    Every time I open a picture (.bmp, .png, .jpg) in moonshell 2.05, it freezes without opening.

    How do I fix this?

    By the way, the pictures work fine in moonshell 1.71.

    Can you open any other files with Moonshell? Text, mp3 etc?

    Text files, mp3s, and dpgs all work perfectly fine.

    This is the third time I've reinstalled moonshell.

    Is this right?
    1. Download "moonshell205stable.exe" from http://home.att.ne.jp/blue/moonlight/
    2. After extracting, save the "moonshell205stable" folder in the root of the SD card.
    3. Take the "moonshl2" folder and "moonshl2.nds" out of that folder and put them on the root.

    However, every time I run moonshell, it gives me an error (something about DLDI, which I know nothing about), then goes to the program and works fine.

    Am I doing something wrong? What's DLDI?

    You need to make a back up of your card and format with panasonic formatter.

    dldi is making it flashcard-ready, but you probably don't need it though. What flashcard are you using?

    I'm using an EZ Flash V+, running kernel 2.0 RC4.

    Couple of things Zowayix:

    - skip step 2, the only files your card needs is the moonshl2 folder and moonshl2.nds
    - everyone get the DLDI error, it's a Moonshell2 known issue.

    You could stick to 2.04. There are only a few minor changes that doesn't really matter

    What's panasonic formatter?

    Backing up my card simply means copying all the files to my hard drive, right?

    correct, backup means copying it to hard drive
    download panosonic SD card formatter here: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=6603
    format then copy everything back to SD card

    Ok, I just tried using panasonic formatter, and it still doesn't work: I can't view images.

    What images were you hoping to view [​IMG]?? Nah joking, I guess you should just use 2.04 until 2.06 comes out I'm guessing.

    I just tried 2.04, and it still doesn't work.

    And I've tried .jpg, .gif, .bmp, and .png.

    When I try .jpg, Moonshell freezes upon opening the folder.
    All other formats freeze upon opening the picture.

    It may be that "DLDI Error", I'd look into it.

    I know almost nothing about DLDI, just that it's a sort of universal patch for homebrew so all flashcarts can use it.

    And why would it only affect pictures? And how come pictures still work on moonshell 1.71? (but not 2.04 or 2.05)

    I have another thought. I have a DSI with Acekard 2i, and i know at first i was running the official firmware on my card and i had all sorts of problems with Moonshell 2.00 or above, but when I switched to the unofficial AKAIO firmware, i haven't had a problem with any of Moonshell 2.00 or later and i'm using Moonshell 2.05 right now with no problems.

    So maybe what i'm suggesting is maybe an older firmware for your card or different firmware may may things work more smoothly, i'm unfamiliar with your card, but check it out.

    Everything in moonshell works well with EZV's kernel 1.90 b11, but I want to use kernel 2.00 RC4 since it loads much faster.
