    Hey guys, massive apologies for the mess that was the 0.7.2 release. I took a bit of a break, but now I'm back and here with the "solution" to the microphone crashing. I think the crash happens when launching from an installed NSP. I'm not sure why, and I can't confirm it because installing NSPs will net me a ban that I would like to avoid, but either way there's not much I can do. On top of that threading is still being dumb, but I worked around it and now the microphone will only be used if the option is set. Obviously this isn't a perfect solution since it'll still crash for anyone who had it crash before, but at least now changing the setting will prevent it. I think the last "fix" build I uploaded had busted audio (I never actually tested it though!) but this one should be good. Oh, I also fixed the save state option; when I was rushing the 0.7.2 release I forgot to update a value and it broke. I've got a 0.7.2 build with these fixes attached, please use it over the "official" 0.7.2 release. It's a bit too late for a hotfix and 0.7.3 is probably coming soon, so I won't bother with an actual release for this.

    tl;dr Use the attached build, if it crashes turn off the microphone in the settings.

    Yeah, the nomic build had broken audio. I took it down. Try the build I just posted above, or worst case try 0.7.1. They should have working audio.

    Sound works now, thank you!

    Can't wait for HW support! Metroid prime works almost perfect.

    Well that's a new problem. Bad BIOS/firmware dump maybe?

    It's looking good @Hydr8gon :) Once there is a proper, full speed release I'm making a video :P

    melonDS 0.7.3 is out! Check the melonDS website for info on what's changed in the core. On the Switch end, here's the changelog:
    Not much this time, but some important fixes. By the next release I'd like to get some more actual features done like input remapping, including hotkeys. But for now, the 0.7.3 core brings some nice improvements.

    I am testing with SM64DS with the switch on docked mode but I completely forgot I had to touch the screen at the begining of the game :rofl:

    Heh, I wonder if there'd be any usable way to emulate touch control with the joystick or something, for docked mode. Right now docked mode is kind of borked anyways, or the sound is at least. Portable mode is the best way to play for now.

    Ooh, that's not a bad idea. Definitely something to consider for the future.

    Its amazing, also get you one of these cheap touch pens for smartphones. I got one as a gift and it works better than the shitty resistent Touch on the OG DS lol

    Tried to get the actual free spot between the two screens:
