    Is there any way to make DSOrganize (v 2.7 final) to do a soft-reset and you can return immediately to R4 DS Menu without have to turn off/turn on your DS?

    I did once manage to start MoonShell 1.71 with the RESET.MSE plugin from within DSOrganize's file browser.

    Hoewever, I can't seem to run any .nds's anymore from DSOrganize. You need some special files and loaders or something from DSOrganize's website.

    There is a peice of homebrew called exit.nds IIRC. It basiclly does that. You can use it in both DSO and moonshell. I have no idea if it still works, it probally does but it was made quite a while ago.

    edit-a quick search of it tuned up in my archive, I'll upload it but I doubt it'll work with the r4.

    Over there.
    I think that only the official releases, like ROMs with a number beside them, eg, 0560 Cooking Mama, can be reset because they are the actual games that Nintendo made. Homebrew is not official, so then it can't soft reset.

    I think? Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    It can't find addresses to hook in homebrew, but it can in commercial games because they all use a standard devkit, etc.

    Rudolph's EZ 3-in-1 tool soft resets the R4 when you select "expansion ram"

    He reverse engineered how the R4 does it in commercial games and added the code into his program on his own.

    Rudolph reverse-engineered the R4's soft-reset routine.

    And he hasn't made this knowledge available to anybody else? Has anybody asked?

    A month or two ago I did the most basic little hack to make Rudolph's Moonshell plugin a standalone .nds for this very purpose (rebooting DSO back to the R4 firmware). I've uploaded it here. Run it, wait a moment and shazam, you're back to the R4 menu. This, a 'shutdown.nds' I found somewhere, and some DSO shortcuts mean I rarely need to touch the power switch in DSO. [​IMG]

    Any chance you could make it into a plugin for DSO?
