    Thanks for the heads up.
    Moonlight has fixed his homebrew loader. Normally now we can launch homebrew with huge arm bin. 3MB size limit is gone. [​IMG]

    Also, in the test version he gave me last day, VRAM mode seems to work now on EZ5 and SCDSone.

    And last change i know, it's a bug fix about the thumbnail code where pictures with 8+3 name simply crash when file browser cursor highlight the file.

    I wonder when he will finally fix the most simple, but also most obvious error in Moonshell: The Play/Pause Button on videos. It's reversed. That means "Play" actually stops the video, while "Pause" starts it. On music it's correct, though. It shouldn't even be hard to fix, either.

    Yeah, that bugs me too. I've used the PSP skin before, that has them reversed again so they appear correctly. [​IMG]

    o.0 Um that is because they are commercial roms xD (I actually didn't realize this for the entire day until I tried using my PPSEDS to get to my ysmenu...somehow it just didn't get recognized as homebrew, so it kept giving me an error. It sort of defeated the purpose of me having PPSEDS on my DS anymore since I only used it to get to ysmenu when I needed to). As it turns out, Moonlight might not like pirates, always a wonderful thing xD so I'd give it +1.


    Reading some of the changes straight off of his website (I wonder why he makes it white though...), it seems that when you don't have "Start Moonshell from Recent Files", Moonshell doesn't record any of the files opened (I think that is good, then it could be used like a second application page).
    The volume is now separate for videos and the file list (so you can watch videos with max volume and when you close the video, your music could resume playing at 25% volume). There is also a new homebrew launcher for bigger files (less than 4mb though). It doesn't have the high compatibility like the ysmenu still though.
    Some functions were added to the moonshl2.ini (EnabledScreenSaver, and ArtworkBGColor for coverart I think).
    The text editor can change backlight brightness (L+X/Y) and there is a SoundEffectVolume level added to the textedit.ini (I like the text editor's hand writing thing although I can't seem to write an l differently from a 1 or a g from a q or 9.)

    Three suggestions for a pirate, you can either:
    1. Give up your pirating ways and join the path of light because in the end ninjas will win anyways xD. (Recommended)
    2. Take a leaf out of this thread to use the ysmenu/moonshell2 combo with moonshell 2.07 and no, I'm not flat out telling pirates how to keep pirating [​IMG]". If you can't figure out what I'm telling you from this, then you just weren't meant to be a pirate. Also, game icons won't be shown using this method.
    3. You can give up thinking and just take the easy way out and downgrade to Moonshell2.06. xD

    I forgot the IQue bug ! This one was fixed with the participation of EZ team. [​IMG]

    And to see that moonlight has integrated the ARM7 DLDI patch. This mean DSvideo is now supported.

    Thanks ChuckMcB for the change log.

    Not cool... I was liking using Moonshell as an all in 1 loader...

    I hope he changes it back... but Moonshell is still awesome.

    I don't think I will downgrade, because thats a bad solution.

    LOL! hahaha u are a mad haxxor bro [​IMG]


    BTW, on another tangent - I tried out this moonshell 2 release on my G6 REAL (trying to make use of that 1GB flash...) and I got it working, however many songs lag (everything perfect on acekard2)

    I wonder if it's the dodgy DLDI file. It seems to have problems depsite the cf speed tester showing it to have the fasted reads out of all my other microsd/flashcard combinations.

    Anyways, just reinforcing how much of a piece of junk it is, because M3 Team pretty much abandoned it ages ago... Wish they would update the software and fix things.

    So, it is possible to get moonshell 2.07 to load roms? In your post you said we can edit any file that was originally a text file, so I'm guessing we're suppose to do something with the config.ini?

    I'm confused, can you just tell us how to do it?

    Hm, I'm also interested in making Moonshell load commercial roms again as well, just don't know how to do it.
