    Before posting, please check out the BootCTR9 wiki.

    What informations should you post when you have a problem
    • A description of your problem
    • A list of thinks you have already tried
    • Your configuration in a spoiler
    • Your BootCTR9 filelog in a spoiler (you need to enable it in your configuration)

    What I should not post here:
    • Feature discussions - this should be done in Github issues
    • Normal feedback and release questions - this should be done in the release thread
    Every frequently asked question will be added to the FAQ section of the wiki, to help to prevent these problems in future.

    Gambia, The
    if you mean, that so you want that everthing should have it own animation, yes, just define the payload splashes :)

    If you mean, that both should have the same, just use the same path for both.

    Also if you want to define a default animation for every payload, that is always used if you have not defined something else, you could use the global section, it will allow you to define your own default values.

    Does BootCTR9 supports top and bottom splash images?

    atm it is only supporting top screen splashes and animations, but I will add bottom screen splashes too, when I have enough time.

    Whenever I boot my console using BootCTR9's arm9loaderhax.bin, it gives me an error:

    [DEBUG] Screens enabled
    [PANIC] Trying to load a 3dsx - this is
    Press any key to shutdown
    [DEBUG] shutdown

    Here is my config:

    try to remove all the "" from the configuration, it trys to read them as number and returns 0 (and would also interpret them as part of the filepath) , because its not a number :)

    It worked. But now when it boots, it says:

    [PANIC] Failed to load the [DEFAULT] se
    Press any key to shutdown
    [DEBUG] shutdown

    EDIT: Modified the config:

    BootCTR9 only supports single buttons atm (could maybe change in future) so the ';' could maybe break the parsing of the config file.
    If that doesn't help, please set "fileLog" to 1 in your config file and post the "arm9bootloader.log" file :)

    Here's the log:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Note: Just the Default one doesn't works.

    It's because you wrote [Default] instead of [DEFAULT], so it's not able to read the [DEFAULT] section.
    It's easy to miss something like that, I needed around 15 minutes to identify it xD

    I did that after it gave the error, because on the configuration page of wiki it's [Default]. Gonna try it anyways.

    Nvm, it worked now, thx!

    Here is the entire contents of my config file:

    [DEFAULT]
    path = /luma.firm
    delay = 1000
    splash = 4
    splash_image = /anim/0
    screenBrightness = 0x30
    enablePathFix = 1

    On the root of my folder is boot.firm from this here, and the old boot.firm was renamed to luma.firm also on the root
    I have the animation file named anim in the directory anim/0/ it is only a top screen animation that worked with boot9anim
    Yet, while this loads up my 3DS, it does not show the animation, instead it just says Payload/luma.firm, and then loads into my 3DS. Not sure if I'm missing something or what.
