    I'm thinking about installing this on my SD card, replacing Horizon OS Retroarch. How is the overall performance of the cores? (Im especially interested in PS1, N64 and Dolphin) Do I need to plug in mouse and keyboard or it is fully controllable by joycons? Overall, is it worth it to install as a main emulation solution on Switch?

    personally I don’t think there is a main emulation solution on the switch. It’s basically a poor way to use the console. There are many abilities you have in terms of emulation so I don’t feel you should use just one. This would be my go to for portable psp/gamecube/dreamcast. In terms of sega saturn/ds/dreamcast android is my goto because it can be docked and and i can use other controllers. If you don’t use docked this build of lakka is great but to me one of the big positives of the device is i can play on the go and on my big screen.

    I think the most complete thing you can have is RetroArch in LineageOS

    true but lakka/linux has a lower overhead than android which is why people want this to work

    to be honest this is not well thought out. Let me give you an example. Saturn for instance. Saturn is poorly emulated in android retroarch. But yaba sanshiro works great. Alot of people don’t like saturn but i have greatly enjoyed playing it on my switch. There are other consoles as well. Ds emulation in retroarch compared to drastic (or heck melon ds in horizon). So this is definitely not a true statement. Not picking on you. Trying to inform since you already have android setup but are not apparently aware of those differences in emulation.

    I was playing Majoras Mask in 4K in Dock mode, literally. Although I do not recommend it because the system freezes you haha.

    The 3DS emulator with Vukan support also works, although there is a problem with 2D graphics that closes when the Zelda logo comes out. I wish I had a solution, because I noticed that it had good performance.

    They say that Android 9 from Lineage OS has better performance ...

    I have done a new compile, I have updated the NVidia drivers to 32.4.2, Xorg to 2020.1 and a few other package updates. Retroarch and the cores have also been updated.

    How is the performance + compatibility comparison between Ubuntu L4T and Lakka L4T ?.

    In the case of Ubuntu being better, could an Ubuntu L4T Lite be made that only contains Retroarch ?.
