    Okay.....nobody has answered yet. My friend's moonshell is chinese and he has a DS lite which sorta cracked on the side of the DS Lite (lol) and everytime he starts moonshell all he gets is the top screen BLUE and bottom screen BLACK. Can anyone help?

    Then, the loading problems. I am trying to get WORKING DS roms but sometimes it has a loading error and it doesn't work! Can someone tell me WHAT to do? I have the latest kernel of the R4DS (1.18) and that's it.......

    These roms don't work for me:

    Megaman Star Force ( [​IMG] )
    The World Ends With You
    Advance Wars: Days of Ruin
    D*ragon Quest Monsters: Joker

    Can someone HELP????

    post more details, such as content of the microSD (also folder structure), etc.
    You are talking about one flash cart/microSD with two problems(moonshell and ROM loading)?

    umm... for your problem, copy the ENTIRE contents of your mcroSD onto your PC and then reformat it. then copy everything back. helped me. If the R4 firmware is patched (with yasu's R4bugfix2) then some games don't work with cheats.
    With moonshell, GET A NEW VERSION!'nuff said

    R4DS always come with the latest Moonshell

    Top screen blue and bottom screen black is the background when Moonshell is loading. Really. is there any letters or words on both of the screens? If so, then re-install your firmware, maybe the moonshell folder was not installed correctly.

    try to use English version of v1.18, that might help you to understand what is displayed there

    R4DS kernel v1.18 should work with all the games you typed. TWEWY was fixed in 1.17. Megaman, Advance Wars, and Dragon Quest should work fine too. I personally is playing TWEWY, Advance Wras, and Megaman. it might be

    1.the contact is lost, I can't help much, I'm no R4 techinician
    2.the ROM is broken, try to download a new one
    3.your microSD is broken or faulty, try to re-format it
    4.your R4 is faulty, buy a new R4
    5.your NDS is faulty, try to use your R4 in different NDS, or different microSD, that might give a different result

    wrong.

    how can u expect a product that could be on the shelves for weeks or even months to have the latest update? (that's y they don't even ship r4s with the cd anymore. it's pointless).besides, just google a new one, it seems like urs is corrupted or something.

    Is really there a new Moonshell? Maybe I'm outdated, I never actually try to find a Moonshell. I didn't use it much, just for reading guides.

    Oh, and for Cyclone, try to find someone with R4 and working Moonshell. Just copy his Moonshellfolder, that might work. My brother in law did the same thing, he copied mine

    first, moonshell is not going to be updated anymore, so yes, 1.18 or 1.17 would come with the "latest" or the final version of moonshell.

    1. Try playing your game with soft reset off.

    2. Try playing your game with no cheats.

    3. Degrade your R4 to 1.17 and see if it works.

    4. Make sure you got your 1.18 kernel from a trusted site

    5. Format your microSD (dont forget to backup your files) and try again


    And please post more info. did it work on previous firmwares? you sure you are not getting roms from wierd sites?

    I did it! I made it work! Do you want to know what I did?
    I reformatted my R4 (with back-up files)
    Then I redownloaded v.1.18 kernel and then they work! AWESOME!
