(I think this is the right place to ask this??) Is there a way to change the brightness of the power light through some homebrew or other? On an o2ds if that makes a difference. I tend to play in the dark a lot and that blue light is SO glaring and hurts my eyes in comparison to how bright the actual device screens are when using the lowest brightness setting.

I know you can turn off the power light, but you can't easily change the brightness unless you are below a certain firmware version and you run homebrew.

To turn off the power light, press L + Down + Select, select Toggle LEDs, and press A. Read the warning, and press B 3 times.

There is also a blue light filter on the latest Luma3DS version (v10.0.1), press L + Down + Select, select Screen filters, choose an option, and push B twice. This only lasts until the lid is closed or the console is powered off.

Thanks everyone. I'll use the option in Luma to turn off the LEDs. That redshift option is also great, unfortunately not super helpful for me because I'm hardly playing anything that's not on virtual console at the moment, but maybe when I get around to my actual 3DS games I'll keep it in mind LOL.

Redshift should work in any VC aside from GBA injects or NDS redirects? Seeing as they are still 3DS applications that just happen to emulate older systems.

And you can turn up dark filter on GBA injects, and use sono's ds/i scaling patcher to pick a darkened option if needed.

I too have this problem with a lot of electronics these days. All you have to do is get some black electrical tape, cut a little piece off and stick that sucker onto the light. Ahhhh eyes can relax :lol:

The worst is the red flashing LED when the battery is low.
It would be nice to have that nuisance be hacked away in Luma.
The bright LED light issue gets worse the older you get. My mom is 74 and she hates the blue light on her e-bike controls at night. I checked it and it's really bad indeed. You can barely see the illuminated road because your eyes are blinded by the blue LED. So I applied my tape solution. Never leave the house without tape.

    it's no worse than if you pirated
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    it's probably better, because not all keys on key sites are stolen

    plus piracy is not always an option

    DRMs are getting stronger these days
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    they bought their own game on a key site and checked where they came from and it turned out they were review copies he had given out by email to someone
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    *all* of them
  • NinStar @ NinStar:
    no storefront I'm aware of (at least on pc) requires the devs to pay for the keys they generate
  • NinStar @ NinStar:
    they don't lose money doing this, even if someone decide to chargeback
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    so that seems to be a pretty common thing, i kinda blame the dev for that one though as they were giving out like 5 keys to someone just because they asked for multiple copies for review for whatever reason and there were multiple people doing this. he should've seen the red flags
  • linuxares @ linuxares:
    @The Real Jdbye Yet devs tell US that they get charged possible charge backs? Its no idea we keep this up since I have to trust the devs more than key reseller sites.

  • linuxares @ linuxares:
    (the chargeback is a penalty fee from the Credit card company, apparently around 30$)
