    Hi guys, .. just a quick question

    I have a M3 Simply and a M3 Lite. When I want to play GBA games I press slot 2 from the M3 Simply and then press Start after the M3 Lite has loaded in the NDS bit. What I want to do is skip the pressing Start bit and have the M3 Lite boot into GBA mode automatically. [​IMG]

    Is this possible at all? I don't see any options in the M3 Lite to start in GBA mode at all. TIA

    OK

    1st attempt, put it into my M3 Lite root - nothing happened
    2nd attempt, put it into M3 Simply root and started via Slot2 button - loaded M3 Lite in NDS mode
    3rd attempt, Started gbaswitch.nds via moonshell, works but there is graphical corruption around the GBA screen where you can still see moonshell behind it + constant flickering

    oh well I guess I'll stick to pressing Start [​IMG] thanks for the help

    Heh, you just start gbaswitch.nds from your M3 Simply Games menu.

    Optionally, rename gbaswitch.nds to _DS_MSHL.nds so you can start it using the Media button in the M3 Simply menu (you can rename the original _DS_MSHL.nds to MoonShell.nds to still be able to use MoonShell).

    Is there a way to rename it so that it uses the "Boot Slot 2" button rather than the media button?
