    Finally! The HongKongPost site updated, after 10 freaking days of waiting! >_>"
    But it updated with bad news, I think:

    WTH? Someone on this forums ordered the same day as me and his got shipped on the 14th..and mine is supposedly being procceseed for delivery just now :[
    Looks like my hopes of getting it Friday are crushed, and that day I had no school! :'(
    Ah well, it should be here Monday if all goes according to plan, sometime that week..

    I saw a UPS truck pass by today when walking home from school and I thought it was here [​IMG]
    And when I came home I asked my dad if it came, the R4, and he said "yeah". And then I flipped out and he said he was lying :[
    Why must he toy with my feelings! D:

    Anyway I also have 1 question in addition to all that. On a certain website, they have a AC:WW ROM that has like 7,000 downloads. Then there's one that only has 167 downloads, same game, but this one has (v01) next to it. Is the one with the (v01) the one people should be getting? Is it newer or different in any way? :\

    Also, does a ROM get corrupted if you change its name? Some of them I've heard have #'s in front of the name of the game?

    Get the newer one, sometimes ROMs are released with slight changes that make them more stable or fix some minor bugs that weren't picked up in testing.

    Based on your your tracking update, it will still be another day or 2 before your package actually leaves Hong Kong. And your package should be coming by USPS, not UPS. [​IMG]

    And yeah, what sinkhead said. The v01 (aka v 1.1) is an updated dump that fixes some bugs in the original. Make sure to grab that one instead.

    That's no fair...I ordered earlier and yet mine didn't even ship yet.
    I have horrible luck, I guess.

    Over there.
    The numbers are the official release number, nothing that important. But make sure that your save files have the same name as your ROM, or else it won't be read.

    Oh sorry. No, ROMS do not get corrupted if you change the name.

    HK Post packages take about 9 or 10 days (Sunday included) to arrive from when it says they were exported to the US.

    So if the name is changed before the save file is made, the SAV file will automatically have the same name as the ROM..thus not needing to change anything manually.
    But question..if the numbers are kept, will they show up when someone goes to select the game on the R4? Or do they *magically* disappear.

    However it is named on your comp is how it will appear on the menu.

    And if you put a ROM on your R4 without putting a save file on it first, a prompt will ask you if you want to make a saver/bookmark for the game. However, when you download one, rename it the name of the ROM, otherwise, no read.

    Crap, meant to be @1Sailor.

    Oh, ok. So I guess it's better to change the name first, and take out the numbers before the actual title.
    Thanks again! [​IMG]

    You dont need to make a new thread every time you have a thought. Contrary to what you might think, you can ask multiple questions in the same thread.

    Rejoice! Something to make me happy while I wait [patiently?] for my R4 to arrive. DX updated their page with this:

    Hooray! That means mine is definitely a new shell now, I guess I can forgive them [​IMG]
