Cemu Thread: Emulating Wii U Games

1.12.1 Preview video


Does it work without problems ? Can you finish game ? Does it crash ?
No games work without problems, so I'm not sure what's the level of issue you're looking for is specifically. I'm not able to finish the entire game every single new version, so unfortunately I can't answer that.

Xcx crashes on 1.12, 1.11.1, 1.11.6, tested by me on i7 6700k, gtx 1060, ws 10 x64 1709, i lost timeee a lot to find out the only good version above 1.7.5, is 1.10.0d, google it....i doubt will be fixed soon, freezes is the biggest problem for games, of course are some bugs in older builds, but better than crashing my game. I play like 40h with no crash, 1080p graphic pack, problem i have is - collectible range dont work for me, rest seems ok, idk why is this happenning. I tried 3 packs from github, also no one said what ''common'' vs ''uncommon'' do....sry my bad eg, im not native. Btw im at chapter 4, but i lose time grinding other members cause i dont know when i will need them......and take a lot of time that...

How is emulation of Zelda BoTW? I know that i can't reach full 60 fps on Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze, will Zelda run better (i have an I7 2600k and GTX970, 8gb ram) since it only needs 30fps?

Runs like shit get a switch
You stab the poor guy ''in the back'', lol, of course a game on a console runs almost perfect vs any emulator, but lets admit that price on Switch is high, is only my personal opinnion, also Nintendo make some miss and hit with memory stick and ''force you'' to buy them only from them, excuse my reply but I CANT stand this, i mean man, Ps4 pro is like 100E more, and you can compare those 2 ? remember that aside power, ps4 pro or even older one is ABOVE, Nintendo has bad habit to abandon old console after the new one appear, i mean titles. At least on Sony side, we know that not the case. So no, Switch is not for me at this price, maybe 250E maxim i give them for that piece of hardware....and to be more specific, what about memory to stock games ? are years now that ps3, xbox 360, ps4, xone HAS INTERNAL storage - but not with Nintendo..... i pass for now. The only good side of Switch will be some few exclusives, thats all.

Switch has sold for 250 on occasions.
Get a old wii u ( great for emilating 15+ systems)
Those can be bought for under 100 then pay 35 for zelda on sale.
 
Xcx crash in 5 min today, 1.12.1 - adios and good bye, i revert back to my old 1.10.0d. Beside that crash, he even lag like every few seconds, ty Cemu team for big ''improvements'' done.....game froze that you cant close Cemu, must be done from task manager, if you re lucky....

Actually, it runs better on CEMU. On Switch there are many instances where the game crawls. All these instances were steady 30fps, no stutters at all for me on my 4670. It's a bit tricky to achieve smooth fps with not a hint of microstuttering but it's doable, i did it, and finished the whole game with almost no drops. You just have to setup properly.

And of course, you get all the extras like higher resolution, AA, better anisotropic filtering, etc.

When i played the game on a friend's Switch it felt like a downgrade. The only thing CEMU doesn't have are some minor particle effects in some areas (like the Deku Tree area).

I almost have the same setup as you (2600K/8GB Ram/GTX 1080) and can tell you that BoTW has a better framerate and superior image quality in CEMU than on WiiU. I use a graphics pack that locks the framerate at 30 fps. It will occasionally dip below there, but not nearly as much as on WiiU. Remember this is running at a much higher resolution. I think I was also using the 4K graphics pack. As for DKTF, iirc the WiiU version is 720p/60fps and although you get better image quality in CEMU, it won't perform at a solid 60fps (at least not for me) at any resolution. IIRC there were some levels (the mine cart levels) where the framerate was cut in half. So DKTF has some issues on CEMU but it is fully playable and runs at 60 fps for 90% of the game. BTW - if you're going to be playing BoTW, make sure you use a DS4 controller and DS4Windows as some shrines require the tilt function.

Have you actually tried it? That sounds like more than plenty. I could run Tropical Freeze on my i5 750 / gtx 970 at 4k back on ancient builds with dips to mid 50s, so I'd assume it'd only be better now.

Try upgrading directly next time so you're making use of a transferable cache, the stuttering from shader compilation is something that's not going away on modern emulators.

A think one version of Cemu for one game is better in future...

Sry for double post, i wanted to reply to previous user and i cant do it -

Sry mate, you in late with the news, i update the vid text, 1.12.1 has other bugs on Xcx beside random freeze, also one of my friend test it and he has same problems, sound is louder but GLITCHES are more, camera stuck near main one time and i exit Cemu cause i never got that bug, lag and stutter are more. The good part is Tokyo Mirage seems to work, but i dont test it myself, i play only 1 game once until fin, so FAR 1.10.0d NEVER crashes on me, im over 60h in game....and 55 was on 1.10.0d.

The part i dont like is that...main char cant get all arts, by ex if you go ahead on some tree, you get on final one - and you revert back on another maximed, arts and skills i think cant be learned, only on last one if youre max on that tree.

And here is the proof that 1.12.1 is worse or im the biggest badlucker in world, is 50 min vs 7 or 10 of yours.


Great, send me your save and I'll record 51 minutes of footage which I guess is all it takes. Open Cemu, right click the game in the games list, hit 'Save directory' and package those files.

I already posted in my vid, is easier for me - random freeze can OCCUR anytime, for me was even after 5h, i have 7 on 1.12.1 - so is RIP capisci ? and with 73h on board at 1.10.0d, you make score. Problem was you ignored what i say about other problems Xcx has now on 1.12.1, that look you occasional gamer at most.

BTW - Tokyo Mirage i didnt test it, but more users acuse bugs with textures and sound....and you didnt respond in my chat....
