    :rofl:Will it be possible to have a HQ4x filter like Desmume, Drastic and Citra (It doesn't use than still, some sharp ranger and anti-aliasing) use available for the 3DS? The poopy Anti-Aliasing of 3D and 2D (for 2DS) and DSi+DS Cart emulation would look better than those jaggies! HQ4x clears the jagged lines and smooths them out for a better look. I could be done via NTR overlay plugin, I suppose. This would not cause any performance drops cause it is very light compared to MSAA 8X of GTX 1080. Ha Ha :ha::rofl2: :yaynds::yay3ds:

    It cannot be done, for two simple reason : the 3DS boots in TWL_FIRM in DS games, so it basically becomes a DSi. So you can't modify anything. Oh, and how the hell would you use a 4x filter? You can't increase the 3DS's screen res from nowhere with software...

    Gambia, The
    cut your panel of and insert a new one. then you can try to upscale something.
    for short. this is a dumb question, you can't upscale a screen to more then its actual resolution.

    Eh, maybe with a very heavily modified twl_firm. That might require sighax.

    Yeah! You are Right! It would require a deep modification of the TWL Firm.
