    Yes, hans. Take images using the home button, and use the screenshot tool to convert it into files.
    ^ Use this if you have CFW

    If you are really inclined, you could install TestMenu on an old3DS so you can screenshot in extended RAM games.

    Then you can use my tool that was recently updated to work with TestMenu here (GitHub) to combine them into nice looking screenshots. It'll also work with NTR and HANS format screenshots. (Just put them all in the same folder and it'll figure it out)!

    • HANS: If you have no CFW and are stuck on 11.x, you can use HANS. However it won't work with extended memory mode titles nor titles that were PASLR'd (smealum is working on the latter).
    • TestMenu: Official Nintendo application. Part of the devfirm present on 3DS development unit. For whatever reason, retail units have a legit ticket for this title and so you can happily install it and run it (will need Luma3DS + UNITINFO patch + Config.cia). It's the best way to take screenshots on the 3DS, since it supports every single 3DS title.
    • NTRCFW: If you have CFW and don't want to use tools from Nintendo's SDK, which you probably don't own, then your best solution is NTRCFW. It works on all firmwares, however doesn't work with extended memory mode titles.

    I unfortunately cannot say here because it requires stuff from the official Nintendo SDK. You'll need to search on some other sites for it.

    First download testmenu, devmenu, and config (To illegal to share). Turn on UNITINFO in luma options. Boot config and the select menu settings. Change Menu to Test Menu. Press power button to reboot. Open devmenu then your app (Or boot cart) and press home at screenshot part then L.



    Its fine to say how but you just can't link it.

    Still can't get this test menu thingy to work, I thought it was the arm9 boot manager that interfered but I guess not. Using Luma 6.6

    Sorry for necroposting but, can someone send me a private message with a Test Menu?
    I have searched in the usual places and, or the web pages do not work or there is no download for that application

    No. Not even in PMs is it allowed. Get the SDK and use it from there. Not sure if the right place is developer.nintendo.com but you need to install it.
