    I am using SX OS also. Can i not boot the hekate payload, boot into atmosphere, and than follow the instructions to install retroarch while in atmosphere? I have no problem booting intro atmosphere to use retroarch and SX OS for everything else. Is this possible?

    Nevermind, reboot to payload lets me switch seamlessly between any cfw. But how do i get the title id of a homebrew nsp or even install an nsp thru atmosphere?. My apologies, so used to SX OS. Thanks.

    I tried to use a homebrew nsp and changed the title id in hekate so it would redirect me to the homebrew launcher. Now when i try to boot into CFW or OFW through hekate i just get a black screen. All i can do is boot into CFW from SX OS. I tried formatting my sd card and transferring all new files and still get the same black screen using hekate? Any help would be apppreciated. Thanks.

    I followed this guide to the letter and everything works just fine, except N64.

    I download the core just fine (Latest MupenPlus Next) but when i try to load a rom, literally nothing happens, and i also dont see any menu to overclock anywhere.

    So what am i doing wrong?

    easiest way is to get rid of your second part of your title_id for the album part and download the homebrew launcher (legacy format) from https://reinx.guide/guide/download-and-install
    let layeredfs do the work :)

    It should work if you started a installed game while holding R on the mainscreen of the Switch.

    Is it possible to have button combos directly launch an nro? Tried manually doing it on atmosphere config, didn't work.

    Oddly enough, overriding any game/app with the homebrew channel makes melonDS perform worse than expected..
    Why this happens i don;t have a clue.
    Anyone could explain why?

    I'm running Atmosphere and I'm on 8.0.1 What I am trying to do is run retroarch with full ram access to get N64 emulation to run. I don't have any NSP's installed. It is my understanding that the newest version of atmosphere (which I have) allows for the homebrew menu to be opened with full ram access by holding R and opening one of your games from the home screen (I don't have any). My question is what would be the simplest way to either A) Install a game that can be booted from the homescreen (is there some homebrew .nsp I could install?), or B) find some other workaround to get retroarch to run with full RAM access in Atmosphere.

    For the record I have tried the .nsp forwarding version of retroarch that came out a while ago but it was incompatible with the newest version of retroarch (1.7.7) which is the one I have installed.

    Since atmosphere does the r on any game to access homebrew menu by default now does that mean mods won't work with atmosphere?

    Hell
    Mods are enabled by default, you don’t hold a button to access them.

    But by the default config (loader.ini) you can hold L to disable them, I believe. Same with cheats.
