    RSDuck has released a new version of the Gameboy Advance Emulator for the Nintendo Switch:

    This is probably going to be the final version of VBA-next. But don't worry, we're working on bringing another offspring of VBA, VBA-M, with a lot of feature than retroarch's VBA-next to the Switch.

    Changelog:

    Cheat support. They can be directly entered from the emulator, just enter the cheats menu from the pause menu.
    Fullscreen UI in docked mode(though the implementation isn't optimal, also currently not tested)
    Some minor improvements and adjustments, seriously

    Rock88 has released a new Playstation Emulator for the Nintendo Switch

    It's a quick port of PCSX-ReARMed, so currently it work with interpreter about half speed (maybe more), no sound, no menu.
    Port based on libnx.

    What works:

    Full screen image output
    Controls
    Memcard saves
    FPS meter (but it bound with screen updates so with frameskip = 1 it may display not real emulation speed value xD)


    Installing:
    Download & unpack zip, put pcsx_rearmed folder to SD://switch (path to nro should be SD://switch/pcsx_rearmed/pcsx_rearmed.nro)

    Configuration:
    Place game images to pcsx_rearmed folder, then manually edit pcsx_rearmed.cfg file
    Code:

    game = test.bin; // just replace 'test.bin' with image name here
    frameskip = 0; // 0 or 1

    Todo:

    Dynarec
    Sound
    GUI file selector, menu
    and much more xD

    Kevoot has released a new version of the Nes Emulator for the Nintendo Switch:

    New Release: 1.4

    This one fixes most crashing issues seen before. The issues seem to stem from a deadlock somewhere on the multithreading end of things. I don't really have time to track it down, so have reverted the threading and fixed up a few things.

    Configurable controllers are now supported as well, so have fun!

    New from Wiimpathy:

    Beebem Wii
    Introduction

    Beebem Wii is a port of Beebem gp2x(0.6-1), a BBC micro emulator. It's a computer by Acorn Computers released in the 1980s.
    LOADING GAMES

    If you load Beebem from the Homebrew channel as a standalone homebrew, the default softwares folder is /apps/beebem/discs. Copy your .ssd or .dsd games in this folder.

    To load a program, open the main menu, chose 'Run new game', and select the file. It will try to start the file automatically. By default, some Wii controllers buttons are mapped to BBC keys. You may need to reconfigure the buttons per game. Go to 'Configure game buttons', change the keys and select 'Save game configuration'. The configuration file will be saved in /apps/beebem/kbd. A virtual keyboard is also available in-game.
    CONTROLS

    Wiimote:

    A : Confirm
    B : Back
    + : Open virtual keyboard
    Home : Open main menu

    Classic controller:

    A : Confirm
    B : Back
    + : Open virtual keyboard
    Home : Open main menu

    GameCube controller:

    A : Confirm
    B : Back
    R : Open virtual keyboard
    Start : Open main menu

    GAME OPTIONS

    Here are the available settings in the 'Configure game options' :
    Audio

    Audio latency : When enabled, the sound is better. It's particularly useful for music since it drops less samples, but it adds a delay and sound effects loses sync.

    Video

    Top/Centered/Bottom/Scaled : It's scaled by default, it's the only option to show the whole screen by removing some lines. The BBC is 320256 and here we're at 320240.

    Use 240p mode : Enable double strike mode for low resolution display.

    Enable Bilinear filter : Toggle filter between sharp or smooth pixels.

    Nudge CRT (useful for FireTrack/Castle Quest etc) : This shifts the display vertically.

    Floppy drives

    floppy 0/1 R/W : Enable floppies read/write access.

    PLUGIN

    Beebem can be used as a plugin in WiiFlow or any compatible plugins loader. You'll find the necessary files in WiiFlow/plugins. By default, the plugin looks for the games in a /roms/BBC folder that you'll need to create. Edit bbc.ini file if you want a different path (romdir).
    NOTES

    One extra button (Wiimote -/GC Z) can also be configured, but is not accessible in the menu. You have to edit the mapping files (.kbd) manually. Change this P1_MINUS value per game or globally in /apps/beebem/config/default.kbd.

    Another option you can edit is DISABLE_CURSOR. Change value to YES to hide the cursor(not tested!).

    All credits go to the original beebem authors. Dedicated to 'the Wii scene is dead' people. It's 2018 and there are still updates for Genesis Plus GX, Snes9x GX, USB loader GX, WiiFlow Lite etc. And there's a new homebrew game called Newo Asteroids too.

    Heres news of a great Jailbreak for the Playstation Vita:


    • On 3.65 Systems you can install and enjoy the Enzo CFW framework and on systems with Firmware 3.67 & 3.68 you can now use the Henkaku Exploit.
      h-encore, where h stands for hacks and homebrews, is the second public jailbreak for the PS Vita™ which supports the newest firmwares 3.65, 3.67 and 3.68. It allows you to make kernel- and user-modifications, change the clock speed, install plugins, run homebrews and much more.

      Requirements
      • Your device must be on firmware 3.65, 3.67 or 3.68. Any other is not supported. If you're on a lower firmware, please decide carefully to what firmware you want to update, then search for a trustable guide on /r/vitahacks (if you know how and want to contribute, you can edit this readme and make a pull request, such that fellow readers have got an easier life). Remember that on firmware 3.65 you have got the possibility to install enso, the permanent hack, whereas on 3.67 and 3.68 you don't.
      • If your device is a phat OLED model, you need a Memory Card in order to install. There's no need for a Memory Card on Slim/PS TV models, since they already provide an Internal Storage. Make sure you have got at least 270 MB of free space.
      • Your device must be linked to any PSN account (it doesn't need to be activated though).


      Click to expand...
      Installation
      Note that the following guide is for advanced users and a bit more complicated than the previous hack that only required you to visit a website. If you don't understand the guide below or how to use these tools, you should neither file an issue here nor annoy me on twitter, but rather seek help on /r/vitahacks (check for duplicated questions first!) or wait for an easy installer by somebody else.

      1. Download h-encore and extract it on your computer.
      2. Download and install qcma, psvimgtools and pkg2zip (check the releases section for the binaries).
        If you don't know where to put psvimgtools and pkg2zip binaries, just put them in the h-encore folder.
      3. Download the vulnerable DRM-free demo of bitter smile (yes, that's the user entry point).
      4. Extract the demo using this command in terminal/cmd:
        Code:
        pkg2zip -x PATH_OF_PKG
        This will output the files to app/PCSG90096.
      5. Copy the contents of the output app/PCSG90096 to the folder h-encore/app/ux0_temp_game_PCSG90096_app_PCSG90096 (such that the files eboot.bin and VITA_PATH.TXT are within the same folder).
      6. Copy the license file app/PCSG90096/sce_sys/package/temp.bin to the folder
        h-encore/license/ux0_temp_game_PCSG90096_license_app_PCSG90096 and rename the just pasted file temp.bin to 6488b73b912a753a492e2714e9b38bc7.rif. Be careful with the file extension, it should not be .rif.bin. Again, this file should be in the same folder as VITA_PATH.TXT.
      7. Start qcma and within the qcma settings set the option Use this version for updates to FW 0.00 (Always up-to-date) to spoof the System Software check.
      8. Launch Content Manager on your PS Vita and connect it to your computer, where you then need to select PC -> PS Vita System, and after that you select Applications. If you see an error message about System Software, you should simply reboot your device to solve it (if this doesn't solve, then put your device into airplane mode and reboot). This should create a folder at PS Vita/APP/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx on your computer (see qcma settings where this folder is), where the folder xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx represents the AID (account ID that is 16 characters long) that you need to insert here. If the AID is valid, it will yield a key that you can now use to encrypt the demo.
      9. Change directory to the h-encore folder in terminal/cmd and use the key to encrypt all folders using (make sure you don't confuse the key with the AID, the key is 64 characters long!):
        Code:
        psvimg-create -n app -K YOUR_KEY app PCSG90096/app
        psvimg-create -n appmeta -K YOUR_KEY appmeta PCSG90096/appmeta
        psvimg-create -n license -K YOUR_KEY license PCSG90096/license
        psvimg-create -n savedata -K YOUR_KEY savedata PCSG90096/savedata
        The folder h-encore/PCSG90096 should then contain sce_sys and all 4 folders from above, and within these folders you should find files called X.psvimg and X.psvmd, where X has the same name as the folder. Backup this folder, since if everything has been done correctly, you don't need to redo all the steps to install it onto another device with the same PSN account.
      10. Copy the folder h-encore/PCSG90096 to PS Vita/APP/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/PCSG90096 and refresh the database under qcma settings.
      11. The h-encore bubble with a size of around 243 MB should now appear in the Content Manager and that's what you finally need to transfer to your PS Vita. If the size does not match or you get the error C2-12858-4, then it's because you did not do it correctly! Please re-read the instructions more carefully then. If you get the error You can only copy applications that your account is the owner of, then it's because you have used an AID that is not of your account, go back to step 8.
      12. Launch h-encore to exploit your device (if a message about trophies appears, simply click yes). The screen should first flash white, then purple, and finally open a menu called h-encore bootstrap menu where you can download

    It seems that Nintendo are getting pissy against sites offering roms of their Systems, heres the news:


    • The sites are among the most notorious online hubs for pirated games, according to Nintendo, and face millions of dollars in potential damages. With the launch of NES Classic Games on their Nintendo Switch coming up soon in September, it means we are in for another wave of crackdowns by big 'N' over any site that offers Emulators or Retro ROMs for playing Nintendo games on other platforms.
      This week, Nintendo took two of these sites to court. In a complaint filed at a federal court in Arizona, the game publisher sues LoveROMS.com and LoveRETRO.co for copyright and trademark infringement.

      Both sites are believed to be operated by Jacob Mathias and his Arizona company Mathias Designs LLC. They offer access to a wide variety of ROMs, including many Nintendo games.

      “The LoveROMs and LoveRETRO websites are among the most open and notorious online hubs for pirated video games,” Nintendo writes in the complaint.

      “Through the LoveROMs and LoveRETRO websites, Defendants reproduce, distribute, publicly perform and display a staggering number of unauthorized copies of Nintendo’s video games, all without Nintendo’s permission.”

      In addition to the copyrighted games, the sites also distribute proprietary BIOS software, while using trademarked logos and characters, Nintendo notes.

      While some ROMs sites may be hobby projects, Nintendo sees these two sites as professional operations that profit from its works.

      “Defendants are not casual gamers but are instead sophisticated parties with extensive knowledge of Nintendo’s intellectual property and the video game industry more generally,” the company notes.

      Through the lawsuit, which also lists a count of unfair competition, Nintendo hopes to shut both sites down. The company requests statutory damages of $150,000 per infringing Nintendo game and up to $2,000,000 for each trademark infringement.

      This means that, with more than 140 copyrighted titles and 40 trademarks on the record, theoretical damages could go up to a staggering $100 million.

      Nintendo further requests a permanent injunction ordering the sites to stop their infringing activities while handing over domain names to the game publisher. At the same time, Nintendo wants the operator of the sites to reveal the sources for the infringing ROMs.
      Click to expand...
      As noted above, Nintendo is demanding a list of all 'uploaders' that filled up the site with these nasty illegal backup ROMs, so if you were nice sharing member, get ready to receive a letter if the site's owner caves into all the pressure from the lawyers, but so far he still fighting and operating the sites.

Ive gave this review being very honest on what was a tough day for the park with the water shortage which was out of their control but theres room for improvement also.
