    Basically I much prefer playing GBA, DS, and GB games in pixel perfect mode, where they are displayed in their regular resolution and size and not bloated to fit the screen. But this requires holding the start button during startup between 5-15 seconds. Any method I can enable to make my 3DS CFW boot these games in that mode without me always holding the button ?

    For GBA and DS you can use TWPatcher, but no idea about GB/GBC games. I guess you could check New Super Ultimate Injector and see if you could make it work from there.

    Thanks for the response. Do you know how I apply TWPatcher to change that setting? For GB games I don’t mind doing it manually because they boot up within 2 seconds but DS and GBA games take like 10-20 secs

    Download latest version from here (https://gbatemp.net/threads/twpatcher-ds-i-mode-screen-filters-and-patches.542694/), where it says "Download stable (cia)", and install the CIA.

    To patch DS games, open the app, hold Y+B to access the patch menu, press A to enable "Invert START+SELECT function", press B, and hold Start. Let it patch, and after it's done it should tell you to press a button to close.

    To patch GBA games follow the same steps, but hold Y before opening the app and keep it pressed until it's open. Let it patch, and now both DS and GBA games will boot in 1:1 pixel perfect mode.

    Thanks. Strangely, I did the patcher and it installed yet still boots the DS games into full screen mode. Hmm

    Hold select while booting the 3DS, and enable "Enable loading external FIRMs and modules". After enabling that it should work.

    Thanks got it working! Either that was the issue or me not rebooting was the issue or both. This is such a nice quality of life for me haha even my r4 card will boot by default. I wish it did it for the virtual console games but oh well
