    I see a LOT of WBFS tools being developed (for Windows), but it seems to me that at best, they all work 1/2 to 3/4 of the way .... MANY bugs and a LOT of feature requests in every thread.

    Why dont you all (The guys creating them) collectively get together, break it up in modules or something based on your strengths, and create 1 unified tool, that is excellent in quality ? Not to put anyone down, but there are a lot of good coders around here, and I think all minds added up into one small project would have some stunning output.

    Just a suggestion, but I have not found a tool yet (in my travels) without bugs. And YES, I realize they are all very very new tools of course.

    For what it is worth .........

    I just wish that there's a thread that lists them all and keeps up to date with what each one is doing.

    I agree, the tools do have a lot of bugs.

    Has anyone found one that can actually rename ISO's whilst on the HDD? A lot of my games are ripped & I dont like the idea of having to create an iso from the disc to then rip it just to rename it!

    A few have 'rename' as an option but it only seems to work on iso's stored on the PC.

    It could be very nice to have a sticky thread to list everything concerning usb loader tools, or add it to the current USB Loader Tutorial/Faq (http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=144349)

    most of the tools are just GUI's... no real new features have been added apart from the rename-iso-feature..

    I've yet to use any GUI. I've been using batch files that I wrote to format/add games. Gonna wait a little while for that ultimate, bug-free GUI to come along.

    Just so people know, the rename feature was in the cygwin version of the tool (I think - I know I've seen it in GUIs based off it) and in the new Sodd mod (I think that was the name) for the current tools. Several GUI actually incorporate this mod just for these benefits.
