THE 2018 SWITCH HOMEBREW BOUNTY
MONTH 2: SWITCH APPLICATIONS

What is the 2018 GBAtemp Switch Homebrew Bounty? Read more here. (MONTH 2: WINNERS ANNOUNCED! CLICK HERE)

The second month has now officially begun. You have until December 31st (23:59:59 UTC+00) to submit your Switch homebrew application and get a chance to win a massive cash reward! There will be 4 consecutive months, one for each category. We'd like to remind you that this is the second month, and this month dedicated to the following category.

CATEGORY 2: Switch Applications

This category is meant to reward authors of Switch applications, as in, programs that run natively on the Switch itself and serve a specific purpose such as media players, file managers, homebrew loaders, and much more (this short list is non-exhaustive). If you aren't sure whether your project fits in this category, look at the other categories listed in this thread, and if in doubt, simply ask a moderator.

The top 5 highest-voted projects in this category will receive:
#1: $1,000 reward
#2: $500 reward
#3: $300 reward
#4: $150 reward
#5: $55 reward

In order to submit your project, please respect the following instructions:
• Upload your project to the GBAtemp Download Center. Make sure to give a proper description, screenshots, anything you might find useful. This is your chance to showcase your project, the better your page looks, the more chance you may receive votes from judges.
• If your project is not entirely new, it must at least come with a major/significant update, so please describe specifically what new feature(s) the upgrade brings forth.
• After your project is posted to the download center, please post a comment in this thread to link to your project.

After December 31st, two voting sessions will begin simultaneously: a staff vote, and a patron vote (for our backers on Patreon). The results will be announced a week after.



Sponsors

Half of this sum is generously donated by yours truly, GBAtemp!

I think you misunderstood my intent. I can't change the attitude of the scene especially since the Switch is a "kiddie console" you get a lot of immature people who don't realize what coding entails. However, you should understand that for a lot of these devs that coding is a hobby, and hobbies are something you do for fun, not for profit.

Immature people are everywhere, whether it's a kiddie or an adultie console. And, on that note, some think all games are for kids.

My point was, these devs aren't obligated to do any of this. And, surely, not for free. Just like a money donation is a courtesy offering, these devs donating their time to the community is way more valuable. If they all decided to stop, then what?.

They, already, work their butts off for us for nothing. These Bounties seem like a fun incentive. Like an Award Show for Devs! :toot: I hope Switch developers know that there are many of us who appreciate them are they are the epitome of "The Heroes We Need, But Don't Deserve". {omg, first time using that phrase, but it's perfect for the Switch homebrew community}

First off let me start with staying this software is great. It throws no flags anywhere and it reminds me of when I started to code in VB3 way back in the OG days.

Okay so this is quite cool. I was toying around with it with some enterprise hardware access points and I was able to not only stream from my laptop that I have in the theater wireless to the switch in the office, I was able to launch Retroarch with Dreamcast and run Crazy Taxy and Sonic Adventure with no lag. I was using Windows 10 and the Xbox 360 drivers pulled in no issues. I needed to invert the up/down left axis but after that it ran with zero issues. Once Audio is setup I am going to run a Virtual machine dedicated to streaming. I also tested Fortnite (lags a little) as well as Roblox (lagged alot) and basic youtube stuff. Plex and XBMC home theater worked perfect with 4K content streaming, with no audio. Once mouse and KB emulation is a thing this software has amazing potential.

can you please stop spamming each post with multiple words?
one is enough.

AM2R is playable, but has a savegame issue. the user who worked on fixing it stopped trying because of users's reaction and comportment regarding his work. he doesn't care anymore, to bad, right? maybe people should behave themselves and don't bite the hand of the feeder.

if you search for other existing game mods, you can look at this wiki page: https://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/List_of_Switch_patches

OK. You're right. I will just type ONE WORD PER POST.
And to complete a sentence I will have multiple flood posts. -_-"


Anyways thanks for some information. That sucks. DX What were people saying his work was trash or something? That is very unfortunate. How playable is it? Like... Completely fine excluding being able to save?

I participate with Lan Play GUI because why not:
Download Center(i uploaded just the win64 version science all versions even compressed formed a file too large): link
GBAtemp Thread: link
Github: link
I'm pretty sure this is only for applications that run on Switch. This is just a GUI frontend for the Windows executable side of Lan Play, right?

It says it in the second paragraph of the OP:
