What team are you referring to?
Are you asking if it's possible to emulate PSP or PS1 on the Switch? Not sure what you mean about SNES.
Yeah it's somewhat possible to emulate them on the NES and SNES classic with lots of lag and issues, but it's not even close to being exactly the same
It's actually completely different. The OS is different, and the way the code needs to be written is totally different as well. Hope this answers some of your questions.

Hi
I mean team , to call all the people here.
SNES and news classic consoles can be run emulator. Like .ps1 and PSP. As i. can see .In YouTube.
Yesterday the app. Released by ninitendo is exactly the same of the system of method to emulate games. In those old. Consoles. Just gave a bet. On this

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

Yes ps1 is great via retroNX but... Is necessary more improvements and @m4xw is doing a great job I know. XD

I think he's trying to say if it's possible to emulate PSP and PS1 games with the original Nintendo emulator that was released yesterday, because this emulator is probably based on the emulator of the NES / SNES Mini consoles and on which at least PS1 games can be emulated.

And to be quite frank. Just saying "just go with the different one that works" is making it very easy on the person asking the question.

- Identify if a project is still active.
- Identify if a project has inherent flaws that will make it not supported even within the community (like using pirated Nintendo assets and look at feel).
- Make sure to know what an emulator is and does. (F.e. read the first posting.)
- Make sure to identify the real stumbling blocks.

(Switch using ARM64 hardware, cant run all of the libraries written for ARM32 (Snes Classic, your average Android Smartphone, ...), thats why people are waiting for other projects to write new libraries. Which takes much more time and knowledge that "just" porting a project. Meaning far fewer people can even attempt to do it.

Also -using a stolen Nintendo frontend for their homebrew projects? Strikes me as a bad idea as well, because not many homebrew devs will be into that. But according to mass user feedback, its still, a wonderfull, great and amazing (and currently dead) idea/project.)

That's not how it works.
On the NES/SNES classic, you patch the kernel so that it will load custom code, which then allows you to add more emulators and games.
On the Switch the equivalent would be to install a homebrew emulator .nca or launch emulators through hbmenu (which you can already do)
The emulator itself may be based on the same code, but it's not the emulator you hack on the NES/SNES Classic; it's the system itself. And the Switch is a completely different system, NES/SNES Classic IIRC is Linux based which makes doing this kind of thing much easier.
So basically what you're asking for is just using the NES emulator frontend to launch other installed emulators from the same interface. Which would probably be possible, and it looks nice enough and all, but it'd probably be just as easy to write a nice RetroArch frontend from scratch with far more features.

Thanks for the awnsers till now. And for some people... This is just an idea nothing more, we no need "fight" or have bad feelings. Iam not a dev, just enthusiastic.
I've my hacked switch and possible homebrew till now, because we have great devs, so please continue this great job to give us more and more features. Regards

    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
