    Moonshell should just be in the moonshl folder in the root of the card. Skins go into their own folders (with a name of your choosing) which are then put in the CycloDS\Skins folder.

    By real time guide I assume you mean the text reader in game? For that you need one of the two beta firmwares, 1.5b1 or 1.5b2 and you access that from the in game menu, L+R+B+A+Y+X. Text files must be named exactly the same as the rom you wish to open it in. so rom1.nds would be rom1.txt

    I hope that answers your questions.

    I had exact same problem. Ok...skins. Go to the CycloDS folder. Create a folder named SKINS. Then put all your extracted skins inside.

    I will make use of this thread and ask if any of you know sites with anime skins for the cyclo? the official forum has few, so if any of you know another place to get skins I would appreciate if you could tell me.

    First go find your skins. I prefer to get them here:

    CycloDS Skins

    " Then unpack your skin if necessary. Put those files (*.bmp and .xml) in a random folder. Call it whatever you want. I'll call it SKINA here. Put the folder SKINA in the folder named skin in the CycloDS folder which can be found on your microSD card. You might have to create the folder "skin" first. In the end, it should look like this: X:\CycloDS\skin\SKINA
    If you want to add another skin, just follow the procedure once more and call the folder SKINB if you want to: X:\CycloDS\skin\SKINB
    In the end, you can choose between your now installed skins in the CycloDS Evolution settings menu. "
