    good evening evreyone sorry for my poor english but i have recently bought R4DS after reading some forums and seeing some Kick ass skins great job guys great job but at the end of the day i cant help but notice the software thats bundled with the r4 (Trimmer and save converter) sucks major donkey balls ass i mean you have to do it one by one w/c is time consuming now my question is

    1. will they update the trimmer? im no programmer and adding batch conversion seems easy but i know it will take a lot of work do you know anyone currently working on a alternative? or people just dont mind the hassle

    2. Is the r4's moonshell replacable? will we able to update it to 1.6 and how?

    sorry for the questions

    P.S
    great respect for the guy who created thos R4 skin template, dude you save my day [​IMG] and for those guys who keep on making skins ( and mavis for hosting) thank you im planning on making one but i dont have a photoshop

    For the first question, they may be working on it.

    Yes you can change the moonshell, in fact you can change it to run any homebrew you like (provided it is compatible). Search it up, it's been said many times

    Who else is s/he going to blame, the pope?

    R4's utils are crap, of course we are going to blame them.

    You also suck [​IMG]

    Im sure it will only be a matter of time before they make it batch friendly and/or fixes their trimmer to work properly.
    To be honest with you people, you are complaining too much. The R4 team included a microSD reader along with their R4 product.. what happends? A few gets a faulty one and hell breaks lose.

    and now this. How many developers have actually included a trimmer/save converter to their format right from the start? This is luxury people, they had no need to include neither of those stuff and just let some random programmer make a save converter in a few months.
    The trimmer and the save converter does what it is suppose to do. It's not perfect, but it's not something the R4 team deserves to be crucified for.

    So stop being so picky and be grateful for their work.. you bunch of nosepickers [​IMG]

    I've found the save converter and trimmer to be invaluble. Did about 20 at the start but even without a batch option it didn't take to long. And now I just put games on one at a time usually and I'll probably never convert a save again so it doesn't bother me.
