    It's taking quite a long time for this update...
    Seriously, I don't know how many people have suggested to use .sav instead of .nds.sav
    .nds.sav? What were they thinking? [​IMG]

    Anyway, are they actually working on this? As I see it, it's just a matter of renaming so it should take 2 seconds to update it. (Plus other little tweaks)
    Because I thought it was meant to be updated 'regularly'... plus updates aren't always AP updates, but can be tweaks like this one.

    Well there was a HUGE fuss about Wood being so awesome... but if we can't at least use .sav then I seriously doubt it's that awesome. [​IMG]

    Seriously, it must take a couple seconds to just replace .nds.sav in the code to .sav
    Remember, it's just renaming the file, so it will obviously work.

    Give them time to get that working. It was only released a few weeks ago. Don't bash on the shiny new firmware! [​IMG] I'm sure they will change it soon enough.

    It literally must take them 2 seconds to just use .sav instead of .nds.sav [​IMG]
    I seriously hope they change it tho

    You should give the YWG some respect at what he's done for the R4. It could give them a lease of new life, and he's not asked for anything in return.

    That.

    Renaming the .sav to nds.sav is sort of annoying, but it only takes a few seconds.

    I know, I AM giving him respect. It's a suggestion [​IMG]
    I'm just saying that using .sav should be on his list for when the next Wood comes out.

    Plus I don't know how to code, but for people who do I bet it wouldn't take to long, seriously. [​IMG]

    Your saying the firmware isn't awesome cuz of the save extension? It takes 2 seconds to rename them with a batch file...

    +1

    moreover, since the 1.04, everybody (who has not..?) has changed his save files in .nds.sav.
    so the the problem doesn't exist anymore, since the new games are automatically created with the new extension.

    if the developper changes the extensions name now, we will all have to rename all our .nds.sav in .sav^^

    You could just try out Xenon++'s edited version since it supposedly changed the save files to .sav and he added the autoboot latest rom feature (for moonshell2 linking xD) if you are THAT impatient...I'm fairly certain it works, but meh its not like I've personally tried it yet.

    Well all I would ask for was support for .nds.sav, .gba.sav, .SAV, and .sav files and not to have the whole save file support switched to only .sav again like most other firmwares have..... Since a lot of my backup saves aren't switched from .sav or .SAV to .nds.sav or .gba.sav yet.

    Yeah, it's inconvenient, but by now most people who have switched to Wood R4 don't need to do that any longer.

    Well, except for me. Since I have backup saves that don't yet work with Wood R4. XD

    I think it makes sense to standardize it.

    I myself have many different firmwares on my card - the original R4 firmware, Moonshell 2 (with YSmenu) and Wood R4. With Wood R4, I can't continue off a game that I started on, say, Moonshell. It wouldn't work the other way either.

    Just my two cents.

    Bekar, entitled little kids like you make my knuckles itch for teeth. Instead of sitting around complaining about what it would take one of your superiors "seconds to do", perhaps you could have been researching how to add that "simple" bit of coding yourself.

    You just take advantage of other people's hard work, then cheapen it by saying it only takes seconds, and then you have the audacity to be impatient, on top of everything else?


    You, sir, are a twatflap.

    Well, technically you could use your Moonshell2 saves with woodR4 if you rename your saves and edit the YSMenu.ini to take .nds.sav instead of .sav

    As for Bekar, don't be like Goncalodoom, its bad enough with one person as it is (and dam do I want to bash his head in).

    Neither do I know Goncalodoom, nor do I understand why you'd want to back someone's head in [​IMG]
    Read above. You've obviously jumped to conclusions like someone above as to what I am trying to say.


    Wow. A magnificent performance [​IMG]
