I was thinking 'can you use a slot2 moonshell and access media from slot1'.
i knew this could be possible. so i started doing some experiment.
and came up with a conclusion. IT WORKS.

1.install the slot1 version of moonshell onto your supercard.
2.install the supercard version of moonshell onto your supercard.
3.make sure you have moonshell installed correctly onto your slot one card.
4.make sure you have films/images/music etc on the slot one.
5.run moonshell on the supercard( the moonshell for the slot one)
6. BANG, you can watch films/music/images that are on your slot one card from your supercard!
7.soft reset on moonshell for the slot1 that is on the supercard, reboots it to the slot1 main menu.
8.install the supercard moonshell onto your slot1 card. (so you have both versions of moonshell on the slot1 and supercard.
go on different version of moonshell to boot up what you want. supercard/slot1.

Note-Install the moon shell with the boot .nds box checked.(only for slot2)

TESTERS NEEDED.

USE DIFFERENT SLOT1 AND SLOT2 CARDS AND USE DIFFERENT COMBINATIONS AND POST IN HERE WHETHER IT WORKS.

I figured this out a few months ago when I ran an R4 patched Moonshell on my M3 Lite, but that was with no SDHC in the M3. I tried it with my 4GB SDHC in the M3 Lite and running Moonshell off of the R4, and it didn't work. So pretty much: M3 Lite->R4=OK, R4->M3 Lite=OK, and R4->M3 Lite with SDHC=No. I'm pretty sure it will work between any carts with DLDI, as long as the card you run it from doesn't have auto DLDI patching. Even then, most auto DLDI carts can disable the DLDI with a key press or something. I know you can disable it on the CycloDS Evo and the EDGE by holding Select when you launch the homebrew.

using psychowoods dldi tool you can even lock out the mechanism after patching it for preventing autopatching altogether.

It's not that complicated. If you patch the moonshell.nds file (or any .nds file for that matter) with the DLDI driver for the slot 2 cart, you can run it from slot 1 and access the files in slot 2 (or vice versa). You will need to put the moonshl folder on the same cart that you want to put the media files on.

Note that if the cart you're running the .nds file from has autopatching you'll need to use NoAutoPatch (this is built in to DLDI Right Click).


p.s. Your avatar and sig are both over the file size limit.

There's even a "Dual DLDI" Dual slot file browser.



Also, MAD CAPITALS are hard to read and don't be a credit whore. Unless you spent your own time writing it, it's not really yours to keep.

Indeed, very old news. NDS games have no clue where they're launched from, so once they're launched it's all up to the DLDI file to dictate where the media files are. This has been known for a while.
