    well now that we have the ability to edit and make .CIA's for 3ds i was wondering if we can force mod the aspect ratio on the Virtual Classics. i would love to have stretched fullscreen on 3ds VC games seeing how nintendo dosent allow you to do that can we?

    No we cant :(

    the only screen tweaking I know about is the GBA native resolution one. (Press start + select when booting a gba rom)

    it depends, on GB/GBC/NES...yeah you can, on GBA, nope

    in regards to GB/C and NES its just a matter of editing the config.ini file located in the romfs to use the full screen resolution

    Pretty sure you only need to hold select on boot.

    I thought the gba games look spot on with the XL with regards aspect ratio.

    I don't like the way a stretched out fullscreen of a GBA game. It looks very weird since it's not in its original native aspect ratio. :/

    everyone has their taste and tolerance i just HATE black borders! i brought a N3ds xl (and previously a o3ds XL) for the bigger screen for a reason, not to play a scaled game. if you have a non XL 3ds HA! you might as well play the game boy micro!

    for now im not really doing any VC until us gateway users get EMUnand Patched AGB_FIRM support. but when we do i want to play FULLSCREEN gba games and other VC fullscreen games.
    the very least i can take is at least 16:9 stretched with small black borders but the 4:3 square drives me crazy!

    Then you might as well just wait for CitrAGB to become available in .cia format for fullscreen support for GBA roms. :P

    CitrAGB development is not moving -__- for all i know the dev is MIA.
    i bet further modding of the AGB_FIRM WILL allow fullscreen.
    :toot:(promoted to GBA temp FAN!)

    the last thing i heard was some CIA support but that never came...
    but without some old devs from gpsp gba may prove to be very hard to emulate on 3ds alone
