Hello there, this is the first time I really use this site so excuse me if it's written in a weird and unstructured manner or something...
I was feeling bored so I decided to play some games on my old 3DS and as a big Level-5 fan I played some of their games, including Yo-Kai Watch, including some of the untranslated games.
I thought that maybe I could try translating one of those japan-only games, because...well why not. But looking online how that works made me realize that Level-5 games are apparently a little difficult to work with.
But I still managed to do it, somehow. With "3DS Rom Tools" I managed to get the romfs (and exefs/exheader). So I edited some things (the yw_a.fa file), felt rather proud and decided to test it.
And then the issues started appearing...:unsure:
I tried multiple things but I don't seem to be able to rebuild a working .3ds file.

1. Try I downloaded the RomFS Builder and tried building the romfs into one file. Then I used the HackingToolkit V9 to extract the other files from the .3ds file like the Header, banner and such. I noticed that the file from the RomFS Builder wasnt a .bin file it was...just a file. Slightly confused I made it into a .bin file, put the file with the other files I extracted from the 3ds file and used the HackingToolkit to rebuild them all into one new .3ds file. I started Citra and...loading it crashes Citra.
2. Try I used the 3DSBuilder that was in the ExtraTools folder. Selected the RomFS folder, the ExeFS folder and the ExHeader. I didnt know the Serial Number, so I just put whatever in... And well, to nobodies surprise the file that got made didn't work either.

So here I am, a little hopeless. I'm pretty sure I did something wrong, because I tried extracting the romfs and such and instantly rebuilding, just with the original files, and that didn't work either.
I never did something like this so...I hope someone here can help me! :wacko::(

What game are you working on? I'm asking because the game could be already being worked on by people here.

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes so i think i made the right choice

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    there was also a sony with worse local dimming and the glow was really apparent

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is non linear anyway. 100 nits is about 50% of the peak output of a 10,000 nit display.

    "very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes" not in the games i play

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    that's not important

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    i can't tell the difference

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.

    Not exactly 3D but the colors does pops out more
