I'm sure you've noticed that the NN3DS' improved 3D with head tracking isn't working properly with the new OoT exploit and Gateway.

Well, i have more experimenting to do, but I ran the exploit with 3D turned off, then turned on 3D inside of majora's mask (US version, on a EUR/AUS NN3DS), at which point it was even more borked than usual.. totally double-image, no useful 3D image.

I had a thought: maybe putting it to sleep and waking up would "jog" the 3D engine to display properly.

so i closed the NN3DS and watched the light blink, and opened it again.. not only was 3D working, but the new enhanced 3D was mostly working.. i say mostly because it did seem to be a tad bit more finicky than normal... but maybe this is a good development! If its already been done or somehting silly like that, please disregard this rather than flame me.. :) thanks

This is already known ;).

Yes, both the issue and the fix was already known about more than 48 hours before Gateway even released their n3DS compatible update.
Also, since we can't always have good news, we have our first bug on N3DS. Our firm launching procedure somehow breaks 3D. If you leave 3D on, you can use it but it breaks face tracking. Likewise, if you leave it off, it stays off while in the CFW and moving the 3D slider causes this weird interlacing between the two 3D layers. We hope to fix this though, it's a very strange bug.

Judging by this post WulfyStylez made, it seems they may have already fixed within that 48hour period.
i'm actually losing my shit over this, it's such a trivial bug

The idea that this community has a group of developers who are as skilled as (perhaps more than) Gateway's team is incredibly exciting!

awww.. :cry: I was fairly excited to contribute my first noteworthy discovery to the temper community! Oh well, I will not give up contributing! thanks for letting me know w0dash!

[edit] thanks also zidapi for the further details you provided! You were posting just as I was typing, so I hadn't seen your reply when i replied w0dash [/edit]

p.s. Zidapi, I agree about the developers in the community being as skilled as gateway's team. Often, it seems the only thing that slows things down is either miscommunication/misunderstanding, or all the non-dev chatter and spam that clutters dev threads. But, without that, we wouldn't be gbatemp :moogle:

    also gonna install twilight menu in my r4 flashcard
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    One thing that just occurred to me.... The sound on the 2600 sucked less back then the harsh sound we hear now is from infinitely better speakers we have now, back when the 2600 was new speakers produced a almost muffled sound, like CRTs made old graphics look slightly better.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I wonder if I could recommend that to some emulation devs that perhaps the sound could use some smoothing out to simulate those old TVs
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I think a few of the early systems could benefit from that, at least up to the 8 bit generation, by the 16 bit generation I think TVs had gotten a lot better in almost every way

    it says it only works for the original R4, R4i Gold (r4ids.cn), R4iDSN (r4idsn.com) and Acekard R.P.G.
