    Hi, I'm certain this is technically possible, but is it implemented?
    When I/we play emulators or any homebrew, especially when booting via menuhax, we avoid the 3ds's real system and so if it is too bright or dark, we have to go and exit the homebrew launcher, go back to the home menu, alter the brightness and then return to the homebrew launcher.
    Does smea's homebrew launcher support altering the brightness?

    If not, should I open an issue/feature request on the github project page? Since it seems like a good, 'simple enough to implement compared to other stuff' feature to me.

    thanks :)

    yes, but that is different :) but sure an effect like that would be cool.
    nintendo gave us that because we cannot access the home menu in ds games, just like homebrew.
    i don't expect every homebrew to support it, simply homebrew launcher would be enough :)
