    Is this possible? Has anyone looked into it?

    Mario 64 with 800px turned on looks absolutely awesome and it got me wondering why this mode hasn't been used on other titles?

    i think that if it were possible, it would have a huge impact on performance, especially on old 3ds, new 3ds would probably be able to handle it with less of a performance impact, but i dont know if it would even be possible without the title's source code

    And using 800px mode in emulators? Wouldn't that make things nicer-looking?

    DaedalusX64 would greatly benefit from that, as well as other emulators.

    Nintendo likely used it as a debugging feature to test the 3D screen mode without an actual 3D screen, and as a result, you could see both the left and right sides at once on the top screen.
