first_imgOne of the best parts about Nintendo’s 3DS is how many of Nintendo’s back catalog games it is able to play. Of course the 3DS can handle DS cartridges, but it is also able to play Game Boy Advance (GBA) games that are downloaded from the Nintendo eShop. A number of people became a lot lot more familiar with Nintendo’s older games when the company gave 3DS Ambassadors (people who bought the 3DS early) 10 free NES games and 10 free GBA games.Now, all those games are available but there is a problem. The 3DS uses modern hardware, including a high resolution display. This means that older games, especially those from the GBA, don’t look great. Basically, the 3DS’ 400×240 display is a bit much for the 240×160 GBA games so they have to be interpolated (you know, image scaling) to take up more room. This means that the wonderful original art is up-res’ed into a jaggy mess. Luckily there is something you can do about it.In order to play games at their native resolution — this works for GBA and DS games — you simply need to follow these instructions:Find the game on your 3DS’ home screen and hold Select (or Start)Press “A” to load the game. Keep holding Select (or Start) until the game is done loadingWhen the game is finished loading, let go and play.That’s it — you press and hold Select and load the game! You’ll be greeted with a tiny, but crisp version of your GBA game. This might not be something you can play for long stretches of time, because the image on-screen is quite tiny, but you’ll at least be able to see the original art without the blurring and fading off interpolation.It’s been pointed out that the GBA games have other issues, like poor sound and sleep mode not working when playing them, but at least you can do something about the graphics.via 1uplast_img read more
