    Apparently, some games may not use any saves at all (for example, Blazblue/Blayzbloo).
    The script will create a 0KB public.sav for those, but it shouldn't be a problem if the game won't be looking for a save anyway.
    If still you don't want for that public.sav and data folder to be created at all for such games, this should work:
    Edited script
    By the way, for those who haven't installed Windows 10 yet, I tried to make a "true" Windows pack. :blush:
    Extract attached zip somewhere, place the .nds files into the same folder you extracted the zip to, and run "convert_to_dsiware.bat".
    Tested on Windows 7 64bit, and also on Windows XP 32bit, just in case.
    I hope this works fine for others, too.

    Is that windows version the same thing as the original or is it a re written version?

    The .bat script is a rewrite, but the python script is the same, just converted with py2exe so it can be run without python installed.
    Windows doesn't have its own tools to create a fat12 image and truncate it, so equivalents are included (bfi.exe and truncate.exe)
    And maketmd has an official Windows build.

    Has anyone tried to convert Pokemon Black/White 1/2? If so, will it have an animated banner and other DSi enhanced features?

    Oh :(
    The post was misleading, especially since it said No-intro ROMs

    What's the point of converting DSiWare to DSiWare?

    so i thought is was my chromebook's fault. but i tried it with other setup now that im home.

    i get this error message, were it says power down your device. once i put the dsiware created with this tool in the correct location,

    once i remove that dsiware, everything works again.

    If you're using my Windows version, that happens because those .nds files have an exclamation mark in their names.
    Sorry for the inconvenience, I'll try to fix the .bat later when I have some time.
    For now you can just rename those .nds so they don't have any "!" in the name.
