    Vulkan (at least on Ubuntu and Lakka) performs better than OpenGL

    Can you please link to the version of dolphin you are using. When I was using the playstore version it crashed upon launching the app after the first launch.

    Thanks, this build works for me!
    This build has the same problem as the playstore build.

    You're welcome! Dolphin nightlies can be finicky. Be careful with that though my switch cranks up the heat pretty quickly.

    Were you able to get the joycons to work with it? I got the buttons to work but cant seem to get the control sticks to work.

    Anyone know if it's possible to get games like Pocket Camp, Dr. Mario World, and FE Heroes working?

    This works so good for a first release! Got to play GTA for over a hour now, really awesome. To bad the casino functions are disabled through Geforce now. Looking forward to the updates.

    [Edit] This is through Geforce Now, so without my desktop. Haven't tried Moonlight yet.

    Android Dolphin doesn't really run any better if that is what you were asking. Otherwise its a phone OS vs a computer OS, as different as night and day.

    Yes it's what i would to know. Not dolphin in particular but it's a good reference standard.
    Thanks a lot, i'll install L4T.

    Too add to this, just note that using Android gives you the perks of the games that are playable on it. I got Metal Gear Rising Revengeance up and running last night, which i couldnt do on L4T
