    This is for the new GBATemp bounty for non-developers.
    We just make tutorials/FAQs for the chance to win different prizes for different things.
    I'm entering for NDS and will update with new tutorial entrys every time I make a new one.

    Lets get started with a dead easy tutorial for the kind that don't understand easily or fastly.
    How to Start a Commercial or Homebrew .NDS file via Moonshell
    The best thing is that you don't even have to download Moonshell!

    1.
    Locate your carts MicroSD holding all required files and folders.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    2.
    Now double-click into your MicroSD. If you already have moonshell folder on your card, just delete ALL the files and folders from it and your ready, if not, then make a folder called "moonshl" and go back to the root of your card.

    3.
    Now go into your games folder if you have one and select your Commercial ROM or Hombrew and copy it [If your using EDGE you can only use Hombrew]

    4.

    Now go back to your moonshl folder and go into it.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    5.

    Paste your recently copied .NDS file into your moonshl folder.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    6.

    Right-click on that file and rename it. You will have to rename it to "moonshell.nds" for this to work.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    7.

    Once done, take out your MicroSD and insert it into your, inserting your cart into your system. Boot it up and tap the middle button and voila! You are automatically running your file!

    Any questions you have ask below, or if you feel dumb about what happened and it's not working, PM me and you can get answer, Dumb-free [​IMG]
    I asked how to do this using askGBATemp and it got answered with my testing. Most Tempers know how to do this but some don't so yeah [​IMG]

    This isn't a very good tutorial IMO. It's just telling you how to make the MoonShell shortcut present on some cards load something else. Which, no offence, is something most people could work out themselves I reckon. But still, good effort, well laid out etc., hopefully you'll be able to contribute some really good tutorials in the future. Maybe you'll even win a prize [​IMG]

    They are called noobs for a reason.

    Also, why is this on 3DS thread? IMO, it gives noobs hope about 3DS hacking. Which would spew out more worthless threads asking about this and that, and "I have an idea".

    Sorry, thought it was NDS and also this is my first one which I said is very easy and Ultra N00b friendly.
    Also there is lots of pictures because I went overboard when taking them.
