Gamedev1909 has announced that the best Nintendo Switch emulator, Ryujinx, can now run some 2D games with almost constant 60fps. These games that are already working great with Ryujinx are Puyo Puyo Tetris, The Binding Of Isaac and Cave Story.
So the pirating begins....
I thought that would of started when the Tegra was hacked to run unsigned code.
You're late to the game
Never arrived to the game. Not interested in pirating games. People wonder why these game companies are the way they are.
Emulation is not piracy.
It depends from where did you get the rom.
Of course. But piracy can also happen on the original hardware. Emulation is just the means to play the software, it doesn't imply piracy at all. I use emulation all the time, but I don't pirate games.
You act likw it wasnt already happening
...so the comments about emulation being piracy begin... :/
Typical criminal responses. Smh.
The keyword here is “some”. And by “some” they mean games like Puyo Puyo Tetris, The Binding Of Isaac and Cave Story, which can be played easily on other platforms without the need of emulating. On top of that, you’ll need a very beefy PC to be able to achieve this, plus emulating the bigger AAA titles will not come for many years. At this point if you wanna play Switch games, you would be better off buying a Switch.
Only 2 of those games are shown as playable - the rest have issues or just won't load at all.
The portable form factor alone makes it worth being a switch but impressive work on the emulator all the same :D.
"plus emulating the bigger AAA titles will not come for many years. " Willing to bet it will happen way sooner than later.
When I build my cheap Pc Ill be using this
Might need more than just a cheap PC for emulation. A general rule is that the PC will need 3 times the power of the desired emulated device in order to function at a basic level.
Um no thats not true at all. I run CEMU on my 6yr old laptop now its just 30fps. A 350 to 400 PC can run a Wii U emulator no problem.
Running at 30fps is not 100% emulation which is what i was saying and extra horsepower required is to make up for the inefficiencies of the emulator itself. Added to the fact the switch is more advanced than the WiiU and using a different architecture then it will require even more power. Also added the the fact that PC parts are currently the most expensive they've ever been then a cheap pc will become a moderately priced PC. Even if it is around the 400 cost mark - that's still almost twice the price of the Switch itself.
not even interested for free
^ HARDCORE GAMER
People tend to forget that the best selling home console from nintendo was hacked too.
...and the PS2 as well, the best selling game console ever. Ain't a coincidence.
I don't think people have forgotten about it - The Wii Homebrew scene is still going strong and i think the only way to get the Wii Online anymore. I've hacked my Wii, stuck a 1TB USB HDD in it and now i run all my Wii and Gamecube games straight from it. Even got ports of Doom and Quake running with pointer controls! Hacking and modding the Wii makes it an even better system. Similar with the PS2; hard drive attached to USB and running all games straight from it because we all should remember just how bad a lot of the PS2's lasers are.
I cant even get the WiiU emulator to work properly.
