    Hi everyone,

    Since you already know, when you transfer your xci in your microsd, the latest rom is loaded at first in the menu.
    Because i Have a 256Go, it's difficult to choose a game remembering what was the first rom you transfered.

    To help: Grab this portable freeware

    SD Sorter :

    Just instert the SD on your computer and hit Sort SD Card Twice to make sure it's sorted.

    When you load up again, it will be sorted by name of your file

    Nota : You can sort With Numbers to have your current games on the beginning.
    Per exemple, if you are on Super Mario Odyssey, then rename your "Super Mario Odyssey.xci" to "00-Super Mario Odyssey.xci"
    The file will be at the very left :)

    Some info from the website :


    EDIT Sunday 21 October 2018 :
    With SxOs support, SDSorter don't recognize the HDD, so I have found a new freeware to order the disk and :

    Because I don't want to install it, I made it portable with Universal Extractor and here is the link for this portable version.

    Personnaly I don't recommand to Process Subfolders because of risk of corruption.

    Just a question, how does this work? Like, in theory. What does it do to make games appear in a certain order? Modify timestamp?
    BTW I already mailed TX about some kind of sort function or a grid view since scrolling through a lot of games when you have many on the card is a bit tedious, they said they work on it

    505 games? Damn you must've downloaded the whole library.

    Thanks for the tool, might come in handy whenever my jig arrives.

    505 Games is the Publisher Name/Compagny name probably :P.
    If you are too impatient, look forward to Paperclip or Tin foil, reliable and easy. After just go with AutoRcm

    It's simple, the tool create a temp directory and move all your files in there
    Then it moves back with alphabetical order as if you transfer from Z to A (you can see the change log when it's complete on the textbox at the bottom).
    This way, the XCI files are just allocated without delting and transfering again everything

    You are right, thanks for the heads up.
    I tried the tinfoil method but I suck at stuff like that. :P

    I just wrote a script in to do it in my macbook (thanks to @soaresden idea) and I think I should share with everyone here:

    Code:
    ( \
      export DIR=`pwd`; \
      echo "Working dir: $DIR"; \
      echo "Making temp folder..."; \
      mkdir -p "__tmp"; \
      for f in *.{xci,nsp}; \
      do \
        echo "Moving $f to temporary folder..."; \
        mv -f "$f" "__tmp/$f"; \
      done; \
      cd __tmp; \
      for f in *.{xci,nsp}; \
      do \
        echo "Moving $f back..."; \
        mv -f "$f" "$DIR/$f"; \
      done; \
      cd $DIR; \
      echo "Done, cleaning up..."; \
      rm -rf __tmp; \
    )
    How to use:
    - Open Terminal
    - Browse (cd) to your xci/nsp folder
    - Copy, paste & run the script
    - Enjoy :grog:
