    Controllers are easy to fix, will look into it soon. Also note that this is not using JIT for the audio cpu (arm) which is supported in android. Im looking to enable that as well on the Switch, which should give a significant speed boost. Im confident with the optimizations that I excluded in this releasr it could run at x2 thd current speed easily, even at 1080p :)
    I will also check GL4 support, which makes transparency sorting pixel perfect.

    Nice @davidgf , thanks for your work. Can't wait to play Propeller Arena, Powerstone, Soulcalibur and Wacky Races with friends. So many good memories of
    playing the Dreamcast multiplayer :)

    You're such a tease, you know that?

    . . . What's next, making Naomi (1)/Atomiswave games work?

    Not to derail; that's NAOMI 2.
    And the reason I say NAOMI 1 and Atomiswave is that support is already built into the libretro port of reicast.

    "Bizarre Creations was acquired by Activision in 2007 – a deal which saw its IP scatter across the industry. Sega holds IP rights to action-shooter The Club, while EA owns Boom Boom Rocket. Bizarre retains the Geometry Wars rights while Microsoft owns Project Gotham and all its assets.

    Project Gotham Racing, the spiritual successor to Metropolis Street Racer, had bolstered the original Xbox’s launch line-up along with fellow blockbuster Halo. The series went from cult-hit status to global fame, and became a key product in Microsoft’s seminal online service, Live.

    Shane Kim, the former boss of Microsoft Game Studios, said in 2008 that Project Gotham Racing would return at some stage.

    In 2005 Bill Gates described Project Gotham as his favourite video game.

    Develop has contacted Microsoft for comment."

    I always heard this all over the internet, no idea... Maybe he changed his mind after 2005? :) However that game is way older than 2005 so maybe it was his favourite game and then when Project Gotham came out was his favourite game, who knows... Maybe he only liked it when it came for the Xbox360 PGR 3 or maybe it could be the 2nd from the Xbox original, who knows... All I know is Bill Gates have a good taste on racing games :grog:.

    All I know is they don't make any good game like MSR\Project Gotham racing games (KUDOS) and Sega GT and I also miss Gran Turismo since GT SPORT is more like a Project Cars than an actual GT even though what's done is done pretty good, but, its missing the crazy awesome career that it always had, the tuning parts, the racing car conversions, car washing, the oil change, the car number list..............

    Put the .gdi and other files in a folder(per game) in your designated roms spot. All of my games are like that and work just fine.

    It is possible to get out of there despite a ring missing. Jump on one of those machines and then dash off of it and you should eventually get up.

    The Forza Horizon games are excellent! I do wish there were more arcadey track based games like PGR or even a good Need for Speed out there.

    So I was wondering if you guys can tell me what it means by dont reicast needs more memory so dont start it from a certain place?? Does that mean dont go into the homebrew menu and open the nro like all other homebrews??

    You need to access the homebrew menu and then Reicast through an installed nsp by holding R and start the game which gives you the extra ram. If you just go straight to album you'll get system crashes.

    You can also use the reicast.nro forwarder (around ten pages back) and not have to do that, or make individual game forwarders (nro2nsp).
