    SuperCard DS(ONE) OS Update v0220

    Out now...








    The Supercard team have today released an update for the Supercard DS(ONE). There's no change list for this version, but it seems to hide the SCSHELL folder and enable patch mode by default. Let us know what else you find new!

    They've also updated the ROM DAT used for detecting save types. This DAT includes information on all games up to #0818.

    Gambia, The
    I might update, but seems like there's nothing special in that version.

    I'll take ANY updates! I can't wait until they fix that damn Moonshell error on boot up!

    So the patcher software is pretty much useless now given that it has on the fly patching functionality?

    Would we want that patcher on or off?

    What is the benefit of having that on?

    rkenshin, if you already have files patched using the SuperMode software, turn the MoonShell patcher to OFF or your programs will not work.

    ...or you could just copy clean roms over and use the built-in MoonShell patcher.... but then you wouldnt get the "Trim" option.

    So there is benifit to each... either able to Trim your roms with SuperMode or simply use the MoonShell patcher for clean roms. I think this is pretty nifty, dont you?

    If you use the built-in MoonShell patcher on clean roms it slows down some of the games, like Osu Tatakae Ouendan [​IMG] . Its still better to patch the games with the SuperMode software.

    This is very true. :'(

    When I used the Windows software to patch, Castlevania: POR never crashed.

    Now using the built-in patcher it crashes (freezes) all the time!

    The new Supercard DS one shipment will add the new Moonshell release with some improvements. I've received an email telling me, that they SC team had some problems with the delayed release of Moonshell 1.6, now fixed. So, the next supercard will have the Moonshell 1.6 native and I suppose this new firmware

    peepoop, is this with resetting your speed back to 4x ? Your previous card settings were reset when the Moonshell software on your MicroSD was updated. I have messed with PoR over the past half hour and haven't had a problem with it yet (Kingston).

    Yeah, I set the speed back to 28 (as fast as my SanDisk Ultra II will go) first thing.

    so it will be built on to the DS Cart? When I received the SuperCard DS, I had to download the MoonShell software from the internet to a MicroSD card before the SuperCard DS would even work. If what you are saying is true, then there is no need to download any software if it will all be built into the SuperCard DS. Good stuff!

    I have a SanDisk 2GB microSD (non Ultra) & I'd like to know how to find the max speed on it. Any help is appreciated! [​IMG]

    No that's not what I meant. I can't explain me good in english. The internal firmware had troubles to update to the new Moonshell. All we know that error message in the boot up. So the next Supercard DS will have a update firmware with improvements, i guess.

    First of all, ignore the "Auto Set SD Speed" in the "Other" menu. It is rarely accurate or correct.

    Go to the Option menu, pick "SD Speed", then pick "Other" at the bottom of the list. Set it to 20. Launch, say, Castlevania: POR.

    If it launches you're good. Set the speed to one higher and try again.

    If you get two black screens, then that's too fast for your card.

    Aaaaactually 28 was my max speed with the December firmware. It appears with this new one my card can now handle 32 (the maximum!)

    Maybe that'll fix my problem. I'll play around with it some more and see if I still get crashes.

    looks like we need to do a lot of experimenting with the patching.

    Save in SD = save to battery first, then save to file after restart
    Save in DS = save directly to microSD

    Has anyone used the new fast read vs normal read setting? Games won't load in fast read mode for me (slow microsd card).

    Also, the on the fly patching means that there's an extra 3 seconds in the initial loading of the games for me.

    I think you have that backwards.

    False alarm. It still freezes - even at 32 speed! [​IMG]
