    does anyone know if a n64/gcn emulator is being worked on for hombrew. I've seen many posts about Lakka but i want to know if one is being worked on or is available for homebrew

    Not until a graphics acceleration library is released.

    And yes, people are working on that hardware accelleration driver, but don't expect anything for months.

    Your best bet is to get a separate card to use lakka on. There’s even a lakka file floating around that has a experimental Dolphin (game cube) emulator that somewhat works

    theres a WIP n64 emulator for horizon (the normal firmware) and now it runs about 1-5 fps when you get it to work

    what
    Lakka already has support for N64 games, and it runs pretty decently. Managed to get around 40-60 FPS on Super Smash Bros.

    As said, there is experimental copies of Lakka that have Gamecube support, but I imagine it's at a unplayable state right now.

    what
    Not in the new releases. And even if your battery was affected by the bug, there's a software fix available in Hekate's boot menu. Screen burn-in is still an issue, though. Was playing F-Zero and had the Blue Falcon burned into my LCD screen for an hour...

    I won't be impressed until the day I can emulate an N64 on an emulated Switch, running in a VM.

    I shall coin it Insepulation.

    what
    Yeah. It's probably gonna be awhile until we get proper audio support. Or dock support for that matter.

    I thought they fixed the screen voltage issue?

    what
    They might've. I haven't looked at Lakka recently. If they did, that's awesome. That was one the reasons I was reluctant to mess around with Lakka.
