    I downloaded todays nighty build and when I try to select load content with any of the emulators, it freezes. Why is it suddenly doing this?

    It's probably a bug with the latest nightly. Try rolling back to the previous one and see if that works.

    never got the point of having a million nightlies, 80% of which dont work at all with the rest randomly breaking stuff that worked before without ever improving more than a single emulator if at all. but yeah, lets just port yet another core for a system we already have three off.

    It's better to just stick to a major stable release

    Still waiting on a explination on why I cant run any of the Newer Builds of RA. Can only run the 8 November Build.

    It was a bug with a commit that TwinAphex added a few days ago. He reverted it once I made an issue about it, so that should "fix" it temporarily (fix is in quotes because ideally the cleanup should stay, and the changes he made weren't really that major, so it's weird that it's not working).

    Does it work with other CFWs? Maybe it's some weird Gateway emuNAND bug.

    No idea. I Updated to the latest GW and still in the same situation. Would NTR count as a CFW? Or is it basically a Cheat Engine?

    NTR wouldn't work, no. You'd need to try out Cakes, Reinand, or RxTools. For the easiest/quickest time I'd try Reinand. Grab 3.2 from https://github.com/Reisyukaku/ReiNand/releases , extract it to the root of your SD card and point your boot manager (if you use one) to either the .dat or the .3dsx. The zip file is pretty much ready to plug and play from the get go.

    Yes*.

    *If you have out of region games you might need to use NTR, Free multi Patcher or Region Free Patcher to make them show up and run. But since we're talking about homebrew here, that's not an issue.

    Never understood the point of retroarch ports when most of them run like crap.

    Most run pretty good, although some functions dont seem to work for the 3DS Port yet. They are aiming for the Cores to be functioning and working properly at a good Speed before adding the other Features
