    Hello everyone

    I have started a new series of posts on my personal blog talking about my experience developing for the 3DS using the ctrulib. After spending a few months doing some stuff now I'd like to share my experience with you

    I'll be updating this post as I create new content.

    3DS Homebrew Tips and Tricks (I)
    - 3dsx, Cia and 3ds
    - Setting up a good Developement environment

    3DS Homebrew Tips and Tricks (II)
    - Application Icon, banner and RSF
    - Pica Texture Format
    - Sideways framebuffer

    3DS Homebrew Tips and Tricks (III)
    - Adding sound permissions to 3ds files
    - Avoid GPU_TRIANGLE_FAN
    - Using RomFS
    - Painting steps: clean, render, transfer and swap
    - Improving the 3D stereoscopic effect


    Any feedback is welcome :)

    Have you tried citra yet? It's not totally accurate, but incredibly useful for minute changes.

    I tried Citra. It doesn't run any of the things I have tried, not even the GPU sample :(

    I always wanted to get rid of the devkitpro version of ctrulib. Your article finally made me do it...
    but uninstalling devkitpro also uninstalled mingw and now i cant get make back, since sourceforge is having problems XD

    Well this came in handy. :)
    Was wondering how to setup VS for make and whatnot. Thanks for the tips 'n tricks. :)
    I even managed to setup custom buttons on the toolbar for make and make clean. :)
