OK, I know jurassicplayer is having a lot of fun with this, but I can't think why this needs to be kept all hush hush.
I use Moonshell to launch my
ROMS, and I can't say I was pleased to see this 'fix'. So, I found a simple way around it, which I guess is what is being referred to. This is what I did:
- Renamed any .nds files that no longer launch (which, by the way, includes a couple of homebrew titles). I changed them to .ds, but you could use anything as long as it matches with the next part.
- Changed the name of the file found in the extlink folder that passes .nds files on to YSMenu: from nds.YSloaderForMS2.nds to ds.YSloaderForMS2.nds
- Went back to getting on with my life.
You can leave off the third step if you like...
Oh and be aware that if you want to launch from within YSMenu for things like cheats
, you won't be able to rename the file. I suppose you could have two copies of the ROM: one with .nds for when you're in YSMenu, and one with .ds for Moonshell. They would both refer to the same save file as far as I know.
Finally, there is one downside to this. You will no longer get a unique icon for your ROMS; you'll have to put up with the generic file icon instead.
