    This is insane...PS2 has one of the best game libraries next to the SNES and I might be able to have both on one console?!

    Hmm not sure then, Natehaxx said just on page 8 Gran tourismo and kingdom hearts both run fairly well if you barbeque your switch to 2ghz and max gpu. Unless a setting needs changing, maybe you have just got unlucky games. Maybe try disable vsync also?

    I tried all of them. If it means anything, too, I deleted the config files, as well, and overwrote what I was supposed to. Everything else still works fine.

    I just checked both aswell, kingdom hearts and king of fighters 2000-2001 both in .iso format neither work. Using both bootloader and lakka files from the download link on a freshly formatted clean fat32. Black screen then crash back to retroarch. Possibly not enough ram? Idk.

    It sounds like you’re running the Homebrew menu from the photos applet.

    You need to launch it by holding R and opening a game.

    This is so the homebrew can take advantage of the extra RAM games are allocated.

    You’ll need to do this for nearly all emulators, and in the case of RetroArch it’s recommended to restart it from the main menu before launching a new game.

    Edit: My bad, I just realised this isn’t a Switch OS emulator.

    I'm sure it'll eventually get to the point where it's playable. It'd be nice if the guy who made PPSSPP got on board, that worked well super early (seriously like in 2013 {maybe early 2014} games were very playable on decent phones of the time) and it was the only good PSP emulator. The only other option was that Java based one that was really slow and buggy and had a lot of graphical issues.

    Thats ok ;), thanks for the suggestion though. Theres only a couple of ps2 i want to try. I honestly would only use android for that and i like to have a single emulation front for everything :). Maybe i will give it a go to try it out at some point. But the core is completely broken when using it in L4T lakka, tried a fair amount of games and all give the same result, a black screen followed by return homescreen.

    I'm curious if this explains the comment by a dev about the Wii U "not being much more powerful than a Vita". Assuming he was referring exclusively to the main processor.

    IIRC, the Wii U CPU was just 3 slightly faster Wii's with triple-core multithreading and bigger, faster caches.

    Maybe? The Wii U CPU was almost double the speed of the Wii's for each core, which would make it in the ballpark of 5 or 6x more powerful if we total up the 3 cores. I don't understand why we're even comparing a 1.2GHz PowerPC chip with 3 cores to an ARM chip with 3 cores usable and one that runs at 333MHz by default (444MHz is possibly only when wireless is disabled..) honestly. Especially with a GPU that's 550MHz now vs the Vita's 166MHz (or 222MHz without wireless) GPU. Even if GHz is a bit of a myth for comparing things, it's not really a contest and the Wii U is the clear winner. To give you an idea, if we assume the Wii U and PS3 are similar in power, would he really say the PS3 is "not much more powerful than the Vita"?
