Hey y'all, I made a little homebrew app a while back, Orchestrina, to allow you to play the Legend of Zelda instruments either in a free play mode or in a song-toggle mode that can activate songs from the respective games that the instrument is from.

This isn't a release yet, just an announcement. Now that I've graduated, I have plenty of time to work on it this summer. I wanted to make this thread to announce the port and post updates. If anyone used the original Orchestrina, I will also take feedback on things that could be improved for the Switch version. Stay tuned everyone!

EDIT: I've also confirmed that Ryuzaki_MrL, a huge contributor to Orchestrina, will be helping with the Switch port! Exciting news.

I'd do your switch's pins a favor and install AutoRCM. It can be easily uninstalled and will reduce all that wear and tear you put on your switch shoving the paperclip in all the time. My pins dont even look the same anymore after paperclipping for a day..that can't be good.

Update: I've implemented simple graphics functions allowing me to load and draw bitmaps, including sprites with transparency. The bulk of the Orchestrina code doesn't need to be changed much if at all, so the graphics and audio will be the hardest part.

    It's weird people in their mid 50s-20s seems to like social media more than TikTok and YouTube

    But that's a thing with social media; it creates an illusion of proximity, when in truth everyone is overwhelmed with all the information and all the social demands in the platforms

  • Dark_Phoras @ Dark_Phoras:
    And a lot of people are addicted to the phone, checking social media or talking with someone. Some exercise in the gym while being glued to the phone, not even activity takes them away from it

    And I was like that too, until I left social media. Now sometimes I'm grabbing my phone, opening the browser and thinking: I've seen everything I wanted to see, I don't have a reason to use the phone. And I put it down

    I didn't make case, I made my manoeuver to park the car. But I caught them off-guard, the one ahead hit the brakes and had to jump from the scooter. For a second I thought he would go against the car. They were trying to race through a gap they perceived, thinking I was going to always drive forward

    I guess they learned a valuable lesson, don't assume that real roads are a playground

    Those scooters go 40km/h, and the kids were riding them with no helmets
