    Wow! Thanks for reading! :D
    So, if someone's got spare time for seemingly pointless projects, I could use 3dsx files that:
    • return to HBL after it's launched
    • launch the gamecard immediately
    • launch pre-installed apps (one for each, but the least important)
    Thanks a lot!

    For this one specifically, doesn't the Region-free launcher do this? It works with in-region games as well.

    Almost. For my needs, it doesn't need to be region free, but needs to launch the card immediately, without confirmation

    It's really not that hard to press A though a second time, is it? It'd probably require more effort to scroll and tap the homebrew to launch the game card.

    I would place it on top! :P BTW, I want to directly launch the 3dsx from themehax.

    Still would probably require more effort than it's worth :P

    Thank you so much! Is it in LUA? And what happens if I boot it directly, without HBL? (just curious)

    Here's one that'll launch a gamecard.

    Yes, i used Lua Player Plus.
    I don't know what happens if you boot it directly, but make sure index.lua is in the same directory.

    OK. Its finally time for me to learn some LUA. They say it's easier than C... Could you recommend me a starting point?

    Sorry for being a bit dumb but does this auto load your game cart when you switch on simply by pressing L to load homemenu.hax pretty sure that is what it does but as I have not slept for two days my brain is not functioning right lol

    It can be made that way. It can even autoload when not pressing anything.

    Presumably you Hold L while booting up to load Boot.3dsx which then loads the game card.
