    Doesn't look like it :( there hasn't been any commits since the initial release
    It's good we have a PoC but this port seems to be dead.

    I have stopped working on DeSmuME-NX, but I'm still working on a DS emulator. Since DeSmuME's source has been around for a long time, it's code base and commit history is pretty huge and working with it is more of a hassle than it's worth.

    Basically I have moved my efforts into continuing the development of MelonDS.

    That's wonderful news. Thanks for not giving up, and continuing to work on a solution for DS emulation.

    You're the man. ;)

    Yes, the first internal test version was actually in portrait mode.

    Do you have a repo for this MelonDS version yet?

    That is great news. Hopefully you can have hotkeys to switch between screen 1 & 2 at fullscreen.

    Since MelonDS is on hiatus, would that impact you trying to port MelonDS to Switch?

    When I run it on 4.1.0, it just freezes after "SoftRast Initialized with cores=4". It never brings up a ROM loading menu or anything.

    Try a different rom, expect to crash a lot and there also aren't saves.

    Could this potentially run any quicker in the near future or do we need to wait for proper GPU implementation?

    Would the Retroarch potentially run faster, slower?

    I added a portrait mode for fun, if anyone's interested. Just a quick little modification. Source is here, and I attached a compiled version to this post. I also disabled advanced memory timing, which the DeSmuME source claims is "reasonable to disable as a speed hack", but I haven't noticed any difference myself. I'm somewhat interested in porting some of the optimizations from the nds4droid project, specifically its JIT and/or threaded interpreter, but I won't have much time to do so for a while, and I realize MasterFeizz has already moved on to a melonDS port, so it probably isn't even worth the time. For now, I'll just leave this small update here so we can enjoy some "progress". ;)
