    It's a quick port of PCSX-ReARMed, so currently it work with interpreter about half speed (maybe more), no sound, no menu.
    Port based on libnx.

    What works:
    • Full screen image output
    • Controls
    • Memcard saves
    • FPS meter (but it bound with screen updates so with frameskip = 1 it may display not real emulation speed value xD)

    Installing:
    Download & unpack zip, put pcsx_rearmed folder to SD://switch (path to nro should be SD://switch/pcsx_rearmed/pcsx_rearmed.nro)

    Configuration:
    Place game images to pcsx_rearmed folder, then manually edit pcsx_rearmed.cfg file
    Code:
    game = test.bin; // just replace 'test.bin' with image name here 
    frameskip = 0; // 0 or 1
    
    Todo:
    • Dynarec
    • Sound
    • GUI file selector, menu
    • and much more xD

    Sources:

    Running Oddworld. It actually runs better than the beetle_psx core in retronx and has more consistent performance and no weird video threading/aspect ratio error artifacts lol :D

    Extremely excited about this! Great Job, and can't wait for more!

    ... why is it every PS1 emulator on Switch has no sound... aside from Lakka using bluetooth... ugh...

    Is it likely we get full emulation with sound and perfect speed? I want this so bad.playing MGS in handheld mode sounds amazing.

    Freaking nice! Tested Tomba 2, Spyro and Dino Crisis 2. Everything runs nice (around 25 stable fps). Having blankspaces in the name makes the .nro to crash (at least for me)
