    I don't think David had anything to do with that list. The doc was free for anyone to edit, honestly I'm surprised that it took this long for it to be sabotaged.

    Don't these kinds of docs have roll back versions for this exact reason?

    That was my point, it was done by someone who's impatient who had no business doing it. Unless David said this project is dead it's not dead.

    Hi all,

    Is their multiplayer support ?
    I can set two controllers in REICAST settings, but the second pair of joycons isn't detected.

    Anybody tried it ? (Especially toy commander :))

    Seems to work perfectly. Can even run GDIs and CHDs. Needs some work, but so far, can run a few Games with almost no Issues.

    All Settings are Base from where I got it from. Site has Switch XCI in it and has Torrents
    Boot to BIOS - Stuck at DC Splash
    Capcom vs SNK - GDI - Graphical Issues for Characters.
    Capcom vs SNK 2 - GDI - Same as CvS
    Crazy Taxi - CDI and CHD - Seems to run almost perfectly. In-Menu Music gets accelerated. Some slight Graphical Issues when the System says Saving Data and Minor Graphical Issues In-Game
    Crazy Taxi 2 - CHD - Same as CT1
    Daytona USA - CDI - Some Graphical Issues
    Game Cheat Discs - CDI/Bin+Cue - Can be run. But no way to Change Discs.
    Hydro Thunder - CHD - Wont run past the SEGA Logo
    Marvel vs Capcom 2 - CHD - Graphical Issues for Fighters
    Mortal Kombat Gold - CHD - Almost Unplayable. Major Graphical Issues and Slowdowns for Videos
    Sega GT - CDI - Graphical Issues in Menu, otherwise, seems Playable if you can get past the Menus
    Virtua Fighter 3 - CDI - Minor Graphical Issues In-Game. However, you can not see the Options Menu properly

    Am having this same problem. Would love to play power stone 2 multiplayer!! Instead i get two cursors controlled by 1 controller and no way to have the second device control input.

    For Power Stone 2 multiplayer you might be better off playing Power Stone Collection using PPSSPP on Retroarch (soon to also be standalone like Reicast)

    PPSSPP is working on a Standalone for the Switch? Or is it being Ported?

    How does this do multiplayer? The game is coded for only single player or ad-hoc multiplayer. I want 2-4 people on a single console with multiple controller support. Is this possible on PPSSPP? I tried that before reicast no luck.

    Ubuntu-L4T is gonna be your best option for that atm, lakka-switch for portable stuff only (would love to see this baby up with everything L4T supports and the less overhead lakka supposedly has compared to full-on Ubuntu). Unfortunately, we haven't heard anything from davidgf about this version. The Reicast team had a Q&A session a few weeks ago where I wish I was there to ask them about this port of the emulator to the Switch, but I had to work another day at my 2nd shift retail job.

    Such joy.

    Ok so, regarding REICAST couch multiplayer and if I understand well, there are currently NO WAYS to use multiple controllers, am I right ?

    Still nothing from the actual developer here, so not believing anything about cancellation until I see it.
