    DS Roms

    Ok i dont know if im allowed to ask this here and if not mods please remove.

    Just a quick question if you have a rom in zip form how do you extract the correct files from it?

    Which are the correct files because I cant get any roms that came in zip file form to work

    Again if this isnt allowed please remove, but really hoping someone can help

    right click and extract same way u would any other zip file.. the file u need is the .nds one the rest are usually useless

    have you tried right clicking on the zip file and selecting "extract here"

    Unzip the file first.
    You are looking for .nds files.

    ctuk what will that do? how do i go bout using it?

    cos i tried last night and it did the same as extract all..

    u need winrar and then right click one of the rar files and extract and that will give you your .nds file

    (works same as winzip but for rar files)

    Please tell us, did you pay all the relevant taxes, duties, V.A.T on the Ds lite you imported?

    At the U.S equivalent of £80, I would be surprised if you saved any money on the U.K price of £100.

    Seems he's not interested in answering questions thesaint, just causing trouble. Hence my earlier question - the two are very alike, and I suspect they are one and the same person. He hasn't denied it yet ... :whistling:

    Its a pity that you seem to regard basic honesty as "moralistic" but I guess that's the kind of skewed thinking that's prevalent these days. And since you asked, yes I did ask customs when I arrived if I should declare the DS, and the iPod, and the other things I bought, and they said they weren't interested in anything less than a couple of hundred quid as it was too much hassle.

    Have a nice day

    Excuse me for "causing trouble" by suggesting some honesty might be appropriate; I didn't realize that sort of thing was unacceptable around here.

    Control panel>Ignore>happy.

    And, just for your information, I used to have a great job at a games software company in Dundee; but my job, and that of many others, went down the river last year largely because of software piracy. Ever tried running a business where 100 of your products get stolen for every one you sell? No, I didn't think so or you might think theft is not such a good idea after all.

    Still, I don't suppose you regard stealing DS ROMs as theft, do you? Its not like there's a victim. Just some nameless, rich b******* that drives a Merc and runs a huge evil empire that exploits your basic needs by asking you to pay for the games you want.

    I hope somebody burgles your house and steals all your good stuff and the judge lets him off scott-free 'cos he thinks its quite reasonable for the guy to want your stuff for nothing and just go and take it.

    Have a VERY nice day :thumbsup:

    Not paying Taxes/duties is stealing from the whole country, if you feel so strongly about people paying for what they owe, you should've insisted that you paid your dues, and reported the officer that told you that.

    The country needs it more than a software company.

    Seems you know as much about economics as you do about customs and excise and honesty. i.e. Not much.

    That ignore function look like just what I need! :roll:

    Ah; marvelous, you have disappeared with your innane anti-honesty drivel.

    That's a nice thing to wish for. Not 'skewed thinking' by any chance?

    You're worse than the other bloke, you don't understand honesty, or irony :-D

    My ignore list has just increased by 100% - thanks :thumbsup:

    Enjoy your life of petty point-scoring.

    (A) I've heard of them, but I keep getting them mixed up. They are both taught in Maths, right?

    (B) You're welcome! Although you obviously won't see this, so not much point in writing it... :thinking:

    (C) Will do - I'm currently at 3,078!
