    You can compile even easier (on Windows):

    Grab devkitpro here: https://github.com/devkitPro/installer/releases

    Grab Cygwin here: https://cygwin.com/install.html

    Go to PC properties > Advanced system settings > Environment variables > add ;C:\devkitPro\devkitA64\bin and press OK


    Now download ReiNX here: https://github.com/Reisyukaku/ReiNX

    Extract the zip to your desktop

    Open cmd and run the following commands:


    cd desktop

    cd ReiNX-master

    make


    Now open the ReiNX-master folder you extracted to your desktop and you'll find an 'out' folder which contains the compiled files you need on your SD card


    No VM needed this way :)

    Yes I completely understand that :) But for people that want to try compiling stuff for the first time it may be less intrusive if they don't need a VM and can start to compile in Windows

    (insert wacky and amusing place here)
    Wouldn't it be better to suggest WSL? WSL is a lot less heavy than a VM and is the barebones you would need for this kind of thing...

    Why would you need a VM ? Can't devkitpro work on Windows ?

    Well it's almost the same thing, just install devkitpro, open msys2, install devkita64 (and devkitarm if needed) and all the tools / environment, hit make, be done.

    And why not share compiled file for those who don't/can't make them?

    This zip was already posted in the ReiNX thread but here you go :) Compiled ReiNX: https://gbatemp.net/attachments/rei-zip.136659

    Yeah I also prefer compiling in Windows since it's a lot easier and it's more accessible for starters to work with

    maybe you can make it for yourself with this tut instead of going to every source thread begging for binaries
