    I've notice some saving states and loading states of game saves has been a little buggy and not as reliable since the sound update. Just to keep you informed of any degradation from other fixes.

    Lost one Save state for Pokemon Fire Red no big deal just informing @jakibaki

    I'm sure @jakibaki will get saved sorted out.

    For anyone wondering Save states should also be moved to the same folder as your roms if you were using this before the update

    I didn't change anything about the savestates in the audio update so I doubt it's that :/

    Could you please tell me how exactly you 'lost' the save state? Did the game just stop loading, was stuff glitching...?

    This is due to the battery save not being supported, I'm guessing that the game tries to save and then freezes as it can't write the data to the memory, should be relatively easy to fix. I should really fix that and implement the remaining ppu transparency effects, althrough I'm pretty busy with ryujinx rn.

    Anyway, very nice to see it being ported to the switch and being improved :)

    Serious question: Why do people port these obscure emulators rather than more successful, feature-packed emulators like VBA?

    Loading the save state would freeze after loading with artifacts.

    Sound gets so slow during backup also.

    Just seemed really wierd after the audio fix.

    Give me more time i did start a New save state.

    Why wait? Hekate on 5.0.2 works pretty well. We now have GBC and GBA emulators, and a port of Final Burn Alpha. I've been playing on my Switch more than ever before!

    Great job however Pokemon Glazed keeps crashing on me for some odd reason... It works for like 4-5 minutes and the Error Code: 2345-0021 pops up and I have to restart the whole device. Bummer. I thought I'd actually finish this Rom hack on a system I like.

    To run the sleepless Hekate or not to run? That is the question.

    Thanks OP for the sound, and rompath updates, but Since the last update I've had a major issue of running pre-update savestates, not sure why I can only assume since the rompath changed that I think that could be the root of this problem?

    I just restarted anyway, new post-update savestates work just fine, so I'm good.

    this is really cool stuff, but I'll stick to gpsp on my vitas adrenaline.
    until we get something like gpsp on the switch!

    I've been running Hekate and using pFBA as a screensaver to prevent screen burn-in. I usually either use one of the Ghouls 'n' Goblins games, or Marvel vs Capcom.

    What a neat proof of concept! I got it to work with Fire Red, although after the tutorial normal battles slow down a LOT, so I can't really play this on here. The Minish Cap both (U) and (J) just kind of hang at the select menu, Super Mario Advance 4 just sort of hangs at the beginning, Harvest Moon FOMT has so much garbage on the screen constantly that I can't play it, same goes for Metroid Zero Mission, and the GBA port of Link to the Past just fills the screen with purple, making everything invisible.

    Too bad I can't play any of the GBA games I like on this, but keep it up, I bet you can figure out how to get some of these working eventually. Your GBC port is really great!

    Quick thing: I bet at least two of these are due to the limitation of not being able to save, would it be possible to completely eliminate that call in the code so it simply does nothing instead of crashing?

    @jakibaki Thanks a lot for sharing your work. This is amazing. Mario Kart Super Circuit, Super Mario World and Wario Land 4 seem to work near perfect. The sound is great everything and controls are tight.​
