    For the next few releases I will post questions and answers from a very short interview with the Yellow Wood Goblin. The questions are simple, sometimes have 2-3 word answers, focus on the firmware itself, but also aim to provide a tiny bit of insight while asking what the Goblin's favorite games/homebrews are.

    Without further ado, our 8th question:

    Q: What is your favorite Homebrew title and why?
    A: IkuReader. Sometimes I like to read something.

    Please feel free to discuss the firmware update as well as the interview in this news thread.

    Engine Room with Cyan, watching him learn.
    Wow, the goblin was unusually chatty this time. [​IMG]

    I wonder if AW ever asked him how long he will continue to update Wood? Retirement plans? [​IMG]

    Hmmm... I would say you're lying since there's no such news on any scene sites I know (GBAtemp, I'm talking about you too), but I already found a rom file in less than 5 minutes searching intertubes. [​IMG] Talk about early dump!

    So, back to topic, thanks this lightning fast update, Goblin! You always rocks!

    Will Lameboy work ok on Wood R4 now?

    Last time I looked, you needed the Slot 2 (?) add on for the flash cart for it to work

    YWG thanks again for the update! Keep up the good work!

    Tip: if you use the online update feature remember that "savesize.bin" will not be updated. To complete the update download the 7z file, extract savesize.bin and replace the savesize.bin in the __rpg folder on the SD card.

    Even though that file doesn't get updated, will that make much difference?

    i am pretty sure the savesize.bin is only used so that a correctly sized save file can be created. if you do not have the updated file it should still write the save file but it may pad it. i'm not 100% sure, because to be honest with you i have not used my rpg for awhile. a few minutes of bug testing would help you to find out if my comments are correct or just speculation.

    savesize.bin is a very special feature of Wood. No other firmware can do that.

    savesize.bin is needed only for perfect view and you get a little more space. without it saves padded, you are right. and wood contain small database inside for all problematic games.
    but of course I can add savesize.bin update through wifi (but nothing else [​IMG]).

    That would be nice. savesize.bin file has some fans, definitely. Perfectionism is a basic need.
