    This is a plugin loader for .3gx files

    Doesn't answer the question. What's a 3GX plugin? It's the first time I've ever heard of it.

    Hey! Nice work, but I'm sorry to tell you that the .3gx plugin loader branch you tried to update is outdated. @Nanquitas and me have been working on a new and updated .3gx build, (based on Luma 10.1.3). The sources aren't on github, you can find them in the Nanquitas Playground discord server. (Until it's stable enough for widespread release.)
    https://discord.gg/z4ZMh27

    I'd recommend not trying to update this version of the plugin loader as it's deprecated!!!!!

    .3gx files are the new plugin files used by Luma3DS plugin loader. It allows executing extra code in the game process to allow more features. (Like .plg plugins did in NTR CFW)

    The fork I used is this. It's based on Luma3DS v10.0.1, and was released less than a year ago. I wonder - why are you saying it's deprecated?
    I'm glad you are working on an updated version, however I don't see why should my one be invalid. I've updated it, how can it be deprecated if I literally just took the old code and updated it to work with the latest one?
    I'm not saying this in an aggressive or rude way, I'm genuinely curious.

    EDIT (clarification):
    Yes, the build I published is not official, and is probably not the best one ever. However, I literally stated (on the GitHub page) that the build is not in a "production" state, and that you could find bugs. It needs work, sure, but it works. And it's stable enough, in my opinion. Every piece of software has a "beta" state before a "stable" one, and I don't see why publishing something that is _not 100% stable_, but still _usable_ would be bad.

    The .3gx plugin format itself has been updated, many new things were added to it. The old plugin loader (the one from last year) won't work with new plugins.
    The new changes were made in the past month, I'm telling you so you don't waste your time on something that will be outdated pretty soon. ^^'

    Understood. Unfortunately, the time has already been spent, so there's no fix for that. I'll stop updating it then. Meanwhile, I'll be happy to wait for your better, updated version.

    I think people will be happy anyway to have a working 3gx implementation on the latest version of Luma, even if not with the latest version of the plugin manager itself - at least for the moment.

    I for one am still impressed as hell that a young coder stepped in and churned this out. Excellent work. I hope you keep cranking on Projects for the 3DS. There are plenty that could use your skills!!!

    Well, thank you - I'm honored!
    I'm a high-school student, and I just turned 18 a month ago. Coding has been my passion since I was 11, although I've always been very familiar with Java/C# and only recently (about 3 years) started the C/C++ journey.
    What you said is something I completely agree with and that I've been thinking about for the past few days, however I'm realizing that I was really happy to have done something useful for the community for once, and being put down like this is really depressing. My post even got deleted on reddit, without any warning nor explanation... That's so infuriating.
    Actually, it makes me wonder if trying to help and be useful is even worth it. I'm pretty confident that 90% of the community does not have the time nor ability to completely update a firmware, and another 8-9% doesn't care or bother doing it. I really thought that what I was doing could be useful in some way, and seeing my work just get censored and disrespected like this for no reason is so off-putting.
    I'm pretty sure this is gonna be my first and last public project for the 3DS - not because of this post on GBATemp, since here at least I got an explanation about what's upcoming and why this is (apparently, although I like to disagree) completely useless - but mainly because of reddit. The thread had less than 24 hours of uptime. The only explanation I can give myself is that some mod's friend asked them to take it down because it would've taken the light they should've been getting in a few weeks/months, however I don't want to be polemical and I don't want to look like a triggered offended boy, so I'm obviously not accusing anyone nor starting any argument - just explaining my perspective and feelings.
    And I want to clarify that I'm not saying I'll stop publishing my 3DS projects because of my feelings, but because of how things were handled. If I do something for a community, and the community replies by making me disappear, I don't think I should keep participating, since clearly I'm not welcome there. Doing stuff for others is tiring, although completely worth it and even fulfilling, if at least respected and appreciated. I am a shy person, and this was such a horrible experience, that I'm not sure I'll want to try again.

    Anyhow, I had a few free hours today and since I was bored, I accidentally fixed a very annoying kernel panic which crashed the console every time you closed a game that loaded plugins.
    If anyone is interested, here it is, beta 2.

    Thanks @lol7344. I imagine (without personal experience) that it’s hard for a developer to have their work disregarded. I think just about everyone has had experience with having a reddit thread deleted for inscrutable reasons. That said I hope you don’t let it deter you from further honing your skills.

    Selfishly, I’d love to see what you could do working on something like 3DSync, which has shown a lot of promise in fulfilling a HUGE hole, but clearly needs some loving.

    Why did they remove the newer version?
    I was surprised to find that the post had been removed.
    I am very grateful to you, now I can use the latest version of Luma and also use Action Replay!
    We have people who appreciate the time you invested in the project!

    The newest one had a glaring flaw within it that was not correctly rectified. As such they decided it would be best to remove it until that flaw was corrected.

    I am trying to use https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-nsmb2-luma-plugin-region-free.559643/ in conjuction with this version. But the problem is that I get a kernel panic when enabling the screen filters (blue light filters).
    Am I doing something wrong? Tried version 10.2 and 10.1.3 (both beta's). Official Luma boot.firm works fine with the filters.

    EDIT: using this version of Luma https://github.com/mariohackandglitch/Luma3DS

    Version 10.0.1 (with blue light filters) cheat support and support for plugin loading it works flawlessly.
