trimmer v2.0)
    - Shell Integration
    - No crappy skins - just a nice main window and default Win32 dialogs [​IMG]
    - Automatic renaming (Game Title, Language)
    - Rudimentary SAV management: Renames existing .sav only at "Direct Trim"

    Features under development:
    - Fix for faked/invalid ROM lengths
    - Unicode support
    - "Switch to portable mode" button to set up portable mode without user interaction
    - Shell Integration for multiple files

    Homepage: http://saso-labs.com/ds/?rtrim_en
    or for German speaking people: http://saso-labs.com/ds/?rtrim

    Current version: v1.02a

    Download as 7zip archive (246.97 KByte):

    Thanks [​IMG]

    This software is complete for my purpose, but if anyone wants a specific feature I will try to implement it asap ^^

    Translations for any language other than English or German are welcome - just translate one of the included *.lng files. As only restriction you have to use a non-unicode charset.

    It would be great to have an "Trim this rom" in the right click menu. I never saw this option on any trimmer [​IMG]

    Your wish is my order [​IMG]
    Updated to Version 1.02 with Shell Integration.

    Let me know if I can optimize the handling (e.g. close app after trimming?).

    OK, there seems to be a problem with the shell integration on "clean" systems,
    which never had a application associated with .nds files.

    The "Append ROM language" is a save bug which I had already fix long time ago oO

    I will fix these errors today after work.
    Thanks for you report!

    Brilliant works a treat thanks and thank your for this app.

    can i ask one for one thing to be implemented Batch trimming using the right click menu as you can only trim one file at a time with the right click menu.

    Thanks for this nice tool It is fine and smart but it fails the infamous Hero (J) Egg Test.

    Tested with the latest 1.02a the rom is trimmed to 512 bytes.

    See this (old) post for more technical infos on this problem

    Anyway i use it for context trimming i like the nice "portable" integration ;-)

    Thanks alot for this information!
    I will implement a workaround for this and if there's time I will write a more complex algorithm as seen in DSAccuTrim.
