    Project mention: Better Wifi App // VNC Server - MM+ (OnionOS) | /r/MiyooMini | 2023-05-25

    I wonder if instead of the WiFi we could use the usb-c port and stream over it just like it is done in Sys-DVR ( on hacked Switch. That would make the MM/MM+ even more amazing!

    Do not use Retroarch, instead use MelonDS (you can find it in the homebrew store or here) and enable ARM Jit Recompiler. It should work fine, but I had some text troubles when I tried Mario & Luigi Partners in Time and I suggest to install switchroot Android to use emulators there

  • SwitchThemeInjector

    Create custom themes for the nintendo switch !

    Project mention: [Release] Unison R, maybe the "definitive edition" of my previously released Unison theme pack - btw, happy TotK release! | /r/NXThemes | 2023-05-25

    Key Mapper itself is FLOSS (Free/Libre open-source software), the source code is here. Another possibility is Volta, but Key Mapper is better.

  • nxbt

    Control your Nintendo Switch through a website, terminal, or macro.

    Project mention: Raspberry Pi Hunts Shiny Pokémon While You Sleep | | 2023-08-11

    Oh wow, awesome use-case. This actually uses my Switch Bluetooth Controller emulation project [0] under the hood for automating the button presses. If you have a RPi on-hand, you can grab a decent USB capture card for around $15 on Ebay or Amazon, last I checked, for a cheap(er) entry point into automation projects like this.
