    Okay, so I am R4 newbie, (I had a DS-X for a long time, but got sick of some of the problems.) Anyway, is there any way to make the system auto pick "games" at startup? Just curious. It seems like with all moonshell stuff it would be possible.


    Thanks,

    If you place all of the game in the root it will list all of your games when you click the option, press select and it will show your saves.

    I wouldn't say it's impossible.
    You could dump the R4's firmware, reverse engineer and hack it, then flash the R4 with your modified firmware.
    Its just really difficult. =P

    what is this guy asking?

    does he mean to go straight to the games when the R4 boots?

    why the hell would you want that?

    He wants his R4 to pick the Games option when it starts.

    Yeah, my wacky idea's only possible on the assumption that the chip's rewritable or you swap it out for a new one.

    So does the .DAT actually control how the menus work?

    Well there is somewhere a program called R4Decrypt.
    It was something about that the _DS_MENU.dat is just a encrypted rom.

    So yes you could hack the firmware yourself.
    But remember you could make very bad things like brick your R4 by doing that.

    Well, you could make it so that when you went to the moonshell button it'd boot a game instead of moonshell. You'd just need to delete moonshell.nds and replace it with a game, using the same name. You'd also need to be sure to rename the save to be moonshell.sav, but yeah.

    But, you can't do that to more than a single game at a time.
