    I'm really curious what this whole rpx thing is about with the new Homebrew Launcher 1.4 update, I feel a bit left in the dark about it. Is it something only for devs to understand?
    I didn't see anyone else asking so I decided to make a topic about it, in case any others were wondering the same.

    RPXs are the native format for applications and games, you can create homebrew RPXs with https://github.com/decaf-emu/wut. In my opinion, the RPX format is much cleaner than the current .elf format and doesn't have the limitations in code size that .elf has either. Basically .3dsx vs .cia in 3DS terms.
