    It's just a package of a Moonshell which can open various formats of media and games.

    But where is the TTMENU.DAT to start?

    And the game compatibility is based on the DSTT kernel or moonshell?

    There will be no "TTMENU.DAT" file as it's been converted to a NDS file most likely in order for the Moonshell to be run as Firmware.

    Moonshell has no support for commercial games so it's compatibility is 0.
    Since the Moonshell is using the DSTT firmware (most likely YSMenu), compatibility is based off the DSTT firmware.


    Do you even bother reading or searching to try to find the answer to these basic questions you have? or do you just make new threads for each one?

    bitonio6,

    Have you tried this? How did you get it working (if you did)?

    It's just Moonshell2.05 (old, 2.08 is the latest, 2.06 is the last that works with YSmenu loader) with YSMenu built for DSTT (Probably using 1.17a06 firmware, which is pretty old).

    Sorry, I'm a n00b. I currently run moonshl2.nds from my TTmenu (1.17a12), if I want moonshell.

    Sounds like this "Power Kit" has a bunch more stuff built in, but I'm just not sure how to use it. With no TTMENU.dat, how does the DSTT know WTF to boot?

    I think I made a mistake there...
    I'm not sure if DSTT can run Moonshell as a firmware or not (R4 can), but either way, you'd need the TTMENU.DAT (or _DS_MENU.DAT for R4 cards) to boot whatever firmware you want to run. For example, on R4's you can DLDI patch then encrypt Moonshell2 auto-loading .nds file and make it your _DS_MENU.DAT to load Moonshell 2.

    thats nice package you got...

    anyway back totopic..

    if you want to autoboot the moonshell ... go rename the moonshl2.nds to ttmenu.dat

    btw the moonshl2.nds has no DLDI patch access so probably been patch only for DSTTi to work on it ...

    Well, I tried it out. I wasn't surprised to find that it didn't work at all. Just a bunch of black and blue vertical lines on both screens and an animated icon (the typicall "square blocks - busy" icon) but it never did anything...

    Gotta love the amazing documentation that comes with it, eh? [​IMG]

    Seriously. None of this shit has any documentation, and then we all sound like fucking morons in the forums cause we don't know what the fuck to do.

    "Here's a bunch of folders. You figure it out".

    Thanks! (I think).

    actually, the moonshell can boot nds files

    "All softwares contained in this package are property of their respective original authors, listed below, who have granted NDSTTi.cn permission to distribute their works."
    -WRONG

    that yasu fellow doesnt want anyone to distribute ysmenu except his japanese site, and ndstt.cn made a package that runs moonshell as the firmware using ysmenu

    i made one too, and people post that "ohmigod! you cant distribute ysmenu!"

    mine works and is 1.17a12, see the link in my signature to go to that one
    but it loads nds files, i dont know about the other old console roms

    see the page in my sig to get a working package

    GBAtemp has no control over what DSTT posts on their website.
    You on the other hand are linking to a file that you uploaded.
