    THE ULTIMATE R4DS COMPILATION HAS ARRIVED!!

    **EDIT - VERSION 1.75 IS OUT NOW, LOOK IN THE MIRRORS SECTION FOR THE DOWNLOAD. THE FILES SIZE HAS BEEN RAISED BY 30+MB, THIS IS THE SMALLEST I COULD GET IT TO BE.


    This is a pack i put together with some great tools. All homebrew in this pack have been pre-patched for R4DS. This pack Includes Guides on how to do things such as skinning. It has tools to convert saves. I even threw in my own saves that i ripped from retail games. This pack is over 45 megabytes (100MB+ uncompressed) of essential software and homebrew for the R4DS. It even includes every version of the firmware. The default skin for each firmware is of my own design. You may download and host this pack where ever you wish but give credits to me cause i put time in to making it for you guys.

    Pack Includes:

    Save Conversion Tools (gameshark>r4, ARDS >R4, and more)
    Saves to some of my games, all saves are from a cleared game.
    Movie Creation Tools (DPG Tools 1.21)
    Skinning Templates
    All Firmware

    Documentation on how to use everything oin this pack
    DLDI Tool/DLDI Batch Patcher
    R4DS Cheat Editor

    Rominator
    and much more

    What's the point of having all the firmwares?

    We'll I don't see a point to having ALL of them, but some people prefer having smaller firmware sometimes if they don't feel the need to cheat or what not.

    Please can I put this on Flashcart Firmware Mirror?
    I can give you an FTP account where you can host this file and update it regularly if you like.

    Wouldn't the DSClipper be a better choice than the official R4 trimmer regarding overtrimming of Wi-Fi data at the end of roms? :x

    on that note, wouldn't batchdpg 4.5 be the wiser choice than dpg tools? faster encoding AND also produces better quality video

    I was just going to ask if this was something you were going to update when new versions of the apps come out - question already answered. Can't wait for the site as that will really help those of us that don't want to (or are too lazy) to hunt down the new apps. Thanks again!

    Nope! I haven't really got a problem with it apart from the fact that the way he describes the pack gives no credit to anybody apart from himself! I've spent alot of time on R4 Commander and HankChill has spent alot of time on Rominator and a thank you or at least a by XXXXX is usually the curteous thing to do.

    i downloaded it from the R4DS forums and they said it was free for distribution. I kept all the credits to the creator of it in it's folder. In the pack i mentioned that nothing in the pack is my creation and i don't credit myself to anything in the pack. I respect the people who created the apps in the pack. I' am gonna add a credits section with credits to everything in the next release.

    It is free for distribution, and like I said I haven't got a problem with it, but "This is a pack i put together with some great tools" could be turned into "This is a pack i put together with some great tools by some hardworking homebrew coders" and would probably solve the problem because it gives credit to everybody who's written anything that's in your pack.

    Alright mate I just checked your pack and the version you've got of R4 Commander is 0.995 and it's now on 1.08, can you update your pack please? And could you also put the readme files back in the directory please.

    EDIT: Also I don't know if you've noticed (or anyone else has and told you yet) but the documentation folder inside your Homebrew folder has it's hidden attribute set.

    It's Hidden? Well my pc lets me see hidden files so thats probably why i didnt catch it. I did have all the readme files in there, i think. I'll update them in the next release.
