    on the contrary, i love pixels, ive always hated bilinear filtering, thats why im using retroarch for gb gba snes emus on the 3ds.

    I CAN see what you mean about it having uneven pixels though like the image looking stretched wrongly in different areas.

    is this impossible? maybe you can hack the TWL_Firm and just delete the filter

    please excuse my naiveness to the scene,

    EDIT (instead of making a new post) Thanks but i want the resolution the same without bilinear filtering, i wouldnt go so far to ask for the small screen pixel perfect mode.

    You can either hold SELECT or START after launching a game.
    BTW, hacking TWL_FIRM is hard.

    @umbjolt @Robz8 @GerbilSoft

    Displaying the version of the unofficial bootstrap in the settings screen is broken somehow.
    Things i noticed about the updater code:
    https://github.com/Robz8/TWLoader/blob/master/gui/source/download.cpp#L545
    this line starts with FILE*
    that is for official bootstrap.
    Further one the code is duplicated but this time there is no FILE*
    https://github.com/Robz8/TWLoader/blob/master/gui/source/download.cpp#L596

    The reason i think the problem lies here is because the files are there, but the result is always -1, so that gives me the impression it is failing to read the version file.

    Again, as I say yesterday, it's working fine in my side so that's weird. Also, variable is declared so that's why on L596 there is no FILE*

    Sorry but I closed it. If you declare twice the same variable, it won't compile at all

    Also, TWloader read correctly the file. There is a problem about here
    If you enable LOG you'll see I'm right and checkBoostrapVersion() is reading the file :)

    I believe there's no disassembled source code.
    I dunno.

    I have the exact same problem as you with my Acekard 2i. Tried to reinstall, format SD card, tried release and unofficial bootstrap, I always get a white screen when trying to load the card, or when trying to "add games".

    Try re-extracting the flashcard pack.

    I've done this multiple times. Tried two different SD card.
    I think there are multiple hardware revision of Acekard 2i.

    I've tried again with the most recent release pack on github, followed the installation guide, reinstalled the TWL official titles, and I still have the same problem : white screen.
    I also have a crash when leaving the settings menu ("An exception has occured : data abort"). Is there a way to add log output to help tracing the bug ?

    Create a file called "log" in "sdmc:/_nds/twloader/". TWLoader will create "log.ini" if the "log" file exists.

    It's not an emulator. Via nds-bootstrap, it runs DS roms on SD Card natively.
