    My favorite dungeon crawling homebrew game ported to the 3DS keeps freezing when I'm on the title screen... why?

    Why aren't you reporting in it's release thread?

    Anyway, give some information:
    • with title screen are you referring to the Game title sceen? (the one with the Continue and New game options)
    • it freezes as soon as starting the game or after some amount of time?
    • Ae you using the CIA or the 3dsx?
    • Version of the game?
    • O3ds or N3ds?
    • 3ds FW and CFW/entrypoint?

    The game sometime freezes, it's a know problem using the GPU, but usually it happens very seldom. Older version (the ones with the diagonal line on the screen) crash less frequently.

    Game title screen, a second after the title screen loads, CIA version, Latest version, 2DS, and Luma CFW.

    then probably a corrupted savefile.

    Try deleting (or better renaming, so you can undo) the SaveFile.sav file in /3ds/meritous.

    whatever you want, as long as it's changed the game won'r find it. I usually add .bak at the end of the file or simply add a _ at the end .

    There's nothing in the folder, so, no.

    Wolvan's Homebr3w app. I'll download from your GitHub and see if it makes a difference...

    I used the CIA from your github, and it didn't work.

    I downloaded the starter pack, and I do not see the dspfirm bumper you speak of.

    Do you mean this?: https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-dsp-firmware-dumper.402108/
