    Depends on the game what you're trying to run.
    I can't say for forwarded games redirected to the SD but thus far flashcard forwarders have been doing great for me.
    Have a look at this guide here

    Cool, I would like SD forwarding though, I guess performance is still probably not up to par with flashcarts.

    Hello @Sono
    I hope you don’t mind my question. But i’m a fan of Pokemon Mystery Dungeon explorers of sky (best pkm game ever) and wanted to know how i can make this game widescreen since it’s not supported in the list.

    I'm not Sono, but I've done a few of the widescreen cheats for the games on that list. Unfortunately, 2D games are somewhere between extremely difficult and impossible to hack to add widescreen support. They're generally designed around displaying a specific number of tiles, so the "extra" tiles for widescreen just aren't sitting in memory waiting to be displayed. For 3D games it's a different matter, because the 3D world still exists in memory even in the parts that you can't see, so we can adjust the camera to show more of the game. For 2D games, you'll basically just have to keep playing in 4:3.

    I'm not a romhacker, sorry :/

    Also, 2D is afaik a different display mode in the DS "GPU", so it's impossible to do anamorphic 2D

    No that sadly will most likely never be a thing due to how the DS operates Though flashcarts are quite cheap you could get a good r4i for $20

    Yeah I have a DSTWO so I'm fine, it's almost pointless for me but it would be really cool to do it without a flashcart and have the games on the home screen. Is this all because the flashcart has some special emulating hardware the 3DS doesn't or something?

    Wait what? I can already play NDS games at full speed through the SD, and yeah, the compatibility hasn't made to the 100% yet, but it has improved greatly and the already supported games are the most popular, not to mention that this let's you enhance some things like the sound frequency (only with the 3DS/DSi) and clock speeds.

    Yeah you should try it out, I'm still amazed that a concept like this that was believed to be completely impossible, is progressing as time goes and will likely reach 100% compatibility with the DS library.

    check the compatibility list.

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1LRTkXOUXraTMjg1eedz_f7b5jiuyMv2x6e_jY_nyHSc/edit#gid=0

    its always improving now and loads of games run at full speed too.

    i would rather back this project then spend money on a DS flashcart these days.

    now all the new ones have timebombs. which make the flashcarts stop working after a while.

    did you try metroid prime hunters and both zelda touch games? zelda with widescreen and analog stick patch would a great opportunity to retry those games.

    edit: I didn't realized zelda is played mostly by the bottom screen, so it's useless.

    I followed all steps in the Twilight menu tab, but not a single game works in widescreen.

    Did you use the manual method or the Updater method? If you used the second, then is because that at the moment is needed to do the manual installation as there is some issue with latest TwilightMenu++ ver. to download through the updater.

    Finally, I can now play High School Musical in WIDESCREEN!!!!!

    On the other hand, I don't see Super Princess Peach. I'd like to replay that game and complete it once again.
