for the emulator I've been waiting 2 years for.

Thanks to Reaper2k2 also for showing interest into WSC emulation.

actully, .rar compresses them quite nicely and when i make an image with all my roms it comes out at 820mb (w/o the mp3) so if thet were a feature it would help, i wouldnt want to have to make an extra cd for about 80mb

too bad its impossible

if you use dcf it asks where your roms are located zipped or unzipped i think it will unzip them for you, instead of going one by one

Just use unzipped roms...

Post by uZiel » Tue Nov 19, 2002 11:33 am

Dunno what's the matter with that, i don't have to unzip 50 roms when burning a cd, because i already have them zipped...

That was just stupid, Cless. There are over 5 gigs of unzipped SNES roms out there. A whole zipped USA set would fit on one disc, but unzipped, they don't. Some people would like to do this (myself being one of them). And no, I don't think other things should be addressed before this. This is a simple thing the DreamSNES team could probably do in a day if they felt like it. Maybe now if people do request it, it will get done.

Its not so much that someone needs it..some people just like it that way. Having the whole USA section of the GoodSNES set on one disc would be nice. Besides, with 5 gigs of roms, I'm sure at least a gig or so are good enough to burn. But you couldn't fit a full gig without zipping.

You have heard about 99minutes cds??
They will easily store your 820mb. And about 50 games more..
Will that do for a solution??
