    Hi Everyone,

    I feel like an idiot, but I have two questions regarding what is the proper way to turn off my new DS. I have Moonshell 2.00 Beta and YSMenu installed. When I am in YSMenu, do I just turn off the DS using the Power switch or is there a proper way to do it thru YSMenu? Same question for when I am in Moonshell; do I just turn off the DS using the Power switch or is there a proper way to do it thru Moonshell?

    Thanks in advance,

    Otter

    I just flip the switch. I have YSMENU to and I just use the power switch. Same with MoonShell.

    The DS is meant to be turned off at any moment. You will not hurt anything unless you power off while in the middle of saving your game, and even then the worst that can happen is that you'd lose your save file.

    Well yes, that's true. So few people install FlashMe anymore that it slipped my mind.

    there was a way in moonshell 1 to turn off your ds without using the power button. not sure about moonshell 2 though. but its alot easier just to hit the switch ya wont hurt anything

    That way was accessing the settings menu and a window will pop up when you try to exit the settings asking if you want MoonShell to soft-reset or turn off the DS.

    Actually, even though people have already said that it's okay to turn the DS off with the power switch and so on, I recall that there was an application literally called "POWEROFF.NDS" that did exactly what it's called. I still have it on my R4, and it does work.

    Thanks for all of the answers! I'm so used to using computers that I always get the feeling like I am "pulling the plug" on the DS when I use the power switch.

    Mind if you could upload that .nds file to share? There's a few things that can try with that.

    Oh, sure. Of course if the original maker doesn't want it around, I'll have to take it down...but for something like this, he shouldn't mind.
