    Is the ROM compatability greater/equal compared to GBARunner 2?
    What are the differences ?

    Sorry I'm just curious, I havn't used any of the two (yet).

    It runs natively on actual GBA hardware, the only issues it currently has are related to proper save type detection.

    IMHO, it's easier to do a boot override forking fastboot or luma using a little struct in FCRAM in the same fashion. Really easy to do, your code is already compatible with that and not only would allow rebooting from a CIA into open_agb_firm but also writing to FCRAM from open_agb_firm to boot back into another thing.

    That could be a really cool feature for this type of special corner cases.

    You could even piggyback arguments for open_agb_firm (ROM to load, savedata type...)
    If you need further explanation DM me no probs.

    Yeah one of the things we discussed was to use the already existing launchers and just have fastboot boot open_agb_firm when the BOOTENV is GBA mode (profi is one of the main devs too). Then we just use the firmlaunch parameters set up and that'd be more or less it afaict (havent really tried it myself tbh).
    This eliminates the need to write a brand new launcher, but it comes with the problem of save management - though I guess there could be a GM9 script that exports the internal format into something understandable by open_agb_firm.

    By the way, if you're more interested in this, we mostly discuss this in #godmode9 @ freenode, or just through the gm9 discord server which has a bridge in place to the irc channel.

    This is awesome! :D If it gets a proper GUI and a way to launch it from the 3DS Home Menu I can definitely see me using this.

    I prefer launching it how it is now due to how fast you can get a game loaded. No need to wait for system menu to load ect.

    GUIs just get in the way of actually getting into what we want to do (IE, play the game). Besides, I presume that something like Twilight Menu++ will integrate this eventually, so people might as well use that as their UI eventually.

    Would be a bit weird for Twilight Menu since this program relies on 3DS-exclusive technology. It will not work on DS/i at all.

    I'm fanboying over this wonderful piece of software. It works so fucking fast that it feels like a second life has been given to my 3DS.

    Gone are the days of long waits while the console reboots itself over and over between each game change (even having to do CIAs for each and every game). Now it's just pressing some buttons and you're ready to go! Fantastic, truly amazing.

    Super excited for new updates regarding this, and maybe who knows, somebody makes something similar for the DS firmware on the 3DS. It would be sick Fuck the 3DS UI slowness, this is way cooler. Let that UI be for the 3DS games only.

    Are remappable buttons going to be a thing? I can't stand what they did on 3DS with the button mappings.

    That's fair, ideally both methods should be available so everyone can load it how they want.

    The new filter definitely comes in handy with blur and color mixing (zoom in).

    Now you can print the RTC on the bottom screen ^_^

    @profi200 What method do you used to show graphics on the bottom screen through AGB? It has weird scrolling issues on Katsukity's card.

    The card or its software probably can't handle variable framerate. Because it's next to impossible to perfectly synchronize GBA and 3DS LCD output, the 3DS LCD's framerate has to be flickered by repeatedly adjusting how many lines it should draw, and this probably messes with your capture card.

    It sucks that he's banned. Is this likely to affect him working on this project ?

    Not in the slightest. GBAtemp has no relevancy to what he does on github or on IRC
