Wow, that was really fast. It seems to be working on my machine also.

There, I Erik uploaded the fixed version. Seems to work fine on my machine now.

@cosmo: That problem can't exist on windows because that code is in a #ifndef _WIN32. Good catch though. It appears that someone (Alcaro?) replaced the call to gets (which someone complained about) with fgets in ~August 2018 without testing the fix, and fgets does include the terminating newline, unlike gets.

A very useful tool. But it doesn't work in Linux as expected. When run without the filename in the command line, it fails every time.
I did find a fix though, that only requires adding one line to the cpp file. Here is a patch file that I made to add this line, all you need to do is run the following before compiling the program,
patch romclean.cpp romclean.patch

and that will fix the problem. I don't have a Windows machine set up right now, so I don't know if it will work there, or even if the problem exists in Windows.

It has been fixed

Good tool, I like how you can not download it and just use it in your browser. I would like the features in the .exe to be added to the browser version. Other than that, this is a useful tool and would definitely recommend it to a friend if they weren't sure if their SMW ROM was clean. - 5/5

It's a very useful tool.

This tool no longer compiles on Linux. It says that "gets" was not declared. Looked up the error and everything I'm finding is saying "gets" is deprecated and should never ever be used under any circumstances. I used this in the past and it worked great, but it would be great if this was fixed.

Uh how do I undo my vote?
Posted by: nyanpasu64 - | Link
but what if you can't find an .smc to save your life?

EDIT: Never mind. The .exe file creates a .smc file out of an .sfc file.
Posted by: KBY30 - | Link
.sfc isn't as compatible as .smc so you're better off using a .smc file
Posted by: TheBiob - | Link
I check my original ROM (cleaned) and it still create a clean file but the extension is .smc not .sfc (I use .sfc extension)
And my .sfc is deleted :(

A false positive. SMWC has got guidelines to not upload viruses or any other malware. People who did it get punished pretty hard with the tool being deleted, obviously. It's also highly unlikely that a mod (deliberately) uploads a virus and Alcaro is one.

why can't i clean my rom when it is in a huge size
Posted by: h.carrell - | Link
Leftover from when it did like Asar and asked for filenames if it wasn't given one already.

Nice unused static bool interactive=false; :P
Posted by: Vitor Vilela - | Link
Now uses Windows native file dialogs instead of demanding filenames via command line.
Posted by: Alcaro - | Link
What are the changes?
