What is RyujiNX?
It is a Nintendo Switch Emulator programmed in C#; unlike most emulators that are created with C++ or C.
This emulator aims to offer good performance, a friendly interface, and consistent builds.
RyujiNX is created by user gdkchan over at the GBAtemp forums.
This emulator is also available on GitHub, and is licensed under the "Unlicensed" license.
Note: This emulator is not capable (as of now) of running Commercial Nintendo Switch games!
If you somehow find a source claiming that the Emulator is capable, and it has not been officially confirmed by us;
Please consider reporting it via our Discord server.
Please keep in mind; these builds are from AppVeyor and are considered unstable!
Where can I grab it?
As of right now, the emulator has no stable builds; although, you may follow the build guide by clicking the "Build" menu option above. Or you may download the latest pre-compiled build (above.)
How can I Contribute?

RyujiNX currently doesn't work well with games as of now. Much like 'yuzu,' it only supports homebrew at the moment.
RyujiNX is currently only available for Windows. Although, support for Linux, and macOS is there; but it may be more difficult to compile it.
Join the RyujiNX Discord server; you can get help, as well as converse with fellow users and developers.
Why the name?
The name RyujiNX is based on the name "Ryujin." In other words, a name for a Mythical (Sea-God) Dragon.
More information can be found here.
The name stems from Ryu (as already explained), then RyuJIT; which is the codename for the JIT compiler for Net Core. The NX part of the name is from the Codename of the Switch itself.
