    I've been using mGBA on the switch and it works amazing. I went to play Wario Ware twisted but then realised you need to turn the gba to play. I tried tilting the switch and it worked perfectly and it really amazed me. Do all emulators support this? How did the creator manage to use the switch gyro in the emulator?
    Should I be impressed or is this just a standard feature?

    I believe the gyro is something that could be simple to implement into a emulator. Let's say there is a Wii emulator (won't happen but let's say it does) , the emulator will use the right joycon like the game World of Goo.

    I detached the joycons and it is indeed the right joycon which is being used :)

    Actually made me better at the game as it's much easier to rotate a single joycon than the whole system lol

    There is a Wii emulator that supports gyro controls for gba games, but from what I remember it doesn't work very well.

    Dont they both have gyro? As they can be used as an individual controller. For example there are Mario party mini games which require gyro so they both must have it

    Yes they both have it, think about ARMS as well. I think he was thinking of IR

    Yeah probably. Imagine if only one joycon had gyro it'd be pretty unfair in multiplayer

    The mgba core on retroarch has gyro and it's awesome.

    I'd imagine emulating tilt is not much more complicated than emulating any other button press. I mean, Dolphin has been able to emulate motion controls for a very long time, we have emulators that can emulate light guns and rumble support.

    I'm just waiting for a good N64 emulator to come out that supports Hey You Pikachu's microphone input.

    That's pretty awesome, I bought WarioWare Twisted recently on eBay but the gyro is messed up. Hopefully mGBA also emulates Twisted's rumble as well, then it'll be absolutely perfect.

    Actually, the Switch unit itself also has a gyro, but not many people knew this until the Labo VR kit (myself included). With the Switch tablet in VR mode, no Joy-Con at all, it uses the gyroscope and maybe accelerometers to track your head.
