I dropped my New 3DS XL from table height and the top screen LCD cracked.
I replaced it and the replacement works fine, but it's not calibrated right so it looks a bit patchy and blurry.

The old DS Lite systems had physical potentiometers that could fix something like this, but the 3DS models store the voltage values in memory.

I found that you can use developer tools to adjust these values and that I'd be able to use the config to edit the FLICKER TOP value and fix what I'm seeing if I had access to the tool but it's only available as a .CIA from what I can tell and I'm on firmware 11.6.0-39U and so I can't easily put CFW on my machine.

Does anyone know of an app that can be launched from the Homebrew Launcher to calibrate the displays?

  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    also gonna install twilight menu in my r4 flashcard
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    One thing that just occurred to me.... The sound on the 2600 sucked less back then the harsh sound we hear now is from infinitely better speakers we have now, back when the 2600 was new speakers produced a almost muffled sound, like CRTs made old graphics look slightly better.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I wonder if I could recommend that to some emulation devs that perhaps the sound could use some smoothing out to simulate those old TVs
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I think a few of the early systems could benefit from that, at least up to the 8 bit generation, by the 16 bit generation I think TVs had gotten a lot better in almost every way

    Try Wood firmware
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    For your R4
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    It's old but it's the best firmware out for DS stuff
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    it says it only works for the original R4, R4i Gold (r4ids.cn), R4iDSN (r4idsn.com) and Acekard R.P.G.
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    nvm it does support mine
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:

  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:

    good night
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Just give it a try, but honestly if you have a 3DS you can play DS games without a card just off the internal SD card
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Slightly slower loading but a bit more convenient
