    This looks slick. Awesome. Brilliant. But... is it like FWNitro? [​IMG] If so, I'll wait for some feedback. I'd change the firmware on my DS, but only if it's stable, can be removed, etc.

    No it's just a app
    But pretty useless as it won't boot nds files(tested)

    Oh, just an app? Oh... Then I'll try it for myself. Any advantages over a normal, standard GUI? On paper, at least, of course.

    i really like the idea and concept of this.

    when i tried to load something with it (homebrew or commercial) it simply locks up.
    thats on an R4 with the 1.17 firmware.

    It also locks up when it's trying to load the animanatee icon.

    have a nice day.

    Sorry guys, it doesn't work at all well with the R4, I'm surprised it even boots at all, never mind attempt to load something.

    Does it work on other cards? I don't have much to test it on I'm afraid.

    Please remember to extract the menu_skin folder to the root of the card, I've been told it wont run without it.

    Yea, i was surprised it booted on the R4. I'm glad I was able to at least mess around with it, it's a VERY nice shell. The only problem is it is not efficient with loading time, the Neo splash screen stays for a while and then it loads slowly. I'm sure future releases will be faster.

    Not many bugs, and the dock movement is surprisingly well done and easy to use.

    I tried booting it in place of the R4 kernel by encrypting it, but it doesn't even boot with this method. Too bad, I'd really like to use it actually.

    The splash screen is not timed, just tap the screen to get past it. I think the R4 problem is the R4's fault, not DSisions, I don't think R4 team put as much effort into homebrew compatibility as other cards do, shame considering how popular the card is.

    Can't get it to work on a Fire Card any ideas? I can't seem to get any homebrew to work on it, that's why I'm trying this!

    I am recoding DSision from scratch, it currently (unreleased version) still works on R4, TTDS ans Neoflash R6Gold. Does anyone have and ideas for features they would like to see, or bugs they would like fixed from the old version?


    [edit] Should I start a new topic for this? [/edit]

    Works great on Max Media Dock. Boots homebrew and everything! How about auto-DLDI patching... The MMD community is quickly falling apart due to the fact that the cart retail game compatibility is about 20% and the normal startup GUI sucks. Thanks to your GUI atleast we can have skinning support and a better look... but.. well.
