FLOSS and accurate Mega Drive emulators are not just rare: there is only BlastEm by Michael Pavone.

I'm glad to announce that @gnome Games will include BlastEm after we fixed remaining issues in its Libretro core.

I'll finally be able to play my favorite console with my app. 🥰

GNOME Games now supports Nintendo 3DS games via the Citra Libretro core. :) Touch input and screen layouts are supported just like for DS, though there are no savestates.

It should be available in nightly builds very soon, but for now games can only be added via the Heavy plus sign button, until there's a new shared-mime-info release.

🎮 libmanette 0.2.6 released! 🎉

It mosly is an in-depth code cleanup, but hey, who doesn't like clean code‽ 😄

RetroGTK — the Libretro
frontend framework for GTK
— has a new website: gnome.pages.gitlab.gnome.org/r

Nothing fancy, but at least we have a central point for anything related to the library. 😄

Imagine there existed a cooperative dedicated to bringing GNOME forward, and its members worked full time on polishing the ecosystem.

If the designers and engineers announced their projects, and a communication team kept you posted of progress.

Would you throw money at it? And how would you contribute?

I tried to run Sonic Robo Blast 2 Kart from Flathub on my Librem 5. @purism

⬆️⬇️⬆️⬇️🔫🔫🔫, @GNOME Games gained Dreamcast support! 🎉️ It is powered by the Flycast Libretro core and it supports both the .gdi and .cdi formats. 😄️

You will be able to use it in the next stable version to be released in March 2021.

Librem 5 Laptop Mode

"The Librem 5 can now change from factors easily. Connect it to a powered USB-C dock to enable desktop mode. Or connect it to a laptop dock to turn your phone into a fully working laptop."

⚠️ libmanette moved to gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/libmane

If you use it, please update your URLs as they will now point to my personal fork that I won't keep up-to-date.

To ensure your app appears in the Librem 5 PureOS Store, specify the form factors it supports in its Appstream metainfo and desktop entry: adrienplazas.com/blog/2020/10/

Thanks to @exalm taking care of Webkit's packaging, Epiphany's GPU acceleration can now work on the #Librem5! Before (no acceleration) and after (GPU accelerated):
