    Hey everyone,

    I ran the ROMs that i have through the Rominators validation test and this is what showed up.


    Now as you can see, TETRIS DS and METEOS apparently did not pass the test because of the CRC being invalid or something, will this effect gameplay in anyway and more importantly can this possibly break the software on my DS or anything like that ?

    yea, don't use those.

    It can mess with the internal memory in the DS and brick it.
    You can hack it tho and change the CRC number.
    This will make it pass the rominator validator and everything will be gravy at that point.

    None of mine pass, because thay are trimmed.
    They will almost definitely play fine.
    And wtf at the guy above me...
    The only internal memory besides the RAM is the BIOS memory....
    They won't brick your DS.

    All it does is a simple hashcheck to identify if the rom is a clean dump or an altered one. All my roms fail Rominator's validation test, but all of them work 100% (this may be because I trim them all before registering them into Rominator's database, though).
