    It installs in a location which doesn't affect the system. You can do some research.

    Alternatively, you can get a free version of a virtual machine software, and just use a Windows VM.

    Dunno if this can ever be implemented in TWPatch but I have to say I've been pretty impressed with Retroarch scale2x video filter + bilinear interpolation on 3DS. Gameboy/ Gear, GBA and even Master System, which has a similar resolution to NDS, look pretty good. Sometimes there's a bit of curvey distortion but shapes tend to be very well defined without appearing either pixelalted or blurry, and the algorithm is very light on processing power. I don't know whether this RTC research can open up things like this that go well beyond the existing scaling matricies but I thought I'd mention it.

    I looked at scale2x, and it seems to be possible, but only if ARM11 is constantly calculating each pixel, which definitely creates a lot of graphical glitches (it makes the screen scroll upwards like a badly synchronized CRT TV).

    If you're willing to ditch EVERYTHING just to have scale2x then it's possible. It would just take a lot of time to disable DMPGL (it's littered all over the code, thus it's hard to get rid of or patch), and make sure to only calculate pixels when it has fully arrived to prevent black pixels from appearing and causing screen tear.

    Try Normal2x.filt, it makes gbc games look sharp without those glitches you are describing.

    Normal2x is more like the default "crispy" GBA scaling in that its kind of pixellated. Its not bad for GB/GBA but it doesn't seem to help much for Master System and therefore theoretically NDS. The other issue is that its more CPU intensive and under pressure it can't keep up with vsync, but that's mostly a Retroarch issue.

    is there a way to do this on the 3DS itself without a computer? I can transfer files to it with my phone via ftp but I don't have a computer. (I may have asked this before but I can't remember if I did so I don't think I got an answer, thanks in advance!)

    I haven't touched my 3DS in months, I see that there's a computer-based version of this now. What is the benefit of that, if I don't particularly care for Widescreen hacks? Should I just continue to use this patcher for sharpening, or should I update to the computer-based version?

    The computer patcher is only for widescreen at this time. In fact it makes the scaling otherwise somewhat worse. Only use if you want widescreen, stick to the 3DS patcher if you just want different scaling options within the usual 4:3 aspect ratio.

    It still doesn't work. Also, I want to talk in TWL Mode Hacking Discord because it's more convenient please. :)

    If you only need widescreen then use 1100, or if you also want it to be tinted red (for blue light filter) then use 1101.

    hi everyone i'm new, forgive me for my poor english, i wanted to know if it was possible to apply the twlpatch special filters with widescreen effects, because every time i do the widescreen procedure it resets the setting to the original ones. Thanks for everything

    It's not possible yet. The matrix on the X axis is cleared because I didn't implement widescreen scale matrixes yet, and also because it requires extra patching due to the different scale divisors for the X and Y axises.

    Put a "pause" on a new line in the bat and read why it doesn't create it.
