Not much for Switch, but that 50hz support has me looking at those Chinese handhelds for the first time. Wonder if any of them is known for best Amiga emulation...

Wish they would fix the issue with mame2003 and 2003+ and using cheats.dat. Maybe it's low on the priority list but I used to love going back to those old (and impossible) games and using cheats to play through to the end. Ghosts and Goblins, for instance.

Thought I'd mention this because I'm not the only one with this issue (there is a current open github issue around it https://github.com/libretro/mame2003-plus-libretro/issues/894)), but there's been some kind of issue with the mame2003 (and plus) cores since after 1.7.8 or so...or maybe after 1.8.0. I'm not sure exactly when it started, but the issue is that roms seemed to take longer to load up and if you used cheats.dat, you'd just end up hardlocking your switch.

I went back to 1.7.8 (just swapped out the mame2003+ core but kept the other 1.9.2 files) and the issues are gone. ROMs load up faster and cheats working again. Much thanks to @Badablek for providing the 1.7.8 files!
