    I've been searching the forum forever now, I know that there is a program or .bat file or something that gives you the icons of all of your DS games.

    Does anyone know what this is called or where I can download it?

    Thanks guys.

    I'm pretty sure rominator can do that.
    And even if it doesn't, you should get it anyways. [​IMG]
    Rominator's awesome.

    Use evolutiontools if you want them in your explorer. Extract with rominator.

    Can you add it to the homebrew database? I had that program a while ago and it's pretty sweet

    Hah. I never even considered such an idea. Installed Evolution Tools and now that I can see the rom icons I should be able to manage my carts much more easily when I forget to actually rename roms.

    I got this app today (thanks Whizz) and I was wondering, how can I make my icons look as good as Blue Star's?

    Look, my icons are resized, so they look blurry and... resized. What am I suppose to tweak on Windows to make them look "well"?

    I'm not fluent in Spanish yet, still early in lesson (Real life, NOT Spanish for Everyone), so I can't say exact..but you should easily figure it out from that.

    I tried the Cyclo evolution tools and it wont work with my roms. Do they have to be untrimmed or named properly or what?

    You're welcome Joey [​IMG]
    And Boligrafo, thanks. That helped [​IMG]. It's a bit harder to get them right on Vista though.
    @enigma It should work untrimmed, trimmed, renamed. Doesn't matter. Try reinstalling. Do the .sav icons work?

    Did you reboot after installing? They wouldn't display properly until I did.

    Nop i'll reboot now, and post the results




    Thanks to everyone that helped. =]


    EDIT: Okay i got it working. I tried renaming it from '.nds' to '.Nds' and it worked, but when i renamed it back to '.nds. the icon would disappear. So i then tried to reboot and it fixed it. So thank you all for your help.
