My dream of GENIE.....
I've got two very good questions that may intrest some of you NesterJ users. Please, any mod who gets to this I asked this before but, it was a reply to a thread and I lost it. I would really like to know:
1. I have a file of 5,109 genie cheats for the NesterJ. The GENIE file that I have contains 480 game folders of cheats (thats 10 cheats per game). The folder is 19.9MB yet as I load it to my card it takes up 300+MB.. WHY?
2. The extension on each cheat is 'File' yet, the icons look the same as un-zipped roms. Since they are only files can I upload them for all to use? Perhaps it would be of use to some NesterJ programmers? If I can, I'd like to for the community but.. HOW?
why in the world would you need that many cheats first of all, well i have no idea why it gets unzipped when you load it though. Maybe you should just load a few at a time
I got the cheat file from the original Nester emu disk for the Dreamcast. The disk didn't work but, all the genie cheats and roms were on it so..... They unzip? Is that whats happening? But, aren't they just text files? I was under the impression that the icons were some coding error.
I tried what you said and I watched it carefully. I loaded the file for 1942. On my desktop it was 28KB after loading it onto my card it was 227KB. Hmmm.... I wounder if I rar it with winrar it would stay compact. NesterJ does have zip support...
Nope, winrar took it from 19MB to 478KB and it stayed in that size when loaded on the ms. When I went to load it , the emu saw the .rar but, when I opened it it hung the emu. Grrrrr, why won't this work? :icon_mad:
same problem with stupid webportal stuff =/ it says like 3mb but they take up like 10 on ur card...... solution make ur own webportal w/o all that extra crap ^^
I don't understand... Forgive an ignorant response but, what's a webportal? How does this help me? I'm still waiting to hear if I can upload this for anyone. I looked at one of these files. It's just a jumbled series of letters on each page.
And I came up with a great use for so many cheats. The genie on NesterJ lets you load as many cheats as you want one at a time. If you had several cheats for one game you could use them all.
