    Yeah I'll do that for the next version. It will have 2 progress bars, 1 for each single file and ill treat each rom in a different way. Right now it could semi freeze during loading/writing (but still work) if you load/save the roms straight to the memory card, since some flash cards are still pretty slow. So next version will fix that and add some more features then I'll update the ss [​IMG]

    What's means WiFi detection?

    Does it trims Download Play / Multiplayer games too, and with the new Download Play fixed R4 Loader supports it?

    It trims games so that they do not interfere with the RSA code (or whatever it is). I think how they do this is that they leave a padding on the end of each wifi game just in case. AFAIK it makes no difference to R4s download play, but you can try and find out for everyone [​IMG]

    edit: if you mean the R4 loader thats coming in the future that supposedly fixes DP, maybe it will work with that. It works for Cyclo thats for sure

    1-wish it could aslo trim the roms that are patched on G6. u know, the g6's program patches the rom to be able to run 'em on DS, wish ur program could do that too since i dont usually store clean roms.

    2- as my experience, the size of trimmed rom is more likely to its RARed version, u know, how they rar the rom 3 or 4 times, maybe RAR uses a technic to not to store the empty or filled blocks.

    3-add a button to stop searching or so, sometimes it gets into like infinite loops.

    4- add radio buttons in left of ur list, so we can chose which roms we want to trim.

    5- improve logging in that text box.

    good job!

    edit:

    6- it would be nice if you add recursion for Zip (and RAR for ur future version) too, since i have ZIP files which have the actual rom inside another folder inside zip file and ur current version doesnt find it (beware of a bug which can happen here, do the recursion just certain steps or it may ...)

    7- nice blog u have! i really love Japan and i'm learning it (soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo SLOWly, but .. [​IMG] ) and i love the japanese stuff u have in ur blog. wish it wasnt SO hard to work/study in japan so i could come there. once i watched the stores that still sell old consoles and i started to cry ..., i know a idiom too, hanayori dango!

    Love this trimmer. I used to use it. But now I'm using EZTrim, since all my roms are in rar files.

    1- Forgive my ignorance, what's G6? [​IMG]

    3- err there is one.. however, if you load/write to the microSD straight it might semi-freeze during loading/saving due to the slow speed of the flash memory (it's still working though). I will fix that in the next version

    4- I will add that too, you'll be able to select straight from the listbox. Dunno why you'd want to skip trimming on some roms though [​IMG] It detects already trimmed roms and skips them.

    5- What would you like to be added in the log?

    6- That takes quite a bit more of work, I don't think I will add that anytime soon.

    7- Glad you like it [​IMG] It works more like a personal link resource etc for myself and friends. I am going back to Tokyo by Christmas. You don't really need to speak japanese though to go there and even stay; even though most japanese people don't speak good english you can still get around easily. If you wanna see some pics.. click on Tokyo http://www.techsuki.net/wonderland/index.py/Japan

    Some games have online play via wifi. There are 136 bytes after the rom which need to be preserved so that online play works. My app detects those and keeps that piece of the file.

    Is there a version without the background for non-paedophiles.
