Owner of shameful FireLink Card. Yeah I know, save me some jokes please! Anyway, after trying my fiance's R4DS and got so jealous of it

- so I decided into buying it!

Right, here's some questions:-

1. Can you view photos in your R4DS? If yeah, how do you do that?

2. Moonshell unable to load - I know there's threads about this - but when I used search I just got messages saying not found! Would be awesome if you point me to one. Moonshell stopped loading halfway then error message came up.

3. Can you view movies on it? Does they come with subtitles? My fiance - hard of hearing. Can you covert DVD into DPG? Yes, I did a bit of homework before posting this!

4. How do you make a theme stay on R4 when it starts up? It keep going back to original (the one it came in with.) when I switch off the DS. And suffered some earaches from him!

Thank you!

1-You can use either Moonshell or DSOrganize to view pictures.
2-Never heard of this problem, but maybe reinstalling the kernel or manually installing moonshell will help.
3-Yes, you can view movies in the .dpg format, use DPGTools (comes with moonshell) or batchdpg to convert. BatchDPG lets you do subtitles.
4-You press select when on the main menu, it should stay. Mine always stay, so if it doesn't i don't know what the problem is.

For the moonshell problem, try turning off the soft reset in the games menu. Mine also didn't load and then I switched soft reset off and it worked from the middle icon. Or you may have to load moonshell manually from the games menu.

I've since fixed this problem - I didn't copied the moonshell folder right. It was missing some files.

Thanks for your help - much grateful for it

You know....I hear a lot of people say this, but I never have this problem. I have soft-reset on and Moonshell boots just fine.

Moonshell tends to break sometimes when you use root based Homebrew. For example: I installed QuakeDS on v1.13 and tried to read an FAQ I put on Moonshell, but it never loaded. So I tried reinstalling Moonshell. Still, no go there. My final option was to remove QuakeDS, and voila, it works again. Although I did end up reinstalling QuakeDS afterwards and it hasn't broken my Moonshell yet (although, other root based Homebrew seems to break my moonshell but all it requires in a reinstall of moonshell).

Good thing I don't use my R4 anymore eh?

My fiance is away on a trip at the moment but he haven't mentioned anything about it since - so it must be all fine now.

Still don't know about themes - I'll find out when he returns.

How come you don't use it anymore, Grimalkin?! I'm considering buying them. Saw one with 2GB for £30. $60 in your money. A bargain! Only tried them for few minutes and thought it was one awesome piece!

What I think is that the DSTT, M3R and Cyclo all basically have the same functions and features, just a few differences. Those are all good carts, IMO and any of them would be a good buy.

Hmm, does they have 100% game compability as R4DS do?

Just seen a website with DSTT and they come along with rumble pack. That would be awesome but I'm curious if they does work with most games?

Just seen reviews of DSTT - 99.99%. Hmm.

My FireLink just died on me. Only had it for 4 months. Fire Card really does sucks. It wouldn't start up at all now.

I'm still split between DSTT, M3, Cyclo and R4. I'd love a pack with Rumble and GBA pak.

Any ideas on how I can fix DS Linker? It wouldn't start up at all and only starts if I'm very lucky (after 20 ot 30th of switching on and off.)

Well, next goal would be 4,321 posts

If you want help on fixing your DS Linker try another forum. Like the NDS Flashing Software one.
