    Yup, it looks very nice, but I'm playing Dreamcast for nostalgia, so I'll stick to the classic boot up.

    Hmm.. its a bit difficult to get used to the graphics of Sonic Adventure.Makes me sorta cherish the DX version for GC instead. Oh well. I'm thankful in the end that Reicast exists.

    I’m kinda new to using reicast, what option do I change under the video tab to increase the resolution?

    So I eventually did get Dreamcast running on my Switch, but it came at a cost, as you know I really didn't know how to get it to work, and I ended up formatting my SD card, before copying everything over to a folder on my desktop of course ( : however all my digital content that was downloaded before is no longer downloaded and I can't redownload it cause I was banned from the Nintendo store not long after I hacked my switch a year or so ago, at least I only had 3 or 4 digital games on there, the rest are physical titles, most of those work. At the very least I have a backup switch I can buy those games on that one, or I could go searching for NSP's, but that's very risky. So for anyone wanting to install reicast on their switch, download Nro2NSP program, fill out the application with the title and and author, then where it says sd/applications, that's where you type in the path, which for me was /switch/reicast. Hope that helps ppl in the future, on the bright side I now have argon CFW, so I'm able to boot into Atmosphere, Reinx, Hekate, or SXOS, which is useless for me cause I don't have a license for it. Anyway, after Nro2NSP has finished, you should be able to find it in the folder of the NRO2NSP application, then just drag it to the root of your SD, and install it via Goldleaf.

    I asked this many pages back. Doesn't look like it's possible in the Reicast settings. Only way would be to somehow edit a cfg document if there even is one. I'll have a look.

    Edit: There's absolutely nothing. It'd have to implemented in a future version.

    Is there any way to get this working on SXPro? I can only launch homebrew via the album with it so the emulator keeps crashing

    Is there any chance of fixing the game problem Skies of Arcadia and the lack of letter in the dialogues?

    The problem is in all languages.

    Hold R and start a switch game and it will take you to homebrew menu. Launch Reicast from there. Works fine with SX.

    New version is being worked on to fix texture problems you'll have to be patient.

    Just wanted to know if anyone can get past the casino with tails in Sonic adventure? Trying to see if my copy is corrupted or something or it's just because of the alpha, because I beat every other characters story with no issue

    You dont. Games are at the edge of full speed playability anyhow. (Most/Many are full speed.) so increasing resolution would only serve to make games run worse.

    Why wait, when you can play the PC port? Look it up at MyAbandonware

    I don't think the console is GPU bound, you can try running games that run like ass at low res and they still run like ass, so increasing the resolution shouldn't impact performance that much.

    I can't get out of the sewer after getting the shoe upgrade. Something seems to be up with ring pathing. It's pretty interesting to see these kinds of functional bugs instead of just graphical glitching.
