Widescreen patch (384x240 16:10)

You’re all done! Enjoy your DS games in widescreen!
NOTE1: Every game/app in DS(i) mode will run in widescreen, even the games that aren’t compatible with widescreen. For this to be fixed so only the widescreen-compatible games run in widescreen, wait for RTCom-activated widescreen to be released.
NOTE2: Do not hold START or SELECT when launching TWLMenu++, if you don’t want widescreen to look glitched. If you don’t see the screen aspect ratio setting, wait for RTCom-activated widescreen to be released.
Not every game is widescreen compatible. We have created a list of games with widescreen
