    Get a VM and try it, out of sheer curiosity. If it's malware, no biggie since it's sandboxed.

    Obvious you join this gbatemp just to ask this ? I hope not. Anyway, you are new to GBATEMP.. LISTEN:

    Don't believe any emulators that released like PS4, Nintendo Switch, XBOX One and soon XBOX Scorpio. None of them are existing for an emulators at all. They are doing that out of cruel and to caught you with virus to damage your PC/MAC. JUST DONT! NO newer Console emulators at all. NONE!

    Link? Wanna look at the author, as well as anything else on the repo. Even though I know it is fake since there is no source code.

    I did not post a URL on purpose. The naive might click blindly. If you want to find the Github project it's not that hard.

    If you won't give us a link tell us what you searched.

    Or give us the name of the author. Otherwise we can't be sure you aren't the scammer trying to get us to believe this (could be private repository).

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Sorry for double post but I found it.This actually does have source.

    If anybody want's a link DM me, because now I feel just like the OP and don't want to give out a link that has a virus in it (potentially)

    Incomplete url: thelucyclub/Project-RED

    Lol at .dll files in the src folder, and lol at .bin files with plaintext numbers in SwitchLib 2.0 :rofl2:

    Who wants to try? Maybe it works :P

    Searching "Project RED" in github results in 100 pages of stuff.

    Now, Nintendo Switch emulator got me what I wanted.

    Hence the word "trying". Never said it was succeeding.

    Ah, the good ol' bios scam. I wish fake emulators would try something new because that's really getting old. It's as old as time.
