.NES is allowed, so I think .UNF should be allowed too.

I've added .unf extension and a few others. Now I need a ROM that plays "The Terrible Secret of Space", called "pak_chooie.unf".

How about adding .IPS next?

For extensions in a category that did not exist, I first have to add the category ("Patch files"). What other patch formats in this category are desired?

IPS, UPS, XDELTA, BPS, anything else?
As for what is actually used, IPS is by far used the most, since many patches don't need to move data around.

edit: List of all patching tools from Romhacking.net: http://www.romhacking.net/?page=utiliti ... lsearch=Go

File extensions:
.ips
.xdelta3
.bps (beat)
.bdf (bdiff)
.pat/.ffp (fileflower patch)
.ups
.ppf (playstation patch format)
.jfp (just F patch)
.rup (NINJA patch)
.gdiff

I've added support for these extensions, under the extension group called "Patch Files".

Attached a test .ips file just as proof.

Can I request the .py file extension? I use python to build simple tools for working with NES code sometimes and they might be helpful to share. (Is there a security risk with .py or is everything just disallowed by default?)

Correct; it's a whitelist. But py.zip should be fine because it sees only the extension of the outermost container.

Rephrased: the forum software only looks at everything past the last dot found in the filename. ("Container"? Damn Python freaks... ;P) And yes, by default nothing is permitted. I can't find a good screenshot of the control panel that controls this (all the stuff I find is either outdated or obfuscated or in a foreign language) else I'd show you and you'd understand the UI/model a bit better.

I've added the following extensions as permissible:

.py
.php
.bmp
.dmg
.lha
.lzh

Could you add .nesproject files for NESICIDE?

Is there a spec for .nesproject files? I'm trying to find why not to just zip them.

Post subject:  Re: Please add .UNF extension to the list of allowed files

I've added .nesproject (for Tepples: I added it to "Downloadable Files" because it's the only description/section/behaviour that makes the most sense for what it is. I didn't want to add it to Plain Text, etc...)
