    I just received my CycloDS today, and find it very user friendly. However I am one of those overly compulsive anal individuals who find it hard to adapt to change. I am having trouble using the alphabetically sorted rom list and I am wondering if it is possible to have it resorted by rom number. The official Cyclo sites are down, and searching the forums didn't yield any helpful results. So can anyone offer any advice?

    Seems obvious but, put the release number in the filename.

    Thank you for the reply, all my roms already have their file names starting with their respective rom numbers. They still sort out alphabetically ignoring the numeric order.

    I personally remove the release numbers from roms before I add to my uSD so I am going a little out on a limb here. Once you're in the cyclo browser, what is the view that is listed in the top right. I think you want "file" or "list".
    Use X to change views.

    Thank you again for another reply. Changing the view, just changes the view. It does not resort the files.

    I used RomeR to modify the Embeded Title of a rom and add a release number to the beginning. Then I used the "rom" view in cyclo. Seems overly complicated, maybe somebody else knows a better/easier way.

    If you have the ROM number added to the front of the file, then view in either List or File. It will sort them by numerical order.

    The official site's back up now, but try removing the - between the number and the ROM name so it won't automatically ignore the ROM number.

    Sorting numerically was apparently removed from version 1.2b onwards, digits in front of file names are ignored in sorting for all views. So I guess I'll just have to get used to it. Thanks for everyone who replied.
