    What this simple homebrew does is displays font.ttf from your SD card.

    font.ttf should be placed in the same directory as the .3dsx and index.lua files.

    This was made in LUA with LPP-3ds

    Pressing B exits to the homebrew launcher (convenient, eh?)

    In a future update I would like to make it that you can make the text bigger/smaller by pressing R/L

    Special thanks to:
    Smealum for his userland exploits
    Big thanks to Rinnegatamante for LPP-3DS
    ihaveamac for helping me with bugs in my code and giving me tips to make my homebrew better

    And of course, download (3dsx only, for now, but would be pretty easy to add a .elf to the download if requested): https://www.dropbox.com/s/lchtewly62ckdsk/Font Tester.zip?dl=0

    I have made a new download with the elf included and an smdh! But the smdh seems to load Sunshell's description for some reason, better fix that. https://www.dropbox.com/s/lchtewly62ckdsk/Font Tester.zip?dl=0

    Update: Fixed SMDH, .elf and .3dsx still included https://www.dropbox.com/s/lchtewly62ckdsk/Font Tester.zip?dl=0

    Could you add the .elf? I kinda feel like using a .cia of it.

    I don't know if they can use something other than ninjhax 2.x (I can't), but in the mean time you could try getting lpp-3ds directly (there's an .elf file included) and then put index.lua in the same folder as it.

    You should start off with something simple, like a hello world. I use lpp-3ds, it is great for beginners.

    I coded a hello world in C. I just can't think of what to actually make.

    Oh, so you are already smart. Maybe a simple homebrew that displays top.bmp on the top screen and bottom.bmp on the touch screen?

    Ok. And is bmp just easier to display on the 3ds?

    Maybe take this to a PM to avoid cluttering your thread?

    Sure, but if you make this in C, I don't think I can help you as I don't know C.
