does luma over clock even do anything?

    I'm playing 7th Dragon III Code: VFD with the clock option enabled in Luma and there are still instances when frame rate drops quite a bit.

    The question shouldn't even exist, overclock is N3DS only.

    It depends of the game, you can gain substantial amount of fps in some games, crash in other, or nothing at all.

    I've noticed that lume overclock doesn't really do anything, but if I use NTR overclok (I've only try this un SUMO) they work lots better. Maybe it's just me and there is not real diference, but it seems to me.

    I've noticed the same thing. It might just be placebo but I also wonder if NTR is overriding Luma's setting.

    I too run into many games that have framerate drops on n3ds even with clockspeed and L2 enabled.
    the one where i noticed the most was probably dragon quest 7.

    What's odd is rayman 3D gives me 60fps with luma and ntr, doesnt matter which one i use. I like to ise rayman 3D to test with since it has extremely inconsistent fps and it's noticeable almost immediately.
