    Lakka Switch, L4T edition
    I am proud to finally release the L4T version of Lakka Switch!
    New kernel, new logo, new drivers, audio... everything is fresh and clean.

    Did I mention Rayman 3 was full speed on Dolphin? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    General system updates
    • New Linux kernel and underlying operating system, based on Linux4Tegra and Jetson Nano drivers
      • mainline kernel has been deprecated
      • system features should now be on par with the L4T Ubuntu distribution, except for dock support
      • Bluetooth was lost in the battle and needs some rest to come back stronger
    • aarch64 is now the default and mainly supported architecture
      • arm has been deprecated since L4T doesn't support it
    • New logo made with the help of jaames and the R:S community
    New features and improvements
    • Audio now works through the internal speakers and headphones
    • The new GPU driver supports both Vulkan and OpenGL
    • RAM is now locked at full speed (1600Mhz), was 800MHz before
    • The system is now way more stable and should boot for everyone with a decent SD card (no more black screen of death)
    • RetroArch has been updated to add menu widgets (fancy onscreen notifications)
    • Overclock profiles have been updated :
      • Renamed all profiles
      • Added more overclock profiles
      • Added underclock profiles
    New cores
    • mupen64plus-next (N64 emulator)
      • The core is full speed, even on aarch64 thanks to the new dynarec
      • Includes the updated version of the GlideN renderer
    • picodrive (various Sega consoles)
      • The core replaces Genesis Plus GX (Game Gear support has been dropped)
    • Beetle PSX HW (PSX emulator with OpenGL and Vulkan renderer)
      • The core performs worse than PCSX ReARMed for now, even with Vulkan
    • reicast (Dreamcast emulator)
      • The core is full speed on all commercial games, no visual glitches
      • The OIT renderer works (better accuracy), speed is still good on 1x resolution
      • The core needs the Dreamcast BIOS files to be placed in /lakka/storage/system/DC
      • WinCE games are currently not supported - there is a WinCE version of the reicast core in the works but the aarch64 dynarec is too slow for the games to be playable (for now)
    • Yaba Sanshiro (Saturn emulator)
      • The core is full speed on all commercial games
      • Yabause and Kronos were also added but both perform worse than Yaba Sanshiro
    • theodore (Thomson MO/TO emulator)
    Updated cores
    • Dolphin : Vulkan support
      • With Vulkan, Dolphin runs decently - some games are playable, some are full speed... see for yourself, try it and experiment with different games and settings!
    • PCSX ReARMed : Switch optimizations and CHD support
    • PPSSPP : doesn't crash anymore when closing content
    Removed cores
    • mupen64plus
    • parallel-n64
    • Genesis Plus GX
    • Ishiiruka
      • It might come back once the core is updated with the (beta) Vulkan renderer
    Credits
    • Kernel and drivers work: NVIDIA, switchroot team (especially ByLaws and langerhans)
    • Lakka Switch work: natinusala and plaidman
    • RetroArch, original Lakka distribution: libretro team
    • mupen64plus-next: Gillou and m4xw
    • PCSX ReARMed: Switch optimizations by m4xw, CHD support by aliaspider
    • Dolphin core: aliaspider
    • reicast core: flyinghead

    Hell yes. If I were home, I'd be testing PSO to see how it ran. Closest we can get to BlueBurst.

    so when you say cores are full speed do you mean full speed with overclock or full speed with stock clock speed?

    Is sleep working properly in this build?

    Are shutdown functions working properly now? If sleep is not working, I want to be able to properly shutdown if possible. Great work otherwise!!!

    EDIT the FAQ answered these questions:

    https://lakka-switch.github.io/documentation/faq.html


    Short: Shutdown is working, sleep is NOT.

    Honestly, probably both lol but overclocking is still below the hardware spec of the CPU isn't it? Nintendo underclocked it from Factory didn't they??

    As i mentioned earlier, we are being bombarded with awesome stuff for the switch.

    Just got a new 128 sd card in the mail, perfect timing for this.

    Thanks a lot for your efforts , much appreciated!

    Generally full speed with zero or minimal overclock (dreamcast and saturn).

    Shutdown to RCM works. Sleep mode is still being worked on.

    I know for a fact shenmue is full speed. To fix some polygon glitches in that game, go into core settings, and set 'alpha sorting' to 'per-pixel' (or something like that).

    If we could get a reboot to payload feature, then I would be set.

    Seriously though, this is amazing work right there. :yayswitch:
