    As you can see on this picture above (source), if 3D is turned off, you can see something that resembles scanlines on the top screen (though those aren't scanlines; for a detailed explanation read the italic text here). Since this can be distracting, especially when you consider that while gaming you repeatedly switch between top screen and bottom screen, I wonder if the current hacking achievements allow to force enable 3D on 2D only areas and 2D only games.

    I guess there's most of the time a reason of 3D disabled, maybe performances, no?

    And anyway, I guess it depends on how games are made, if you can change peculiar stuff.

    Some games have enabled 3D mode, even on areas with no 3D.

    Actually, one of the reasons I avoid 3D mode is because of the poor image quality on the left, that to me resemble a double "scanline" (both horizontal and vertical).
    The vertical gap between pixels (aka "scanline") in 2D mode is bad enough, but the additional horizontal gap in 3D mode causes unbearable eye straining.

    That doesn't make sense. In 3D mode the top screen is identical to the bottom screen. If the bottom screen gives you eye strain, I suggest getting a Vita.

    Yes, the bottom screen also annoys me, but I don't look at it too often anyway.
    And even if I may get a Vita for playing Vita games (specially P4G) any day, that is completely unrelated.
    I can only play the 3DS games I want to play in my 3DS with its crappy screen, and buying a Vita is no solution to that.

    I don't think he was mentioning the bottom screen?

    I don't think you got the point?
