    Applet mode limits the amount of ram you can use on a homebrew, launching homebrew via applet mode literally means to access the homebrew browser using the album, to not use applet mode, you launch a switch game while holding R, or use a nsp forwarder for melonDS.

    I thought about this so many times but now I ordered one. :P
    Didn't want to go the route with the free 3d printing alternatives.

    Is there a way to map the right joystick to the touchscreen? I couldn't see anywhere, either in the standalone app or the RA core.

    Mine might take longer (shipping to Germany) but thinking about it it's totally worth it.
    Not only DS emulation but also FB Alpha emulation benefits from it a lot (many vertical rail shooters that are fantastic!) and at least there are many native Switch games too.
    (and that image is even pretty old)

    well i must say i am verry impressed by this but have a few observations. (i refuse to call them complaints cause this is a free softwhere)

    when trying to press the triangle butten to hide some menus, it just produces a black screen even when in a game.

    second is i cant figure out if theres a wat to change controles, so if there there some help would be nice and if not would be nice if we could change that. cause i like zl as l a zr as r when i play.


    besides that its sooo cool thanks for posting it.

    Okay, so I was using melonds for the past 2 days, and it was working fine, i was 2 hours into pokemon platinum, and the nro stopped working (think corrupted?) and all my roms + saves deleted... I'm using exfat, is that an issue from melonds or exfat?

    small edit, can also confirm, melonds was the only thing affected, all my games are fine, other nro's still working, only melonds.

    its exfat, when using homebrew stuff you should stick to fat32
    basically exfat implementation by nintendo is dirty, and outside of official nintendo processes it tend to not write the data properly and corrupt stuff

    its worth the switch. when i upgraded to a 256 card i kept corrupting all my games whenever i would open them, then i made the change and its all better now

    Ahh shit. I got to a part in Bowsers Inside Story where I need to use the DS mic.. :P Cant get past it. Any chance for some customisable button binds? @catlover007 :P

    EDIT: go around it.. Transferred .sav to PC got past the mic part on PC MelonDS then transferred back to Switch, bit of a pain but doable :)

    @ploggy did you get out of bowser yet? I was wondering if it would do the same thing the WiiU did.

    I'm not out of Bowser yet but I haven't had any random crashes or anything, so far its perfect. (apart from the mic :P )

    @FanNintendo looking good :) make sure to set the screen gap to 128px when ingame, it looks bad wrong with the screens pushed together like that ;)
