Cemu v1.8.2 – Performance improvements, improved game compatibility and more


Not much to say, but I'm a guy who's interested in modding/hacking portable consoles/devices.

    Support them? Never happening.

    Likely one of the worst emulation developers out there. They lock the source code, so no one else can help. If they aren’t using Nintendo proprietary stuff they have nothing to hide.

    They enable a destructive mode of DRM that always pings back their server, even on public builds.

      You would do the same if you got ~$22.000 per month.

      The problem is the quality of releases especially 1.8.1b where they broke the timer on Xenoblade Chronicles X. And no one can tell me the bug slipped by since it’s apparent immediately after booting and loading a save. Either not 5 minutes of testing were done before the release or they did not care cuz you know we can wait for new version (1.8.2) while the patreon money keeps rolling in.

      Unfortunately for every user like me and you there are 1000 other stupids that fork over the cash. What i want to say is : We don’t matter.

      You refuse to support them but I bet you still happily use their emulator….smh

        There’s nothing wrong with that.
        Their emulator is public & free (except the patron ver), you can happily use one without ever supporting (tho it’s a bit unethical in my view).

      Believe it or not, closed-source is not evil. There are plenty of reasons for keeping a project closed besides “trying to hide”. As a developer, I totally understand another developer’s decision to want to work on a project on their own/within their team and not open it up to everyone. Part of it is about maintaining your own standards, goals, etc., and part of it may be the pride of being able to boldly state, “I made this.”

      DRM is entirely the wrong term for what you are talking about. DRM is an attempt to prevent users from acquiring a product through unauthorized means – cemu is free to download so there is absolutely no need for any such measures. Just because cemu communicates with a server (probably sending diagnostic information) does not mean it is DRM.

      • Patron says:

        By DRM he means DRM on the patron versions. Patron builds cannot be run by someone who did not pay them on patreon and need a crack before it can work for non patrons.
        That is DRM.

      • Waka says:

        The benefit of open source, if you can’t support with money, you can support with development (coding, debugging, etc).
        Contributors have to follow standards, conventions, roadmap set by project owner, so I doubt it’s the issue.

        The only possible reason, I think they afraid someone will fork/branch their code, and make separate project based on cemu.

    • kek says:

      people that want everything to be open source are just entitled.

    It’s PATREON

    • TehCupcakes says:

      Yes, the site is called Patreon… But a person who supports a project is a patron. The article has it correct.
