Recently there was a few different methods I read about to allow playing some VC games off SD card.
Has it been perfected Ive been out of the loop for 3 weeks so im not sure if the answer is yes or no now..

Im looking to install 10-20 whatever number of VC titles NES, SNES, N64? etc on SD card and have them launch from the SD card saving me blockage space.

If there is a 100% working method please let me know what its called and a link would be appreciated. The early methods have limited compatibility and some speed issues from what I read.

Yes VC games are now fully playable/perfected. They have managed to dump all of them perfectly into WADs and all of them install fine... provides u follow the instructions to install them ......... but emulator channels are the future... leave VC games alone

What the hell? Did you even read his post, hell, even the thread title?

OP: The answer is no, not yet.

Nope, you can't. With WAD Manager however you can store a bunch of them on a SD card, and then install and uninstall what you like. Not as good, but eh.

Yeah, and in terms of compatibility, there are still a number of N64 games that won't work over VC or emulator. Everything else works I think. And seeing as we now have USB support, we'll be getting compatible homebrew soon. That will solve space issues.
Though to do what you want, I reckon we'll need custom firmware. Hopefully that's not too far off.

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    that's not important

    i can't tell the difference

    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
