    Guys, could you explain one thing? I cant see any improvements to visuals when i overclock. Dragons Dogma for instance. I play handheld and image lacks antialiasing and resolution is lower than in docked. I can tell because i made 2 screenshots both in handheld and in docked and can see difference.
    So what i thought is that with freebird i can overclock to docked frequencies and resolution in-game would be higher but when I do so, resolution remains the same. Framerate might be higher, but visuals remain the same. Is there a way to play in higher resolution while handheld?

    Why would you expect it to run in 1920x1080 handheld when the display's resolution is smaller? Overclocking would help to bump up the resolution in games that support dynamic resolution like DOOM, Wolfenstein, etc. Theoretically, you can run most games in 1920x1080 handheld but it needs to be done on a per game basis by either editing game configs or developing a sysmodule.
    Frame rate being higher is the desired effect here.

    I see, thank you for an explanation. Is there a place maybe, where people share configs for games with graphical improvements?

    Your are at that place, probably. I remember seeing something at Switch - ROM Hacking, Saves, Translations & Tools. Xenoblade 2 was there for sure, try searching.

    I haven't tested it (btw I use sys-clk), but it shouldn't be. 8.1.0 didn't change anything that should affect this

    Re-checked and atmos get stuck in Switch logo after reboot to payload when the freebird folder module is in titles

    Edit: Not sure about sys-clk, I would try it when I get home, but so far 3 system modules don't allow atmosphere boot normally.

    Mem, gpu and cpu clock stays at 0mhz when I open freebird, I'm on latests atmosphere and I have followed the installation steps correctly. Btw, the program looks great.

    sys-clk works just perfectly on Atm 0.9.1 / firmware 8.1

    freebird gives 0Hz to all the applied values.

    Same. I hope it's not abandoned, because IMO a simple global GUI >>>>>>>>>>>>>> per title ini files. Sys-clk is a PITA to use.

    Also sys-clck has capped gpu clock when undock, I use 500mhz gpu preset on freebird and works fine.

    For some reason sys-clk doesn’t work for me in GZDoom, a CPU OC is needed in order to run Doom 64 Retribution smoothly, freebird set a higher clock and the difference is noticeable, I tried CPU/GPU OC GZDoom through title override but no there’s no effect

    Hey guys. Sorry, I've been working A LOT lately. I only found out the Switch was updated because of a friend. I'll try to take a look over the weekend.

    That's because anything above 460mhz is dangerous in handheld.

    still people should have freedom to decide, or thats what i think at least

    i understand a warning message before picking higher clocks up, but completly block them... dunno

    Then remove that limit from the source... you probably shouldn't be using said clocks if you can't do that
