0x200 0x400 ?


Bit Description
0 ABL on
8 ?
9 ?

Bits 8 and 9 control dither.

Fill ColorEdit

Bit Description
7-0 Red component intensity
15-8 Green component intensity
23-16 Blue component intensity
24 Enable

When the enable bit is set, the specified solid color is displayed on the LCD instead of the framebuffer.

ABL AreaEdit

Offset Description
0x00 X begin
0x04 X end
0x08 Y begin
0x0C Y end

The values refer to 90° clockwise rotated screens.

Backlight LevelEdit

Bit Description
9-0 Backlight PWM duty on (0 = off)

Backlight IntervalEdit

Bit Description
9-0 Backlight PWM Interval, minus 1
16 Enable LCD (0 = disabled, 1 = enabled).
17 RS on (?)
18 ?

On old 2DS, disabling the top LCD does nothing, disabling the bottom LCD affects both screens. Setting bit 18 makes the screen darker.
