    The GBAtemp Homebrew Bounty is a massive competition that aims to boost the Switch homebrew scene by giving rewards to a selection of the best homebrew projects. This third month, we reward Switch emulators, that is to say, emulators that run natively on the Switch to emulate other consoles, or emulators that run on PC to emulate the Switch. There are 4 categories in total.

    The voting process is twofold: the staff gets to vote, and some members can vote too (in separate threads). We only allowed patrons to vote in order to limit possible fraud, and also to reward them for supporting us. We've just counted the votes. And the winners are...

    Man I can't wait to see what improvements the 'Switch Pro' brings to emulators and the scene once it's exploitable. Keep up the great work everyone! :yayswitch:

    Amazing! I didn't expect my little ol' projects to do so well! :D @StapleButter will be getting half of the melonDS prize at least, hopefully it will serve as good motivation to continue work on the hardware renderer. As for me, I have some things in the works for both melonDS and NoiES, and maybe I'll start looking into writing a SNES (or N64 if I'm feeling really spicy!) emulator sometime in the future. Regardless, this certainly helps a lot! Thanks to everyone who made this bounty possible, and everyone who submitted projects, this community is fantasic! :yayswitch:

    I didn't update the result yet, but the full entry list and project links are there.
    Not a lot of people use the Wiki but I spend a lot of time to maintain it and add all existing homebrew projects and lot of information (for nobody to read :cry: )

    it was a month late. Too bad, I'm sure it would have got a nice reward if it entered the bounty.


    Congrats to all participant!
    I'm waiting for the game bounty now, I wondered if developers already worked on it and kept their project until now. I hope we will get a lot of new and creative games, not only ports. also I added some $ to the bounty for extra encouragement.

    Very well deserved. m4xw and Cpasjuste (among a few others) are the biggest treasures to this community.

    I'm a little disappointed on how pFBA pSNES and pNES performed. I guess they are not as good as I thought :/
    That said, thanks to all the voters and participants, and thanks to gbatemp for the contest of course.

    it's funny that the main sponsor of the m4xw award is just the TX team ...

    1. It's not the "main" sponsor
    2. gbatemp and m4xw made some sort of a deal that we won't take the amount of TX in case he would win
