FatX Renamer Update

It’s been a long time coming, but I’ve updated FatX Renamer, a tool you can use to rename files so that they are compatible with your modded XBox. After a bit of feedback, I’ve made the following tiny adjustments:

  • Added code to remove most accented characters e.g. Gr??en becomes Grusen (ugly but effective)
  • Directory tree is now multithreaded, so drive and folders are populated in the background.
  • More robust (albeit slower) way of retrieving drive information (removed reliance on old-school sccrun.dll)

So there you have it. Nothing major, and all the usual caveats about running at your own risk apply. I take no responsibility if this software causes your computer to let the magic smoke out.

  1. FatXRenamer works pretty good but certain folders give this error:

    Oops, I couldn’t scan the directory due to an error. The error was:
    Length cannot be less than zero.
    Parameter name: length

    I don’t see anything peculiar about the directory. Can you tell me why it does this/
