    I wasn't saying to make the change to Lakka altogether just to play GC/Wii.
    What I meant is that Dolphin running well on Lakka Switch is proof that Dolphin can run at good speeds on HOS with the proper libraries ported over to HOS Homebrew (Vulkan, nvdec), meaning it is fully possible to have a proper Dolphin build on HOS later on, if someone decides to take on the task of porting over Vulkan to libnx

    Wasn't there someone who said something about doing that at one point, I thought? Porting Vulkan to Horizon, that is.

    I haven't done much with hacking my Switch in a while. Having to work a job that eats up, like, 12 hours of my day when you factor in travel back and forth will do that to your knowledge of the Switch hacking scene.

    Well, Yes of course I was aware of the stance of Wii emulation. I just am not one for N64 or even Gamecube emulation, The Wii was the first console I was ever introduced to as a little kid. So the console and the games hold a very special place in my heart. I would love to be able to inject my own backups and possibly play them as NSPs from the Home Menu (which would be a dream) but I get it there is an obscene amount of code behind this and I'm sure there is going to be legal and moral implications along the way. I would just love to see it happen.

    LOL sorry but what moral implications are you referring to? Morals have never stopped anyone from making an emulator that I've ever heard of. It's the other reasons.

    I'd imagine we could get a decent list of full speed games in lakka/ubuntu if we could set it to run at 30fps (frame skip maybe? Like how Sunshine is locked to 30).

    What you are talking about sounds amazing though.

    Also, @Silent_Gunner, use Ubuntu if you want docked and all those goodies while emulating! Though there aren't that many GC games that run full speed on either lakka or ubuntu.. You might get lucky and some of your favorites work, worth a shot maybe. Honestly the only reason I still have it installed is for the rare chance I crave Timesplitters 2 while away from a PC. I wish Metal Gear was at a playable speed.

    Edit: if you want me to test some games in ubuntu and the Ishirka dolphin fork, pm me!

    I actually already tried it a year ago, and while it's better now in terms of actually having sleep mode and a couple of other things that have been added to it, the amount of configuration work I had to do to get it to where it was "perfect" was a big problem then, but at least I had a 1080p TV max. Now, I have a 4K TV, and every time I've plugged it in using it it slows down a little too much for me to feel like using it every day on the Switch like I was.

    It also doesn't help that, thanks to me being in debt and the COVID lockdowns that, aside from trips to the bathroom, I haven't had much of a reason to take my Switch, be it the hacked or the Mariko one, out of the dock anywhere, and that it hasn't been until recently that my hacked Switch was running without one of those battery packs are strapped to its back to keep the battery lasting long enough while in portable mode to be more practical as a handheld.

    so can someone spell it out straight for me? IS injection/ Emulation possible or not? if so why?

    but if so then this is my response



    (that was an attempt at me being funny, twas purely satirical)

    As far as I know injection should one day be possible for GC and N64 using these emulators, but not for Wii.

    Because the N64 and GC ones are full emulators, while the Wii one requires CPU code to be statically recompiled beforehand.

    Now, whether @m4xw wants to go through the trouble of creating one is an entirely different story...

    great the one I actually care about isn't possible. There's no remiance of the recompiler or a way to make a recompiler that will recompile PowerPC of ARM. I mean that last option sounds feasible but sounds like a hell of a alot of work. but I mean come on playing Wii Sports on the switch or any other favorite childhood game sounds pretty fun doesnt it?

    If you don't give yourself the task of reading the thread, google it.

    No, I've read the thread it just broke up in small pieces so I wanted to ask the people who know a thing or two. I also wanted to inject my casual satire in there.

    Just to play Wii Sports? How about Metroid Prime Trilogy? The many lightgun game ports? SMG2? Skyward Sword? Both No More Heroes? The good Wiiware games? I could go on with games that I'd rather play than Wii Sports.

    Well shit, I bought a GC Adapter to play Sunshine with an OG GC controller (as god intended) but turns out the Switch doesn't allow/support remapping the inputs. I always knew I wouldn't be able to use the GC analog triggers (as analog) but I thought at least I'd be able to remap Sunshine default Switch inputs to match the GC inputs :/
    I've heard Syscon and Hidmitm has some sort of button remapping? has anyone with a GC Adapter successfully remapped the buttons correctly?
    Thanks.

    Well, I used the GC controller on Super Mario Sunshine in 3D All-Stars on a modded Switch.

    The analog triggers, as far as I remember, worked completely fine.

    But not in the unmodded one of course...

    The triggers do work.. but they are not recognised as analog like on GC and for me the button layout is all wrong, both B and A are set as jump for example.
