    It has been answered 200 times already. Have you heard of PPSSPP and hrydgard?
    Time required to check on your own with Google -> 10 seconds
    Time required to open a new thread on top of the 2 other millions already existing -> 3 minutes

    Makes sense...

    It might be slow, as far as I know ARM64 dynarecs are more or less non existent and for more demanding consoles dynarec is a must on the Switch, not sure if that also applies to PPSSPP though.

    PPSSSPP has an ARM64 DynaRec.

    I don't get what you are talking about. There is dynarec in lakka so I don't understand what dynarec has to do with anything here. Unless the switch magically gets a different hardware when running lakka. I would guess the reason why PPSSPP doesn't work in Retroarch is because the developers are fokusing on oher things at the moment.

    I wouldn't be suprised if the task of getting the Lakka core to work fine on Horizon is really not that difficult.
    but someone needs to spend their valuable time to do it. priorities..

    DynaRec for ARM64 is non-existent. Lakka's running in 32-bit to use the generic ARMv7-level DynaRec.
    This is why every other 32-bit console emulator onwards are slow under Horizon, but not under OtherOS ("Lakka").

    So yes, this is apt.

    And there's your answer, we're still waiting on ARM64 DynaRec since Horizon can't run 32-bit apps. But also, keep in mind that the implementation of hardware accel (nouveau) is suuuuper unoptimal for 3D-heavy gaming. So until that becomes as mature as the proprietary NVIDIA driver under mainline Linux...

    While I appreciate the hackers efforts on all of this they do, I'm not really looking forward to a PSP emulator that works with like 15% of the games. That's usually the case at least.

    There are so many good RPGs on PSP. I can't wait to play the Final Fantasy remakes on it.

    Will it be worth it though? The PSP resolution was actually "only" great on PSP screen (coming from the PSVita)

    It actually can and there are commercial games which run in 32-bit mode, though the entire homebrew toolset(libnx, the mesa port, …) doesn't support it (and probably never will, since it's not worth it)
