    In most cases, if CPU fails to complete a operation, it just aborts it. So that's not likely the case.

    I mean it's worth checking out, also I believe this to be an easter egg to launch under certain conditions.

    Ok update: I have never played NES Golf in my life, and I most definitely played it on the switch. I think the dream theory can be thrown out as the only game I had similar to NES Golf is NES Open Tournament Golf on my 3DS and there's no way I would know how the game even looks without actually looking up NES Golf. So I do not believe that this could have been a fever dream of this game, and this confirms to myself that this actually happened.

    For what it's worth, there are no NES Roms anywhere in the console's NAND/etc where flog could access them, even if you somehow managed to launch flog.

    Anyway, OP's a liar, move on, nothing to see here.

    (Also, qlaunch and flog don't share a titleid, qlaunch (which is the home menu), contains code to launch flog that goes unused -- and even if it were used somehow there would be no NES roms anywhere for flog to load anyway).

    The idea is 'guilty until proven innocent', give us/them proof and we/they will worship you.

    He just dished out evidence of how what you're describing can't be possible.

    I don't know what actually causes it to activate so there's no way to know if that part of the firmware was found is even related

    This was reported on a while back, but the "flog" NES Emulator turns out to have a deeper meaning!

    The emulator contains a version of golf on NES within the code. It's fully complete and everything. Even has support for two players!

    The funny part is, the term "flog" is "golf" spelled backwards. Which adds to the description of the app!

    Now, the interesting part is, the emulator might not actually be unused. According to plutoo, it could be an Easter egg within the firmware. Accessible through normal means.

    Now all we need to find is how to trigger that easter egg!

    Also, interestingly, this has been reported before in the past.

    Poor @Setery, nobody believed the dude.

    Edit: If we end up finding out how to trigger it I may have something to play on the machine until homebrew comes out lol

    I'm actually trying to figure it out right now lmao. I was thinking the Lock Screen Menu could be a start, but there's also the button test menu.

    It'd be awesome if we worked it out. A shame the devs couldn't find it through their tools.

    Why bother, i assume nintendo will just have hamster corporation port VC titles since they did announce arcade archives and been doing neo geo ports since day one of switch release. Honestly I would prefer anyone else than hamster. DOT EMU, CODE MYSTICS, M2, ANYONE ELSE but hamster corp. O_O
