    Do source ports of games count? Like programs used to i guess, emulate, older games?

    Like quakegasm and eDuke32 are used to run Quake and Duke Nukem 3D for example. Cpajuste and fgsfds have ported multiple of these which are all excellent.

    I would say they fit in the game category (they are either game engine / interpreter).

    I'm sure you made a cps2 emu for PSP way back.

    The frontpage still links to Month 2

    Just saying..

    Good luck everyone <3

    Oh and could someone please make a PC98 Emulator with Keyboard support?
    You can not configure keys of the PC98 emulator in Retroarch, and physical keyboards are not working with the switch :((
    (Atleast in Retroarch)

    :D

    Maybe some genius will handle this https://github.com/hrydgard/ppsspp/issues/10934 and get PSP on Horizon OS...solo...far away from retroarch!!! Even if it has just a few games running, initially, like MelonDS.

    If only MUGEN would bring their presence to the Switch.

    re: JPCSP, wouldn't PPSSPP be an easier project to port? Not only is it more complete right now but it already has an ARM Android counterpart... hint hint ;)

    And man, I would have killed to see a proper media player on Wii U, and maybe a Quake source port and/or a Dreamcast emulator or the like. I didn't even know people were offering cash incentives! The scene was sorely underrepresented and maybe now that the console has reached end-of-life the real fun can begin. :)

    @Costello what percentage for this bounty will be allocated from TX money?
    I will only partake in this bounty if you can assure me none of the money would be coming from TX pockets and that the difference will be donated from gba's side to a foundation of my choice.

    Retroarch shouldn't count. Retroarch is junky. Horrible interface, horrible user experience, the wrong goal is being solved. It's not a huge deal to use different apps to emulate different consoles. Doing so is almost always a better user experience.

    Why do you need GBAtemp to donate it.. you could just do it yourself after knowing the amount. :P

    I will not give in to your subjective statements, but I agree that RetroArch shouldn't count, but you know, RetroArch is not a emulator to begin with.
    Mupen64Plus-Next on the other hand... is a complete rewrite of the old N64 core, with first-class support for switch.

    Because I don't even want to touch their shit with gloves.
    It's my personal choice.

    Build a proper native Switch interface around that 'core' and I'd be very interested :)

    You never tried Ozone?
    It's literally a replica of the switch's UI.

    I don't want that. I don't want XMB or the appearance of the normal Switch UI or anything. I want a normal emulator UI. Retroarch is like DZ: too big, too heavy, trying to accomplish different goals than mine. I just want to select a game and play it.

    I am referring to the matter in which normal Switch software/homebrew looks and feels. I want it to feel like Goldleaf, not like DZ. A skin does not solve the fundamental design failures of Retroarch. It's an endless sea of fussy options and buttons and junk.
