    Moonshell 2 project complete
    The Moonshell 2 project is now complete with 2.10
    [​IMG]
    The Moonshell 2 project is Now complete As Moonlight has released Version 2.10 stable to the public.

    Often considered one of the best and most used homebrews for the Nintendo DS, I would like to thank Moonlight on behalf of the DS homebrew community for her amazing work on my favourite homebrew and perhaps one of the most ambitious DS homebrew projects to date.

    Using the limited DS hardware Moonshell is capable of playing movies, many music formats, view photos, launch homebrew, and read txt files.

    Supported file formats:

    Enjoy and thanks to Moonlight and all the contributors for testing and translation

    I like the music player of this homebrew, I find it faster to navigate a folder of music using the built-in music player.
    I also like the touch controls of the music player, it is better than using the L and R buttons to seek.

    Now if only somebody used Moonshell 2 to make a great MS Paint Clone with the bucket, paint brush, pencil, line, square, cycle, and select tools, as well as the ability to save/load .bmp files up to a 1200x1000pix ratio.
    Also having the ability to edit colours would be nice as well as a FREAKIN' UNDO BUTTON as the touch screen in DS home brew can be a bit iffy at times.

    I have a DSi and I prefer to use Moonshell2 over the stupid built-in music player the DSi has, mainly because you have to convert your music and the last time I converted a good song and tried to play it on the DSi's Sound App it was all grainy and was slowing down my DSi. Why they hell did Nintnedo not use the .MP3 format!?

    Must have been something wrong with the converter or with the original song, then, because that shouldn't happen under normal circumstances.

    Nitendo didn't use MP3 because MP3's not actually a good format for music nowadays. Newer formats like AAC can achieve similar or better quality at lower bitrates, which directly translates into a lower filesize without degradation in quality.

    Also the MP3 format is patent-restricted, and it's a big jumble on who actually owns the patents for which part of the format, but with AAC it's clear-cut, you only need a licence for the codec, so it's safer for Nintendo to use.

    It's really come a long way since the first moonshell.

    Never liked this, especially because I thought the interface was horrible and because viewing pictures caused it to freeze often, but her/his(?) work should be appreciated anyway since it obviously was useful for many people.

    I thought moonlight stoped the development of moonshell????
    The only thing that is missing from moonshell Imo is a activatable buffer to make certain parts of movies more clear.

    This homebrew means more then some commercial games released over the years this is different.
    This homebrew can be called a classic if we talk about ds homebrew.

    Huh, I didn't know Moonlight was female either. Anyway, I would also like to thank her...I use her app just about every day for some reason or another, it's easily one of the best and most useful homebrews for the DS as far as I'm concerned. [​IMG]

    Oh yeah, and many thanks for Morning Timer as well...don't have an alarm clock and don't need to buy one because of this app.

    We can already find all moonshell version on this filetrip link : http://filetrip.net/file.php?id=9730 [​IMG]

    It's a waste of disk place to have uploaded the zip version.

    Moonlight has added 4 files since my last upload yesterday (4 files inside DKPr21).
    New 7zip auto-extract file updated on filetrip.

    Ps : i doubt moonlight is a woman, but who care. [​IMG]

    Thanks for all Moonlight !

    Awesome! I too didn't know moonlight was a female, as if it matter, but this homebrew is widely used with me in my day to day life. I constantly listen to music on my ds and moonshell has made it great to do so as well as watch movies. I remember the days when moonshell v1 came out and we were all on the lik-sang website talking about it.
