    theres 2 groups that benefit from this.

    those who want the graphics of docked in handheld

    those who want the handheld version of the game to run a title at full speed while docked because of drops in the docked version(smaller batch, but probably exist). Basically trading quality for performance.

    I am also having the crashing issue. If I launch cfw it hangs on the Switch logo and through payload it crashes at lock screen. Im using Kosmos 13.02 at firmware 8.0.1 (AMS 0.9.2). My payload is hekate_ctcaer_5.0.1.pre6.bin. I also checked the hekate_ipl.ini and i don't have atmosphere=1 all I have in that file is [stock_DANGEROUS] [PreventGCUpdate] kip1patch=nogc under that file.

    Sorry for all the text i just wanted to give as much info as I can.

    Thanks for any help and also your work on this. It looks awesome and i hope i can get it working.

    Tried on 5.1 AMS 0.8.9 -- did not work.

    Black screen freeze on Tales of Vesperia, Zelda BOTW, and Stardew Valley

    Try first newer atmosphere. Then we can assume 5.1 is not compatible.

    Try to delete everything under atmosphere profile except fss0 line.

    bootloader/hekate_ipl.ini

    Code:
    {--- Custom Firmware ---}
    [CFW (SYSNAND)]
    emummc_force_disable=1
    fss0=atmosphere/fusee-secondary.bin
    kip1patch=nosigchk
    atmosphere=1
    logopath=bootloader/bootlogo.bmp
    icon=bootloader/res/icon_payload.bmp
    {}
    Change it to

    Code:
    {--- Custom Firmware ---}
    [CFW (SYSNAND)]
    fss0=atmosphere/fusee-secondary.bin
    {}
    If it's working, try to add under fss0 line
    Code:
    kip1patch=nosigchk
    emummc_force_disable=1
    and check again.

    Thank you so much. No wonder i didn't see it. I have that file on the root of my sd card and that is the one i was looking at.

    Edit:
    Well i still have it crash at lock screen. :( I changed it to..
    {--- Custom Firmware ---}

    [CFW (SYSNAND)]
    fss0=atmosphere/fusee-secondary.bin
    {}

    But it still crashes. Not sure what im doing wrong but hopefully i get it at some point.

    2nd Edit:
    Well I dont know what i did wrong the first time but its now working. Thanks you so much for your help man. Also im playing V-Rally 4 (v1.2.0) and man it looks great!

    Sorry if I’m misunderstanding, but it looks like with the changes above I can use this hack with EmuMMC? Is that right?
    That’d be amazing !

    From tests of one guy - no. Even without any additional lines emummc still freezes.

    So I have an undockable Switch. a 3rd party dock fried it.
    Would there be any benefit of using this? Or do you think it could really mess things up?

    Nice, so does the games really have the full graphic power on the switch screen as like in docked mode?

    Have anyone tested on Zelda, hoe many battery life does it get at full docked mode while playing portable?

    if people want 720P in dock then why not manually set tv resolution to 720P? in system options

    If you do that games are still rendered to target a 1080p display and then downscaled to 720p while portable mode actually targets a 720p display. The workload for the system doesn't change at all if you change the docked resolution, it's just scaling to a different output resolution in the end.

    because the game still outputs at 1080p, and you dont get any performance increase

    This is in experimental phase. You're doing it on your own, I'm not taking any responsibility. You have that in license on github.
    I'm using it every day to test new things and for now everything was possible to revert by just deleting saltynx.
