    - Add Drag and drop support for adding savegames

    - Disabled menu and icone when a command is not accesible

    The link you gave is not at all the official page, just a mirror newbie made.
    The "official" link is here : SramExplorer-v1.1.zip and there is unfortunatly no official page (if anybody want to help on that, you are welcome). I would prefer you use my "official" link when it's working, since I can check how many people download it. It's always nice to see the counter rising [​IMG]

    I'm expecting to release the v 1.2 soon (in fact the 1.1 is already kind of "old"), so if you have any sugestion/ bug report, it's time to talk [​IMG]

    Another things, I think I had already say it here, but the version 1.01 got a serious bug, so I really recommand to everybody that got it to upgrade to the last version.

    Can you make Sram Eplorer load/save 64ko bank backups? because I have a Flash Linker XTreme and a 256Pro and I can't backup/write the 256ko of sram, it works with 4 banks. However this is a great tool [​IMG]

    I guess I can do something like an import/export bank in the contextual menu.
    That shouldn't be too much work.

    Does Sram Explorer work with any other program other than pogoshell sram? I ask because I use EZ Writer and this program won't let you select the size of the sram when you upload to PC.

    I want to use pogoshell but haven't gotten it to work yet [​IMG] Does anyone know which version work with EZ1 carts?

    I know sasq started a Ez card support in the 1.3, but I think it doesn't really work yet, maybe in next release. You can give it a try though.

    keep up your good work. your tool saved my golden sun savegame. i tried your tool and extracted my savegame from golden sun. one day later the free space in my sram bank 1 (which contained golden sun) became too little and pogoshell simply deleted it, because there wasn't enough space left.

    so your tool did save my (virtual) life in golden sun [​IMG]

    news for 1.2 :
    - Split the Sram function from the gui and put them into a separated dll
    - This version came with a command line executable : SramExp.exe
    - Add a little API to manage pogo dump since some people asked
    - There is now a *.sav filter when you want to open or save a .dump
    - The open and file dialog box will now remember where you open your dump last
    - Now system file have "None" display in the Save ID column
    - You can now import and export a single bank (64ko) if you want
    - You can now sort your savegame by name,size,type or save ID (doesn't affect your dump)
    - The size of each column is now save in the registery
    - You can now import your .state (pogoshell settings) into a dump
    - Replace the ugly message box that appear when you open a file by a message in the status bar
    - Correct a bug that made Add file not working from the context menu
    - Correct a bug that didn't let you choose other extension than the default one in file dialog
    - Correct a bug that made the column resize not apply to all bank

    you can find a beta version in this emuboard thread : http://www.emuboards.com/cgi-bin/ikonboard...t=&&#entry34195

    Any bug report is of course welcome, but I'd rather that everybody that doesn't feel himself the soul of a betatester wait for the release hopefull soon (my computer don't want to boot anymore, I really hope I hadn't loose any source code [​IMG] )
