    No Idea.
    But don't get me wrong, gc will just suck as much as now on linux then.
    And you can't even overclock as much to be able to use it :P

    That sux man as when they NX was announced/revealed all I could think of was GC on the go, especially considering I was already doing it on WiiU in semi portable mode, meh

    But oviously, appreciate your reply and honesty

    "If you're a SX OS user, however, there are some bad news for you: the core is inadvertently incompatible with the aforementioned CFW, so it will not work until TX fixes the issue"

    What problem does TX have to solve?

    When I read the title, I assumed emulation of the Switch itself was being added to Retroarch. Don't overreact to other people's comments m4xw.

    I have a noob question, I've tried to launch a DC game through retroarch/flycast on my switch, and as soon as i try to load the .cue file, i just get an atmosphere error 2144-0001, any clues to what im doing wrong?

    From the top of my head, although I never tried flycast, could be two things:

    - Retroarch must be launched via game mode (not through photo Album, you can look it up), to unlock more RAM
    - No DC BIOS in retroarch BIOS folder

    I can be absolutely wrong though

    Thanks! I think it was missing the bios :) Now that i try to load the .cue file, i get into the dreamcast bios menu, but the game is not loaded, only say "scanning cue" down in the left corner, could that be that it doesn't support that exact game?

    If I try to load a game without the bios files, it shows the Sega Enterprises screen and then closes. If I try with the bios files, Retroarch just closes. The same bios files that work with Reicast don't seem to work with this core. I've tried using the bios files from several different websites with no success. Certainly there's something I'm doing wrong there. As it stands, the core seems to require a very specific MD5/SHA-1 to work (please don't tell me I'm correct on that).

    I would like to know if a version of flycasts for SXOS already exists?

    You need to launch HB Menu via Game mode... so not via Album
