    I see the retroarch cores are starting to be ported. over. Also libtransistor has been updated to support 5.xx.

    I was under the impression that there was hardware acceleration.

    Is there any reason why no one has ported retroarch as a whole.

    With your experience maybe you can shine light on this.

    Thank

    i think many of us (myself included) are using libnx which doesn't support it currently, but i will take a look at libtransistor and see what that offers

    in general - its still early days. RetroArch will come for sure. People need time to get familiar with the hardware/dev environment. This scene is going to blow up

    Tried running and it didn’t go so well for me. Then I noticed the files I have don’t match these folder names you have. Hmmmm

    Great work, Postal is a nice classic, Postal 2 would've been even better, but I can't help appreciate the port keep up the good work.

    I'm having the same problem, all my files matched yours except I had two extra files in the game folder. they were 22050_8.sak and 11025_16.sak

    What did you do to make it work? I'm having the same problem you were.

    Cleared out the weird folders I had before and made sure mine matched the paths in the txt file. Did you try removing the extra files you had?

    Yeah, I removed the two extra files. Now I'm going through and renaming all my files with lowercase names like in the txt file. Hopefully that will work.

    Edit: It still didn't work. Everytime I try to start a new game it just kicks me back to the main menu.

    I managed to get this running, and got into a game just fine, but the controls seem completely broken for some reason, and I can't seem to move, or shoot on my own at all... it seems to just do it randomly by itself?

    EDIT: The Demo Option uses scripted input, and the Singleplayer Campaign doesn't... I was using the Demo Option

    That's odd are you using the analog sticks?

    NVM I'm just an idiot, I was running the demo to quickly load into a map, but I guess all demo maps have scripted input, personally I wouldn't know as I never used let alone saw a demo option on the PC version, but once I loaded into a Singleplayer Game I was able to play just fine
