    The image quality is noticeable improved in manglegroove forest. Take a shot with reversenx and without in the area then compare.

    Haven’t tried without overclock, you will notice the fan on Switch goes crazy too.

    Edit: I also have a draw distance mod applied, so in my case there’s even more CPU/GPU overload.

    I checked again, but there is really no noticeable difference. I checked for example the faces and they are still washed out, I assume they are clearer in docked mode. Is it possible it is not working, even ReverseNX tool is telling me global docked flag is set?

    When you tried with NSP instead of Kips, did you delete the kips first or did you just add the NSP folder too?

    Also do I do something wrong or is it correct to go first to album (hb menu) then start reversenx tool check that global docked flag is set, exit with “x”, press home button to return to home screen and start the game normally from there?

    The game uses dynamic resolution depending on the GPU workload, make sure play with charger at docked speed.

    You will notice the fan will spin way faster than it does in handheld mode.

    Important: after you copy the nsp folder make sure to reboot atmosphere.

    So I tried this out and it didn't seem to have any effect on my switch in handheld mode.
    Then I deleted it after disabling it on ReverseNX tool.
    But then when I docked my Switch, it's stuck on 720p. It looks like it's stuck in handheld mode even when docked. I don't know how to fix this.
    I'm using Atmosphere.

    Probably you have set flags for handled on everything?

    I believe I unset them, but in that case do I need to put ReverseNX back on to fix it?

    If it still hangs to handheld, then you didn't delete it correctly. Delete SaltySD folder, delete kip file or nsp folder (depends on what you have used) and restart Switch.

    Does it matter in which folder I save the reversenx tool nrp or it will work regardless as long as I browse to it and open it? It’s still not working for me, although the tool tells me global docked flag is set...

    Delete and redownload everything and restart Atmos to make it work.

    Here are some tips to know:
    -If you are unsure if its working, run a game like Mario Maker 2, that have something blocked in one mode (in MM2 you can only move the cursor with the buttons and stick in docked mode, handheld mode only use touchscreen and doesn't show the cursor when making courses)
    -You can't change modes when a game is running. You can set the flags, but it will only take effect when closing and restarting the game.
    -Some games are tied to overclocking, like Dragon Quest, so you will only see a difference in handheld with docked flag, when overclocked.
    -in dragon quest you can tell between handheld vs docked by seeing the 2D artwork of the items. In handheld is badly compressed, like very distorted.

    it looks more sharp and the icons and size of text is smaller when docked i think, but with dinamyc resolution both modes are the same if OC or/and graphic mods
    20% more of grass i read

    Witcher 3 in docked and handheld works almost the same. Docked has higher minimal dynamic resolution, slightly thicker grass and will ask you for controller at the beginning of game.
    Both modes are trying to get to 720p.

    How does setting this up change Overclocking Configs for sys-clk? Let's say I have mine setup with the handheld flag, Will my docked overclock settings still be applied when docked?

    sys-clk uses the mode your console is really in, not the one reversenx says.

    Is there a sure way to quickly test if ReverseNX is working? Like a certain game who's intro changing because of docked mode (controlls notification etc) instead of looking in a log?

    Im using it on SX OS 2.9.2 and placed the folder in the SX OS folder. and ofc the salty Sd folder.

    So irritating thread... Please somebody say a clear yes or no:
    On the newest SX OS, does work...
    1.) ReverseNX?
    2.) ReverseNX-Tool?
    3.) sys-clk?
    4.) sys-clk editor?
    5.) freebird?

    Thank you :)
