    Just finished Wind Waker. 90% of the game is fullspeed with 1.7ghz CPU overclock and emulated clock rate at 60%. A few minor slowdowns here and there throughout the game that aren't too bothersome. Unfortunately the final battle with Ganondorf is a consistent 15fps (even with 2ghz OC). Still had a great time playing though, it was my first playthrough since it released on the GameCube when I was like 11 years old. Bylaws is a legend for making it possible to play it on my Switch (and the Dolphin devs).

    Any have any settings for Twilight Princess?

    I have no idea what SSH is, other than that it involves networking. The only Linux machine I have is my Switch. Prior to that, about 10-15 years ago, I had a craptop with 128 MB of RAM (how they ever got Windows working on it, I'll never know) that I installed xubuntu to. As for Lakka, it probably does support ext4 (as you said, it is Linux after all). However within Lakka I couldn't see any way to access the ext4 partition on my SD card. Therefore, for a common layman, effectively, Lakka doesn't support ext4 "out of the box." Can it be set up? Apparently so, but everything you said went way over my head. Since the person asking the original question (which was if they can use the ext4 partition for Lakka) couldn't even figure out how to resize their fat32 partition, it seems doubtful they'll figure out how to set up Lakka to use the ext4 partition. Of course, I could be wrong. It certainly wouldn't be the first (or last) time. But for me, with poor Linux experience, the SSH stuff is very confusing. :wink:

    1. Download putty

    2. Make sure ssh is selected

    3. Put in your switch ip

    4. Put in your username and password for linux and click connect

    SSH is like telnet, fairly simple, and there is a nice windows client for it called putty. Once you are there, you need to mount the drive like any other drive to somewhere in the filesystem. eg mount -t ext4 /dev/sda1 /external_storage

    Obviously these values are subject to change, if it is on an sdcard, or external hdd/flashdrive, and if the mount point exists. if it doesnt create it with mkdir /external_storage.

    Then you can find your roms in lakka in the external storage folder. Or, you could go one better, and mount --bind /external_storage /path/to/lakka/rom/dir/, then it will also be fake mounted to the lakka rom path, and lakka will automatically scan it. Unfortunatly, you will have to do this every time, with out modifying the initrd, which hosts all of lakka.

    Hm, does not work for me. The only docked resolution that works without this output bug is 1280x720, everything else has it. My display is 1080p. Tried changing it a lot of times, did not help. Actually, it makes it worse sometimes, like, even the usable resolution gets wrong DPI or something, it becomes blurry and I have to change it to 1080p and back to 720p to make it readable.
    And this bug was present right after the first launch on a new mSD. And I docked only after the initial setup and a reboot as per OP.

    And @bylaws why don't you release the android build you have currently to the community so everybody can work and help you, i mean i am sure there is a reason but just wanted to know.
    Thx

    First and foremost, I would think a broken android build wouldnt be much use, the code to the broken, but working android build might be. the problem isnt android the problem is the video card drivers not supporting frame buffer acceleration. The nvidia android drivers are broken, so it is a matter of waiting on the mainline to catch up. Until then there isnt much point. That, and if you are asking for the build, instead of building it yourself, you probably arent going to be much help. IMHO. ;)

    Has any one tryed Open X-ray or the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games though Wine on the switch?

    I plan on buying a new SD card to use a dual boot set up (with dongle) but I won't manag to spare the money this month and I am sure that as a linux noob myself it will take quite some time for me to set it up correctly. Specially building OpenX-ray or configuring Wine the right way.

    Not that I know of, I dont think wine would work for the switch, unless the apps were maybe for windows 10 arm. You might be able to get qemu and wine working together, but that is iffy at best.

    S.T.A.L.K.E.R. might be a bit too much for the Switch IMO :/

    @bylaws as you instructed here is my syslog after the fore-mentioned sleep bug occurred: http://ge.tt/82ACvVw2
    Bugs i encountered:
    Switch was able to turn back on but it was in the state it is when freshly booted up. Everything closed etc.
    Wifi was broken but was able to fix that by restarting network-manager
    It only happens after switch is left on sleep mode for more that 10 minutes, from what i can tell.

    This is going to be great but I will wait a little bit longer because I want to play Wii games and Game Cube games without overclocked.

    100% not happening. No source is needed. Anyone with a brain knows wii/GameCube can not be emulated on a 1ghz cpu
