I'm in heaven. Or I would be if the online functionality worked. Hope they find a way around it so you can access uploaded levels in the game rather than having to hack the save games to play levels made on the Cemu version.

Mario Kart 8 also runs ridiculously well (At least after it's compiled all the shaders for a course).

Still playing around with it to get BOTW and a few other games to work but damn this is impressive stuff.


This encouraged me to try it again! Been trying out Bayonetta 2 which looks amazing in 4k, plus you can overclock emulated CPU in CEMU options so it runs better than on Wii U

Only thing though...CEMU's unstable as hell for me, it crashes all the time, with or without the CPU overclock D: Has it done the same for you at all?

I've only had one or two times where Cemu's locked up so far.

I've not tweaked any settings or anything yet though so it's mostly running on the defaults. It's ridiculously impressive.

Today I have been playing Wii Rock Band, on a PC, with a Guitar Hero guitar and a 360 Drum set.

Emulation is magical. :wub:

Picked up a couple of accessories that have made things much more authentic as well.

Got a Mayflash Sensor Bar for Dolphin. Wiimotes sync directly with it as well so I've been playing Wii Sports in HD.

Also got an N64 pad adapter too so I've been getting used to that as well.

I played DJ hero on dolphin using a real 360 turntable, but then i just rebought a 360 and the games for real. Still pretty rad though.

Apparently crashing in Bayonetta 2 isn't uncommon. The game isn't super playable yet. Was having a few issues with it myself when I tried it a few versions back.

However with anything else I've tried - mainly BotW - it's been without much of a hitch. Not one crash - well, not one I haven't effectively forced by switching between CEMU or another program or something.


I haven't been following CEMU too closely lately or using it at all, but apparently Tokyo Mirage Sessions went from being completely unplayable to running almost perfectly recently.

And in other news the Switch emulators have been making a lot of progress. Apparently Sonic Mania became fully playable a week or so ago, at double the speed on Ryujinx. Games like Odyssey and Splatoon 2 are booting up too but the emulators don't have 3D renderers yet.

Ah cheers for heads up, aye that would add up. Need to get round to ripping more games, thing is I haven't homebrewed Wii U properly so I have to use the web browser exploit...which has like a 1/4 success rate of not crashing :simper:

That's bonkers on the Switch emulator!

Want to try RPCS3 to play Everybody's Golf World Tour (I own a copy but have no means of ripping it to PC) but I have no idea where to acquire said game iso.

If someone could point me in the right direction via PM I would be extremely grateful.

I've been playing with some MSU-1 hacks for SNES games and it's an absolute revelation.

MSU-1 (Media Streaming Unit) is basically a "fictional" enhancement chip for the SNES. In the same way the Super FX and Super FX2 chips added additional functionalilty to SNES games, so does MSU-1.
It allows games to utilise CD quality audio as well as video into games.

It runs on a couple of SNES emulators and (Crazily enough) the original hardware using the SD2SNES adapter and basically shows what a SNES CD-ROM addon might have looked like.







Obviously as these are fan-hacks, quality and choice of music used will vary from game to game, but I'm blown away by how cool some of this stuff is.

Yeah the Mega Man X one is pretty sweet.

I've got one that replaces the music in F-Zero with the music from F-Zero X and another for Aladdin that adds in the music from the movie, though that one doesn't really work for me. Doesn't really fit the gameplay.

Some of the games are huge though.
Anyone wants a link to the pre-patched ROMS and necessary files can PM me.

Yeah MSU-1 is super neat, really got to do a playthrough with one sometime. It's a neat insight to what the SNES CD may have given us

The pack I downloaded had loads. One is a remix of Super Metroid called "Project Base" which seems to change things up a bit so I've started playing that.

Can't get RPCS3 to run at a playable framerate, even at a 720p resolution.

My GPU is a 1060GTX so I'm assuming its the game I'm trying to play that isn't fully emulated yet.

Yeah your GPU is more than good enough for any PS3 game.

The issue could be your CPU isn't powerful enough. The emulator isn't quite there in managing it optimally yet, but it will get there in time. After all, CEMU, a more developed emulator and one for a more powerful console can play most games well on my rig despite my somewhat weak CPU.

With my i3 processor I can only run Persona 5 at an average of 15fps (with a similar GPU you have), whereas people with an i7 or even an i5 can run it pretty much perfectly.

Ofc it might be a more game-specific problem as well.

So where are people getting their ISO files from anyway?

My CPU is an i5 so it must be the emulator itself, the game in question is Everybody's Golf World Tour which seems to run fine until you go to tee off and the framerate drops into single figures and eventually freezes entirely.

Tried Disgaea 3 too but I seem to have downloaded a corrupted ISO which doesn't work.

The RPCSX forums have a lot of information about how playable/unplayable a game is. Itll give you a good barometer of wether the game is jsut emulated poorly, or your PC sucks. An i5 probably isnt cutting edge when it comes to PS3 emulation really. Even my i7 struggles with RPCS3 in some games.

Are there any functional 360 emulators out there? Had a quick look but the ones that I could see play maybe 5 games really badly...

For me the way shader compilation works for RPCS3 basically makes it not worth using. You essentially have to play everything twice. Once to generate the shaders at a horrendously slow speed, before going back and playing it at the proper speed with the shaders already compiled. Unless I'm missing something, that's not really something I'm willing to do unfortunately.

At least with Cemu I have the option of getting a pre-compiled shader cache.

Not as far as I'm aware. Which I don't quite understand as there are loads of great 360 games so you would expect people would be pushing to get one that works well.

Seems like a continuation of the OG Xbox which still doesn't have a viable emulator (AFAIK) through lack of interest it seems.

Nope. Only 360 emu in active development I'm aware of is Xenia. And it's a long way away from being functional
