    It seems like the nightlies are gone because of the lack of new nightlies being posted. The old ones are automatically deleted so I'd assume that they should be back soon.

    No new nightlies? Is that temporary or did the team call it quits on the 3DS?

    Gambia, The
    The last available nightly I believe, was from 19.10.2017.
    I have the impression that no improvements/changes were made in the last nightlies for 3DS.

    what is the advantage of upgrading to 11.6 compared to older versions of 11.x?

    If you have problems since 11.6, try to restore to a previous version, if you have an existing backup. I had once a similar situation and could restore my system by a previously created backup to a previous state.

    I think a change I made on 19th broke the 3DS nightlies. Sorry.

    I reverted the change earlier today, so there should be a new nightly tonight, 25th.

    Metal Slug 5 will boot, but it'll take a long time to do so.

    Well, no nightly so no idea what has happened to the 3DS builds.

    I'm not sure if i'm just doing this wrong or something, but does the main retroarch.cia work? I was kind of looking forward to having all the emulators in one single .cia but no matter how i seem to do it, its just a black screen when i launch it. I've looked around for an answer the past few days but I can't find one.

    To be honest, i can seemingly not get any of the emulators to work... atleast not for MAME. The 2000 and the 2003 one crash about 15 seconds after loading into the menu and moving around.

    The file named retroarch.cia is nothing but a forwarder (think of a shortcut) for your other emulators. You still need to have the other emulators installed if you want to use it. As for the mame emulators, I have always found them to be quite buggy. I personally don't use them.

    Oh i see. That makes a lot more sense. Although it still does nothing with the mame emulators installed but that's honestly probably just because they're buggy.

    The xmb menu still causes crashs in the last nightly version (10-30-2017), also it seems that the performance of the retroarch interface has waned compared to the version 10-16-2017. (Loading cores and games (psxrearmed))

    So does this work on B9S? (it doesn't say in the OP). I am running Luma on B9S and regardless of core every time I try to load a ROM it crashes my 3DS and then powers off. I tried the nightly and the release builds.

    Yes, it works on B9S 1.3 and Luma3DS 8.1.1. To prevent crashes you have to change the menu driver settings from xmb to rgui.
