    Hello gbatemp members.

    I read a lot of gbatemp and I have seem some really cool homebrew but I still don't know all of it. I am just looking to know about some cool/good homebrew I can use. Even if it's popular I don't care. Just post what is it and what it does.

    Thank you.

    Thank You for your help.

    • BroseNX Web browser (doesn't work on applet mode).
    • Checkpoint Save files back-up/restoration manager.

    ^^^ Thats a good list. I'll just add a few others.

    -Simple Mod Manager. It lets you.. manage mods.
    -OpenMW - Play Morrowind on switch. Takes a bit of setting up but it's awesome.
    -PPSSPP - for emulating psp games, seems to run better than Retroarch.
    -Sys-clk - overclock your switch. Especially needed if using ReverseNX. Can also underclock less graphics intense games to get more battery life.
    -Half-Life - Half-life and the 2 expansions all work great on switch!

    If you want to use online homebrew, I use the exosphere.ini edit to remove the switch Serial Number. Otherwise use Incognito (RCM version I think). You should absolutely do this if you are going to use Tinfoil's online downloader (HBG or JITS). Although it's probably not needed if already banned.

    I've been using L4T Ubuntu to play TimeSplitters 2 at solid 60fps. None of the other games I've tried run quite that good. Mario Sunshine runs ~75% speed after leaving the tutorial area, for example.

    PS: I'd also suggest checking out the tags in this homebrew section. "Release" and "WIP" should help you find almost every homebrew.

    It would be nice to add that for ReverseNX-RT you need SaltyNX installed. ;)

    Sound kind of passive-aggressive to me but yeah you're right, my bad. I took that list as a curated one, which it isn't. Would be nice to add a curated section to it or create a new list for that specifically.

    On topic: I love the Caesar III port. Satisfies my itch for city-building!

    I guess this thread can kind of become a list like you mention. Then someone with Wiki access can edit it in. (I applied for wiki editing rights last week but haven't heard back yet)

    Props for mentioning Caesar III, I totally missed that one! I got that itch a few days ago and reinstalled SimCity 2000 and 3000 (PC), but I'll try out Caesar!

    Yeah that sounds like a great idea! I'm a little worried, considering it's very subjective what's the "best homebrew" but i suppose it would serve as a good starting point for sure!

    And glad i could help you out there! I know that feeling all too well haha! Some Caesar III systems are pretty counterintuitive to me though, so reading up on the mechanics might be required every now and then.
