    The verification is because if the program tried to load a corrupted cover or with a not supported format the application a critical error were rised. Now the verification is just a Exception handling to prevent the app from crash, notify the user via console and delete the cover to try to obtain a new one.

    as for the notes:

    1. when modifying an option that needs restart to take action (for example language) popup a message

    Already done

    2. could you add the ciso/wbi support

    I need to check for the format specification, where these formats are used?

    3. it looks like your application can only download 3d OR standard covers... why not both ?

    4. following the previous point.. if I start downloading flat covers.. and then switch to 3d.. I end up with a mix

    This was implemented because some users of another forum like to use the 3D covers only, so in theory the user checks this option if he likes 3D and "forever" will be like this. The concept was not well implemented i admit my error on that, but i will fix it.

    5. when in the option screen, if I click outside of the option page (for example on a drive) I would like a message to popup telling me I am leaving the option screen and actually leave.

    Done, the Configuration panel is not a "native" part of the browser window, it's a panel that hides the browser window, so i have to code the "Change" of path appart.

    @giantpune

    In fact yes, if you change the code you will trim the name also.

    I have updated the code here to include the full 64 chars, I planned to release the 2.0.07 when i finish implementing all the cover changes, but, like you said you do a lot of custom games, i can release this minor fix then work on the covers... But, it will not take to long to do finish the whole thing...

    omega frost,

    ciso was primarily used by hermes wbfs_win.
    now quiet a few applications use it (either by using the wbfs_win.exe or implementing it in their own library)
    for example PrixMGui or Wbfs Intelligent gui
    WBI is used by ncWBFSTool, from the author's note it is 100% identical to ciso, he simply changed the extension for clarity

    about the different type of cover I believe it would be a nice addition, don't forget to add the option in the loader part to make sure you are copying the correct version.
    if you really wanted to be totally "compatible" with most of the usbloaders you should implement also the disc image and the full cover.
    I know I am adding to your burden, so stop me whenever you want.

    shoot me with any test version you want.

    Cheers,
    R

    would make it so much easier and smaller to backup then

    Warlord,

    why would you like specifically ISO to CISO ?
    syncscrub is equivalent to ciso (sizewise), with some improvement.

    in my humble opinion we would need CISO support to allow people who already have CISO files to use them.

    but maybe I am missing something

    First i will release the 2.0.07 with the 2D/3D cover and name fixes, then i will see the cISO. I still can't find the source code, i will download a game and reverse engineer it when i have time.

    Also, the functionality for it will not be widely explored, i will suport decompression to normal ISO, conversion to SyncScrub and maybe a PC-to-Wbfs

    I also improved the configuration panel since it was a little bit confusing

    @Pakatus: Thanks!

    @warlord007:

    Which ones? Tell me so i can improve the support.

    My guess is that the games have names >= 32 characters, if so, the 1.1 version of SyncScrub is shipping with 2.0.07

    EDIT: Good news, the cISO is almost identical to my SyncScrub except mine has a more detailed header and different header alignment. Unfortunately, due to this different alignment a just-rewrite-the-header conversion is impossible.

    @warlord007

    Could you specify the games? If this is forbidden in GBATemp could you send me a Message then?

    EDIT: forgot to tell, the Log messages can help me to solve the problem too.

    @Pakatus

    If you want you can use the command "listgames DRIVE "Output File.txt"" command using the console application

    Nope, i've been busy these days, but i ensure, the project is still running [​IMG]

    i also was fixing the part of the code that controls the auto closing of the "Format Disk" and had to wait for my question to be answered in MS Foruns, unfortunately my topic there was sent to moderation trash bin...

    Program looks awesome. Some possible improvements to the interface:
    - Mapped network locations are indentified as "Default".
    - When browsing folders, you can move the "selection" using the keyboard arrows, but you can't open folders with the Enter key.

    Good news everyone, the new 2.0.07 is coming with ciso support and the syncscrub 1.1, as i said i've been busy these days, and i still need to implement the support for the cISO in the GUI, for now you can Extract and Convert to Syncscrub from the Console only.

    But before the release, redia, could you do a little translation favor? [​IMG]

    "Update SyncScrubs version automatically"

    Thanks!
