    Either way, this will be a long project for you I assume after reading through the patreon page, and thanks for explaining!
    The problem started after you fixed the dock audio, maybe you can make a version with the older threads if your time is to limited but I don't want to ask for too much :)

    re: libnx threading

    it might be using cooperative threading, like the 3DS, which means you need to make sure to give other threads a chance to run

    on the 3DS, calling any syscall would have the side-effect of calling the scheduler and allowing other threads to run. I figure it's similar on the Switch, but dunno.

    looks like I was ninja'd :o

    also, we need folks with AMD GPUs to test it, because I got reports that it's shitting itself

    I have a small idea of what might be failing but I'd need confirmation (and if it's what I think, it would suck big time)

    MelonDS (Without Dynamic ) 0.8 running 8x easily on desktop with dedicated GPU. Let's see how well it will run on NSwitch.

    Well, unfortunately the nouveau-based GPU drivers we have on the Switch weren't getting good performance with an early version of the renderer, so don't get your hopes too high, though hopefully it's improved with the current version. Also, I'm having some issues getting the current one working, so expect a release hopefully tomorrow. I should probably go to bed now~

    You can always update it to the latest version with ChoiNX. I have a 3.0.0 and updated to 7.0.1. You can always downgrade it to 3.0.0 again with ChoiNX using 3.0.0 firmware folder. :)

    I noticed that a hot-fix was pushed today for melonDS, I assume that might've fixed the problem you were facing yesterday?

    Well, here's a bit of an update I guess. I got the renderer working yesterday, but there are some strange issues with polygons randomly not rendering. We're looking into it, but it seems like it might be a driver bug. Regarding performance: it's about the same as the software renderer. In some cases it's a bit faster, while in others it's a bit slower. Also, I have some reworking to do so that the screen layouts and stuff will work with the new GL display method, though the polygon issue has a higher priority right now. Anyways, release will probably be delayed for a bit. The current source is up on my GitHub on the opengl branch though, if you wanna check it out. I just don't wanna officially release anything until it's working right.

    ((((And to plug my DS emulator NooDS for a second, I'm currently having some luck getting a few homebrews to run, so maybe we'll have that to fall back on in the future as a (hopefully) speedy DS emulator on the Switch??))))
