    Yes I know hans exist but it doesn't seem to wanna work with download titles from eshop. Yes i know NTR exist but i don't wanna have to reboot my system every time i wanna play a different game cause it only works after booting one game.

    I'm talking about a regular common works with everything, no flaws screen shot tool. Another request is if there is a way to maybe i dunno somehow increase resolution of screen shots. I know the system itself doesn't got resolutions like 640x480 or anything like that. I also dunno how screen shots are programmed to work. But i just figure somehow if possible to maybe just get a slight bigger improved image than that 240P image. (Whatever the resolution of the game system is)

    That all I'm asking, just a proper stand alone screenshot homebrew. Don't care how is done. If somehow it can be added to luma cfw or any cfw, or from homebrew loader, or a cia installed on home screen.

    Something else i considered is maybe some kind of software video recorder that can record compressed video to the sd card or something but I would assume that is either impossible or not enough interest with stuff like that NTR streaming or a 3DS capture device (By the way require hard mod to work, think about it if you have money)

    if you have an o3ds and an USA emunand you can install the 11.4 dev FW with test menu. it allows for screenshots. There should be a tutorial somewhere.

    That feature doesn't work on all games. I can't remember which game it didn't work on, but I remember it not working on some games. It only let me put a journal entry, not a screenshot.

    @Sonic Angel Knight I did hear that the Test Menu can take screenshots. I remember a thread posted a couple of months ago and someone mentioned the Test Menu. You could probably look into that.

    Well considering the 3DS hardware limits if you wanted to make a screenshot a higher resolution than the screen resolution then it would mean a slow down and of course there would need to be free resources for it to use as well.

    This test menu everyone is talking about. Is a cia dumped by a test system correct? It looks like this?

    That's DevMenu. Test Menu has its own CIA, iirc. I don't know what the icon looks like.

    afaik testmenu must be installed first and then change homemenu to testmenu in config, since its one of the apps, that someone managed to dump as "leftover" from a stock nand, since those files get overwritten by the regular firmware stuff before the units are being packed and shipped etc... (btw you are literally everywhere.)

    If you test it out, can you report back here and give the results?

    Whatever this test menu is, it seem like very taboo and too much for simple use. A homebrew that can easily remedy this and be used by everyone SAFELY, is probably a better option.
