    Who wants to know?
    so do you plan to integrate this into TWiLightMenu++ or should we all just use this?

    Just tried the patcher, and for some reason any patching method stopped to work for me, I suspect that the culprit is the new config in TWiLightMenu ++ conflicting with the patches, because it now appears a filtering option, do yo know @Robz8 if that may be the cause?. I will roll back to earlier version so I can test properly, and thank you very much for this @Sono !:D

    Thank you Sono!

    So far my favorite two are "Sharpen test 1" and "Linear Sharpen 1"

    Any suggestions from people who've tried it?

    Edit: One suggestion would be to have an indicator to know if holding X registered your selection or not. I held it several times to be safe.

    It should not be down. Did you try a few times? Sometimes you have to try a few times.

    Even on old3DS you don't have to hold it for more than one second. On new3DS it's almost instant.

    Also, I'm bad at UI design, so I don't know where I would put the indicator.

    Yeah, just use this.

    For TWLMenu++, I plan on having widescreen used for certain games with a widescreen cheat from here:
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/widescreen-cheats-for-ds-games-on-3ds.543212/

    @Sono Speaking of widescreen, once you get that working, I would like to request something.
    After selecting the scaling filter from the list, after the "TwlBg.cxi" is made in "sysmodules" folder, have a widescreen version with the same filter selected, made at "sd:/_nds/TWiLightMenu/TwlBg" and call it "Widescreen.cxi", so TWiLight Menu++ can switch between the regular and widescreen versions at anytime, for games that have a widescreen cheat.

    I could try somehow integrating it, but then old3DS users would have to wait 12minutes :/

    If it's a one-time wait I'd say it's worth it.

    Re: Robz8 and SomeGamer, perhaps the easiest solution on your end @Sono would be to show a prompt, e.g. "Build widescreen TwlBg too? A: Yes, B: No" when the user selects a scaling option. Best of both worlds.

    My connection times out regardless of how many times I try to download it. Doesn't work with other browsers or download managers either.

    Doesn't work either. I think it has something to do with the domain.

    Very cool thing, although, honestly, after examining all the filters for myself, I find that Nintendo's default seems to look the best anyway.
