    Moonshell 2.00 beta 2 released
    Quick update
    Moonlight has posted news about beta 2 of the upcoming moonshell 2.00. Changelog is a bit smaller but it aims to be a bugfix release. The author has stressed that the skin makeup/layout and language files will probably change before the end so skin/translation authors should be prepared to change things with each update or wait for a final release. For those just hearing of moonshell it is an application for the DS that plays video (DPG format), audio (many formats), text and pictures as well as launching homebrew code for some carts.

    Safe to assume that this version also doesn't work on CycloDS?

    wow! Does it include the DS? That's a really neat feature! Probably won't see much use until Cyclo decides to add that to their loader. RTS + Screenshots!

    Way to go, Moonlight =D

    The English translation does not seem to be complete, but if you click OK past the first screen you can still browse and play media fine.

    Does it take screenshots of both screens?? I think I recall team cyclops stating that it was only possible to take a snapshot of one screen?

    You can make Cyclo recognize moonshell 2 to their loader.

    Here's How:
    ___________________
    1. make a folder at the root of your microsd. Name it " moonshl "
    2. Place the .nds file(of beta 2) into " moonshl "
    3. Rename that file "moonshell.nds"
    4. Place the "moonshl2" folder onto the root of your microsd

    Put in DS and enjoy!

    If I remember correctly, I posted a recommendation that they give the option of disabling L and R when watching movies. Well they got part of that recommendation I guess, able to disable L and R when closing the screen.

    Thanks Moonshell team! Definitely looking forward to final release.

    Thanks for the tip Zarkz.

    geokilla, try posting your suggestion again as I'm seeing Moonlight replying and adding things to the Moonshell2 'to do' list here.
