RetroNX for Switch released

Need to download it and see how well it works. I have some old Mame emulator on my Switch.

Did my Switch crash from being in EmuNAND? I don’t really use it, just leave it in the dock. There’s reports about it crashing, I think you have to use the Switch for a crash to happen.

Nope, Switch didn’t crash.

No Nintendo 64 core yet.

SNES, NES, and Genesis all work good. OpenGL for homebrew apps is nice.


More Linux games now a days

I could probably avoid Windows all together now, just don’t play any EA games. Buy games that have a Linux version, Steam Play might be fine too. The one game I tried didn’t work though, Valve didn’t verify that it works though. Might work in Wine, but Proton uses Vulkan, which might be better then OpenGL. You can use Vulkan with regular Wine too, if you aren’t lazy. That’s probably why the game doesn’t work.

Proton is good for lazy people, just install Steam, I think you need the beta. It might be the end of Crossover.

Proton is a tool distribution based on a modified version of Wine. The included improvements to Wine have been designed and funded by Valve, in a joint development effort with CodeWeavers. Here are some examples of what we’ve been working on together since 2016:

From here.

Why would anyone use Crossover over Proton?

Netflix sucks on the Apple TV

It doesn’t mark episodes as watched anymore, so I have to guess what episode I’m on now.

Does No man’s Sky work with Steam Play?

I enabled Steam Play for all titles, once No Man’s Sky is done downloading, I’ll know. Steam Play is based on Wine, Proton is what it’s called. Steam Play uses Proton.

If you search the Wine site, No Man’s Sky apparently works.

Might not work for me because of the open source driver. Can’t downgrade the kernel to use the non open source driver, no SMT support on Ryzen on the required version of the closed source driver.

I think my Linux video card only has 2 GB of VRAM, so it’ll probably crash if it works at all. Higher then 1080p resolution.

People say non native resolutions on LCD monitors looks worse. Not sure I agree though.

Well, it loads, but you can’t see much. Looking at the FAQ for Steam Play.

The last picture is with the Proton beta. The menu works, but you can still see the menu when exiting the menu, on the non beta Proton.

Doesn’t really matter that it doesn’t work, I have a Windows VM, with a better video card.
