    EZ5 Kernel 2.0 RC5 (7th of September 2009) release
    Improvements to extra features
    [​IMG]

    The EZTeam have released RC5 of the upcoming 2.0 kernel for the EZ5 (all versions). It sees improvements to extra features like the game guide and savestates (realtime save), big refinements to the skinning abilities and a few cosmetic changes.





    1. realtime save compatiblity improved
    2. realtime gameguide now can read two guide file(see new walkthrough tool 1.1 instruction, tool is is download). eEch file handle a manual bookmark and an automatic bootmark, L key to save a manual BM, R key to read. left and right will jump 5 pages
    3. skin.ini under ez5shell folder removed, simply add the named skin dat into skin folder. i.e, transfor.dat, name not long than 8 character.
    4. mul_language.ini in lang folder removed, simply add the named language ini into lang folder. i.e. English.ini
    5. Moonshell quick launch button- press the multimedia button (what used to be the help button) to launch moonshell 2 . Naturally you need moonshell installed on your EZ5 and it will warn you if you do not have it.

    Oh and for the power concious some tests were done the other day and apparently the 2.0 line is more efficient than the 1.9 line among other things. Read more Here

    The users that have reported on homebrew not working properly for the last few kernels the EZTeam is working on it but it did not make it into this release.

    Finally since the last post a new skinning tool for the EZ5 was made called EZ Skin forger which you can read about here . It should have RC5 ability by the time you read this.

    Thanks for the news! It's nice to see the EZ-Flash team providing so many great updates, the EZ-Flash used to be one of my least favorite carts due to the agonizing load times but ever since the 2.0 kernel it's been great and all the improvements are making it one of my favorites now.

    Yeah, this kernel 2.0 is going better and better.
    Enjoy the new skin engine and powerfull ez skin forger editor.
    EZ5 flashcarts are the only one in the market where skinners can decide where system's icons has to be on touchscreen.
    This feature is soo cool. [​IMG]

    The freedom you get in skinning will mean lots of amazing skins, imo.

    One thing that annoys me is that you can delete files from the card when you're not paying attention.
    If you press (x) instead of (a) to start a file and then press (a) without reading the text, it deletes the rom.
    It never happened to me, but my nephews (6 and 8 year old) did it a few times already. Those 2 buttons are too close to each other.

    Wouldn't it be better to change the key for deleting files to something else (eg. left shoulder+x or another combo)?
    Why is that feature in there anyway, if ppl want to delete roms, they can do that on a computer and then add other roms while they're at it.

    How is the real time guide? Better/equal to Cyclo? As soon as they go official (and no bugs!) I will get me an EZFVi cuz that's what I want the most and I can get one easier than an AK, lol

    @duy64 sorry about that; simply rename one of the skin files found in "EZ5Shell\skin" to Lady.dat and try again (pokemon: pkmn.dat and skin.dat (the "stock" skin) are available as standard).

    A minute or so after I this is typed I should have fixed the GBAtemp mirror.

    Reasons:
    The very first release had a picture of a lady (no nudity but close enough to offend someone somewhere) as a background, the EZTeam axed that version and I uploaded a new one. Alas the dat file was changed and it tried to load a non-existent skin giving you the error you saw.

    I will also say thanks to FuriousD on IRC for bringing this up.

    Apologies to all affected. If you also had the skin prior to about 22:30 (UK time) then you should be OK and anyone who downloads it in 7z form from GBAtemp should also be OK, the GBAtemp link also changed if someone shared it somewhere else.
    Edit: Just got word the EZTeam fixed their link as well.

    Wow this will let you view a game guide while playing the game. Phenomenal feature. I was going to get an Acekard, but damn, the EZ5 is looking great.

    Sure. Just use the walkthrough tool on your PC to build the .wlk file.
    This file must have the same name than your game but with extension .wlk.
    Copy it inside /RTSSAVE folder and enabled SR, RTS and IGG in Rom setting window.
    L+R+A+B during game to acces to the in-game menu. [​IMG]

    This version the loader breaks Scribblenauts so don't upgrade if you plan on plaging it. Wait until the next RC (hopefully).

    Updated the interneal firmware and using this.
    EZ-Vi doesnt even boot up... hang at loading screen.


    Man its been worse than R4's. I have all flashcarts and I really would rate this one as the worst...
    tried 3 samples so far with different microSD's and I must say "STAY AWAY FROM EZ Vi!!!!"
