    Since 2ch releases are updated slowly and the servers go down ocassionaly, I'll be releasing infolib.dat updates as soon as new releases are dumped (aprox. an update every 3~4 releases). The other reason is that every record of the actual updates is in japanese, and it's hard to follow as this includes XXXX titles, kiosk demos, etc and the release numbers differ.

    Thanks to niu, the 2ch people (for starting this iniciative) and Boyakkey (the guy behind all this).

    Notes:
    -The library is based on the 2ch library dated 03/28/09.
    -It won't include savlib.dat because I'm not updating it. (neither the 2ch guys, I don't know why they keep adding it in every file).
    -The infolib.dat file is not related with game compatibility. It speeds up the loading times, in both DSTT's TTMENU and YSMenu.
    -This infolib.dat does not support 3 games (thanks niu for the info):
    *2745-Think Kids
    *3268-Tropix!
    *xxxx-DS Vision
    -Infolib.dat does not speed up homebrew.
    -Infolib.dat does not speed up patched ROMs. Only clean dumps (trimmed or not).
    (If anyone wants certain patched ROM added, let me know)
    -Games below #2437 (Jigsaw_World - Daigekitou Jig-Battle Heroes (JP)) are unaffected by this update. Those releases were already included in the last original infolib by the DSTT team.

    If you are interested in helping, PM me.

    Just out of curiousity, what *does* the infolib.dat do and how does it speed up loading times? From what I can see, it's primarily a list of game titles, identifiers and crc codes. Any ideas what TTMENU even does with it? I presume that if a game is in the list, then TTMENU doesn't have to do some extra step(s) to load the game, otherwise it would never work for games not in the list.

    Al least, that's what I think.

    When a game is added, the following is integrated into infolib:

    -Game Title (extracted from titlelist.xml through the identifier)
    -Date
    -Identifier (header info+other data)
    -A cheat (AR code?) named "PATCH" (pointers, I guess).

    there's 14 methods of patch
    without this, it, auto patching system, will try every methods step by step
    with this, only necessary 1 will be applied

    am I right?

    I don't know if you're right, but it makes sense. Back when I was running YSmenu with the 1.16 firmware, starting a DS ROM would shift to a textual debug screen that showed the patches being applied. This explains why sometimes I'd see all 14 patches, while others I'd only seen one or two.

    It's a shame that the card/firmware didn't just make a note of which patch worked when it loaded a ROM for the first time and then just used that one from then on.
