I wanted to share, that's what i've been working on lately :

The "SH2 cached interpreter" we are using is running pretty fast (about the same speed as a dynarec, except it is cross-platform and written in pure C). Feel free to take a look and use it if you want (https://github.com/FCare/Kronos/tree/extui-align/yabause/src/sh2_kronos)

Very nice! The Saturn and ST-V definitely need more love.
Thanks for your work (and for lr-fba, too).

I'm not too hopeful, but will it run on a Pi?

Definitely not, it needs a gles3 or gl3.3 compatible gpu, and AFAIK even the standalone version of YabaSanshiro (the other yabause fork which is heavily optimized for arm) won't run well on an odroid XU4, which is gles3 and almost twice the speed of the rpi3.

I see, not too surprising... Anyway, I hope you guys can share some work across forks.
