    32 GB microSD cards are dirt cheap, I'd just grab one for homebrew.

    Each game has its own save file :).

    I also fixed that in the gbc-emulator when I added the file picker.

    Haha what amazing work so far.

    I had a recommendation which would help us all keep our roms folder CLEANER.

    Basically changing the roms location to sd:/switch/roms/GBA for the GBA emulator.

    And

    sd:/switch/roms/GBC for the GBC emulator.

    Would make looking and scrolling through games a lot easier.

    Would help clean up the roms folder and allow us to keep GBC and GBA games in their own folders.

    Again AMAZING WORK.

    Tested save states on GBA and GBC both good to go

    Thanks again and all the best.

    sd:/switch/roms/

    I'd like to see it changed to sd:/switch/roms/GBA to allow us to separate our roms and to clean up the roms list in game selection

    Let me know if you can change GBA rom directory to sd:/switch/roms/GBA

    And

    For GBC rom directory of sd:/switch/roms/GBC

    Besides Audio which is understandable and takes time I'm happy.

    Much appreciate all your time and hard work we all know it is not easy.

    Zero mission does this P:

    And legacy of Goku 2 doesn't work past press start. Just thought I should let people know.

    Pokemon leaf green should be cool though (: don't need audio for that

    Now that I think about it this was the GBC version but I accidentally started a Gameboy game haha and it ran, not the colour version either as I can tell.

    Was an accident thought it was colour version

    Yes it should, the GBC version did.

    Only thing I did notice is tr ge switch may crash/need restarted sometimes in the emulator docked.

    I'm sure the developer is busy and a bit exhausted from all the hard work.

    I'm sure he will see all our comments and get back with a fix or something in a bit. Think he deserves a brake for a few hours haha

    Have you tried porting Mupen64 to the Switch?
    It ran pretty well on the Wii, so I'd assume it would run even better on the Switch.
    I really want to play Banjo-Kazooie next to Yooka-Laylee!
    If someone does it, and it's not named MupeNX, I'll be sad.

    Not surprising it's a Nintendo scene after-all on a already well known architecture, it was a match made in heaven :hrth:

    Yeah, I've been playing Pokemon Ruby, everything seems to be working besides the sound which is a shame, but It's still very much a playable experience.
