    To add roms into the Supercard One v3 do you need any special program to convert them or what?
    or to add them? can it just be dragged and dropped or how does SC1V3 work?

    It's just drag and drop, but as you may or may not know trimming roms is very useful in order to save space.
    For trimming your roms I recommend using NDSTokyoTrim.

    You might need to update the save-database for the Scds1 once in a while. To do that, just download the unofficial ndsinfo.dat from here and copy it into the scshell folder replacing the older ndsinfo.dat

    Unofficial ndsinfo.dat is available here:

    Unlike other flashkarts Scds1 doesn't use the biggest saver size available by default. Instead it uses a saver size database which contains the correct sizes for savefiles in order to conserve space. If a game isn't in the database it uses a set default saver size which of course could be set to the highest saver size available.

    thats not true anymore the scdsone saves all saves at 512kb (4mb) it used to save them the same size as set in the ndsinfo.dat in the first few loaders that it used but not anymore
    but you can use the right size save for each game but you have to put them on yourself when you start a new game

    heres a bundle of blank saves you just have to give them the same name as your rom & match the size with the ndsinfo.dat blank_saves

    Why not just update the ndsinfo.dat?

    The way you do it seems like a lot more trouble than just replacing an older ndsinfo.dat with a newer one.

    i do update my ndsinfo.dat....

    but that dosnt change the fact that the scdsone saves every save to 512kb (4mb)

    im just giving the option to put the right size save on your memory card so you dont have to use the 512kb (4MB) save made by the scdsone

    Yeah I'm also a little un-clear what the .dat file is for, maybe it's only used with clean save mode, which i never use.

    the ndsinfo.dat tells the scdsone 4 things on each rom

    1. english/chinese names
    2. release number
    3. header id (YILJ)
    4. save size (not used anymore) cause all saves save to 512kb (4mb)

    Also, the knowing the release number tells the SCDS1 what cheat file to use. [​IMG]
