How to use svcSetThreadCoreMask

Post by devMiyax » Tue Mar 05, 2019 9:30 pm


I am new to devkitPro and Switch Development and I am developing Homebrew app using libnx.
What I'm suffering is multi-threading. In my app a thread seems to block other threads. I think it is due that my process uses only one CPU core. I find the function svcSetThreadCoreMask. I guess this function can control which thread uses which CPU core.

How can I use this function and make threads run parallelly?

Don't try to use svc functions at all. The easiest thing for you is probably C11 threads right now, see

As a bonus, C11 threads as implemented by libnx are preemptively multithreaded & load balanced across cores.
