Video settings have gotten more complicated in the recent years. To be more precise, since HD TVs started to appear, there’s been more settings to configure.
The easiest part to configure is the resolution, as that’s pretty much done automatically and in the right way. The real confusion comes with another setting in the video, the RGB Range. Setting this part correctly is as important as the resolution, specially if you are going to take screenshots, record video, or stream. It’s even more important if you’re going to do any kind of graphic comparison.

When I started with the redesign of Makendou Central, I decided to do another quick Google search to see if there’s anything new to find about the franchise. Mainly, I browsed to see if there was any new fan art to be included in the gallery section that was about to open.
I did find a few new things but the most interesting one was this Japanese site that included cheat codes for many games (including a few for the original Makeruna! Makendou). And a lot of them seem to be previously unknown.
I’ve translated the two codes that were available for Makeruna! Makendou and shared them below.

When version 2.0 was released for Mario Tennis Aces, I noticed that Nintendo’s support article on how to update the game (which includes the changelog) also mentioned about not being able to play in LAN mode with users who had an older version. Since I didn’t remember anyone mentioning the code for LAN Mode in Aces, I tried to find it on Nintendo’s support section.
To my surprise, I didn’t find any article about that. The only articles I found where about all the other games where the info has already been shared through other means and it’s well known that these modes exist. But considering that the changelog article mentions about a LAN Mode and hoping that it isn’t just a mistake, I decided to search for the code that triggers it.
After trying pressing several buttons that are used in the other games’ code, I eventually got to trigger the option to play in LAN.
So, for anyone looking for it, here’s the code to enable LAN Mode in Mario Tennis Aces:
Hold Left Stick and then press L and R at the same time.
The L and R buttons don’t need to start being pressed at the same time, just that, at one point, they are held down at the same time.
Btw, the code also works in Swing Mode.
And just in case, here’s the code again but in a different format.
(While holding Left Stick) L + R
Long ago, I bought Mega Man X5 for PC (Windows) through Trygames since I didn’t own a PlayStation. And of course, back then, everything worked perfectly fine. Today, though, that copy of Mega Man X5 is now permanently locked since Trygames is dead.
