Just wanted to let you guys know that Zelda OOt 3ds and Majoras Mask now fully playable on neweset Citra core on Retroarch! (Overclock to 1200)
I am replaying now OOT 3d and i am now on the thrid dungeon everything is nice and feels good.

Its running 90 % of the time perfect on 2 x native resolution.
But aspect some slowdowns like on the hyrule castle market but still no problem, very playable because its rare.

I have made a example video how its running, recorded on the switch itself.

I'm a patron, but I have no news of a Citra update.

The last post about Citra is from 2020. Is that the version you are talking about? Or is there a new Citra post I'm not aware of?

You're using a very old build of citra patreon (1.8.8 retroarch build). Most recent is from around december 14 2021, retroarch build 1.9.12.
Both Zelda play ok but they can crash randomly or lag between loading screens.

That's awesome news!
I can't wait for this core to finally reach a stable release, it's fantastic.
It would effectively overthrow the 3DS altogether haha.

Is the bug with closing and trying to open another 3DS game still hapenning?

It's the same version as 2020. Still freezes randomly, even in OoT.

While it works great for some games, it still missing a lot of work.

Best way to play 3DS games without a 3DS would be on a Linux distro in a computer with a decent graphic card. Not ultra specs needed, just decent.

Maybe i had luck but no crashing no freezing so far. I will continue play and update this thread from time to time.

I just wanna play the Zelda Games so for this is fine enough i think.

Majora's Mask is very unstable. Crashes a lot more.

You may finish OoT without much hussle, but random freezes start later in the game, usually in places where several enemies spawn.

I think .3DS rom files from what I remember. And either the rom needs to be decrypted, or you need certain keys or a dump of a file containing those keys from a 3DS, to use an encrypted rom.

Yeah just use decrypted cia files.
I didn't try OOT but with some CPU underclock Majoras Mask runs very good performance wise. Sadly falling into holes is very prone to crashes. Also there is an guaranteed crash when trying to learn the elegy of emptiness, meaning you have to do that section on Citra PC or Android.
