I’ve been enjoying Jack Black’s trolly YouTube channel, Jablinksi, since it launched.

During the early months of development, work was done in private, and progress was slow. However, as Switch reverse-engineering and homebrew development became popular, work on yuzu began to take off as well.…More
Snes9x Git (2019/03/02) is compiled. Snes9x is a portable, freeware Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) emulator.

Snes9x is coded in C++, with three assembler CPU emulation cores on the i386 Linux and Windows ports.…More
