    Does it can use Offline List's GBA.DAT file?

    I do have all my 601 roms recognized by OL, and I'd like them to be recognized by this software... is it possible?

    If Offline List recognizes it, GBArms will as well. I can promise you that from my own personal experience. I, at least, haven't experienced any exceptions to that. I BELIEVE (but can't promise) that it runs off of its own Dat that it downloads. It does work with Offline List screenshots, or you can download them through the prog. itself.

    It's all very well having this management system, but what about if you don't have many ROMs? I just download ROMs that interest me, I don't have the whole collection and I don't plan too. It's just that is this programme worth it for me? [​IMG]

    If you have 100 or more, I would say it's worth it to you. You can set it to show only those ROMs that you actually have, and with screenshots and NFO downloads, it can really make deciding what games to play worth your time. Besides, it's a tiny program, really. [​IMG]

    Opinion issues

    1 - It doesn't remember windows diomension, everytime starts windowed not full screen as needed

    2 - Well done for the different tabs for different things (boxart, nfo,.. etc) but there should be a main one with all the info in one to have a complete view on the rom, there is space so why don't put it

    3 - Downloding images should be set also in the way that puts each image in different folder (gbafront style), i mean there might be two ways of downloading, one like now (if someone likes it) and one that puts each image in the right folder (box/snap/title) with just the number as name and not with t s or x at the end; I think this way is better and more ordinate.

    4 - Clicking on the name of the rom on the top of the tabs or a button on the right side (opposite of flag) with the Play function could be useful


    5 - Resource downloader scroll bar in the downloading tab should go down as new files are downloaded and not be stuck where you leave it (as in the logs of burning progs for example where it comes down as new things appens).


    Lemme know what you think of this considerations Costello, even if stupid [​IMG] pls
    btw, great job [​IMG]
    If i think of something else i'll post

    that's OK, I have fixed some problems.
    Now update the romdat
    (File / Update list / The whole romdat , or Ctrl+F12)

    I have checked the GBAFront's romdat and all the CRCs match now.

    If some of your roms are not recognized, please tell me here

    the CRC is a number which is different for every file.
    A CRC is calculated from each byte of a file, so if you change even 1 little byte of your rom, the CRC will be different.
    So if you have "bad-crc" roms, it means you have the rom but it has been modified by some other software.
    dont worry if your roms are "bad-crc" [​IMG]

    for example if you remove the intro of a rom, or just apply a patch to it, then the rom will be "bad-crc".

    Costello: can you add a feature about selecting several pictures folders? (offline list snapshots are divided into several folders: 1-500, 500-1000, 1000-1500, etc)

    Also, can it be a feature about showing all having roms (including bad CRC) at the same time?

    Y'know, Costello, it would be nice to be able to play the game by simply double-clicking on the game name in the lists instead of having to right click and select 'play'...I like double-clicking...

    Can you make a "switchable" compatibility with Offline List's GBA.DAT CRCs?

    Pleesss [​IMG]

    What about pictures folders and available roms view?

    and my suggestions?

    - extract rom directly out of gbarms
    - sram patch rom
    - trim rom
    - separate folder for boxart, screenshot, titleshot
    - download missing files (screenshots, nfos,....) automatically

    3 short questions:


    a) Could it be possible to make the pictures (box/snap/...) compatible with GBAfront?? - I mean they are named different (with x, s or t behind the number) so simply put my already loaded pics from GBAfront to this nice little program won't work).

    b) Does it only recognize all releases with numbers?? - Because for example the game "Nights into Dreams ~Score Attack~.gba" has no number but GBAfront lists it?!

    c) Can a feature like in the original GBA-Renamer be implemented to ZIP the ROMs and rename 8after renaming)??

    As I wrote no. But it's the only release of it. Here's a link to the release (CLICK HERE)


    And a third little question about the rename feature: Can a feature like in the original GBA-Renamer be implemented to ZIP the ROMs and rename (after renaming)??
