In last NEO Compo this project have won in the top 10 : NO
Project description: A nice looking homebrew loader, a good replacement for menus on cards like the GnM.

* Usage - just extract DSision.nds and menu_skin folder to the root of your card.

Any comments (good or bad) to spinal_cord@yahoo.com

* update - Fixed - was reading the ini file in the wrong place, to the colours on the top screen were not working correctly.

Current features -

Will boot almost any homebrew game or app on most cards
Cool dock style icon based menu

      Tap the center icon to load it

   Quick launch shortcuts at top of screen (Use stylus to tap icons)
   Autorun any .nds file anywhere on your card (see menu_config.ini for details)
   Skin support
      menu_skin/
      top.bmp - top screen background
      bottom.bmp - touch screen background
      gbaframe.bmp - border for gba screen
      1.gif - icon for parent folder
      2.gif - icon for folder
      3.gif - icon for nds file

German comment? if its in the gif loader, I think It's from an example in palib. You will also notice a lot of unused code, should have been deleted, but I like to check my notes once in a while, sometimes I think the old way might have been better.

Thanks for the nice comment.

* Usage - just extract DSidion.nds and menu_skin folder to the root of your card.

I am having a hell of a lot of problems with DSision, I've gotten it to work on my GBAMP and that's it. Its freezes on My M3 Simply w DLDI v2 by chishm, my GnM w DLDI v1 and v2. my MMD, and my SC miniSD. I have a feeling it is the clock.

It doesn't work on R$/M3S, don't know why, just doesn't work. I was told it works fine on GnM Though, what makes you think its the clock?

I can't think what the problem might be i'm afraid. I don't have a GnM to test with, but i have been told it works fine on it. There whouldn't really be a problem though, just extract the zip to the root of your card (including the menu_skin folder). That's all i can suggest i'm afraid.

The root is the bottom e.g.  c:\ is the root of your hard drive (in windows) so when you plug your card into your pc, if its drive letter is e, you should have


e:\dsision.nds

and the folder with all the contents in,

e:\menu_skin\

The filenames are checked in the .ini file, each one can be changed, you just need to edit the file and change the graphic (if you want) so yes, you can easily set up moonshell.
