    Download this, drop the new core in /retroarch/cores
    The nightly mupen core doesn't use the JIT patches yet (thus has lots of stuttering), still waiting for the next libnx release to get it on the bot.

    Alternatively you can download https://buildbot.libretro.com/nightly/nintendo/switch/libnx/RetroArch_loader_update.zip -> Drop it in /switch
    Then start it, update core infos, update assets, close -> drop core in /retroarch/cores -> done.
    (If you want content scanning you need to download the db's too)

    Note: You *need* to use a method that allows full RAM access, as mentioned in the install-libnx guide.

    Here are pre-made configs https://m4xw.net/nextcloud/index.php/s/g663mit7LA3RwcW
    These are tuned for old GLideN64 tho, new will need quite a few different *core options*
    You will need to get used to create them on a per-game basis as there is no config that fits all games (N64 emu is a hell in that regard)

    What do you mean, it's a standalone emulator (ie. it doesn't use retroarch interface) ? From what i understand it use retroarch, so you ported the mupen core to the switch. Like i said, it's probably a lot of work, but it's a community effort. It's unfair and don't belong to this contest to my opinion. I stop here, i don't want to make any drama (and i respect your hard work on the switch). I just give my opinion.

    I'm submitting pNES!

    [​IMG]


    Here is pNES, a NES emulator for the Nintendo Switch !
    More information will come later, i'm so sorry but i was in a coding rush since a few days, i can't post more detail about it right now, except that it work very well :D
    If you did use pFBA and pSNES, you'll now how it works! I have so much to say about it, but while you'll be busy testing it, i'll be updating this post!

    pNES is based on the excellent Nestopia emulator!

    lel, I ported old mupen to switch last year. This is a entirely new core I first released in january, that just got another huge, long awaited update in the N64 community.
    This has been half a year of work. Sorry that you spend a week coding a UI.
    I can play that game too, to me it's unfair that you slap a UI on a existing emulator and call it a day, but I am not complaining either.
    If you are concerned about frontends you missed the switch software bounty.

    "Community effort"

    Download link: https://gbatemp.net/download/pfba.35685/

    Changelog (many changes missing in this list, will be updated in the next few days).
    You can see (most) changes here: https://github.com/Cpasjuste/libcross2d/commits/master, https://github.com/Cpasjuste/libcross2dui/commits/master, https://github.com/Cpasjuste/pemu/commits/master
    • fix orange screen of death on exit
    • fix audio leak
    • fix 4/3 aspect ratio

    This squabbling is petty and distasteful. Leave it to the judges to do the judging.

    Dunno how writing a entirely new core for the switch is "ported a retroarch core".
    Sad that you have to be so salty about it.

    Also its a libretro core, there is no such thing as a "retroarch core".
    Write a libretro frontend and plug my core in, if you want a different frontend.
    Until then I will continue to use RetroArch (which was ported by me anyway).

    There a big difference in writing a full wrapper/interface/ui (libretro/pemu) and using them to port a "core", spell it like you want. You understand what i mean no?

    Do yourself a favor and just stop already.
    Everything in that sentence is wrong.

    All of you guys' ports are amazing and you're all winners!

    I shall 'borrow' all of your work, throw 1 of those popular and hip GUIs on them and enter'em for myself... muahahahaaa...time machine activate


    Some are, already, fanatic over N64, but standalone takes it to a whole different level! I forsee fancy Mupen NSPs even though a forwarder is recommended. Looks like it's come a looong way since last year. Take the money and have yourself a break.

    In this @grabman video, I see you got RE2 and Indiana Jones running
