    is it possible that the Cia patcher doesn't work on my console? I've tried applying it multiple times but I don't see a difference

    Do you have patching enabled in Luma (hold select when powering on: third option: 'Enable loading external FIRMS and modules' should have (x) by it rather than ( ) )? It's possible the patch was created, but isn't having an effect because it's not being loaded by Luma.

    I think the source of this trouble is this: When Luma is updated to a new version, it launches itself during startup, once, for the first time after the update, with a settings screen, where ALL options are unchecked. If you skip that screen, tons of homebrew stuff doesn't work properly. It's a problem. I know which options to check off, but I'm sure a lot of people just skip through it. I would say that line 2 (game patching) and 3 (show NAND) should be enabled by default. I also have line 1 enabled (external firms).

    Does the cia patcher do widescreen or only the filters?

    The cia one only has filters. The exe only has patches. Merging the two requires extra patches, so I haven't done it yet :/

    Yes, I'm using Linux, and I even compile the patcher in wine.

    Don't have a PC atm, but saw on the previous page I may be able to upres DS games without one, straight from my 3DS? I'm not interested in widescreen, just the upres, is it possible with just my 3DS?

    Upscaling is NOT possible because that would require changing the DS "GPU" silicon itself. The resolution will always be 256x192.

    If you mean the upscale filters (which do "magic" to make the upscaled image look more sharp than the original) then only the patcher cia can do that.

    The coding on the right side of the screen is removed to achieve the stretching effect, and the picture quality is not optimized.
