    Has anybody else had problems transferring games since the new release?

    I have tried both dragging and dropping the games to the flash card (my usual way) and by using the Rom Queue. Both methods result in errors (bugs submitted).

    Just wanted to know whether or not it was just me or a common thing....

    Thanks.

    I've just downgraded back to 5.3.2 from 5.3.3 on mac osx due to errors and crashes.

    Program quits when trying to auto rename a ROM and also an error is displayed when viewing ROM info.

    Didn't get as far as trying to put ROMs onto the flash card.

    I have the same issue.

    I can't transfer games to my card, it crashes. Just in case it matters, I'm using the adapter that came with the CycloDS.

    Yep, same problem here. Zipped roms crash when trying to transfer to a MicroSD.

    I loe the way that when deleting from my SD, rominator always asks if I would like to backup my savegame and delete the .sav

    Anyways, I find this quite useless when I'm flashing back to my micro SD. When I'm flashing a game, rominator doesnt check if the game to be flashed has any savegames, neither it asks me if I would liek to move the lates savegame to mi microSD along with the rom...

    Please make this a future feature [​IMG]

    This feature is manual, go to tools -> show game saves. Checked saves are transferred with the game you have highlighted.


    Update:

    I've now tried all formats, none work.


    Zip, rZip, and raw .nds files will not transfer.

    There is also a hard crash upon decompressing rZip's.

    Then why not make it automatic. Or at least, when flashing a rom, pop a question window asking if the user wants to flash the latest .sav along with the .nds?

    Henry told me that next version will have the option to automatically backup the save.

    The preferences in Rominator allow setting a GBA rom folder, but for whatever reason I am unable to add any GBA roms, is this feature not fully implemented yet? Also I have the Trim when flashing option enabled, however, since I use GBAexpLoader (or whatever rudolph's one is called) I can only use clean GBA roms... so is there (will there be) an option to disable trimming for GBA, but allow for NDS?

    Also I cant remember if I suggested this before or not, but for the Mac version at least, it would be REALLY helpful if when right-clicking a ROM there was the option to "Reveal in Finder."


    *Edit* read previous posts to find out that GBA feature is not fully implemented yet... [​IMG]

    He's working on it, not finished yet so it had to be disabled.

    I cant start rominator up, i keep getting a send error report prompt.
    I just unpacked the rominator.exe with the rominator data folder and just tried to boot it up.

    Ask and ye shall receive [​IMG] (Actually, don't ask, because DB updates are a normal thing, so it's something that doesn't need to be requested [​IMG] )

    I didn't do the update last weekend because it was my birthday and I had a Rock Band party (minus the alcohol, we don't drink in our home), so I figured I deserved a week off [​IMG]

    The database is online now though. I've also spent 12 hours yesterday crunching away at Rominator, and I plan to spend about another 9 today... let's see what I have for you guys [​IMG]

    You may have heard these before, but being able to SRAM/sleep patch on the fly would be excellent.

    Thanks for spending so much time on this, I appreciate it.
