Hi guys, Newby here, I've tried looking up FAQ's but the link no longer seems to work.
My problem is that I seem to have some issues trying to get DSLibris to work on my M3DSReal card.
For several years now I've used the M3/DSLite as a palm reader. A friend has used both "M3system" & DSLibris on theirs & I fancied the better formatting DSLibris offered when compared to .txt files.
When I install DSLibris I continually get a "fatal: font not found" message. As a reader of text files I am impressed by the M3, it still works as per, although, try as I might, I cannot get the two to co-exist. My friend's DSLite/M3DSReal combination, with both systems on it is working just fine. The only difference being his was loaded via an "Apple", mine on a PC with Windows 7 loaded. I've even un-installed all my .txt files & loaded only DSLibris stuff,with a few .epub books loaded, still the same result "font not found". As a last resort I loaded some "true type" fonts from my computer just in case the fonts on the libris were corrupt, still no joy!
I realise this stuff is all to do with the DSLibris install/application, but as it is onto the M3DSReal card I was hoping some of your members may have encountered it before & can help me with a work-around.
Thanks for reading, hope you can assist me, regards Bill

are the font files in the right folder? (fat:\font\)
and does the content of fat:\dslibris.xml correspond with the location and name of one of the font files?(open the xml with wordpad)

Many thanks Picketf & The Dicemaster, I've just un-installed everything, re-formatted the Micro SDcard to FAT file system, loaded GBAlpha system file then loaded my .txt files onto the system. Then loaded DSLibris. FAT:\M3DSReal, opened the file & deleted the .txt & .XML files, checked the font folder, there are the 5 fonts listed there. Then I loaded 6 EPUB format ebooks into the book folder (these ebooks were converted from MOBI format to EPUB via Calibre, the tree now reads FAT:\M3DSReal\DSLibris\book\ then the 6 titles (.epub). The tree for the fonts reads FAT:\M3DSReal\ DSLibris\font\ that opens to the 5 .ttf fonts. Now when I boot the DSLite up, I initially get a screen asking for preferred language, click on english & the 5 boot option thumbnails appear (but the animation is very fast) A scroll across to "file" brings up a GMManager tab with a System & a DSLibris folder. The DSLibris folder opens to a (.), (..), DSLibris NDS, Book, & Font sub-folders. The NDS folder opens to a "Slot1" & "Slot 2" choice. The selection of slot 1 brings up a DLDI Compatible notification, followed by a screen with green script stating: $ dslibris, progr: file system mounted, warn: can't read prefs (255), info: writing new prefs. fatal: font not found (2). This is basically what has happened all along, I've tried downloading a new DSLibris app, un-installed & re-installed everything several times over all with the same result. If I allow the "System" to load to the 2nd selection screen then click on the "info" icon the Help & Support", scroll down to the up-date history I notice the latest update is Nov 2007, could this be the problem? Many thanks again guys, regards Bill

Hi Bill:

You have to put the book folder, the font folder, the xml file in the root of the card. Let say your computer assigns to your card the letter F:\ then you will have F:\book, F:\font, F:\dslibris.xml, the nds file I put it on the games folder I have in my card which is a M3DS Real Sakura to have the application available in the menu. Also I recommend that you delete the application and its associated files from your card and installing cleanly again.Hope this helps

    very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes so i think i made the right choice

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    there was also a sony with worse local dimming and the glow was really apparent

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is non linear anyway. 100 nits is about 50% of the peak output of a 10,000 nit display.

    "very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes" not in the games i play

    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    that's not important

    i can't tell the difference

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
