    well, thats good, but i think that was not the most important feature to implement.
    i really think the 2 separate fields for VMI/VMS, and the ability to load filesize and resource from a VMS without overwriting the other fields would have been more useful, at least for me. - DC tools and downloads

    Apologies for my noobishness but I've got a reason to host some VMU files at my site (about 90 of them or so). They are Japanese but I'm trying to get some US ones up first just to test them out.

    I've contacted my ISP and have put an .htaccess file in my root directory with the correct directives for vmi/vms file types.

    I've used this lovely tool to build VMI files for a simple, small test file (a codebreaker cheats file).

    I've put the renamed vms file (it was longer than 8 characters) and the VMI file (that points to the renamed file correctly, in the same directory) up on the web and I browse to the page with the link to the VMI file.

    When I click the link the DC responds with:

    "Failed to download the VMS File"

    How informative...I really could use some pointers as to what I'm doing wrong. I know there are many paths which are potentially problem causing here but I suppose I could use any drops of wisdom you experts could spare.

    This seems such a simple task! Sigh!

    (ps. Once I get over the hurdle of sharing this US save are there any potential problems I will have with the Japanese saves? They are all for ONE game actually: Daisenryaku 2001, thanks).

    Oh, and if it helps, the URL where I have my test links is at

    I have to rename most files that I get from the DC (I'm getting them to my computer as mail attachments) to have less than 8 characters in their titles. Will this affect anything adversely?

    Using a web based VMI generator it appears to work. Damnit the reason I'm doing this is to get away from dependencies on third parties for these files...

    At my wits end. There is no adequate documentation on the file format for DCI files. The FAQ at RAMTronics is almost useless (it's helpful in some regards but has gaping holes). I've gotten this to work with ONE small file. I'm trying the VMI creator at

    Does nobody know how to do this reliably?
