    Moonshell v.1.5 & DPGTools v.1.2 out

    Great fixes and improvements abroad







    The best homebrew application for movies, MP3s, pictures and more has come to us again with an all new version here. Let's look at the the information straight from the official change log:



    · Corresponded to EZ4/DSLink. I wish to express my deep gratitude to Rudolph.

    · The cartridge of enhancing the memory of DS browser' can be used for the cache memory.

    · The resume item was added. (sound volume, reproduction mode, and NDSLite backlight brightness)

    · ResumeUsingWhileMusicPlaying item was added to [System] section of global.ini. The resume is preserved while performing the tune.

    · The DPG format was renewed. As for the DPG file made with a new encoder, seek is fast and the image doesn't fall into disorder either. Especially, it is remarkable in a long video.



    The fix to the movie desync issue is a very welcome and long-awaited fix. Try it out today!

    No, this means if you have bought the DS Browser, you can put in the Memory Cartridge in slot 2 and if will be used as a cache memory.

    I would assume this only works if you are running Moonshell from slot-1.

    Also, I hope the new player in Moonshell is backwards compatible with older DPG videos. If not, I'll probably stick with the older version I have.

    Cool thing I just tried with the new dpgtools12 It did a .flv ,dpgtools had no errors. I tried to confirm with dpgshow but it had an error. I think it may be dpgshow though.

    Someone else please try an flv.

    So like, what exactly is all this "Resume" stuff? Also, since I have the older version of Moonshell on my Supercard Lite, do I have to delete it from my MicroSD card and replace it with this version?

    so, does this mean that dpgtools is the better conversion tool until we get an update from batchdpg?

    Well, I updated my guide to reflect the unofficial update of BatchDPG by a staff of uTorrent (aka Firon)

    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=35547

    I haven't tried DPGTools yet, but I'll give her a go later today.

    Updated video huh, just as I had finished a new matrix and finished documenting/pushing moonshells video capabilities, still improvement is very much welcomed.
    A question I will answer for myself shortly but does anyone know if the video headers were changed for this update?
    edit:
    it seems there was some tweaking done to things: to the hex editor it would seem.

    Holey crap batman it does convert .flv on the fly! Now I dont have to convert it into divx first or something, but the only downfall is that some .flv files work and some do, so its a hit or miss. One more thing, I enjoyed the resume feature in that whatever song you are playing and you shut off your ds and when you go back and reboot moonshell it takes to back to where you stop listening and resume! Now all I need is know how to customize your clock!

    WOW, seek time is like 10x faster, but the quality is pretty low compared to BatchDPG. Can't wait for the update!

    Coincidentally, I picked up BatchDPG development just a few days ago, so I've already been working on implementing the new DPG2 format. If you haven't already figured out the header changes yourself, you can find them at http://www.gbatmw.net/index.php?topic=2281.0.

    What new matrix, might I ask?
    Also, I've found a lot of what does and doesn't work with Moonshell. [​IMG]

    If only someone could at least optimize the MP2 decoder a little. Or at least tell Infantile what the specific problems are (damn you, language barrier). Using PAMs 1-3 cause skips if the bitrate is above 128, so that's kind of lame.
