    Every emulator also works on SX OS. RetroArch libnx has the most emulators: https://gbatemp.net/threads/development-thread-retroarch-libnx.505672/
    There are also standalone emiulators like pSNES, VBA-Next and pFBA.
    There is also the linux distribution Lakka which can run on the Switch, but it's not worth for beginners (as many things are misisng, like Stanbdy and audio output through the speakers).
    You can find the file structure in the threads. It's always SD://switch/FOLDERNAME/FOLDERNAME.nro for the emulator itself (RetroArch is different but there is a good README explaining it)

    How is performance of homebrew/emulators through CFW vs Lakka? I understand homebrew through CFW does not have access to the GPU for hardware accelerated graphics, but what about the stuff that wouldn't really use that?

    Retro nx has been awesome on sxos. Psx games run at 50-60fps without gpu excelleration. Gba, nes, snes and genesis have worked pretty much flawlessly for me so far.

    Lakkka is linux based and using mesa drivers with opengl. what we are looking to get at some point is tegra with cuda support, As of now lakka handles everything upto gamecube

    Doesn't gamecube only run half speed and you need a Bluetooth speaker paired to your Switch to get audio?

    Last I checked yes but that was a few weeks ago. I was just letting poster know the details of GPU support. The audio thing is being worked on im sure

    Has anyone experienced the memory card corruption warned of in the Retroarch README when using ExFAT? I could set up a separate memory card just for emulation, but would rather not since most ROMs for the GBA are only a few MB. Really only want FF5 and 6 Advance which I still have to get around to playing some day.
