    Hi, i found chuckstudios released NDStation 1.2.1 and figured i'd give it a go, so my first backup game i'm trying is Metroid Fusion, i know i don't need to patch it for rodulph's expansion pack 3in1 and plays fine, but now i'm trying to use NDStation on Metroid Fusion and hit go, well i see its using just over 7mb of resources and 100% of one of my cpu cores, its been doing this for over 10mins, how long should it take to convert a gba game over using psram and compression?

    Thanks!

    Edit, tried 1.1 and it converted in about a second, then tried 1.2.1 w/o compression and completed in about a second as well, so how much time does compression take? hhhhhmmmmmmmmmm, maybe i'll fire up bioshock and play awhile and see if its finishes.

    ok, another update, after i tried without compression, then i tried again with compression, this time it worked in about 2 seconds to finish, so guess that answers my question.

    Original file size: 8MB
    NDStation 1.2.1 w/o compression: 16.2MB
    NDStation 1.2.1 w/ compression: 12.6MB
    NDStation 1.1: 8.21MB

    Whats up with the huge increase in filesize?

    That would be what we call a bug. [​IMG]

    Apparently the ROM is getting packed in there twice. I really need to get working on 1.3.
