The 3DS has a touchpad that is difficult to emulate, the best way to use it is with a mouse connected.

Libretro core can also be set to use the right joystick for the touchpad screen.

Specific System Information

Custom Textures

It is possible to launch Custom Texture packs with the Citra standalone Emulator.

The texture pack needs to be placed in the \emulators\citra\User\Load\Textures\<gameID> folder, example for Super Mario 3D Land:

When using the libretro core, textures must be placed in:

\saves\3ds\citra\Load\Textures\<gameID>

The name of the custom texture folder can be found by right-clicking on the game in the emulator and selecting "Open Custom Texture Location".

Once the custom texture pack is correctly named and placed, activate the CUSTOM TEXTURES setting.
