    I’m not sure exFAT is the cause. I use exFAT and despite the warnings I’ve not had a single issue.

    If worse comes to the worst, maybe the config can be edited manually.

    PCSX has arrived, quick port by @lifajucejo I sneaked it into the current nightlies.

    Its officially supported, but don't annoy me with beetle-psx!
    Best Settings:
    Settings->Drivers Audio = switch_thread (if your havent already, then Exit RA and start again!!)
    Settings->Audio->Audio latency = 150
    Make sure Video threaded is on!

    To get 60 in more demanding Titles, go Quick Menu->Options frameskip = 1

    This will make it a bit choppy, but audio is clear! Just play around!
    Alternatively: Disabling dithering does a lot

    Currently you should save this Config with "VSYNC: ON", because else you get crazy fuzz in Handheld (even on the menu).
    A workaround right now is starting the core with VSYNC on, then TURN IT OFF while its running for performance!
    The fuzz doesnt go away if you started the Core with VSYNC off.

    The stable builds have been updated to Support this core!

    Aye I’ve seen reports of issues. I wonder why it’s been fine for me, though.

    I've yet to encounter any issues with Retroarch and exfat, but people definitely seem to have trouble with it occasionally.

    Is there an update in the app or do we just install over the old version?

    Just to be clear, though, there haven't been any updates to the "All-in-one" package since it was first released via that Google Drive link, correct? I've tried to figure out if there has been, but I've been unsuccessful.

    Not to belabor the point, but I remember when the Google Drive All in One package was first linked at this URL:

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1H3mObdTZqzQcoPCkOxqQyX10cMCrD-kS/view (from the OP)

    I'm curious if the contents of that download have been updated since then (and thus, I should re-download and update). I don't know if it's relevant, but when I check the version within the app, it reports as .97

    Thanks as always!

    Thanks, will try it when i get home. Only retroarch experience I've had was on iOS on my old jailbroken iPhone5. Just trying to figure out if theres any differences from that OS to the switch.
