    Oh I already have TwiMenu working already, thanks. I assume the upscaling stuff is in those links, will have a dig.

    I am having a weird issue with TwiMenu though. I have my rips in a folder, but not all of them appear. I have to press R to find these titles, and there is no file setup for me to go back from this menu, anyone experienced this? Also some of my ap patched rips are saying they're not ap patched...

    There's only widescreen steps.
    Press L?
    TWiLight Menu++ now has built-in AP-patches, so you no longer need patched ROMs.
    Update TWiLight Menu++, if you haven't done so yet.

    I can't seem to unpack the twl.firm file with firmtool, i followed the tutorial, i installed python, added path etc.... After that once i try to unpack or open firmtool, the cmd window just shuts off after a second

    Don't directly run the exe, you have to run the specific command in a command prompt window. It's a command line-based exe, so as soon as it stops running (which is almost immediately if you don't provide any arguments) windows closes the output window.

    Don't. Dump it as a .firm from GM9, and you'll be fine.

    Place the .firm next to the exe.
    Deselect everything in the folder by clicking on an empty space in the folder.
    SHIFT-RIGHTCLICK on an empty space in the folder, and select "Open command prompt here" or "Open PowerShell here".
    Without quotes, run "move .firm section0.bin", then ".\mkpatch_b asd 1010".
    It should output a lot of garbage. Because you have the command prompt still open, you can screenshot it.

    @moke_2140 The problem is hidden in the image you posted, did you extract mkpatch to another directory than the firmtool one?

    It says at the bottom, "Patched TwlBg, ready to use". If you look, there is a TwlBg.cxi file created in the folder. Copy that to /luma/sysmodules/ on your 3DS's SDCard. If the sysmodules folder doesn't exist, create it. Also don't forget to enable game patching and module loading in Luma config (turn off your 3DS, and hold SELECT and press the power button).

    Hex editing is for manual patching only. The patcher exe just requires a decrypted dump from G9 (preferably exefs.bin or .firm, but the decrypted .app also works).

    comparison.

    for me it still looks way better on my dsi xl (right picture) than on my 2ds xl (left picture) with the patch applied.
    the colors are washed out on the 3ds, maybe the dsi xl's screens are just better quality?
