    flyinghead is working on MMU/WinCE support, but I wouldn't make any plans on it. It's supposed to be very slow (it's pretty much doing a very low level emulation of a 200mhz not-so-simple computer) and seems HLE is not a possibility. In fact I think it only works on Linux so far (Windows might not be easy to implement).

    no matter what i do i can't get anything to show up after opening Reicast besides "Dreamcast BIOS" and the Settings in the top right corner both which are both unopenable.
    i have my Bios in the "Data" Folder in my "Reicast" folder and my games within "Reicast" (dc_bios and dc_flash)
    I've been holding R and pressing a game to open my homebrew menu and then accessing Reicast.nro from there.
    my Reicast.nro is in my Switch folder.. am i doing something wrong? :S

    Had a dreamcast back in the day with Jet Set Radio and Shenmue. Ah, Memories! Can't wait to try this out.

    Thanks for this, much appreciated!

    if anyone is interested.. I made this forwarder for Reicast that i think looks pretty good.
    you need Reicast.nro in your /Switch folder for this to work properly.

    looking forward to seeing a more stable release in the future, this looks promising! :D

    Just out of curiosity.. How has everyone got Reicast set up?
    as i was originally going to put Reicast.nro in the Retroarch folder with the Cores but figured i'd go with dumping it in with my Switch folder.

    Another rung on the ladder to the Switch becoming the ultimate (portable) emulation system.
    Thanks for all of your hard work.

    Has anyone tried using an overclock module to see if it helps keep framerates more stable?

    And I'm just finding out about this now!?

    Still, will this get integrated with RetroArch sometime down the road that you can forsee? Not that I have anything against standalone emulators, but I know that the Saturn emulator on the ODroid XU4 doesn't have all of the features that the libretro versions of emulators do last I checked when using TheRA.

    it's likely possible since Yabause runs on android... but for SSF (the best one), only on PC

    wait and see but I hope too saturn one day on switch :D

    RetroArch has core for Sega Saturn - Kronos - but it's not available for Switch. Give them a reason to port it to ARM. ;)

    So where does the bios file go? Also do games go in any specific location, or can they be anywhere? Thanks!
