    This would be even better if it recognized patched ROMs. That is ROMs that end in nds.dsq. Then I could use it with my SuperCard...

    This excellent app is useless for me without .zip support.

    It's a little buggy under Linux, but definitely gonna keep an eye on this!

    Would love to see zip support as well.

    It worked perfectly fine for me under Vista. What error are you getting?

    Great app and I'm happy to see it featured on the frontpage (although that red skin sucks, all do but the Matrix one IMHO).
    I got an error when trying to update from with the program but worked fine when I downloaded it from his site.
    Keep up the good work!

    where does he get his database from?
    as it doesn't include the game and watch collection
    (or any other xxxx I assume)

    good program otherwise.
    run into a few probs with vista though (program errors and shutdowns)

    I think it's strange the space between leters for releasing group "L E G A C Y", other rom renaming don't add them.
    (same goes for M.o.d.e.7 and S U P R E M A C Y).


    That's great that your database is using GBAtemp rom numbering [​IMG]
    Maybe you could add demo, iQue, and xxxx released to gbatemp frontpage. That would make it a very good rom manager/renaming program [​IMG]

    I hope you will have enough money to continue developpement and integrate zip/inside_zip renaming.


    Wich IDE are you using ?
    The design looks like Xul element.

    Without ZIP support this util isnt going to gain much use or fans. Cowering's GOODTOOLS are an excellent example of this fiasco.

    What we also need to see is the use of a recognised ROM database such as ADVANsCEne's for example.

    Without these features, I can't see it moving forward.

    Oh, and as for asking for $500 is a bit of a cheek considering its not fully functional due to above said issues!

    It's been in development for ages and finally makes front page [​IMG]

    Shame about the donation costs, but if everyone who used it donated like $1?

    Then again, hank has already paid for plugins to reach even this version. Infact, he started the project to be gbatemp exclusive

    I think zip support though would be top priority

    I will still be releasing updates, but only small feature revisions.

    I may or may not do Zip support or an extensive save system because it'll be very time consuming and I just don't have the drive to do so as of yet. A lot of work, money, and time has gone into this project.

    Also, you guys need to understand: Rominator pulls a lot of internal information from a game - it's header, rom size, game title, and icon. Adding in Zip would break those as the only way to see that info would be to decompress the zip file. But realistically, if you've got a bunch of 128MB files and a bunch of 64MB files, etc, how long do you think that would take to decompress? Too long. It's just not feasible.

    Regards

    So how does RomCenter or clrMAMEpro retrieve information such as MD5, SHA, CRC32 info whilst ZIP'd?

    If they can see that whilst zipped, I cant see why header, rom size, game title, and icon cant be performed in Rominator?
