    Hello,
    I download the moonshell source code, but I can't seem to compile it.
    When I run "make_bin.bat", I get the following error:
    Code:

    I have installed devkitpro from the automated installer.
    So what can I do to compile moonshell?
    Thanks!

    Seems like the DLDI Patch doesn't work. But you should be able to find a binary if it's in the process of DLDI patching.

    Well I know how to get the ".nds" file for moonshell, but I can't compile it from the source code.

    Are you sure that you didn't compile it successfully? The error looks like a last-step one. (it doesn't even really sound like compiling moonshell).

    Yeah, I'm sure.
    I don't even know how to compile it as there aren't really any instructions...

    Normally you would need devkitpro installed and then you would have to find the folder with the makefile, go to it with the cmd and type "make".

    From the looks of it, there's a lot of makefiles:

    It might be that you have to write your own then.
