Hope to see Kronos Core (Saturn) for Switch it supports STV arcades and Saturn which just like flycast can emulate naomi and atmosiwave aracde.

I forgot to update about the Saturn Retroarch i figured out because 1.8.9 retroarch.nro has best speed than after 1.9.0 to up i tested the saturn core 1.9.9. with 1.8.9 Retroarch.nro it still runs great but sad that will not work with .chd so stuck with .cue and .bin at least it will read it and make out a playlist in Saturn :)
Lakka YabaSanshiro has much better performance than HOS

is it hard to install Lakka?? does it drain the battery quick than regular? From what I have read in Lakka you need to get pc connect your switch enthernal internet to get the cores. Im afraid to get banned also overheat i think im good here with regular, just pray for yabasanshiro core come to regular core.

No, you just drag n' drop and play.. The only requirement is fat32 formatted sd card. Lakka RA is superior to HOS (with minor exceptions). You can read more in lakka thread. Since lakka 3.0 (now 3.3) released with proper sleep/dock support i pretty much abandoned HOS RA cause every core i use is better in lakka. Afair for saturn you'll need 1.7 oc and most importantly vsync off, but i only have Sega Rally, can't be sure about other games, but you can test easily yourself since you can share the same files with HOS RA (saves, bios, roms etc.).

lakka is only better if you play docked otherwise you will run into vsync issues and no it won't get you banned using it

What vsync issues? Are you talking about yabasanshiro specifically? Cause i've been using lakka for the past months both in dock and handheld a lot and had little to no problems at all. The only obvious problem i see for now (and it still exists) is related to weird shenanigans with swanstation/duckstation and pulse audio driver where some psx games slow down a lot for no particular reason and you have to switch to alsathread (which kinda breaks dock audio). Other than that, i had almost zero problems with psx, dc, n64, arcades, psp, gc and the rest.

all cores its not my imagination either even the people working on it acknowledge it as a tegra issue its just only a handheld issue. it makes the games more jittery than they would be on HOS

i might be blind then, but its fine :)
its more noticeable in 2d games I use Aladdin for snes to test myself but basically comparing any 2d game between Lakka and HOS (comparing Lakka docked to Lakka handheld should be noticeable as well) will show you how bad it is. in 3d games its more noticeable when the screen is scrolling parasite eve being a good example for that.

i play lots of 2d arcades with FBNeo and sega genesis games and never noticed anything out of ordinary or worse compared to HOS RA.

think you need to do a proper comparison then use Sonic 2 for example its far less smooth looking on Lakka
i just think you have high standards, i tried sonic 2 with PicoDrive and it was absolutely fine for me, 100% playable.

Edit: yeah, i see what you mean, in HOS its a bit smoother, but it makes 0 difference to me in terms of playability.
