  • Game scanning.
  • Split joycon support.
  • Core downloader.
  • Runahead support.
  • Networking support.
  • Touchscreen support.

The RetroNX UI (nxrgui) still needs to be added to upstream.

Wasn't this already posted?
I remember a thread about the nightly builds, but it was updated accordingly after the official update was released.
Only the title was updated, and no content was added. I checked to make sure it hadn't been reported first.

So is it installable to the Home Menu or does it still require the Homebrew Launcher?
I'd rather wait for Homebrew that can be installed to the Home Menu (Also allows you to take more advantage of the sytem)
It requires the homebrew launcher. Although I hope an NSP version will be made.

Dolphin ehhhhhhhhh maybe
PPSSPP for sure will be a thing
They got dolphin running on Lakka on Switch. So it is possible!

So how is general performance of this? I understand that Lakka is better in performance because it doesn't have the overhead of Horizon and possibly better access to the hardware, but it also has limitations right now like no speaker audio, wireless controllers, or docked mode, so for the time being, this would be great for EmuNAND.

Man.. can’t wait for Reicast!
It's probably only me, but did anyone else initially read that as "Man.. can't wait for Racist!" automatically? :blink:

On topic, I tried one of the old nightlies on my old (now sold) Switch when they still used the generic rgui theme, and I hated it. @m4xw, are the pics in the OP of the actual application, or of Lakka? What does the RetroNX theme actually look like? If it works with the xmb theme, I would be ecstatic.
