    Thank you a lot. So the problem really is that I've probably tried unplayable games:


    F-zero (Max perf and Vulkan) doesn't even reach 30 fps;
    Soul Calibur is around 45-50 fps;
    Resident Evil Rebirth is quite playable, I'm enjoying it;
    Super Smash Bros. always stays below 50 fps, a lot of stuttering...

    Let me know if some of you all has better performance in one of those particular games.

    For anyone who wants to run Genesis Plus GX under this build of Lakka, here's the core I built for Retroarch for the vanilla L4T image. I don't know much about how Linux works, but somehow this core actually seems to run fine:
    https://www59.zippyshare.com/v/QHvXMOVr/file.html

    Extract this to /storage/lakka/cores and you'll be good to go. I haven't tested it thoroughly, but it definitely worked at least the one time I tried it :)

    Edit: I know someone much smarter than me posted that there were issues including it so they might still be there, but it's here for those who want to give it a go.

    Shaneus can you send me the compiler options you used to build this? Or a log of the compiler output? (compiler output might be better)

    That's so weird, I managed to get Geometry Wars Galaxies running better with OpenGL. No idea why.

    Edit:
    Hah, I'd have no idea how to do that! It was basically how it was done in this thread:
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/l4t-ubuntu-applcation-install-guides.537579/
    I really do know next to nothing about Linux so I don't know where those files would reside. I just made a backup of the Libretro binary folders before I formatted the SD card with this new Lakka build.

    Ah so you installed retroarch through apt and backed up the .so file.

    Strange, I can't even get past the time/date screen in PSO. Lakka crashes right after that.
    Got any hints how to fix this?
    I'm using a the us .iso.

    They handle 1785mhz cpu + 921mhz gpu without any issues, afaict Nintendo tests systems at the factory with those speeds (at least they did with older systems), and I’ve played for hours with said speeds with no negative effects (besides the fan being a bit louder)

    I’m guessing they don’t run it at those higher speeds either because they don’t want the gap between handheld and docked to be super large, or they wanted to keeps the fan almost silent (or both!)

    I used my old save file from my gamecube memory card and brought it over to lakka and it worked.

    Read the wording in the game carefully because it is confusing. It will ask if you want to go to the Calendar screen - do not do this, it will black screen.

    does anyone know the most convenient way to either
    a) switch off the console
    b) switch off the display
    c) get into sleep mode

    any of the above will do ;). Is the fast method to do any of the above to just relaunch LAKKA into RCM/horizon, then just either sleep or shutdown from there? Also I remember a while ago screen burning would happen if Lakka was left too long in the menu, is that still a thing? Final question :P, does leaving Lakka overclocked affect anything outside of Lakka? i had heard tell rumours :P.

    Woukd also like to give much kudos & appreciation and thanks to all the developers involved, Ive been craving an L4T version of Lakka for a fair while, and this sounds frigging amazing!

    Can someboy please tell me how to put the BIOS for dreamcast? Noob level please. I try to create a folder named System, but it seems already exists, but I see it as a file. I tried to use a program that it is supposed to let you access that folders because they seem to be ext4 or something like that, that is linux format. However, I can't. I used ext2explore and a couple more. With them I also see the folder as a file, so I can't do anything.

    I know about the lack of sleep mode in LAKKA, I've heard tell it might be a long way if it is indeed coming at all :P. Do you perchance know about weather leaving Lakka in the menu for extended periods of time can still leave a screen burn? Also was wondering weather overclocking LAKKA can affect horizon at all, any information would be awesome.

    It it goes into sleep mode then what happens ? I haven't installed it yet because I feel that it is incomplete and I will wait for it to increase greatly improvement over times.

    Run PSO on PC using Dolphin, make sure the save is RAW, then create your character/get in game. Then move that save over to Retroarch on the Switch. You'll be able to get into game that way.

    Thanks, but like sj32 said, all you have to do is say no at the time/date screen and it will let you go on without problems.

    Has anyone got a Saturn game to last more than 5 mins with freezing? I've tried a few games and all freeze after a while making me hard reset the Switch.
