I actually think the Wii U will be the last really difficult console to emulate (along with the PS3, which I hear still isn't quite there yet), so it's really cool to see the problem basically solved. It was less powerful than its contemporaries for sure, but its architecture doesn't map well to your usual gaming PC set up so that's what made it tough.

The PS4 and XBO are much more 'PC-like' internally, and my understanding is that the Switch has a fairly standard tablet architecture -- those are a somewhat simpler case, mostly about waiting for PC hardware to git gud (& I expect to see Switch emulation sooner rather than later, to be honest).

This certainly throw up a moral quandry. I would really like to play BotW but I'm not willing (or able) to shell out for a WiiU or a Switch.

What would Space Jesus do?

I thought that said Space Jebus. Haven't seen him about for years, wonder if he's on another forum?

Give me a linear Zelda any day of the week. Open world can strawberry floating do one.

That was one of my reservations in the lead up to BotW, despite how fun it sounded in previews. Over 40 hours later, I'm still excited and I've barely touched the main story.

It probably helps that there aren't many quest icons in BotW and I'm adding markers to the map myself to remind me of things that I want to explore later when I'm stronger or figured out how to solve a puzzle. Instead of being a checklist surrounded by an open world, it's an open world that I want to explore to find its secrets.

It's the same reason why Sega Saturn emulation is still far from perfect, the hardware isn't anything like what is commonly seen in modern PCs.

Even in its day the Saturn was a difficult machine to work on and very few developers (other than Sega's internal teams) could get decent performance from it.

Any of you played Yoshi in Sonic 2? It's really good.

That's cool that he still lurks, nice guy. Used to play 360 together with others from Gamesradar.

So there's a PS3 emulator doing a reasonable job of Persona 5 already

Hrrrnnnnng :datass:

I'll definitely go back to botw when the emulator is running flawlessly. For now it's 100% on the wii u, but God I wish I could have that resolution bump right now as my pc is more than up to it.

This should net a good FPS boost

-In 1.7.4 you can use disableGPUfence via the editing the correct file in your Gameprofiles folder under CEMU. Locate the one that corresponds to your game: USA is 00050000101c9400, for EU 00050000101c9500, and for JPN 00050000101C9300.

Open it up and add this to it:
Code:

[CPU]
emulateSinglePrecision = true

[Graphics]
disableGPUFence = true


First time using CEMU so is there a away of having it run at 1080p? Checked the Gameprofiles and they were already set to those values. Do you also use Vsync?

Looks flipping lovely but there are quite a few dips from 30fps. 4k pack is enabled too.

Its playable, even with the microstutters (Like when you attack something and it freezes for a split second) really does look lovely.

I think the game came with one cause when I load it up it loads a shader cache before going to the main menu.

It wont have one, id almost 100% guarantee it. What its doing is loading the cache youre building as you play. CEMU always loads a shader cache when loading even if you dont have a pre-existing one dnwnloaded. You can download a cache of 19k shaders on reddit which will really help with stuttering. Id bet when you load the game its loading a cache of maybe a few hundred, or a thousand shaders. That wont be enough to help too much with stuttering, only in areas youve already visited.


Compiling that 19k cached shader now so see if that helps. Downloaded some for Mario Kart 8 and Super Mario 3D which both work spot on apart from some sound glitches with music in SM3D.

So that trick has deffo improved FPS, ta Brer. Cutscenes still don't work unfortunately though, even with 1.7.4. Oh well, a small price to pay!

EDIT: aaaaand for some reason in shrines everything is super sped up.

Have a search for Cemu hook 0.4.0.0, that worked for me with cutscenes.
