With both libctru and citro2d adding a feature that enables a mode which doubles the screen's horizontal resolution, I've decided to update an image gallery app, which was sitting since 2017, to make use of it!
Originally, the app was made to test displaying an 800px wide image using the 3D feature, with interlaced fields for both the left and right eyes.
Now with the real 800px mode usable, the images look much better than in interlaced form!

I bring you... the Hori-HD Image Gallery!

What is Hori-HD?
It's a variation of HD, where only the horizontal resolution is high-def.
It's also the name I came up with for the 800px wide mode (with Hori being short for Horizontal).

Images from 5 games, totaling up to 49 images, can be viewed in Hori-HD!
For O2DS consoles, Hori-HD will not work (due to their screens not having 800px mode), so the images will be viewed in the regular width resolution of 400px.

Yep, amazing quality. Would be good for New 3DS users switch between 800 and 400 for see defference
It would be nice, if possible, to add a toggle to switch between 800px and the default, to really see the difference
You can press HOME, and then:
  1. Go to game notes and touch one of the notes to see the image in 400px. Or...
  2. Immediately hold L+DOWN+SELECT (or whatever combo is set) to go to Rosalina menu.

I read the title of the thread and thought when did Hori Switch from making controllers to making homebrew.

Would be amazing if we can get this tech into retroarch or other emulators. Especially if you want to do actual aspect ratio instead of 1:1 without excessive blur.

Looks really great, tried on both XL and normal sized models. the difference comes quite noticeable in the XL models as the screen is bigger, so the image details are more clearer, while in the "normal" models it looks sharper. I see that it could benefit antialiasing and image filtering a lot, it would be interesting to have it implemented on emulators.

Truly impressive! didn't think 3DS was capable of this. Can't wait to see this implemented on emulators (if possible). Is it?
It should definitely be possible to implement 800px mode into emulators, especially DaedalusX64, and the upcoming Dreamcast emulator (from Rinnegatamante).

awesome, although my o3DS would probably struggle with it, it runs Daedalusx64 kinda slow as it is. Or this 800px magic doesn't need much processing power to happen?
Also i just've read about the dreamcast emulator, again i don't think it'll work well on o3ds but it's till a marvel to get one in the first place. This forum is great

I don't think it would need much processing power, as it'll still just render one frame, instead of two frames for 3D mode.
