    Is their anyway of zipping multiple roms in one go resulting in individual zips for each rom rather than doing each one individually as i got a ton of buggers i want to zip up in one go.

    By the way does pc enignie emu support zips?

    Winrar supports it, right click on the files and "Add to archive", in the 'files' tab there is an option 'Put each file to seperate archive'

    also in the 'General' tab there is an option 'Delete files after archiving', handy if they are already on a SMC.

    If you are using WinXP you shouldn't select more of 150 files at a time... it can lead to problems on some systems.
    Try 100 for a start.

    If that doesn't work, get UltimateZip (www.ultimatezip.com).
    You can find a file-by-file zipping in the Tools Menu.

    i use romzipper from emuware you just run the program, browse to the folder and give it the file extension eg .gb and it filters all the .gb files then zips them deleting the originals if you wish and even moving them to another folder as well
