    How do you connect a bluetooth mouse? I can't find any config for it.

    The Switch only supports USB Keyboard and Mouse, not Bluetooth. All keyboards seem to work. Some mice work, some don't. My Logitech M187 wireless USB mouse works fine.

    EDIT: My mistake in the OP I should have said USB not Bluetooth.

    Ok, np. I'll change my mouse in that case.

    Maybe someone should port OpenRA (Open Red Alert) engine to Switch? :D

    The game always crashes on the third map(Capua) when you reach a population around 1000.

    Can't get past that unfortunately. On Switch 6.2.0 (AMS 0.8.2)

    It might run out of memory: Are you launching via "album"? Album gives almost no memory.

    Nsp injection gives much more memory. To do it (at least with SX PRO): hold R pressed while launching any game, then hbmenu should open. Select Julius there to launch it.

    Otherwise, it will help if you can save just before the crash and upload the zipped save file. It would help me find the bug.

    Another thing to test is: is it a video playing that causes the crash?

    Don't have SX PRO i use atmosphere and Using pokemon quest for homebrew launcher so i have full RAM access. I think it happened once crashing while playing a video in the same map Capua.

    Last crash i had was yesterday with a pop of 1300.

    Ill play later today to try to get a save just before it crashes

    You can try to rename the video folder “SMk” to “smk_backup”. This will stop the videos but maybe fix the crash. Some users reported that the Vita version crashed when Caesar requests oil. It might be the same crash you are seeing here. This is just a guess.

    Well i just had a long run with the game reaching a pop of 1800+(same map) with no problems until a video of caesar came up (telling me he is not happy blah blah) where it did crash sendidng me back to home menu.

    I did reload the save to see if the game would crash again in the same spot, saw 2 videos in a row without crash so i guess that the bug is hard to reproduce.

    I will try to rename the folder “SMk” to “smk_backup" to see if its helps.

    I think there’s some bug in the video player. Try renaming that folder with the video files for now to see if you can keep playing.

    The videos won’t play but they are not needed. That’s what people have done in the Vita.

    Hopefully I can fix the bug soon.

    New release v1.02.

    https://github.com/rsn8887/julius/releases/latest

    Changelog:
    v1.02
    • Compile with latest source, should hopefully fix crashes with video playback
    • Hold ZR/ZL for slow/fast mouse, useful for precise pointer control with left analog stick
    • Implement direct touch mode where pointer jumps to finger directly (press minus to toggle)

    NOTE: There are now nightly buildbot releases for Julius Switch. They can be found in the "Latest Unstable" column in the table on the official Julius webpage here: https://github.com/bvschaik/julius/

    The last buildbot release includes a fix I did to reduce audio lag!

    This is due to libnx v2.1 which was used to compile nightlies. I have to wait until libnx 2.2 releases. Then I have to update the Julius buildbot to link with libnx2.2 to fix 8.0.x support.

    Note: this affects ALL homebrew compiled with current libnx v2.1. So expect a lot of homebrew to stop working if you update to 8.0.x. All the homebrew devs that used libnx 2.1 will have to re-compile their releases with libnx 2.2 to fix 8.0.x support.

    can you try this latest manual build I made? If this works on 8.0.1, this means that the next official buildbot update will also work on 8.0.1. However, the buildbot will only update if a new commit is made. I am not sure when.

    latest julius version that hopefully works on 8.0.1:
