Romulus ist ein junger, aber bereits sehr guter ROM-Manager. Von der Versions-Nummer sollte man sich nicht täuschen lassen.
Prinzipiell könnte man sagen, Romulus vereint die einfache Bedienung und Übersicht von Romcenter mit den leistungsstarken Features von crlmamepro!

Romulus is a ROM-tool for Windows which tries to combine the simple usage of RomCenter with the features of clrmamepro.

What´s new of 0.016 version ???

- ADDED scanner detail set list search in Google by CRC, MD5 and SHA-1.
- ADDED detection of number of CPU cores and dissable multicpu options if not multicore CPU exists in system.
- ADDED Multithread compression for RAR files forzing if available to compress and get extra compression speed.
- ADDED Jump to profile directory option at profiles list popup menu, this can be a good option to locate the current directory of the selected profile when showing all profiles at same time.
- ADDED Flashing taskbar when progress window ends and Romulus is not on top.
