    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.

    Looking forward to playing Super Mario 64 on the go (without touch controls) and trying out some new games.

    Is this just part of Lakka or is it actually an installable title on the Home Menu? (Genuinely Curious) Cause the screenshot looks like it might be Lakka.

    It's a homebrew application.

    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.

    They got dolphin running on Lakka on Switch. So it is possible!

    We are planning to look into that, can't estimate performance yet.

    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.

    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.
