Hi guys,
I need a little help with Moonshell 1.71. I've run the Moonshell setup.exe file and all runs well, but in the "ROM image" field, the NDSTT is no there. I just left all the cards ticked and none of them really works so well! I guess this is why we need patching. Any assistance with patching would b greatly be appreciated. Am I right in saying that the patched file just tells the NDS what card I'm using? Thanks in advance... dave

Thanks for the tip, The packaging did say DLDI auto patching!
I have found that when I select the system menu icon in mooshell 1.71, I get the following options;
1. Open text as Local
2. Open text as UTF-8
3. Open Text as UTF-16LE
4. Open text as UTF-16BE
5. Open Binary mode
6. L/R lock (now unlock)
7. Customise
- System1, System2, Hidden Item, Key Repeat
8. Change Backlight
9. RESET.MSE

So If I select;
Option 6 - and keep the "MoonShell_AUTOPATCH_Default" file highlighted on the top screen, Option 1,2,3,4 & 5 dispaly text files, that are of little use to me. If I do not have the "MoonShell_AUTOPATCH_Default" file highlighted on the top screen, Option 1,2,3,4 & 5 do nothing. Does this sound correct?

Option 6 - What is meant by lock/unlock?

Option 7 - I go into the customise menu, then decide to
a) Save and power off - works ok!
b) Save and soft reset - I get a blue screen of death telling me that my adapter [TTIO] is not supported (EID:01010101) - Any ideas?
c) Ignore and power off - works ok!
d) Ignore and soft reset - I get a blue screen of death telling me that my adapter [TTIO] is not supported (EID:01010101) - Any ideas?

Option 8 - Backlighting feature works just fine!

Option 9 - I get a blue screen of death telling me that my adapter [TTIO] is not supported (EID:01010101) - Any ideas?

The soft reset feature works just great on the NDSTT Firmware/Menu side, it's just Moonshell that's playing up!

All help is much appreciated. Thanks dave

Gambia, The
The "L/R Lock/Unlock" option just sets whether the DS reacts if you press L or R. If it's set to locked, nothing happens when you press L or R, so MoonShell doesn't change tracks etc. when you have the DS in your pocket.

The BSOD just means that soft reset isn't supported with the DSTT, meaning that MoonShell has no code to just switch back to the DSTT menu.

I'm not quite sure what you're trying to do here:

You are already in MoonShell, why are you trying to launch it from there?

Thanks Bud,
I've just been playing with the options to see if they worked and what they did.

With Option 6 - and keep the "MoonShell_AUTOPATCH_Default" file highlighted... - This was just an observation, and I noticed the soft reset pattern. I was curious as to whether the BSOD/Soft reset failure could be rectified for the NDSTT. Is the additional code something I would expect to possibly see in future Moonshell updates?

I'm trying to get familiar with the NDSTT, Moonshell 1.7 etc... I have started to play with Monshell skins. DSOrganise doesn't impress me all that much and I have found that skins for NDSTT are very rare. I managed to change the desktop images etc... (but I should leave that discussion for a new thread)

Thank you all for you help. It is greatly appreciated
Dave

What version of Moonshell are you using? 1.7?
Where did you get it from?
Did it come in a .zip format or was the moonshl folder and .nds file ready to go?
Did you run the Moonshell "setup.exe" file to get your folder and .nds file?
Where did you get the MoonShell_DSTT.nds file from, or did you rename it?

The MoonShell_AUTOPATCH_Default (No interface).nds file works with the DSTT. I found that you can select other types of cards during the setup.exe - some work and some don't.

What version of Moonshell are you using? 1.7? YES 1.71?

Where did you get it from? http://www.ndstt.co.uk/download.php

Did it come in a .zip format or was the moonshl folder and .nds file ready to go? Zip file, unzipped to the files previously mentioned

Did you run the Moonshell "setup.exe" file to get your folder and .nds file? was no setup file in the zip file

Where did you get the MoonShell_DSTT.nds file from, or did you rename it? http://www.ndstt.co.uk/download.php . it has not been renamed

The MoonShell_AUTOPATCH_Default (No interface).nds file works with the DSTT. I found that you can select other types of cards during the setup.exe - some work and some don't. where can i get a copy of this file?

I just ha a look at the DSTT UK site and saw the link for Moonshell. They have done the work for you, but obviously you've tried it and it doesn't work!

Infantile Paralysiser is the place to go, and here is the link for the moonshell app;

http://mdxonline.dyndns.org/archives/2007/...ver171_dl.shtml

Download either;
moonshell171p1_with_dpgtools131.zip mirror (13,731,802byte) MD5
moonshell171p1_with_dpgtools131.7z mirror (11,391,181byte) MD5

Then unzip,
Have your Micro SD connected to the pc,
Run the setup.exe file,
Select the Micro SD as the destination drive.

Set up Moonshell Installer like this
http://www.filecrunch.com/file/~h2eefk

And it should work. DSTT is not a default option in Moonshell 1.7, but that's ok, the MoonShell_AUTOPATCH_Default (No interface).nds works fine
