    I ordered an R4 and am setting up a folder with all my shit for when it comes. I'm kinda confused on what it should look like though, can you guys post screenshots/guides of your microSD directory for your R4? Hopefully this can help me and a bunch of other people figure out how to keep their R4 neat (I'm a neat freak).

    Make a folder with your Moonshell then inside that have folders called Pictures, Music and Videos.

    Then just store your games in the root, and specific platform games in other folders like "NES". Mines very clean and looks gooood.

    Ohh shit!

    2240x1024.

    Change the title, looks like it means you want a picture of a microSD card it self, and not the directory.

    Err, how do I go about editing the title? I can't find any button for it.

    edit: oh wait now that I'm signed in... =)
    edit again: seems that the topic can't be changed

    ...

    Why not link to the images, instead of posting it in within the thread and stretching it out, lol

    Also helps those with dial-up (not I, but others)...

    I dunno, just a thought.

    Just a tip, if you hold alt when pressing print screen, it will only capture the current window, so if you do that while you have your microSD window active, it will only copy that window and not the entire screen. [​IMG]

    hmm, on the R4DS site and a tutorial i read it said you had to have your DS roms in the Root folder. It might work

    EDIT:: Your's will work, I just read that you can have all your DS roms in a folder.

    Haruhi for ever!

    Can you actually read the subs on the DS screen though? (I have been wondering about this. Do they come out smaller than say, the text in FFIII?)


    woo Haruhi!

    i'm not sure if you already got your question answered but yea you can make a folder for everything and just leave it at the root of the SDcard thats what i do at least.

    and on the dpg files i don't like laggy videos so i always convert them to 24fps which plays smoothly like it should but the problem is the quality drops alot and subs are really illegible O_O maybe its just my eyes [​IMG]

    Quick question I have as I am still waiting for my R4 to show up as well. I have a 1GB card, how full can I fill this? Are NDS games like GBA games where they will end up like 4 times the actual size of the cart (thinking F2A when I had that) or can I actually fill the 1 gig card with NDS games and max it out?

    don't max it out as you need room for save files. and im not sure i dont think their alot bigger cause i use a 1GB microsd and i fit like 17games untrimed. theyre all around 40MB files i think?

    How do they end up getting 4x the size on the card? [​IMG]
    You're probably confusing Mbit with MByte as some people likes to do.

    256Mbit = 32MByte
    512Mbit = 64MByte
    1024Mbit = 128MByte

    and so on.
    a 1GB card would be ~8192Mbit = 1024MByte

    So lets say a game is 512Mbit big, in realsize when using a program like 'Explorer' to drag them over. You will normally get the sizes in MB. Meaning that the game which is 512Mbit big is 64MByte big etc.
