    A port of Exult (Ultima 7 BG/SI engine) to the Switch. It worked pretty well on the PSP and could be played on the Vita via Adrenaline, but seeing it on a bigger screen would be even better.

    A Night Light Mode. I don't know you guys, but that blue light is painful. People who study on notes or Pdfs know that feeling, after few hours the eyes feel very tired. If it had a blue light filter i'd start using my Switch to study too.
    Playing the night is bad too. Because of that ultra powerful blue light, i (at least me) don't feel sleepy anymore, and that's bad. I don't know if adding a filter is hard or impossible, but that would help everyone, mainly people who work or study the whole day on a Pc. In that case, i wouldn't even interested to play 5-10 mins before going to bed.
    Wonder why Nintendo didn't add this feature, it should be a must (imo), mainly if your Console is bought by many teenagers\kids.

    While its virtually impossible to spoof a certificate (they're locked behind a 2,048 character key and by the time this gets cracked, your grandchildren will be playing the New Nintendo Switch Pro XL & Knuckles), we can simulate LAN play over a VPN: https://gbatemp.net/threads/official-switch-lan-play.520912/

    Oh, that's really awesome. And here I thought that they would implement something like they did for DS and Wii games. Let's hope that in the future, they also include Splatfests for Splatoon 2.

    So I don't know if this already goes under the "Themes" entry under Media. but I REALLY want a HomeBrew that would allow us to change our Custom themes on the Switch, by selecting from a range of themes that we have already put on the SD Card.

    Also, I don't know if this is possible, but if this could be achieved without having to restart the console, that would be freaking awesome.

    Is it possible to create an homebrew, or whatever, that would let me stream from my switch with no capture card?

    Is there an homebrew (or another way) to mount a network drive as a folder in the micro SD? I think it will be very useful for retroarch.

    No there isn't at this point. I guess a sysmodule/kip could do it in theory.

    I have a request:

    FTP transfers seem to be capped at a rather measly 3.5MB/s (at least on my system), when I'm pretty certain the NAND (and most of the SD cards) can handle 30+.

    Can we get a way to do File transfers over USB? Or possibly an SMB server app?

    Some way to use Wireless/Wired keyboards in RetroArch to tinker around in DOSBOX with. Also, a port of the most recent version of DOOMRL with the tiles from ChaosForge, it is open source so shouldn't be too hard, willing to contribute to a bounty as well.

    I haven't tried it so i wouldn't know but it sure does support all formats you want, just try it out and if there's no portait mode, just suggest its addition to the author (joel), he's always trying to improve it...
