    Wow, I guess Rominator has moved up the ranks from being posted in Homebrew, to being posted in the GBAtemp official news.

    [​IMG] What an honor! [​IMG] for all!

    I couldn't have come this far in Rominator without the support from all of our fellow tempers. Thanks to everyone who appreciates my work! I still think it's amazing how far this has actually come from almost a year and a half ago when I released the first version just as a concept idea. (Not to mention, an entry in the 'How much do you love GBAtemp? contest [​IMG] )

    Even though my wife made me sell my DS Lite because of the cost of my new computer, I will still continue to support and develop Rominator and soon enough she will let me buy a new DS Lite when the debts are paid back a little [​IMG]

    Eek, your wife owned you. Next time there's a Rominator release, PM me, as I'll post it up faster than these noobs! [​IMG]

    i have each of my DS ROMs seperated into their own unique folders, as a suggestion could it be possible for rominator to read subdirectories to find ROMs?

    I already does [​IMG]

    When you make a new game list, set the game folder as the 'master' directory, and then in that list hit the Refresh button. It will scan up to 5 directories deep and catch all your games.

    It seems more fit to have it in this forum, than GBAtemp & Scene news.
    It doesn't belong in that forum, but neither does it belong in this one.
    Either way, it doesn't matter...get back to work! *brandishes whip*

    Read me says "For Windows Users: Place the 'Rominator Data' folder inside C:\Documents and Settings\~Username\Application Data\" but what about Vista users, I tried c:\users\~username\Apps but no joy. Rominator then asks if import confirm but still nothing?

    I don't know where the Application Data folder is in Vista, all you can do is put Rominator in the same location as Rominator Data and run it -- It'll migrate the data for you to the proper folder.

    Again, this was all communicated in the zip you downloaded in the important read me, so I shouldn't have to repeat myself.
