moonshell 2.00 beta 4 and related news
A few updates.
Moonlight has posted several pieces of news on the subject of moonshell, most notably beta4 of moonshell 2.00. For those just joining us moonshell is a popular multimedia player (video in DPG format, audio in many formats, pictures and text) for the DS.
The author again thanks the translation teams and skinmakers and reminds you all that the format may well change before the final version, the author is however attempting to finalise the specification and hopes to do so before week's end.

Fixed

Awseome. Can only recommend using these Betas for watching DPG Movies, quality has highly improved from 1.71.

NesterDS is nice to have, but still has a long way to go before it can replace NesDS. Currently a lot of frames seem to get skipped, which makes emulation a bit choppy.

EDIT:
ganons, you don't need to DLDI patch with AK 2.1, that's only for carts that don't auto-DLDI patch. Works fine here with AKAIO. That error message you see is nothing to worry about.

An error was detected while trying to access the following disc or file. Please confirm the following

Was the ROM file of a correct DLDI patch started?
Please re-format the media and try again
Please try with different media from another manufacturer
