    Thank you for this amazing emulator. I am playing Gunlord on this. It is a 2D game, and it seems to work pretty much perfectly!

    Tony Hawk 2 has the text issue after a while, but I've played it so many times it doesn't affect the gameplay for me.

    Neo XYX from NG Dev also seems to work perfectly. Nice to play with Flipgrip in Screenmode Arcade (Tate)

    Fast Striker and Last Hope (Pink Bullet Edition) also work perfectly it seems.

    Dux 1.5 has lots of graphics errors.

    Rez runs very well too.

    MvsC2 has corrupted fighter gfx (backgrounds look ok).

    Cosmic Smash also works flawlessly! Amazing!

    I love me some Cosmic Smash.

    Criminal that it never came to U.S. even though people probably would have ignored it.

    Gunlord X (extra bosses + other stuff) was recently released as a Switch eShop game FYI. Also it rocks. :yay:

    I think both it and MAYBE CvS2, (I think MVC2's sprites displayed correctly for me if I remember right) have MissingNo. as the character sprites for right now.

    *sighs*

    Then why am I not getting any help in the Linux 4 Tegra (or whatever the Nvidia program is called) thread in regards to why there's no cores for reicast on RA? To be honest, if Ubuntu gives me the ultimate convenience on-the-go and couch homebrew experience that money can currently buy, I wouldn't be here, but goddamn does no one want to be helpful around here. I understand why because I work a second shift job and am posting late at night when people (on my side of the world) are in bed or working late at night.

    There's no developments going on right now, and while I appreciate all of the hard work that goes into everything homebrew for the Switch, I will go with the best option available to me. It's why I went with THERA 3.0 and ORA before it for my ODroid XU4 as opposed to that more convenient way to set up RetroPie on an ODroid XU4 (again, the name eludes me, nothing against the work they've done, hell, they may have gone and improved it since I last tried it); I just don't care who gets to the top first, you know?

    If Horizon is going to be top dog in everything except for N64 in my experience, that's a win as I don't have much nostalgia for the N64. Bring the torches and pitchforks for the bonfire of marshmallows.

    If lakka eventually becomes top dog, it will be worth the wait. If GC can be run on the Switch, great. It'd blow my mind if Wii was playable as well and preferably with the Switch Joy-Cons motion controls which doesn't require a fucking bar with an overly-long and awfully fragile cable to be mounted above on top of a TV (you're fucked if it's some of the flatscreens I've seen and you have a soundbar). Otherwise, waiting for dock, wireless controller, sleep mode support, and PS1 emulation on the level of RA on Horizon (this is a weird one, as N64 DEFINITELY runs better on lakka than RetroArch on Horizon in my experience) before using this on the regular (more efficient battery usage would be nice, but that could just be me).

    Ubuntu, sounds like it's more complete feature-wise. Just have to git gud with Ubuntu now that I've some potential utility for it in my hands atm. (might try Proton later on the road) Again, why can't I download any cores if they don't come with the RetroArch download via the Terminal command on their website? All of the cores were there the other night when I first set it up wrong because I deleted too much and put the files in the wrong place with the first installation? (thought the L4T update folder was to replace some other files already on the Ubuntu installation, a dumbass mistake, but a mistake nonetheless) Does it have something to do with the Final Burn Alpha nonsense that went down and with the introduction of Final Burn Neo? (when the FBA core I already have on every version of RA I currently have installed on all of my devices plays everything I expect it to anyways)

    Also, a method for MUGEN to be on the Switch is something to get excited about, don't know about you. OpenBOR was ported to the Switch via Horizon, why not its tournament fighter equivalent?

    All seems wildly off-topic, but MUGEN is closed source, so no ports unless the creators themselves decide to make an official aarch64 linux port (unlikely).

    I know XMUGEN (the port to the OG Xbox) was done using Linux to run it from what I read up on it, but we'll see. Results are what matter at the end of all undertakings.

    Point is, the OG xbox ran on a 32bit chip, not Arm.
    Think of it like a huge underpowered PC, but exclusive for games. That's why it was theorized long ago that it wouldn't actually take that long to emulate due to hardware but mostly due to encryptions.

    It seems to have gotten lost in all the dumb, but since a few people liked it I'm gonna ask again - Is Reicast planned to come to retroarch? I don't know how these things work.

    This is an official port made by the official dev. So probably not, but then again, I don't know what goes into making cores compatible exactly with RetroArch. I can't imagine it'd be too tough unless if the relationship between lr-reicast and the main Reicast emulator is like that of lr-dolphin and Dolphin 5.0 with Ubershaders, Qt interface improvements, and probably some other wizardry I haven't been made aware of at this point in time.

    Wow, Gunlord X is totally amazing. There's no need to play Gunlord on Reicast then since Gunlord X is out. But it is still nice to have Neo XYX and the other games from the same devs working in Reicast. And then there's Cosmic Smash, that's just so cool to play on a handheld.
