    On that note, I want to know if there's a way I can reformat some drives I formatted as ext4 back to something Win10 can read/format? Because right now, I can't format these drives I used for transferring all of my stuff off of my main computer, and we're talking higher capacity mobile storage, not some 4GB flash drive that a middle schooler can only afford!

    Sure, you just have to reformat them to fat32 or NTFS from a Linux computer. So you can do it from your switch or if you have a live USB for your computer you can do that. I recommend using GParted, it's included in the image or I posted a link to a live USB image of just GParted in the OP.

    Thanks very much for the info!!! I come to a workaround yesterday ;P after much much juggling around, I was trying to run dolphin and after dropping a wbfs file onto a FAT32 usb and running it through the dock I came to the conclusion that the later dolphin on ubuntu doesn't support wbfs(weird because lakka seems to.. and its an earlier release i think), I then converted it to ISO and tried EXfat before having my USB stick realising ubuntu doesn't natively support the format ;P, finally coming to the realisation that NFTS stored ISOS were the solution lol. I can confirm dropping items from the usb worked for me :).

    Can you by chance make a torrent of this? It continually errors out for me on GD

    Try a different web browser. This kept happening to me on chrome, switched to safari and no problems whatsoever.

    I'll look into it, it's a busy weekend for me but I'm gonna try to put out the image with Gzdoom and Reicast at some point, maybe I'll try it for that in addition to the Drive

    Small question, is it possible to disable the mouse cursor when I'm not running something like RetroArch? Because when I was running Dolphin, the cursor was flying around while I was here playing a game and it was distracting, to say the least. Just wondering for when I go to try this out when you release the next image.

    Yeah I actually added that too, you'll be able to press in the left joystick (L3) to toggle mouse control

    Cool. Any idea when the new image might come out? Is it possible to just update an older image you have? - I just managed to download the latest one.

    NOOBS3 is now up as a torrent link! Keep in mind that the torrent will be slow at first (or may take a while to work while the torrent trackers update). In the meantime I am also uploading to Google Drive and will post that DL link soon.

    Also FYI I changed the mouse buttons in addition to making L3 toggle mouse controls.

    @nacimem I'll look into it for the next build. I think you need an NVIDIA graphics card on your PC to use it, correct? So I may be unable to test.

    Awesome thanks. Any chance you could post your retroarch config here? For some reason it's going super slowly for me. Like 33 fps.

    Did you activate 2GHz first? Just double click the "2GHz" desktop icon, put in your password (switch) and then leave that window open before starting retroarch.

    Also Google Drive link is up!

    No I didn't try that. Is that the only way it runs full speed?

    AV5nQTZ. Weird. I'll try it. Also: any idea what the name of the joycons is when they're together? I'm working on getting this working and am soo close I just cant use the controllers.

    They've typically just been called "Joycons" for me. However if they're not showing up, you could just leave mouse controls on as a workaround (the DPAD acts as arrow keys etc.)

    On Dolphin they're listed as "Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons" but I can try just "Joycons". With the mouse controls I'm not sure I know how I'd map the axes to the control ini.
