    Load the Citra core first. Then try to scan a directory with 3DS games.
    If that doesn't work, use playlist buddy.

    However, as I mentioned a few posts earlier, you won't be getting many thumbnails through the RetroArch downloader for 3DS games as there are only just a few box arts on the official libretro thumbnail github repo (which is the source for the RetroArch downloader).
    Most Mario stuff seems to be there but none of the Zelda games for example.

    Also it's strange that those which are there are named differently than they should be according to DAT-o-MATIC.

    Switch ds severely lags on High end games like pokemon and dragon quest for me.
    shouldn't they almost perfect a working ds before trying a 3ds emulator?

    You say "they" like it's one group of people working on all emulators for Switch. M4xw is working on Citra, he has nothing to do with any DS emulators. So the answer is no, there is no reason DS has to be perfected before someone works on 3DS at all.

    I ment it to say if ds is not fully working yet without lag then 3ds will run into roadblocks with bit lag as well.

    i hear citra has more insight of 3ds inner works then other emulators so give high hopes on a decent emulator.

    There are good DS emulator on ARM devices, like DraStic on Android, but it's closed source. The Switch is more than capable of running DS games, so trying to make a 3DS emulator for Switch isn't crazy.

    Some games are running incredible well even at 2x resolution, this is looking promissing.

    Ultra Sun is working pretty well for me, but I'm trying all I can to make PSMD work and well... it runs at half speed. I think if I could lower the depth it would work better. (Using the core.)

    There's no compatibility list. It's just in beta and people have to be patreons to even test it. Bravely Default works, and generally rpgs work well. More heavy 3d games like Mario Kart, Super Mario 3D Land don't work great yet.

    If you're a patreon and have it it's very simple to use it's just like any other retroarch core doesn't even need bios. You're not going to screw anything up, but you should use title redirect and overclocking for better performance. Even then some games won't work great again it's in beta.

    Try the U.S. version of Mario and Luigi Paper Jam. I played it for 1-2 hours and it played well. Other than that I pretty much had the same results of the games I tried.
