    I have read a few topics on this site and I know how to change icons and strings, but I want to add to the Menu e.g. There is the games icon, multimedia icon and slot 2 icon, but I want to add another that goes straight to a homebrew like DSOrganise. Is there a way of doing this please give me help and any links to programs that do this. I want to be able to change links as well, e.g. change the multimedia slot to instead of loading _DS_MSHL.NDS in root it loads \DSOrganise\DSOrganise.nds

    Please help!!!
    Thanks in advance

    You could rename DSOrganise to _DS_MSHL.NDS and place it in the root, but i'm not sure if DSOrganize has to be in it's own folder

    You can't (easily) just "add" to it, write your own replacement. There are plenty of homebrews out there that load other .NDS files, take a look at them. Find an open source tool that does that. You could modify the NDS loading code from that into a menu letting you choose various NDS files to load. You can use r4crypt to decrypt the original menu to a .NDS so you can still load it from your new menu and the same tool will also let you encrypt your new menu to _DS_MENU.DAT so it can autoboot. Believe me, this is FAR simpler than trying to add any sort of action to the existing menu.
