    Whoa, the thread blew up! @catlover007 I wonder if your build should get its own thread, since it has its own UI and all. I dunno if there's any interest in porting the JIT to my UI as well, although I kinda want to rewrite that UI since the code is messy. Anyways, great work! :yaynds:

    Personally would like having the JIT with your UI since the touch one bit hard to use and the file paths are hardcoded in a way that isn't tidy, would prefer all files in the switch/melonds folder instead of root of sdcard.

    Root/melonds:
    bios7
    bios9
    firmware
    romlist

    Have all my files setup properly yet I still cant get any games to start up. Stuck at the white screen. Not only that the gui becomes so laggy, it's near unusable.

    Is it possible for the folder paths to be changed to this? The current one is quite messy.

    sdmc:/switch/melonds for the bios and sdmc:/switch/melonds/roms for the roms.

    bios7.bin

    Not strange, running homebrew through album has only a pittance of memory. To get full memory you need to use either an nsp forwarder or title redirect on atmosphere (Hold R while launching any Switch game)
