    Any way to make a Dir Invisible to the R4 OS but still have Moonshell be able to see it?
    Much like the _system_ Dir? I have a Dir called media & only need Moonshell to see it.
    So far I have tried changing the attributes & making the Dir Invisible, but that makes it
    Invisible to Moonshell as well. An I have tried changing the Dir name to _media_ & no luck. :'(

    You can change this behavior by editing the moonshl.ini file and changing 'Attribute_Hidden' to 0 (zero).

    You can also click the little icon in the top left of the touch screen in moonshell, click customize, go to the HiddenItem tab and uncheck 'hide hidden files'.

    Unchecking “hide hidden files” worked great, thanks for the heads up destructobot.

    You can only play media files in moonshell(or some other media player), so there is no need to have them - or the folders you put them in - cluttering up the game menu.
