    Had a chance to test the new nightly's with the new Netplay updates.. The WiiU can connect to Switch when its set as host pretty consistently with the Fceumm core but I cant connect my Switch to WiiU when the WiiU's set as host?
    When it does connect though it's perfect, no lag, no stuttering, but I bet being in the same network helps ALOT :P

    So far I havent been able to get FBA to work and snes is far too slow, Snes2010 and Snes9x are the only Snes core on Switch atm. perhaps it would be faster with Snes9x2002 or 2005, I'll have to see if any of the Switch Emu Devs are willing to compile them on Switch :P

    Hello a noob question, may I use Retroarch Channel and throw the HBL at the same time, or should I use just one of them? I mean, perhaps today I use the channel and for some reason tomorrow I use throw the HBL.

    You can use both methods (through launcher or load core through hbl)

    I need to ask you guys a favor once the next nightlies roll off the presses -

    We need to see if netplay rooms work on WiiU.

    Try this once the nightlies are ready:
    1) Start a netplay room on another device (could be anything from RetroArch Android to RetroArch PC, doesn't matter - something that is on your LAN).
    2) Then go to RetroArch WiiU and see if you can find the room, and connect to it.

    Just to clarify
    LAN rooms are clearly identified, like this.

    Online play seems awesome! Shame I'm a fossil when it comes to those things so I doubt I'll ever be able to enjoy it.

    Thanks for your hard work guys. Sure I will test later my Wii U and my Android phone :)

    Edit: Thanks Netplay worked!
    -Used the latest Nightly (12/10/2018)
    -Used the game "Street Fighter 2 - World Warriors" (SNES), with core SNES9X
    -Used my android phone as a host, noted my IP
    -Connected to that IP with my Wii U, and my Wii U immediately displayed game screen and I was able to challenge as Player 2
    There are just some minor network lag.

    Hi,
    is there some how-to to get Amiga core working on Wii U?
    I have put those(guide from libretro-uae on github):
    To use disk and WHDLoad games with this core you'll need the following kickstart roms, rename them to the given name and copy the file to RetroArch system directory.

    It is critical to use kickstarts with the right MD5, otherwise the core might not start.

    Name Description System MD5
    kick34005.A500 Kickstart v1.3 (Rev. 34.005) Amiga 500 82a21c1890cae844b3df741f2762d48d
    kick40063.A600 Kickstart v3.1 (Rev. 40.063) Amiga 600 e40a5dfb3d017ba8779faba30cbd1c8e
    kick40068.A1200 Kickstart v3.1 (Rev. 40.068) Amiga 1200 646773759326fbac3b2311fd8c8793ee




    into system folder, but Retroarch freezes with black screen after loading core.
    If there is some tutorial i will be gratefull.....

    This has always been the case WiiU Network speeds are naff :P though I think I remember Quark saying it was possible to boost the WiiU network speed for Homebrew?

    I've always had that problem too.
    I'm not sure why that is.

    Though I can't say if the latest nightlies have that problem, since I haven't tested downloading withe most reent ones (from a week up to today that is).
    If someone else can confirm that with the latest nightlies, please be sure to mention it!

    Just finished downloading the latest nightlies and timed downloading the FBA Core with the Online Updater on both WiiU and Switch...
    WiiU (Downloading FBA Core) = 3 Mins
    Switch (Downloading FBA Core) = 13 Secs

    Lol, quite the difference..

    That's cool! I'm going to test too right now!
    Assets used to take too long to download (maybe 30min+), let's see how long it would take now.

    I was comparing the the time difference between Switch and WiiU :P
    The WiiU Network speed is the same as it was before :/

    Thanks unfortunately I'm trying the nightlies OCT-14, downloading "Assets" still takes too long.
    It's been almost 15 min and I'm still at 50%.

    My Wifi bandwidth is fairly fast, almost 5 MByte/s.
