I know we've had capabilities to edit the sleep screen for some time. But when the news first dropped on this, I remember feeling that it sounded to convoluted and complicated. Looking recently, I found a very simple and straightforward tutorial on how to do so here: http://dungeonfire.tk/ I followed it, and within 15 minutes or so I had my custom sleep screen up and running. It is a bummer that when new firmwares drop, you must first reinstall a non edited home menu and then reedit and reinstall the sleep screen edit. But updates do seem to drop less and less often for the 3DS and eventually we'll be on the latest and final firmware for the system, and this issue will not even really be an issue any more.

Regardless, this is what I turned my Sleep Screen into:

If you're curious I use both MikeDubbz and MikaDubbz as screen names. I tried to make my sleep screen a bit informative to the more secretive features that my hacked 3DS has in the event I ever lend it to someone and they aren't sure how to do some of these things.

I went the opposite route and tried to keep the system as stock-looking as possible with minimal indication that it runs a CFW. The sleep screen was edited to display my contact information in case the console is lost:

What's nice is that this text is persistent and should stay intact even if the system is formatted.

How do you get a custom sleep screen?
Edit: Nevermind didn't read the description :rofl2:

I wish you could edit the luma button lock to display contact info, since people wouldn't even see these screens if it got lost past that if it's enabled.

You can do that too.
"PIN lock: Require a PIN to be entered before continuing boot. A message can be displayed on the bottom screen at the PIN input screen by placing a text file named pinmessage.txt in /luma (800 characters maximum!)."

HI, i am also customizing my sleep screen and liked the colors you used and wondered if you could give the codes for each color and their corresponding section.

    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
