    BernardoGiordano has released a new version of his Savegame manager for the Nintendo Switch:

    What's new

    General Checkpoint improvements to enhance the user's experience.
    The whole UI has been completely redesigned. This affects many things in the user experience.
    Titles are now displayed by icons. You can display up to 20 titles at the same time. If you have more , you'll find them in the next pages.
    Saves for the users are now listed separately and sorted for user.
    You can change the selected title or the current user by using the dedicated buttons or using the touchscreen.
    Detailed informations are now displayed on screen.
    Space has been really optimized to be fully occupied with useful informations.
    Selector animations. You all love them right?
    Memory leaks related to the title icons have been fixed. Also, icons are now stored more efficiently to take less space and reduce the initial loading time.

    Even though the User Interface will be this one pretty much forever, the code underneath will be redesigned as well. It's been refactored too much times and it's too messy for my taste. It'll be rewritten to be cleaner soon™.

    Heres a great new Snes Emulator for the Nintendo Switch:

    Hi, here is something i'm working on since a while now, but as my time is very limited... There is now other alternatives but... well

    Installation

    copy "psnes" directory to "/switch/" directory on sdcard
    copy roms to "/switch/psnes/roms/" directory on sdcard

    Information

    pSNES "should" work on any firmware (based on libnx and snes9x.git)
    pSNES actually support save states, 2x, 3x, fit, fit 4/3 and fullscreen hardware linear scaling and a simple (but nice?) ui.
    pSNES ui support titles images (png), named as the rom name with png extension instead zip, in the "previews" directory (to be created if needed).
    pSNES does not actually support high resolution games...
    pSNES use a database file for rom handling. You'll need a "db.xml" file located alongside the application. The current "db.xml" file comes from "Hyperspin" website, and only contains USA "good rom / no-intro" set. Your rom files must be zipped and named as per this set. You'll find in the "database" directory this file as backup/reference (Super Nintendo Entertainment System - hyperspin.xml) + a complete set from dat-o-matic (http://datomatic.no-intro.org). Rename this file to "db.xml" and (re)place it in the same directory as the executable to use this one. You can make your own database file with filtering from this great website.

    Heres a nice Zelda game for the Nintendo Switch:

    I managed to complete the game. I had a couple times early on that it crashed but after those times I had no issues.

    I managed to use your NRO file and edited it to run the Zelda Return of the Hylian Solarus Edition. It runs pretty well too. It's a much shorter game but some may be interested in playing it.

    If your one of those after a Modchip for the Nintendo Switch heres some good news for you:


    • It is only a few days away before SX OS lands on your Nintendo Switch console, and you can enjoy the world of 'backup games' and 'homebrew' support on the latest v5.1.0 firmware, and as such TX has released one more announcement before the reviewers get their hands on the SX PRO which is shipping out this week worldwide to various resellers with preorders, so check it out below:
      Welcome to the last Team-Xecuter announcement before we let the reviewers take over!

      Please find final product & packaging pictures with this announcement. This is from one of the 100 review samples that will be shipped this week. If you are on the review copies list, you do not need to email us: We will send you tracking once shipped.

      For reseller information, the packaging dimension and weight with product and cable: Weight: 30g. Dimensions: 10*7*1.4cm

      We want to confirm that SX OS official launch date is June 15th. Remember this is the day we ship units to vendors, so your own tracking number from the reseller will be a few days later. Also, because this is very large product launch, we can't deliver all preordered units on D-day. If you placed your order late, you might have to wait a week more for your distributor to receive more stocks after he clears its first preorders.

      We are working 24/7 right now to make the delay to deliver all preorders as short as possible.

      As usual, a few Q&A that came back regularly:
      • Q: Is SX affected by the dreaded "battery desync" problem?
        A:
        As far as we are aware this battery desync problem currently only occurs when running Linux on your Switch.
        While extensively testing SX OS, including booting SX OS with AutoRCM we have not ran into a single battery desync issue ourselves.
        SX OS itself isn't based on Linux. We *do* allow people to run Linux (and other payloads) through our "external payload" functionality. This is at your own risk.
        If we had to give the community a hint as to where to start looking into this "battery desync" problem we'd suggest looking into how the Fuel Gauge IC (MAX17050, I2C1 addr 36) is being used by Nintendo's OS and by Linux.


      • Q: If I boot in OFW mode and play my original purchased game online, am I safe?
        A:
        Yes, you are safe to play original games online in OFW mode.


      • Q: Does SX OS plays the original games in CFW mode?
        A:
        Yes, it does.


      • Q: If I download eShop games to an SD card, can I also run SX OS on that card?
        Or do I need separate cards for Nintendo eShop games and SX OS games?
        A:
        You can use the same SD card.

      Next week, the first reviews will be online, we are sure they will be excellent as we expect!

    STJr and carstene1ns have ported the homebrew Sonic game to the Nintendo Switch:

    Hoi, I have ported SRB2 to Nintendo Switch!

    This is no proper release yet, but mainly a test build. Button configuration is not final yet (MINUS is mapped to ESC for now)
    and also the startup time needs to be improved (currently it seems to wait for a network timeout for about a minute :unsure.

    Heres a new release of the gameboy advance emulator for the Nintendo Switch:

    A VBA-M port for Nintendo Switch. It's based of the libretro port(the actual emulator) and 3DSGBA(the GUI, although heavily refactored).

    After porting 3DSGBA(which often crashed probably because of a huge amount of memory leaks), I tried porting mGBA which ran not so well. That's why I decided to experiment with a lighter less accurate emulator, which lead to this port.

    Needs libnx and devkitPro to build. Just run make.
    Features

    Quite high compability(haven't tried many games)
    Save games and save states
    Frameskip

    Problems

    In rare occasions the audio has problems
    Video and Input not frame accurate(see Speed hack)

    Speed hack

    Before implementing this "speed hack" the emulator had regular slowdowns. Although I found out about these things by myself, these things might be common knowledge to emulator devs. These were the things which apparently slowed the emulator down:

    The thread/core it's running on
    The VSync

    The first problem was solved by running the whole emulator in a second thread with a very high priority pinned to a core not used by the system.

    Omitting the wait for vertical synchronisation lead naturally to artefacts. So I decided on only running the emulator inside the second thread, locked using sleep thread to 60 Hz. At the same time the main thread is locked by the vsync and only receives the framebuffer while sending the input. I left the audio in the emulator thread.

    This leads of course to the problem that both threads, although locked to 60 Hz, may not run in sync, so the input or the graphics of a frame may be skipped or out of sync sometimes.

    Changelog:

    Complete UI overhaul. Now it looks almost native!
    Setting to offset the real time clock

    Again thanks to @dene-, who's responsible for the UI improvements and @jakibaki who's our expert for RTC and saving.

    Some good news for Switch hackers:


    • As I announced some weeks ago, I've written a program which allows you to make your life easier. Because of long threads and misunderstandings I felt that I need to make a program which has everything included, necessary to get into homebrew.


    • You can add/remove packages (.zip-files) and extract them. There is already Hekate4 and 5 and the Appstore preinstalled.

      For the payloads it uses TegraRcmSmash by @rajkosto and the necessary drivers.
      You can there as well add and remove payloads you want to use. Included packages so far here: biskeydump,fusee testpayload, hekate_ctcaer_2.0
      I tested the homebrew launcher with hekate on my 4.1.0 Switch with a Windows 10 PC - everything worked out perfectly.
      And yes people I know - this isn't groundbreaking, but an All In One Package and that exactly was what I wanted.
      An updater is also included, so you should be notified once something new is available.

      There is a installer version as well as a portable version. Just make sure to extract everything if you choose portable.

      Linux integration will follow sometime later - maybe you even want to contribute to that.

    Not played the game itself but heres good news for some:


    • With E3 within only a few weeks, this is the time for rumors to be at their most wild and speculative. Especially when it comes to popular games. There's also been quite a few games leaked prior to the actual press conferences, such as Team Sonic Racing, Rage 2, and Assassin's Creed Odyssey, leading to the actual confirmation of these games potentially weeks earlier than intended. When Walmart isn't "accidentally" letting the existence of these titles out to the public, a good way to get an early confirmation of a game is by checking out each country's Ratings Board. This has lead to the discovery of games like Assassin's Creed Rogue Remastered, Okami HD, and Super Bomberman R multiplatform, far before the actual reveal.

      The latest roundup of interesting new ratings from the Korean Game Ratings Board shows three game releases that could potentially be happening: Borderlands 1 GOTY for XB1, PS4, and PC, Sunset Overdrive for PC, and lastly and potentially most interestingly, Fortnite for the Nintendo Switch.

      This also follows a "leak" from 4chan stating that Fortnite, Paladins, Dragon Ball FighterZ and more would be getting announced at Nintendo's Direct at this E3. Once more, after correctly predicting the Fallout 76 tease, Kotaku has corroborated this specific rumor, and claims that they have a source at Epic Games that has confirmed this as truth. Of course, it's all to be taken with a grain of salt until June 12, the day of Nintendo's conference.
