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

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

- 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):
http://saso-labs.com/ds/?file=rtrim_7z

Or as self-extracting 7zip archive (377.07 KByte)

Constructive criticism and compliments are welcome

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.

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!

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

QUOTE said:
Some recent trimmers read the size of the actual rom which were written down at 4 bytes in the nds header, then they trimmed the rom to that size+136 bytes (for wifi data).

SOME ROMS ( 0040, 0132, 0192, 0318, 0357... ) MISS OR FAKE THIS VALUE.

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