Cemu

competition

Cemu is a closed source emulator which is considered to be in experimental state, yet it's able to play a handful of games quite smoothly. Please check compatibility list for more details.

 

Extensions:

   Cemuhook

  • GamePad input source override for cemu, including full motion sensing support (requires additional software, see the guide)

  • Adds code/data patching to your games at load-time, which you can activate and share the same way you do graphic packs!

  • Think of it like a pcsx2 plugin, implementing something not in the core


   Cemu Graphics Pack

  • Community Graphic Packs which is used to upscale and change your Wii U games


   BetterJoy

  • Allows the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller, Joycons and SNES controller to be used with the Cemu Emulator and System-Wide

Most Recent Changes

  • general: Fixed even more race conditions which could lead to low performance, softlocks or crashes (g,h,i,j,k)


  • general: Fixed several race conditions which could lead to crashes or softlocks in any game


  • general: Reworked PowerPC and Cafe OS threading from the ground up
            Summary of changes:
            - The existing single/dual/triple-core CPU modes are replaced with 'Single-core' and 'Multi-core' mode
            - The new multi-core recompiler will use one full CPU thread + up to two extra threads (dynamically scales with actual CPU usage by the emulated CPU)
              Multi-core mode has slightly better performance compared to triplecore mode
              Overall CPU utilization on the host should be reduced for games that are not heavily multi-threaded (e.g. Super Mario 3D World, Twilight Princess)
            - Decreased overhead in all modes (minor performance boost)
            - Fixed a few multi-core race conditions
            - The CPU mode 'auto' option will use single-core mode for CPUs with three or less physical cores and multi-core mode for anything above        

        

  • OpenGL/Vulkan: Optimized PM4 command processor (up to 5% performance gain depending on the game)
