    I'm sticking to moonshell, I'm never going to use the calender or calculator or any of that extra stuff, I'm just going to listen to mp3s, watch videos, and maybe put some pictures on it. And I currently have a nice and peaceful looking skin, makes it pretty, [​IMG]

    I currently have 5 episodes of FLCL in dpg format, I still need to convert the last one. The 5 episodes together are 286 MB, each episodes ranges from 50-60MB. With the last episode, it will be 336-346 MB total. I've used up 612 MB in roms so far (15 games) and depending on the last episode of FLCL, I'll have 55-70 MB left over for saves and maybe some mp3s and pics. This is all on a 1 GB microSD

    the only reason I see to have moonshell there is to play movies on, but I prefer to use my PSP for that. However, my center icon is still moonshell, since whenever you hover over it, it says "multimedia", and since DSO isn't a multimedia app, I'd go insane.

    Simply rename it's binary to _DS_MNSL.nds (or whatever it's called). You may also try hex-editing the .dat file to change Multimedia to whatever you want. [​IMG]

    the only thing the moonshell i like is the video playing feature.
    today i was trying to look at some pictures through moonshell, but some didnt load

    so i actually went over to DSOrganize to look at pictures lol [​IMG]
    also, it is nice that you can choose to view or hide hidden files at the DSOrganize options.

    like i made a folder hidden so it wouldnt show up on the games menu, but later i couldnt access it on moonshell. so i simply went to DSO and could easily view the hidden folder through a change in the options.

    and after changing the icons, DSO now looks pretty nifty! so i like it a lot.

    Out of interest, how do you convert standard video formats to .dpg? I tried once but it failed on the audio track :-( Is there a nice easy to follow guide somewhere?

    anyone have any luck playing AAC files in Moonshell without scratches? recommended encoding settings?
    forget dsorganize for AAC, it skips so much and freezes my ds in the process

    See, I'm going to have my roms (clean) and saves on my 1 GB microSD for my R4, and then i plan on using my 2 GB and supercard SD with moonshell to play movies and mp3's. So I'm wondering if i should change the media (middle) icon to boot to DSOrganize? I've never used it, but it could be handy to have a calculator (college student) as well as other items at hand. No clue how i would get moonshell or dsorganize to work though, never tried that stuff.

    i haven't been able to play any with moonshell but with the limited files i've tried on DSOrganise it has worked perfectly fine. (latest version for reference).
