    There's no reason for you to be rude. There is nothing wrong with being excited about the release of new Homebrew/emulators and making a video about it. Let people have their fun!

    I think most of the problem is you being very agressive. There's simply no need for that.

    Anyways shall we go back on topic? The guy makes the effort to make a very nice port for us to enjoy and we are shitting his thread.

    He has now brought GBC and GBA to 4.x.x and 5.x.x very impressive in such a short time.

    What's next lol he will surprise us with N64

    MupeNX, DolphiNX and PPSSPP are my most wanted
     
  18. Good point sorry. This GBA port is great, glad to see the audio being fixed on this little project, maybe Snes next? Not sure how much work has to go into porting these over

    The real endgame for switch emulators are 6 gen consoles (GC,Wii?,PS2), until that happens i'll be playing the GOAT handheld: the GBA.

    Sigh... time to start Pokemon fire red and golden sun again... lol

    man, this has finally brought me to try hekate. I have no problem that the sound sucks, but sadly for me it crashes after a while (~5 minutes). Im on 4.1.0
    But thank you for all the hard work, really appreciated :)

    It's been a busy day lol

    Finally back on track.

    Two quick questions, did we get the rom directory moved to switch/roms/GBA?

    To better help keep games organized in our Roms folder of course.

    I read something about audio optimisation or it running a bit better. Is that build out?

    Yes I'm reading back in the thread I'm usually caught up a bit more.

    @jakibaki I wanted to let you know earlier both the GBC and GBA emulators run in docked mode BUT after a few minutes errors out and you have to restart the switch.

    NO it is not priority for docked mode with the emulators but I did want to bring it to your attention.

    How does using cfw mean wiping your sd card?

    You only have to if the sd card is 128gb to fat32 if I'm not mistaken.

    Depends on a few things.

    I have a few sd cards needed formatted to load correctly.

    2 sd cards just worked with filed place on them with payload sent.

    Really weird.

    I'll probably move the folders in the next release :)

    Thanks for letting me know this. Unfortunately I can't debug this as I don't own anything to dock my switch into.
    If any other dev has any idea why this happens I'd gladly fix it.

    I'll do some research and see what I can find in regards to the docking issue thing.

    As for the games folder director greatly appreciated, many people including yourself I'm sure see the benefit of keeping our roms folder organized. It will be stacked before we know it lol longer to find things.

    All the best take your time.

    Thanks again playing Pokemon Red my first ever Pokemon game brings me back to my childhood sitting under a lamp with my ORIGINAL Gameboy, green display no backlight. Those were the days were you had to work for what you wanted, kind of like homebrew now

    I pushed an update which changes the rompath to sd:/switch/roms/gba in order to avoid confusion. Also dual joycons now work in disattached mode :)
