    Fixed some bugs in the program and also fixed the exe inside the archive files. I'd dropped the actual app exe instead of the installation file exe into them. Sorry about that!

    Usefull program, but there's one problem.
    When I seem to browse my rom collection using the classic browser and i click on a rom, it starts to unzip and stuff and then it shows information in the main window about the game and stuff.
    But if i sellected a game like that, how do i actually add it to my MicroSD? I can't seem to find any button or command for it. Or does it automaticly add the game, because under process it says "Added".

    You need to select the files you want (to multi-select hold control while clicking on an item), then when you've selected all the files you want click the Add To Build button.

    You've still got to rename them manually if the info isn't in the release list but the guy who updates the release database for me get's the stuff pretty quick and so far I've been able to have it updated within a couple of hours of release.

    If anyone else wants to do any editing of the release for me (I haven't got a clue when it comes to genres etc. and I haven't got the time to try 1100+ games! lol) it's just a simple text based ini file with pretty readable values. Just remember to save it somewhere other than the DATA folder or it'll be overwritten the next time you start the program. Let me know you've done it so I can give you my email address to send it to me and I can put it up on the server.

    It doesn't do a full CRC check of each NDS file yet.

    Dave - this manager rocks :-)

    Thanks for all your time on it, I haven't found anything else out there that will do as much as RC does.

    I've had a couple of errors, when RC was processing something (like cataloging a file), and I've moved my selection. It's never crashed, just given an error popup (I/O Error, I believe). Not a problem at all, just thought you might like to know.

    I particularly like the skin browser, really nice way to sort these out ;-)

    Cheers!

    Do you mean you moved the selector in the file box in the Classic Browser as it was processing a file already? If it is then it's an error message I've put in there myself.

    I haven't put in a queue system for the files yet (still figuring that one out, I think I've got it but it doesn't work 100%.) so once a list has started processing I've got to put all other processing requests on hold.

    If that's not what you mean can you give me some more details and I'll see what's up.

    And thanks for the compliments on the app, they're most appreciated!

    Yep! Nice one for letting us know though, can't stamp problems out without knowing about them!
