Release notes.


  • Deltabeard - For his work on ctrmus which was the original foundation for this application as LimePlayer3DS initally started out as a fork of ctrmus.
  • devkitPro - For providing amazing, easy to use, toolchains that without, this application would have never existed.
  • Astronautlevel & LiquidFernir (and the Anemone3DS team) - For their work on Anemone3DS which helped quite a bit when it came to starting with citro2d graphics, and they were very helpful in general.
  • Flagbrew - The GUI code is heavilly based on PKSM’s GUI code.
  • Most of the icons under gfx are from the site icons8.com and are licensed under the CC-BY-NC-SA

Special Thanks:

  • The Easyrpg Team - For inspiring this application.
  • smealum, fincs, WinterMute, and devkitPro contributors - For making/maintaining documentation and examples for libctru and citro2d/3d which is incredibly helpfull when working on this project.
  • Testers - For testing, providing feedback, and reporting bugs.
