    This is a great day in the community.

    FINALLY THE VIRTUAL CONSOLE WE ALL DESERVE!

    Not from Nintendo but from our community.

    We now have Arcade games, Game Boy Advance games, Game Boy Color games, Sega Gamegear/Genesis/CD games all running.

    All running on 4.1.0, 5.0.2 or 4.X.X and 5.X.X software version of the Nintendo Switch.

    Might not be 100% but we are off to an AMAZING START.

    You never know what will be next.

    GBA, GBC AND SEGA CD all in the video link below:



    Tutorial video along with download links and links to threads coming soon.

    Should help make it easier to find everything and get a better visual of the process involved in running these emulators on 4.X.X through 5.X.X

    DeSmuME-NX (Nintendo DS Emulator) thread and download link:
    http://taraftartekstil.com/threads/desmume-nx-wip-ds-emulator-for-switch.504248/


    GBA thread and download link:
    http://taraftartekstil.com/threads/gameboy-advance-emulator-port-gdkgba-works-on-5-0.504186/page-3

    GBA roms MUST be in the NEW LOCATION sd:/switch/roms/gba DUE TO NEW UPDATE

    New update requires old Save States also to be moved to sd:/switch/roms/gba DUE TO NEW UPDATE



    GBC thread and download link:
    http://taraftartekstil.com/threads/gbc-emulator-port-khedgb-works-on-5-0.503969/page-5

    GBC roms MUST be in the NEW LOCATION sd:/switch/roms/gbc DUE TO NEW UPDATE

    New update requires OLD Save files to also be moved to sd:/switch/roms/gbc DUE TO NEW UPDATE



    pFBA thread and download link:
    http://taraftartekstil.com/threads/pfba-final-burn-alpha.497188/page-14

    pFBA ROMS MUST BE PLACE AND NAMED CORRECTLY FOR pFBA To recognize you game. If the game name is green in the list your good to go. If the game name is red in the list STOP it wont load correctly.

    pFBA rom location example:

    Make sure the name is correct.
    Keep each game as a zip file.
    Try a Sega megadrive game.
    Place it in the roms folder in pFBA.
    Try sonic for example.
    Make sure sonic is named as fallows.
    md_sonic
    md_ in the name tells the emulator it is a Sega megadrive.



    Stay tuned to the channel or thread for all the latest news and updates.

    All the best.

    To be sure, it's a replication, not the actual thing.
    Nice one though.

    Want to know people's thoughts on the recent progress with Homebrew running on 4.X.X and 5.X.X

    A lot of progress has been made in such a short period of time it's amazing.

    To all the developers I would like to say thank you for all your time and hard work.

    This is an amazing community when everyone gets along and works together.

    pFBA Yes but the gameboy one run and then crash IN THE DOCK after a while.

    Handheld is great.

    All cool and all for the homebrew stuff, but you are semi-advertising your youtube channel which you aren't allowed to do except in signatures. Soooo you might want to change the first post so it isn't doing as such.

    Can you relax and give me time to finish the thread/forum.

    I'm not even HOME RIGHT NOW.

    This is to also help people find all the emulators on 4.X.X and 5.X.X easily all in one thread/forum with links instead of searching like crazy spending so much time trying to find them.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    That is the reason for this thread.

    TO SAVE PEOPLE TIME SEARCHING

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Stay on topic of the thread that is all I ask.

    If anyone knows of more emulators working on 4.x.x or 5.x.x please do share.

    Thanks.

    Have fun and all the best.

    Why do you make a threat about threats on the same site?

    Also retroarch builds have been up for months, stop this hype train. Just because you decided to update doesn't mean nothing happened..

    To be fair, all 3 of these emulators have topics in this same section and are constantly bumped. If someone has to search like crazy to find them...

    Btw, saying "Subscribe and like!" makes people not do precisely that.

    Nice video, was going to drop a like but that advertising triggers people. If your content is good, the likes and subs will appear. Begging for it is just sad.

    "OHH GEE LIKE AND SUBSCRIBE GUYZZ!"

    What's this? 2012?

    Thread will be updated regularly as progress continues with emulators and we get further compatability on 4.x.x and 5.x.x

    May add links to 3.x.x emulators in a bit to help people on that software save some time getting around the threads/forums

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Let's see when N64 and PS1 will hit the list of compatible emulators.

    No reason the Nintendo switch wouldn't be capable of running Gamecube and wii games in the near future.

    All in due time.

    No, but the Switch emulators need access to hardware acceleration; as it stands, software acceleration is pretty slow.
