    A new version of Cemu, the well-known Wii U emulator, has been released! The highlights for this new versions are the ability to emulate gamepad audio, a fix for a bug affecting VSync on some setups (which was reportedly not working for some users on previous versions starting from 1.13), a few improvements made to the recompiler & GPU buffer cache accuracy setting to avoid crashes and finally a rework of the upscaling filters (with the notable additions of two new ones - Nearest Neighbor and Hermite - plus the ability to load custom ones via graphic packs).

    As usual, you can find the full changelog down below:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    You can get the new release from Cemu's website (a link is included down below!)

    You never needed mods my dude. And yea the performance on higher resolutions became much much better not to mention that a 1050 ti is enough for 1440p

    I hope they implement the Vulkan API sometime this year, because I have a decent AMD CPU and GPU (Ryzen 2600x and Vega 56) though can't play without occasional stuttering (at full speed which is not unplayable but just annoying and only solution is to use Linux afaik).

    True that. Even if I switched to Linux and I already have some Wii U ports on my Switch, as a Ryzen 1600 + RX 580 owner it'd be awesome to see more games and applications use Vulkan in general!

    Trust me guys. Vulkan will definitely be available in abt 3 months at most. Exzap and the other developer are working hard to deliver it since like 6 months ago.

    *if you own a decent nividia gpu
    If you have amd forget it, the dev only has an nvidia gpu and only optimizes stuff for it and because its closed source nobody can actually help in trying to fix it

    Not true at all. The only reason amd gpus can't work with dual core and triple core modes which benefits botw incredibly is because of their shitty opengl support.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    The devs promised its support in a year in mid 2018 and showed early footage of it in late 2018 iirc. Bsod gaming brings all the news abt this stuff and communicates with exzap on the discord often.

    last time I checked mid 2018, they were saying vulkan was not a priority and will not bring big improvements anyway (according to them)....vulkan and amd are clearly the least priorities on their list.... anyway I switched from rx 580 to gtx 1070 anyway... I don't really care anymore

    i don't remember them saying it isn't a priority but they're definitely working on it. and it's probably gonna make 60 fps possible for budget cpus like the 2nd and 3rd gen i5s and the recent i3s since vulkan is just a better opengl

    Will you add a DX12/Vulkan graphics backend? It would improve speed!
    Despite what you may have heard, DX12 or Vulkan will not magically increase speed. Those APIs do perform better in some situations but none of those apply to Cemu. The architecture of the Wii U GPU adds some additional constraints that almost nullify any optimization potential given by DX12/Vulkan. Nevertheless, a Vulkan backend is planned for the far future.

    In 1.15.2 Twilight Princess HD crash and make CEMU forceclose when you ride Epona.
    1.15.1 work fine.

    That faq hasn't been updated since 2016 tho. Follow the emulator news and you'll see.

    Everything deserves an emulator, especially considering how "shitty" this console is. Preservation is important. And being able to play these games in high resolutions is pretty cool. Botw sucks I don't even care.

    Still 100% focus on making BOTW run better then on original Hardware ?

    Kind of lost interest after one year of "*improving botw" only updates.
    I know in the original thread there were several people calling it botw emulator instead of wiiu emulator already xD

    It certainly is: but a closed source, partially for-profit emulator, which makes a big fuss of its upscaling and HLE isn't exactly the best definition of preservation...


    ...and with hardware prices at an all-time low, even users reeks of being cheap while getting a lesser experience at the same time...

    Somewhere, over there!
    Following this broken logic, emulators as a whole are bunk.

    I certainly think so when I have original hardware available: the complete experience is not replicable, imho
