    This is an experimental emulator, currently in early stages of development, that I started last year. The main difference from other emulators is that it is written in C#, instead of other languages like C++ where emulators are usually written. It translates the Arm64 machine code into the .NET intermediate language (MSIL), which in turn is transformed by the .net JIT (RyuJIT) into x86 machine code.

    Demos

    Currently, the emulator can only run a few homebrew apps, and it is quite slow too.

    Running Sonic 3 on the PicoDrive retroarch port (video): https://gfycat.com/NiceWealthyEastsiberianlaika

    It doesn't run any commercial games yet, althrough Puyo Puyo Tetris show some logos:
    [​IMG]
    However it gets stuck on that screen due to unimplemented audren:u functionality (and its also really really slow).
    Other games usually fail earlier due to unimplemented services or bugs due to poorly implemented svc and/or services.

    Source:

    The source can be found on the following repository: https://github.com/gdkchan/Ryujinx

    The .NET Core runtime or SDK is necessary to run it.
    Any contribution, suggestion or constructive criticism is always welcome.
    If you have some homebrew that currently doesn't work on it, I also accept PMs with the compiled NRO/NSO and source code if possible and will work to make them work. LibNX is know to be broken because I don't have any app compiled on it.

    Special thanks goes to the people working on reverse engineering the Switch OS and writing the docs at Switchbrew.

    Why do the graphics look as good as if they were native emulation? I do not know, it seems fake ...

    I have a question, why don't you help the Yuzu team with your talent ?
    (Or I didn't get something...)

    It is indeed real. I looked at the source and have compiled it.

    Wow, props to that. Thing isn't even cracked fully open and we have PoC emulators.

    That's an interesting approach to coding an emulator, I wonder if it'll be as fast as native code.
    I'm a C# coder myself, so I find this pretty cool.
    Good luck with your project, looking forward to seeing how it progresses.
