Contrary to the PSVita, the 3DS’ homebrew haydays have been over for a pretty long time but noteworthy releases still drop from time to time. One of these releases was Twilight Menu++ 9.0.0 some days ago which came with Widescreen support (lets you play DS games in Widescreen (16:10) thus filling up the 3DS’ upper screen).
Unfortunately, this feature wasn’t useable since TWL Patcher was required and that wasn’t out then. That finally changed on Sunday as Sono released his patcher which can enable Widescreen mode by following a short tutorial on a 64-Bit Windows PC. You can grab TWLPatcher from this link and follow the instructions found here to use it on your console!
Many DS games are a lot of fun but playing them in Widescreen on your 3DS makes them even better!
On the other hand, TWiLight Menu++ received an update to version 9.0.4 yesterday and this brings along:
- Support for 202 Widescreen Mode games
- Combined with version 9.0.3, titles like Final Fantasy IV, Pokemon Platinum and Assassin’s Creed II – Discovery are now supported
- Sanity checks relating to Widescreen mode have been added which make sure that a working copy of ‘TwlBg.cxi’ is present in “sd:/luma/sysmodule” and whether it’s backed up
- Some small bug fixes having to do with file copying
To grab TWiLight Menu++ 9.0.4 and enjoy DS games in Widescreen, check out this link to grab and install it. Do note that updating via TWiLight Updater doesn’t work as of right now so you must update your binaries manually!
