    I know it's probably a long way off... but is it possible we could get hd texture support in the future?

    Well my findings so far

    I personally saw no difference between nsp with sxos and atmosphere using the loader ini and pokemon quest.

    I am happy to report sin and punishment works woo hoo!

    Even using pokemon quest i still crash at level 2 of starfox

    Fzero is playable for me but music sounds terrible. So not really fully playable because of this.

    All in all i am so happy and thankful for this. I got goosebumps seeing the dk crew rap and thinking back to when nes played like crap. We have come along way. Please let us all share truthful info and work together to make this software truly shine!

    What setting do you have for F Zero? Cause using the recommended settings from the 1st beta released, I’m getting 60fps, 1080p, no problems with sound, at stock clock speeds. Same settings and results with Mario 64, Wacerace, Starfox, 1080 Snowboarding, Mario Kart, Blast Corps, Ocarina, Majora, Ridge Racer, Snowboard Kids 1-2, Tony Hawk 1-3... more but can’t remember.

    Are you getting stuttering with your settings? Are you overclocking?

    I said stock clock speed, so no over-clocking with the games I mentioned. It stutters maybe 1-2seconds at most and usually just at the beginning of a level, race, stage, or performing new move. But aside from those 1-2 seconds of stutter it’s full speed.

    the best way to Play F-Zero in 60 FPS glory and 1080P is to use the Dynaric config that m4xw provided, or change a few settings inside the core options, you must run retro arch from an NSP, i am using their provided NSP and have Mario 64* and F-Zero X running at 60 frames

    f-zero will have sound stutter in menu, its clean when you start racing.
    Mario 64 may have slowdown at first few minutes, i think the Core is decoding something after that the game runs perfect

    you have to overclock to 1581MHz, without overclock don't expect full speed, we are not there yet

    also if you said you have sin & punishment working, you are not using dynamic recompile, it doesn't run on it
    or maybe my copy which is patched with English Menus isn't supported yet like all other English translated roms i have, none works

    i want ray man 2 to work but no luck yet, still slow on pure interpreter

    *Mario 64 @60FPS is a patched rom

    Take the secret exit on Starfox where you fly through the blue things and it doesn't crash

    Latest nightlies you don’t even need over clock with games I mentioned... all at 1080p and full speed, meaning fzero 60fps. Just use dynarec option and follow the recommended settings by the developer.

    Could I get you to share your config file, or cut and paste the mupen settings from it?

    By recommended settings you mean the txt file shared by m4xw earlier?

    Do you have a link to the nightlies? I’m having trouble finding it. :(

    I have no clue how you get 60fps in fzero if you are using a patched sm64 rom that makes sense i will look for that. Care to share your settings for fzero? This is a big problem i feel here people making statements but no like pointers in terms of settings etc. i am using the config posted with the dynarec. It is on when i play sin and punishment and i am happy to provide video proof but i wonder if maybe its not like active? Is there anyway to confirm other than the cpu setting in options? 60fps in sm64 would be a dream come true can you link me in pm?

    my settings for F-Zero X are in screenshots

    ^ this is your Core Options that you can access after you run a Game, if you lower the screen resolution you can get better results in most games.
    make sure you have your Core set to: Dynamic Recompiler
    or use m4xw .CFG File, its already setup

    F-Zero doesn't go full screen for me, unless i used a game shark code or changed the Video Resolution in Retroarch Settings to Custom

    save your settings for the game
    Overclock your Switch to 1581Mhz
    restart Retroarch and have fun
