    Oh what?
    Are we talking about a port of Doom (1993) to the Switch already?
    Damn that sounds sexy af.

    So? I stated exactly that. Where's your problem with that? Did you think I was being ironic or something?

    Btw, it was about game devs stopping releasing games, which is not entirely the same as hardware sales. But we still share a point here.

    Same boat.
    I run Ubuntu through VirtualBox, got the clang-5.0 build tools installed but Mephisto fatal asserts when trying to run ctu against an nso I built from switch_examples (simple.nso)
    Guess I will have to wait until kgsws publishes something a little easier to follow.

    yep tried to run a libtransistor nro and an nso (win10 Linux Subsystem) Assertion `exists(lfn)' failed.

    Oh my this is such a huge thing.
    At least for me :lol:
    Can't call a system a gaming device without it running Doom first. xD
    With Doom being ported, I can assume the libraries and other stuff used for the port would come in handy for other homebrew devs :)

    gosh I'm getting mad at Mephisto if it'll continue throwing that fatal assertion error.

    Exactly same error I'm getting (in the loadNso call).

    OK, I got something out (avoided the assert and a pipe of a load of debug) with the following command instead of setting up a load.meph file:

    ./Mephisto/ctu --load-nso ./switch_examples/templates/simple/simple.nso

    Doom'16 is better than Doom'93. ;)

    A surprisingly solid port on the Switch, been enjoying it on my off-hours.

    I've been wanting to get it for the Switch actually, but two things are keeping me from doing it:
    1. The price point (full price for an almost 2 year old game is quite a lot for me)
    2. I still don't know nor have confirmation on what system update does it ask for the Switch.
    I wouldn't care about the price point if I know the game is playable on 3.0 or below, because I won't sacrifice homebrew for just one game :lol:

    Yeah, but now it will have a version that runs above 30fps.
