All merged

I bought an M3 Simply for my Nintendo DS, to avoid carrying around the tiny little cartridges, especially when I travel (as per last week's GUADEC where I didn't bring mine). After downloading the ROMs for my games from some shady websites (uhuh), the filenames were less than helpful, but I realised all the sites had nice little icons. Sure enough, they can be thumbnailed. Shame I can't move my Final Fantasy III or Mario Bros saves to the micro SD card...



The Browse Device functionality is now all merged in bluez-gnome, thanks Marcel! Now to clean up the widgets, and finish off the wizard.

Actually you can dump your save games, just use a tool like eepinator to dump the savegame and then you can convert the savegame to the one that fits with your gamecart.

Awesome!

I build and install our thumbnailer but Nautilus doesn't use it. When looking at the property of .nds file it says their MIME type is "application/octet-stream" and not "application@x-nintendo-ds-rom". I suppose that's why it doesn't work.

Guillaume, the mime-type is supposed to be "application/x-nintendo-ds-rom". Get the CVS version of shared-mime-info if you want to use the thumbnailer.

Sébastien, thanks for the pointer, but eepinator looks like it won't be usable for me before I leave on holidays on Saturday ;)

Heh, that's cool! Thanks. :)

Even though this is a minor feature, and useful to relatively few, is there any possibility it could be merged/added somewhere appropriate upstream? It's always nice when the small stuff just works out of the box!

Is this now a feature of current stable GNOME 2.20?

I bought a G6 DS REAL instead of the M3 Simply. Works very well, very convenient.
