    Is anyone working on something like OpenGL or Vulkan that will be usable for homebrew? I know Lakka has it so its not impossible, but I think if it gets implemented it will be a huge step forward for homebrew.
     
  2. It is being worked on.

    Is it though ? Last info I got was Armada having something working-ish then he left for personnal reasons / not enough time. Did somebody ever continue his work ?
     
  4. I keep hearing that it is, Armada posted his work before leaving, but honestly not seen much concrete going on?

    I don't know in which state his work is exactly, but it looks like he managed to get OpenGL and Vulkan to some degree running on the Switch. I wanted to compile and test it, but it seems like it requires Linux and I have only 15 GB left on my HDD so not enough for a linux partition or a VM, so I couldn't test it.

    Also fincs(author of citro3d) is also working on it https://github.com/devkitPro/mesa I guess somewhen it will be released and downloadable via pacman

    He was able to have glxgears run but it was glitchy on some FW versions, like when you long pressed HOME for instance.
