    GhostBuster
    NEW NDS Homebrew

    Some users have complained that the DSi XL suffers from a "ghosting" effect after pausing for a length of time or after running certain emulators. Speculation is that the problem may be related to custom refresh rates coded into various emulation software. Spinal has released GhostBuster, an application that will cycle through different brightness levels on a per-pixel basis. The idea is that this application will help to fix any possible "ghosting" of the DSi XL's screen.

    Sorta, not permanent though. The PSP had a problem with it:

    The outlines of the characters, that's referred to as ghosting.

    PSP 3000 pretty much fixed it. As you can see, it's hard to tell if there's ghosting. It also depends on the game too. I've played many psp games, and haven't experienced any ghosting. Except for Grand Theft Auto Stories, those have horrible ghosting.

    But yeah, that's what ghosting is. And as the article says, some users who used Homebrew on XL, experienced it.

    I found that reference funny, like a private joke where not a lot of people might understand it [​IMG]
    Whenever I see black&white dots, it makes me remember that movie!
    (I hope that's the correct reference).
    Sorry, it wasn't on topic.

    Actually, I thought DSiXL suffered from Screen Burning? I do remember reading something like that.

    there were a few posts saying nesds caused it, when actually it appears the dsi screens have a "ghosting" which acts like a burn-in, as in it stays after you power off. its not a burn-in as it fades over time, and it appears this app will help it fade much quicker. i personally have been using nesds since i got my xl and i've never had this issue, i think it only happens if you pause for 30+ minutes.
