    Hey everyone! :-) I've been messing around with lovepotion lately, and have made a bit of progress into having the SNES Classic interface be on Nintendo Switch.



    Lots to go still, and the real bottleneck here is no hardware acceleration. But, once all that is solved, we should be good to go as far as having an application that can launch games you put on your SD card.

    Will update the thread as progress continues.

    Looks fantastic!
    I personally would have preferred the PAL-region SNES mini, but this looks near-identical to the NTSC interface!
    Imagine being able to use this to launch and play SNES roms...
    (Also, I hope the audio file is the lossless .wav from the device, not some compressed rubbish...)

    Wow I can't imagine. This is really amazing.
    I'm looking forward to test it on my own.
    Anyway about getting hardware acceleration just ask people here who familiar with these things. I'm pretty sure everyone will gonna help you.

    Also I'm wondering can we get NES classic as well?
    Thanks a lot.

    Holy crap! Great work. This is exactly what I wanted the Virtual Console to be, and seeing that Nintendo isn't doing it, I'm so glad more talented people than I are.

    Hm... I do think this looks a bit fishy. Like, it's 1:1 to the original mini console, it seems. I'd love to see more proof this isn't just a video on the Switch or something.

    No. The one on my github is for LOVE on WinPCs. The one for Switch is still being worked on and I will get it on my GitHub soon.

    Homebrew app.
