    I think that would be the image viewer the poster above you is referring to.

    EDIT: More specifically, it takes a number of images and creates a .ipk file which works with the .nds included and it'll display your images, as well a thumbnail index of them. It's actually pretty cool and definitely loads bigger images (1600x1600 for instance) a lot faster.

    ok i downloaded the imageviewer now. i'm having some troubles on img2ipk. i have a folder with three pictures, i dragged the folder to the img2ipk, but it says "the system cannot find the path specified".

    and how can i view the example ipk file? i copied it together with the .nds file in my SD card but it says "not supported.


    thanks for those who'll reply.

    Copy both the .ipk and the .nds to the same folder, then boot the .nds. As far as that error goes, I got the same error the first time as well. I think it's due to some default setting. Just go to Option>IPK file output folder and set that, then try to do it again and it should be fine.

    i got the img2ipk working! thanks!

    but... (not again) i now have the ipk file for the pictures and put it in an empty folder along with the NDS file. so i opened moonshell and i tried opening the ipk file but it says "not support ext.IPK". I also tried opening the NDS file and this is what it says: " not support adapter?"

    You can't open neither the .nds nor the .ipk through moonshell.

    No, it wasn't supposed to make the thumbnails. Not sure if or how you can do that in moonshell. This is essentially just an image viewing program that allows you to view images by browsing through the thumbnails or creating a slideshow.

    It's essentially re-encoding all the images and putting them in a package that the ImageViewer can read. This allows it to display the images a lot faster because it doesn't need to read images one by one from the SD card.

    You can't in the R4 itself. You either need to view them in moonshell or an image viewing program like the ImageViewer just discussed, or ComicBookDS.

    Moonshell and ImageViewer are two totally different things. They do not interact or share files.

    If you're trying to open the Image Viewer .nds file and it says "not supported adapter" you might be using the unpatched version of Image Viewer. Make sure you are using the Image Viewer .nds file that has already been patched for the R4. If you don't know how to patch it, you can get the pre-patched version from www.r4ds.net. Once you have the patched .nds version, just run it from the games menu, and it will pick up the ipk file and show you the thumbnails.
