Features:
Luma 10.2.1

Redshift custom screen filter (thanks to Sono):

  • Tweak screens individually (not possible for o2DS due to single screen hardware)
  • Dimming effect for additional brightness reduction
  • Much greater range of filter customisation
  • Reapplies saved filter on awaken from sleep
  • Automatic LED suppression when filter applied

Automatic cut to slot power when booted with DS/TWL game cartridge inserted:

  • This stops DS flashcarts from leeching power when not in use
  • You will need to force boot into DS game cartridge by using the CIA from here, with TWiLightMenu or reinsert the cartridge

Quick-Switchers sub menu:

  • Quick-Switch between your preferred filters/config for DS/i games (TwlBg) and GBA games (AgbBg, open_agb_firm, Open AGB Launcher)
  • TwlBg option displays ".cxi" files from "/luma/sysmodules/TwlBg" and persists selected file name to "/luma/sysmodules/twlbgName.txt"
  • Widescreen option displays ".cxi" files from "/luma/sysmodules/Widescreen" and persists selected file name to "/luma/sysmodules/widescreenName.txt"
  • AgbBg option displays ".cxi" files from "/luma/sysmodules/AgbBg" and persists selected file name to "/luma/sysmodules/agbbgName.txt"
  • Open_AGB option displays ".ini" files from "/3ds/open_agb_firm" and persists selected file name to "/3ds/open_agb_firm/configName.txt"
  • Works best with meaningful file names e.g. "redshiftWideMode.cxi", "pixelPerfect.cxi", "lowBrightness.ini"
  • Delete the .txt file when creating new TwlBg/AgbBg patches to avoid the persisted name being incorrect

Plugin loader:

  • All credit to Nanquitas and PabloMK7 and anyone else involved in the CTRPF project!
  • Not backwards compatible with .plg or old .3gx
  • Supports new CTRPF v0.6.0 and v0.7.0 .3GX format (header 3GX$0002) plugin
  • Default plugin available from CTRPF thread or Nanquitas' Playground announcements channel
  • "default.3gx" goes in "/luma/plugins" directory

Enhanced brightness adjustment interface:

  • Adjust brightness of top and bottom screens independently (not possible for o2DS due to single screen hardware)
  • Option to use hidden true maximum brightness (at your own risk?)
  • Option to use hidden true minimum brightness
  • Option to switch off bottom screen backlight entirely

Software volume control interface (thanks again to Sono):

  • Accessible from System Configuration sub menu
  • Change volume in 1/64 steps without using physical volume slider
  • Volume percentage now displayed in sub menus

Permanent brightness recalibration:

  • Recalibration is applied for 3DS, DS/i and GBA modes
  • Accessible from System Configuration sub menu
  • Edit the values behind the 5 selectable brightness levels
  • Changes are saved to NAND so use sparingly to avoid wearing out the memory
  • Upper limit of 172 is found in code so it is presumed to be safe but may reduce LCD lifespan

Misc/QoL:

  • Quick toggle LEDs from menus by pressing SELECT
  • New3DS clock/cache status visible on main menu
  • Menu rearrangement for quicker access to Wifi toggle
  • Allow Patches in the Home Menu e.g. place BetterBatteryColors hud_LZ.bin in /luma/titles/*YourRegionHomeMenuTitleId*/romfs
