The team behind the amazing WiiU emulator, CEMU, has released a new version and YouTube’s ‘reznoire’ has shared some videos showing Bayonetta 2, Star Fox Zero and Mario Kart 8 running in 1080p and with 60fps on it.
That's nice.... but you should really focus your attention on making the sound less buggy...
The emulator was first released in October, they've made some amazing progress in only a few months. Emulators are usually multiple year long projects.
On top of what jmc8888 mentioned, sound emulation can be surprisingly tricky and performance impacting. As a nice example, the N64 emulator for PSP, while hardly more than proof of concept, games that worked somewhat decently like OoT still took a performance hit with sound enabled. With that in mind, I think that sound emulation is relatively low priority and is only focused on once performance is otherwise at a point where any problems caused by sound are easily identified without holding back primary functionality.
Sweet I was waiting for the new version of cemu to drop.
I'd rather see a kernal hack for Wii U which enables offtv play for GameCube and Wii games in the hacked vWii OS. They currently will display on the gamepad but the actual buttons on it won't work.
Then create consoles that can support 60 fps and 1080p? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Looks great even though my current system can't run it, there are a few Wii U games I want to play.
If people don't want to support the devs that make the games they want to play I guess that's their porogative.
People really love their Nintendo, they work so hard to get a emulation so they can play Nintendo games, compare to other systems they do not work hard to get those working, it tells Nintendo one thing, people really value their games and would do anything to play them
Or maybe people care about playing online and using features on other systems. Nintendo's online pales in comparison to xbl or psn. Also nintendo game files are no where near the size of ps or xbox games and nintendo consoles are obviously easier to hack with homebrew and emulate.
Rather just play em on wii u thanks
