    wait for the switch to be able to run homebrew first, it doesn't seem too far away right now. anyone interested can then port retroarch

    I have a feeling switch sales will increase when retroarch gets ported

    Oh, guess is cool.

    Now if it was genesis plus gx to switch or SNES9X and stuff with msu1 support, I be more excited. :P

    Gonna have to agree on LibretroRetro's stance on 3.0.0 being the only exploitable firmware and how limiting it would be to justify a RA port. If RA can be ported and run on many firmware versions, I'm all for it.

    @ShadowOne333 @ploggy Sounds like the PSX dynarec was a bust, seems that the one behind it turned tail and fled. Why am I not surprised? :angry: Why on earth did he just abandon it?

    Also 3.0.0 being the only exploitable version, yeah, I may have to pass.

    Daeken was the guy that worked on the first dynarec..

    The dynarec bounty is still being worked on dont worry ;)

    Also its worth getting Retroarch worked on as soon as possible imo. That way when a new hack comes out for newer Firmwares its better to have a Retroarch port ready made than have to start from there..

    Provided 4.x.x is exploitable, that part seems uncertain or unclear, not gonna get my hopes up just to be safe. I'm happy at seeing the potentiality, but as far as what will be vulnerable for Switch firmware, not holding my breath :P

    I want to believe, I just don't want this to be another PS3 3.55 situation, and I really don't want to spend 300 dollars on a homebrew machine. I shouldn't have to, you know?

    Their concern seems to be about the size of a potential audience as, from general indication, the audience on 3.0.0 or in general compromised hardware is paltry at best (to the point where I didn't even see Pokken make a blip on the radar on usual channels I'd have expected when full Rohan went live and the new broke, suggesting that the general interest or awareness is very low). It would be a good investment for the future but with no timetable on such a thing and a very small audience to work with, it appears that some part of the crew finds it a poor investment of time at the moment.

    Daekan retiring probably also dampers spirits.

    One big doorway does possibly remain with plutoo's unknown kernel exploit as we have no clear confirmation on its fw but right now he's using that kernel exploit to help build userland tools, so who knows when he'd release it or if he even will.

    The switch was a limited 300 dollar item, people will be able to get them now that the holiday rush is happening.

    A Switch in and of itself isn't going to be useful for them and is besides the point, look at the discussion quoted. They need and their audience needs specifically 3.0.0 for the current homebrew access onto which RA would be ported.

    And Switches entering the market this holiday are't going to be 3.0.0.

    I work retail and look at the systems on a daily basis and all of our recent (past 3 days) stock is 2.3.0-3.0.0 I've only seen 3 systems on 3.0.1 and who's to say more flaws are not found over time.
