    Someone submitted a pull request a few days ago which generally cleaned up the repo (which I greatly appreciate) so you probably mean that :)

    However the fixes in v8.5 are entirely @gdkchans work.

    A port of vba would be pretty great since it supports more features and most likely performs much better so I'm looking forward to that if it happens!

    I don't know the lingo but yes! He did that thing you said. He's a rare breed and just picked up a switch JUST to get into the hacking scene.
    He's got other larger projects for after gba is up and running smoothly, but I'll let him surprise people for what he'll do.

    I just don't reserve the right, It isn't anything related to gaming though so it would be off topic anyway.

    yeah true, I wouldn't want someone showing everyone my wip art without my permission.
    Really odd you would buy the switch just for hacking...

    Well if you want to get into console-hacking the switch is a pretty great choice :).

    An active community, pretty great toolchain, proper documentation and still a lot of homebrew/emulators that haven't been done already so it's still easy to contribute.

    Also the architecture of the switch os is really fascinating so once atmosphere is out writing kernel modules (services?) is going to be something that's going to be fun to learn/do.

    I guess but that's the solely purpose you bought one? Not only that but piracy is going to be a huge program so I wonder what Nintendo is going to do next. They might have a way to see who is using a hack switch and ban them from online.

    Hi ownedlol, thanks for reporting on the playability of minish cap. How about the sound, did it get any better? I'll try it tonight once I put the baby to sleep, can't wait!

    I was thinking the exact same thing to be honest. If you look back at the wii and wiiu emulator wise; we had a great thing going with the likes of; fce ultra gx, vba gx , snes gx. Not that I dont applaud the work being done already and so quite early in the development chain. Just I am not sure what would be the 'better' aproach.

    It's completely fair because the guy who started this port called it exactly that.

    Y'all are endlessly tagging this guy in your posts, chill out.

    Porting a simple, no-frills, no-GUI emulator like this one is magnitudes easier and quicker to do than to port something more complex like VBA. This was the quickest way to get us a functional emulator, and I applaud it.

    That said, I'm working on VBA, but it's a much different beast. If you can contribute to projects like these, please do, but otherwise try to support and encourage what's being done - porting emulators, especially complex and GUI-filled ones, isn't a simple task.

    Thanks for reporting this issue. I already fixed it on my ppu branch.
    I also started working to optimize it a bit more, however I won't have time today so I will continue the work tomorrow. I will also look into the games that aren't starting due to save issues after that (hopefully will have time to do both tomorrow).

    Nah I am not bashing it in any way. Don't get me wrong there.
    The fact that you mention GUI and all is pretty clear, we are still at the infancy of the Switch scene, and already so many things are happening. And I applaud that for sure.

    In regard to helping out ... if only I really had the time (and the actual skill) to do so when it comes to porting. I can help in other ways sure (testing, setting up hosting etc (if wanted by anyone in the scene this is a open invite to contact me for that)

    But sadly both (time and the porting skills) are a bit lacking on my end due to other projects, work, family and so on.
    (it's even a real feat being able to take some time to come here and interact at a decent level)

    PS: cool to hear about your steps in porting VBA; be sure to let people know you are looking for help. More hands make work easier in the long run and I am sure a lot of people would want to get their hands 'dirty'.

    Read my post again slower and maybe you'll understand what I meant. You already did? Good job! Now read this.

    Do you understand what I meant now? Hope you do. Also, I didn't know tagging him also notified and bother you or any other user. It doesn't? Then why do you care?

    As always thank you very much! :) I pushed what you've done so far into another experimental release.

    Well, realistically how far do you think you are from competing with the VBA emulator?
    To me, it seems like you're making steady progress daily... And who knows, by the time Retroarch/VBA emu is updated you might even be there.

    And this is one of the core reasons I am asking. WHEN and IF vba will come ....
    Therefore development in each direction is a good one :)

    I'm still having the issue where this emulator keeps randomly deleting all my save data on all my ROMs. Even though the sav files and save states are still there and everything.

    I even tried to bring over save data from my mGBA emulator from my 3DS, but nothing is working? How can I fix this? It's making the entire emulator unusable for me.
