    I saw people much earlier in this thread posting results though with games that looked like they were pulling that off games like bw2 and hgss

    Problem is, horizontal filtering isn't applied.

    Hey @Sono I have one, probably stupid, question.

    Are filters used on START+SELECT DS 1:1 mode? Does TWPatcher filters make any difference in that mode? Since there's no scaling I'm not sure.

    Non-wide-GPU filters, of course.

    I think I accidentally left code in the 2020/09/03 experimental (man, I rushed this very hard) which makes your 3DS turn off with a really loud pop noise if a write happens while holding X. If you don't hold X, it will not touch the WiFi flash, and the pop will not happen.

    It is possible, I just didn't got around to making it yet, because it requires extra storage and custom scale filters, both of which are not available. I basically have to remake each scale filter from scratch for widescreen, which is no good, considering how bad I am at math.

    There is an issue where when using the GPU patch, START/SELECT mode doesn't work because it just breaks the image, and it just looks like a pixelated mess where all pixels have relocated themselves to random places.

    Sadly you have to disable the GPU patch if you want to use 1:1 mode. There is no way around this due to how many things this patches just to get the scrapped GPU scale mode working.

    Well, just tried with the 20200903 build, enabled anti-wear patch and rtcom. Booted Resident Evil DS from a cart while holding X, game booted just fine, nothing unusual. Did the same with TwilightMenu++ and it booted like usual, No screen flash or loud pop or shutdown.

    The same result by booting while holding start (for 1:1) and X, the screen is still properly calibrated and everything works just fine, shouldn't it trigger it in this case?

    Tried booting while holding start and not holding X and the calibration was messed up. I guess these results mean you actually removed the "testing" code from the build and anti-wear is working as intended (or should I try this "feature" without anti-wear enabled?).

    EDIT: just tried without the patch and also no loud pop. I suppose im leaving it enabled just to be safe for the time being. (I'm on a New 3DS XL, if that makes a difference, btw)

    Since you had touch issues and no pop, that means I have removed it since then.

    I'm also using a new3DSXL and a 2DS.

    That's weird. Everyone else says that the 2020/09/03 build broke GPU + widescreen combo.

    Neither. Main build is outdated, experimental is a piece of :hateit:

    Will? Yes, definitely.
    When? Absolutely no idea.

    I personally thing that it's incredible that TWPatch even exists and works. I wonder, how did you even do it?

    Hey, just wanted to let you know that I tried this out and it works great. Been playing DQ6 for about a week with this filter, it makes a huge difference.

    What's planned for future updates? It works great already so I'm curious what you want to improve.

    What would be the best combo currently? GPU upscaling + which filter?

    It's either GPU upscaling or using a filter.
