To mod a pcsx rearmed.cia 1.36 (last known Pcsx to work with Old3DS) to include Unai's renderer and CHD support or a newer version so that it can be actually opened by the old3ds since newer versions just give an error whenever you try to even opening it from the menu? I know most games will still be relatively slow on Old3Ds but by all accounts I think we should at least get the chance to test this since even back then it was possible to play some PSX 2D games at relatively decent (although not full speed) some of the games that I found ran better on my old3ds were:
Castlevania SOTN (pbp) with removed music and video (40fps to 60fps for most of the game)
Mortal Kombat Trilogy (depending on the stage this one actually ran the full 60fps if not faster, same format and process as the above)
Marvel vs Capcom (33 to 45 fps)

Care to elaborate more please? I don't mean to be rude but if it can't be done then there must be a reason. Unai's renderer is/was said to be less consuming than the one we previously used, sacrificing accuracy for speed so is there a reason why it couldn't be implemented? We already know results won't be as good as a New3DS but that doesn't mean it's not worth pursuing for Old3ds users like me.

finally managed to test this, and it is a great improvement for 2d games. 3d games like Crash bandicoot 2 go slightly above 30 fps (max 45 in some stages) which is a great improvement . BTW I used cxitool to make a cia out of the 3dsx and I'm noticing it's slightly faster than the 3dsx version, sadly I can't add icons because when I add it all of the sudden my 3ds tells me that it's new 3ds software and I can't use it.

That should be investigated! Makes me wonder is built straight as CIA will do any better?

    Not lollipops; what Americans would call "candies" or just "candy" IDK. Before the pandemic, cinemas used to have buckets of different ones - sour cola, sour watermelon, and many others; I used to get a scoopful of two or three types into a paper bag to have throughout the movie.
