    Are there any unofficial or official retroarch cores for switch?

    Not for HOS. You can try playing GC/Wii games in lakka/linux/android on switch, but they run like crap everywhere (well, some of them run fine with full OC, but not many).

    Nope. If you want to play Gamecube games, get a Wii or Wii U. There will never be official Gamecube emulation on the Switch.

    I mean that is one game out of the entire Gamecube library spanning 100s of titles and it was custom made by Nintendo so does it really count?

    Don't buy the crap that "gamecube is impossible on the switch". It probably won't happen because it would be a ton of effort, but it's definitely possible.

    Yeah. I'm mainly talking about horizon. I'm sure the lakka one could be massively improved too.

    Chances are Nintendo will “remaster” a bunch more games using the GC emu.

    ...but hopefully the method will be cracked and we can try our own :ninja:

    I've been going through my entire switch collection without walkthroughs, and speaking of gamecube, I've been stuck on the "first"? yoshi shine in sunshine for over seven hours with the 3d all star collection. I keep coming back to it, being unable to find yoshi despite the level saying he's in there. lol

    might need more than one game to hex compare them. that might've been the problem since it's three games, three different emulators.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    what I'd like is for Nintendo to offer symphonia at some point (if possible). it's possible that it's similar to the ps4 where there might need be a need for more than one emulator. the ps2 emulator on the ps4 uses rogue galaxy and jak and daxter from what I remember. both emulators are the most robust, so if a game doesn't work with one, you can try the other. you can also use config and lua to patch certain graphical or other issues, but they usually have to be minor to medium issues. major issues would probably require a new emulator. who knows if nintendo just made the emulator perfect for 3d all stars alone or if they have other intentions. anyway, imo, symphonia and tales of destiny 2 (the JP one) are the two best tales of games. vesperia and abyss are also quite good.

    lol :rofl2:

    I got so far with it and really hated the revised feel of the controls. BUT, since the new update I plan to try playing the rest with a wired GC pad.

    I have installed Android, Ubuntu and Horizon on my SD. I was testing dolphin on Ubuntu and Android, and you can actually play GC and Wii games on this way. Is not the same, but works, and actually works better than playing on lakka.

    there's an update that can use a gc controller? I know I would sometimes get confused with the water nozzle standing or moving being different buttons.

    Yeah that was pretty damned odd.

    Apparently latest update added inverted controls and original analog controller support :)

    Tbh plenty of gamecube run fullspeed at 1700 cpu, which is the chips standard clock speed. It is underclocked in horizon to get more battery life from the switch.

    only the smash controllers, I assume?

    I have the entire collection:

    I'll have to see if my system updated it.
