    Yeah is it not a sticky? In which case nobody gives a damn if you bumped it, seeing as how it is always bumped. Otherwise, nobody cares anyway, so.......

    DSVideo works like a charm

    Never mind Moonshell. I found DSVideo and it works like a charm.

    super encoding issue

    slightly off topic i suppose...

    SUPER encoder issue
    hey, ive seen this issue before somewhere googling around, but i cant seem to find it now. i have just downloaded the SUPER encoder and encoded'd about 10 episodes of mr. show, and a few brak shows (AT THE SAME TIME), and put it on my ds on an r4 III with 4gb sdhc (yah yah yah i'm going cyclods very soon so sue me). well, it will only play for a few seconds and then skips to the next video on my cart. it does this with every episode using SUPER, to which this issue never happened using the dpgtools software.

    settings:

    VIDEO: 24 FPS, 576KBPS BITRATE OPTIONS: HIGH QUALITY AND 48K CHECKED
    AUDIO: 192 KBPS

    ALL OTHER OPTIONS ARE AUTOMATICALLY CHECKED OR NO BRAINERS.

    any suggestions or solutions?

    ok, i've followed the thread and am able to convert to dpg from avi, great...

    but, i just realized that the ORIGINAL avi file needed to be played with VLC player instead of WMP to get both audio/video to work (in wmp all i get is audio, and thus on my ds all i get is aduio)

    so i downloaded GSpot, per above to see any codecs on my avi file, none detected..

    so i move onto SUPER, downloaded that, and will convert the original avi file into .mov file, with h.264/avc as output codec..now i assume once done, this will let me play the avi file on my WMP (both audiot & video), at which point i convert that new file to dpg??

    am i missing something, or is it possible to just stick VLC player onto my DS so it can play the original converted avi to dpg files? please help.. thanks much, appreciate it.

    The DS is nothing like a Windows/Linux computer, so you can't just stick VLC on it. The DS will have no clue what to do with a .exe file. You have to compile programs specifically for the DS, and so far nobody has made any applications that play more that one type of video file. The DS is too underpowered to playback files that aren't converted specifically for it anyway.

    NDSL R4 Revolution 3

    Hi

    I've followed the instructions in this post and I can't get it working. I'm using the card above.

    When I switch on I select games and scroll through all the games I've got to _BOOT_MP.NDS. I get version 1.1 and details in the bottom screen but the top half has //0 files
    IMFS/ ImplantFileSystem ver0.3
    EXFS/ ExtendedFileSystem ver0.3
    MPCF/ GMAMP/AdMovie/M3 CFI/0
    GBFS/ GBFS Flashcard

    There are mp3 and dpg files in the root directory?

    help!!!

    Mike

    It looks like you're using an extremely outdated version of Moonshell (I think they stopped supporting EXFS after 1.5). Get Moonshell. 1.7x and go from there. If you go to the SCDev forums and go to the FAQ/Tutorials section, the stickied Moonshell tutorial is very helpful.

    Of course, don't confuse this with the menu files needed to make your R4 boot in the first place.

    to install, yes of course, just download the latest version from the cyclo website, unpack it and copy the moonshl folder and the .nds file onto the root of your sdhc card.

    I have an M3 movie player. I put my sd card into the player, and the player into my NDS. If i format my sd card with moonshell...How can do I add actual nds games .nds from my pc to my sd card? If i just drag and drop it doesn't work correctly? Is there is a tool for this?

    Moonshell is just a DS program just like any other DS homebrew application. It won't help you "format" your SD card or anything like that. I assume you're referring to the slot-2 M3 Perfect or M3 Pro, right? You must have a slot-1 NoPass device in order to boot that into DS mode before you can do anything with DS homebrew, otherwise you're stuck to GBA stuff.

    There is none. It's not physically possible to boot your M3 in DS mode without some sort of additional hardware, namely a slot-1 NoPass device like a PassCard 3 or Superkey or something like that.
