    Hi,

    I was just using the DSTwo Supercard to go back down memory lane for a quick thrash on SM64DS but I have noticed, how do you get a full screen using on the 3DSXL cause it cuts the top screen down on a bit on the XL. Anyone know how? Thanks.

    Hold the Start and Select buttons and then while holding, launch the game by hitting A or tapping the icon

    Working fine for me. Make sure you press the R button first(and give it like 2 sec) then keeping it pressed start the game with A

    I can get a smaller screen by holding start or Select and click on Alex Rider on home screen but cannot make it bigger?

    110% m8 wont work for me remember I'm using it with 4.3.0FW not the latest also using V1.11FW DSTwo?

    ugh I don't get what is the issue. Is your firmware 9.x or maybe it because I am using retail cartridge

    I remember when I used it on a 3ds I couldn't get the screen also bigger but went smaller.
    That is why dsi xl is the best for this and better sound quality.

    Could you test Mario 64DS for me see if it works with you please?. So your using a 3DSXL with a DSTwo card and your just holding the R button (Camera Button) and then press A to start the game? What software are you using to run DS roms?

    Oh no sorry friend I don't own DSTwo I used a retail cartridge on 9.x firmware. I thought alteast the resizing function would be same.
    Other than that yes I did what you said. Since you are on lower firmware instead of R button you can even try Sel button you never know

    There are two screen modes - one is scaled up to the 3DS screen's height (320x240, scaled from 256x192), the other is 1:1 (native 256x192). You can't go "full" screen (400x240), the 3DS has a different aspect ratio, the game will always either have columns on the side (upscaled mode) or it will be letterboxed (1:1 mode).

    If you mean the black bars on the side, no way to get rid of those (and even if stretching was possible, it would look absolutely awful).

    It's way too thin for people with actual human-sized hands (like me), I swear, the ergonomics of the 3DS/XL are not comfortable for anyone. :rofl2:
