    Ever since Atmosphère implemented the new HID system, they offered a hid mitm service service to be able to use such old homebrew.
    It's not active by default on newer versions but can be enabled in the config file so that one should still work.

    It would be useufl if instead of just pointing towards RetroArch, a list of top cores would have been presented.

    3d games like Diddy kong racing and mario 64 run horribly.

    I would recommend everybody stays clear of Reicast and uses flycast core in Retroarch instead, frankly. It still has the texture invalidation bug which renders a huge amount of major games (Sonic Adventure 2, Phantasy Star Online...) unplayable. People need to move on from standalone Reicast, it's dead.

    all emulators should have config files that are community edited especially retroarch
    community agreed upon optimal settings for each core and for each rom
    a universal config that sets up everything or almost everything to agreed upon standards

    Mupen64 plus next is the best thing that's ever happened, ever.

    That is kinda the problem. By focusing only on the standalone emulators, you end up overlooking the most important emulators for the Switch. Mupen64plus next, PCSX ReARMed, flycast, SameBoy, Mesen etc. Even PPSSPP was just a libretro core at first.

    Do we need internet to download cores on Retroarch? My console is offline since day 1.

    The switch and 3ds are very similar in a lot of ways - if Ninty cared backwards compatibility could have been pretty easy

    The huge leap in 3DS progress is because of the ARM64 dynarec that recently got added to the Android build.

    The 3rd best emulator is the one that was rushed out in alpha state and promptly abandoned? What?

    Honestly this article should be edited.

    Looks like the author took note and is going to fix 2d games on flycast core.

    All these emulators look good, but how many Tempers will be using these with pirated ROMs? Don't worry; I won't tell a soul. :creep: Just kidding, of course. I keep piracy to a minimum with RBC; the only thing I allow downloads of are the DLC for the Wii because the Wii Shop has blocked access.

    To say I've never pirated anything would be a flat out lie, but I did use ScummVM on Android to emulate a game I had legitimately - Myst. This was before Cyan had NoodleCake make the Myst and Riven apps on Google Play. Unfortunately, later updates to the app took out this capability, so I had to downgrade to make it work again. Basically, you took certain files from the Myst disc and injected it into a folder that ScummVM would read. Once the game was launched, you could use your finger to control the on-screen cursor and move to the various areas of Myst Island.

    ...Upon researching, it seems that they've added support back, but you need the Mohawk engine in ScummVM.

    Don't use the 3DS emulator, it will overheat your Switch too much.
