About Ryujinx

What is Ryujinx?
(REE-YOU-JI-NX)

Ryujinx 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 was created by gdkchan who worked on emulators for older systems before, like the NES and the Gameboy Advance. This emulator is also available on GitHub, and is licensed under the MIT license. It was written from scratch, and development started around September of 2017.



Multiple games are bootable and playable, you can find the compatibility list on our website to know their last known state. But don't expect impressive performance just yet, as we are only getting started. (Check our Compatibility List)

Why a Patreon?

All the developers working on the project do so on their free time, but the project has several expenses (Computers, Nintendo Switch-es, Games, Website Hosting). Everything we will develop will be released under a FLOSS (Free-Libre Open Source Software) license.

All the funds acquired through our Patreon is considered a donation to support our work, and we will not do private releases. We may post exclusive progress reports, or early access to tools that can be used with the emulator. However, you are not buying an emulator. Do not expect privileged customer support.

Where to download?

You may find the latest build on our website: https://www.ryujinx.org/
Or, you may compile the sources of Ryujinx from our github: https://github.com/Ryujinx/Ryujinx

You can contact us on our discord:  https://discord.gg/N2FmfVc

Thanks for your support.
Goals
$1,802.02 of $2,000 per month
Texture Packs / Replacement Capabilities

This will facilitate the replacement of in-game graphics textures which enables custom texture enhancements, alternate controller button graphics, and more.

ETA once goal is reached: ~3-4 weeks

Ideally, we would like to be able to have a couple of our developers working on Ryujinx full-time, but this will require a much higher monthly Patreon commitment.
For now, we are humbly requesting YOUR support to help us achieve our goals!
