    So yeah, I've seen "What are the benefits of the N3DS clock speed?" show up a few times.. Someone should make a wiki or some documentation or something on what games benefit, and what happens with the N3DS clock speed settings with Luma3DS and HANS (If there isn't one already.).
    For example of the format:

    Sorry for the underscores.. The forum would remove all the spacing I had put and would completely break the format.

    If there is a wiki page or something like this please kindly link it, and I'll be off with this idea. and it has to be regularly updated, (obviously, what would be the point of keeping track of this if it's only updated once in a blue moon?)

    i forgot NTR had that, but this is for overall all three afaik that's an NTR wiki... and aren't there differences between the HANS clock boost and the way Luma does it?

    because i have no idea how to make wikis? i would if i had the slightest knowledge of this kind of formatting....


    this is miles easier than everyone telling me to make my own 3ds homebrew

    EDIT: besides, making an entire wiki dedicated to this one thing would be a bit overkill

    EDIT2: and i don't have the time, not the SD space to test every single game on the 3ds library, so i would need help in the first place

    Instead of a list of games which feature improvements, what about a list of games with known issues/problems when used with the increased clock speed+L2 cache?

    Then perhaps we could have a .cfg file stored on the SD card which could be read by CFW before a game launches, and if the gameID matches one in the 'problem games' list the CFW could lower the clock speed/cache to match O3DS settings?

    That's a good idea, but that's also kind of what i also meant when i said
    Which could be counted as benefits/bugs that could be seen and encountered

    So far, out of all the games I've played with the clock + l2 that seems a bit bugged is Harvest Moon: A New Beginning run at a constant sub 15fps.. not sure if that's normal or the clock messing things up. I would have to see if any difference occurs when I turn it off

    Funny you should mention Sonic All-Stars Racing, as that's one of the few games I've noticed that crashes with clock + l2 settings on.
    I'm not sure about in single player, but in online multiplayer both a friend and myself experienced complete system crashes every few minutes that weren't happening with the setting not enabled.

    That and the black lower screen with the system has stopped responding and requires a restart or whatever.

    when I got that the system just hung for like, 10 minutes until I force shut it down

    I should figure out where i should put this wiki page, because it's starting to seem quite useful

    I find that all games run better in 3D from the CPU and Cache bump.

    You don't need a wiki, all games benefit, just leave it on all times. Turn it off for the few games that give you issues.

    but we could use a list that shows what games it causes issues, so people know ahead of time without spamming the forums with "game iz nut wrkung" and the simple answer would be that they have clock + l2 enabled
