    Can you upgrade the standard moonshell that the R4DS uses as an OS, with the new Moonshell 1.6 beta?
    If so can you please explain how? [​IMG]

    Thanks for all the help [​IMG]

    Yup. Put all your moonshell files in the "shell" folder and rename the moonshell nds to "_DS_MSHL.NDS"

    EDIT: Apparently still works if you leave the folder name as "moonshl"

    The new version uses a new folder which is '/moonshl'.
    So start by deleting the shell folder in your R4 drive, then run the setup and after selecting the R4tf driver thing only. Make it install it in the R4 drive.

    Then afterwards do as Katalyst said, rename the .nds to "_DS_MSHL.NDS"

    I did what Katalyst said, but instead, I got rid of the shell folder and replaced it with the newer "moonshl" folder.

    It works.

    I believe the author made it optimized for R4.
    Before, MP3's and movies would stutter. With this new version, they do not.

    The moonshell program will work with either the shell (moonshl) folder existing or not. But the plugins won't be supported, such as viewing pictures, playing music won't work. Only dpg playback will work.

    Weird. Everything still works here. From pictures, to music, to videos. [​IMG] Since I gotta put Final Beta 4 on there now, I'll probably go ahead and leave this one as moonshl ;o
