    You may have heard of NTR Launcher (by @Apache Thunder), the DSiWare app that brings back the classic DS boot screen for your DS games, but now... in NTR Launcher 3D (based on TWLoader), experience the DS boot screen in 3D!

    Includes
    • Both DS and DSi boot screens in 3D, and 240p!
    • Boot screen can be viewed in it's new or orignal aspect ratios.
    • All 6 languages, including Chinese (iQue logo included), and Korean.
    • Change settings by holding A after the DS boot screen is done playing, or before it reboots into NTR mode.
    • You can turn on/off Rainbow LED, also in TWLoader.
    Planned features
    • Launch Slot-1 card directly, so TWL and newer NTR games will work.

    Download
    Install both CIAs at "sd:/cia/".

    Pretty cool! I have no use for this since the missing screen doesn't bother me, but maybe someone will use it for the "complete look". Also, what happens if you use this with a flashcart?

    The flashcard will run as normal, but should work with CycloDS Evolution as well.

    Oddly enough, this boots the R4i SDHC 1.4.4 that I have without a problem. Yet, TWLoader still can't boot it in the DSi Menu theme?

    Nice! Any way to have this forward to the DSTT loader screen? TWLoader keeps giving me an Arm11 exception when I launch it, so this would be a nice replacement for now.

    Are you using the latest TWLoader version?

    What's up with this icon?

    The launch screens look great, and the CPU options & other features are really nice too. But it doesn't seem like there's a way to quit from the settings without exiting to the home menu. Could we get an option to change the settings button as well?

    I really like how it looks and its a great replacement for the old Slot 1 launcher but would it be possible for the app to force the original ds resolution (like the one you get by holding Select while launching DS or GameBoy games)? Thanks

    Placeholder.
    Huh?
    On the boot screen or the games?
    If you mean the boot screen, then no, as that'll remove the enhancement value.
    If you mean the games, then also no, as TWL_FIRM will have to be reverse engineered to do any hacking to it.

    I tried it now, and it works great with my CycloDS in NTR mode, but when I set it to TWL speed it only gives me a white screen (fortunately, setting VRAM boost on with it fixes it). However setting TWL mode on freezes the flashcart's loading screen. Is this normal? Other than that, it's a great way to change settings without editing the ini file.

    Yeah. Some NTR stuff, such as the CycloDS, won't run normally in TWL mode.

    Out of all the features in twloader, ntr mode, and ndsbootstrap, this was the last thing i could have imagined would get updated. Really nice work though, looks clean as ever.

    So a CycloDS should still work with this in NTR mode, right? (re: the other thread - do I still need to pop in another cart that makes the icon appear first?)

    I like this so far, but I think the double banner kind of ruins it. Maybe add an option that just has one banner?
    (also it doesn't like my DSTT)
    One more thing:
