Hey there people from GBATemp, doing great?

You see, I have an original Switch here never before hacked or anything, but, with the crescent releases on the emulation scene for the console, I get the interest of knowing more for even possibly doing something on my console in the future just for playing some games

But, to see if it worths it a shot, would like to ask you guys directly the current status of some specific games I would like to play on the console, can you guys help me out? These are the ones:

1 - Perfect Dark (n64) - would like to know if it´s possible to run multiplayer on a good and playable framerate, with multiple GC controllers via adapter
2 - Shenmue (DC) - would like to know if it´s already playable for the entire campaign
3 - Marvel vs Capcom 2 (DC) - again, would like to know if it´s already playable and able to do versus with two GC controllers

Sorry for taking your time, it´s just that I´m not that wise on the switch emulation scene and would like to know things better before risking a step into that direction, since these are the only few games I miss in my library (my DC burned out with time and my 64 have energy issues)

Thanks again for the attention! ^^

I can only answer 3 since I have not beaten Shenmue completely on Switch (although it works) Huge Graphical errors make MvC2 unplayable. It might be playable in Lakka though.

Quite a lot of games run full speed in Reicast HOS (native switch OS), but its developement hasn't been updated since first announcement and release several months ago. And your particular games are not quite playeable in HOS. Shenmue has texture artifacs and slowdowns, MvC2 has sprite texture issues (all characters are a pixelated mass, but it runs well tho). But they both run perfectly fine in Lakka... So for Dreamcast emulation Lakka is the way to go for now. Haven't played perfect dark, but n64 emulation is in a pretty good shape rn in both lakka and HOS, so i would assume it's very playable.

Many thanks for the info, will definetely try to research more on the Lakka side of things ;)

    It obviously warms candles
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    why would you need your candles warmed?
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    is this like a fetish thing
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Because they obviously need to be warmed
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    The person who made the image was probably just thinking of wax melts and said candles shit happens
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Although the wax of a candle could probably be melted down and repurposed with a fresh wick sometimes the wick burns out and the jar is still full
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    I dont think a candle is ever going to work on there.
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    no they're actually called candle warmers

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    Thought that was a mug warmer.
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    what i don't get is, if you want the smell, but not the ambience of burning a scented candle, why dont you just get an aromatherapy oil diffuser, scented candles are shit anyway they barely smell

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    @M4x1mumReZ they're used for that, but they're called candle warmers

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    I don't get why they would name it that.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    You wouldn't melt a candle with this, as if it was too big for example then the wax would flood the holder.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    That's my theory btw
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    apparently people use them to melt scented candles instead of burning them which sounds like a very roundabout way to accomplish something

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    It would be more recommended though for wax melts.
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    yeah you use candles that come in jars, apparently

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    You can get those small yankee candles.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    They come in tiny little jars.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    These are what I am on about.
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    i've seen them

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    Me too

    Really nice to have.
