    About Moonshell

    Moonshell 2 is by far the most advanced media player for the DS. This application is the successor to the original Moonshell. The author of this application is called Moonlight (or Infinite Paralyser originally). Moonshell 2 currently supports the following file formats:
    -Music Formats: MP1, MP2, MP3, OGG, WAV, M4A, AAC, WMA, TTA, MID, RCP, R36
    -DPG encoded video
    -MOD formats: MOD, IT, MTM, S3M, XM, 669, MED, STM, AMF, GDM, ULT, UNI, ASY, IMF, OKT, STX
    -Chiptune formats: SPC, NSF, GBS, HES, AY, SAP, KSS
    -Playlist formats: M3U, WPL
    -Picture formats: JPG, BMP, GIF (non-animated), PNG, PSD
    -Text Files


    Setup Guide/Instructions

    To install Moonshell 2, first, download the package. Then, extract the package with an archiving utility. The most commonly used are 7-zip, WinRAR, and WinZip. You should extract it to somewhere with easy access such as the desktop. Then DLDI patch it if needed. (I turns out that this is the only application that needs DLDI patching with the TTDS). Insert the Micro SD Adapter into a USB port. Copy the moonshl2 folder onto the root of your Micro SD Card, and place the monnshl2.nds anywhere on your Micro SD card.After that, safely remove the hardware, and open your DS. Open Moonshell 2 now, then it will automatically prompt you to change the language. If you need to change it later, just open Languageselect.exe from you computer. To install Moonshell 2 as your R4's default media player, rename moonshl2.nds into _DS_MSHL.nds To set it as your CycloDS default media player, create an new folder on the root of you card called moonshl. Then rename moonshl2.nds into Moonshell.nds. It will can now be accessed from the center button.

    TONS of updates. I will transform this from a skin index, to a full, Index, Faq and Guide. I will ask a mod to change the Topic Title soon, after I finish the Faq and Guide parts.

    When moonshell 2 boots up, there's like a splash animation, right? As in the one with the wavy loading line. Well, splash animations change them.

    Splash animations = the animation you see on the top screen during boot up and disk check (if you have that on).
