This kind of assumes that someone has the computing power to play on an emulator, and CEMU is kind of a shitshow right now compared to Dolphin or PSX.

CEMU is far better than Dolphin actually, because the Wii U game library is much smaller, they have optimised it per game greatly, games like Xenoblade Chronicles X, Splatoon or Super Mario 3D World at 1080p, 60 frames locked, on CEMU with a 5 year old AMD FX shitbox with a R9 380 works great.

Xenoblade is a solid 30 for me. Less demanding games like Super Mario 3D World are fine at 60 FPS even when using 1080p patch.
Sure you are using the latest CEMU? I know CEMU was still shit until a few months ago.

Frameskip is no fix for anything, it will just make the experience worse. Mostly included as a temporary fix by most emulators.

I haven't had any problems with Splatoon, seriously, all the games I play on CEMU are 10/10 in terms of performance.

obviously waste your 400 bucks to play Zelda on the real thing instead of wasting it on a PC that has a library that's over a thousand times bigger and still an emulate

>> No.59225505

frameskip can help get the game simulation speed up
the game ran at around 30fps, but since it's normally a 60fps game, the simulation is half normal speed, moving around is all slow-motion
i'd be fine with 30fps if the simulation was normal speed, so a good frameskip would fix my problem

(ps. i understand that frameskip isn't very straghtforward to implement in an emulator, so i'm not complaining)

A console that will be outdated in performance one year after release, just like PS4/XO. You see, the problem here is that consoles don't have too much going for them nowadays, unlike back in the PS2 era and before when consoles actually played an important role in CG development.

This all could be solved maybe if companies stopped producing consoles/games for consoles and focus exclusively on the PC market (which is quite slim) but, from a business viewpoint it's a no-no.

Seeing how underpowered it is I'm really worried about what are people at Nintendo really thinking. Then again, assuming Switch is the heir to 3DS/DS and also assuming they won't release another console to follow WiiU then I guess we can't ask too much for it as it's focus lies entirely on mobileshit.

Now, I'm actually impressed that UE4 now supports Switch.

Yeah, I don't buy fucking consoles. Just saying that within this peasant console race, you might as well give hardware that is somewhat reasonably close to the other platforms. I'm not playing Mario any more.

>That's the point of a LOT of things about the Switch.
I agree, but it's still abysmal. They should have pushed for the Pascal architecture. If they just don't give a shit, they need to make development on the Switch REALLY FUCKING EASY. And I mean easy. Give development toolkits, make publication simple, get a Steam-esque store started where people can publish their games and get voted into the market, et cetera. The Wii U had zero titles and the inefficiencies of Nintendo is showing.

Better outdated in a year than outdated 2 years ago. That is unless they take the initiative to make porting easy. No more, "You call me or I call you and we have a meeting about it" bullshit. Make development and publishing tools PUBLIC AND READILY AVAILABLE. Nintendo needs to not fuck around with this.

Unity is supposed to support it soon as well. UE4 titles are rarely ever going onto anything but a PC though. The projects all start off with compile times of 10 minutes and executable sizes 300mb+ right off the bat. It's a big problem and their Paper2D crap isn't worth talking about. UE4 isn't very modular unless you want to spend 8 months developing on it.

And this is why they are losing and will cont to lose for a long time until they add more games other than like 5 games and remakes of all the same games. The indie library is bad.

The biggest concern here is that Nintendo doesn't realize it's fanbase as well. You know who I saw at my Game Stop? People over 17 at least. I don't think a single person was around 16 or younger. Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if everyone was at least 18. (considering I'm 25).

We are in a decade that media is all around us social media, video, music and photos. We want these things and if nintendo is going to charge 60 a year for us then we better get a good deal out of this too. We don't even have a web browser in the thing so there's no real point of taking the switch to a coffee shop er something. Honestly, it's not a bad console as is, but the fact that they are limiting so much potential is sad.

as my friend said "Nintendo thinks like it's 1996 and can't get their head out of their ass"

Nintendo DOES know what they are doing as towards marketing but they are basing it off of Nostalgia. IE Pokemon. Pokemon is redoing the first few eps of Pokemon but longer to show Ash's journey starting with Pikachu but honestly, it's all for the 20+ year olds. The new fans (or younger) wont understand mostly.

So when you think about it, Nintendo doesn't care about what's new, they care about making money so we wont see anything really new cause they are afraid of a fluke. Lets just hope Mario odyssey and Splat2n are good. At least a newer IP is getting a 2nd game

You can argue that Nintendo makes consoles for the enjoyment rather than muh graphics, but when you have massive frame drops even at HD resolution you have to admit the thing is too weak.

OP3 has the same performance as a 1000$ pixel. Not a good comparison... There are plenty of cheap snapdragon 820/821 phones out there.

GFlops is literary the unit to describe 3D horsepower.

Mind you that the other consoles on the chart also have games optimized for it.
Also, why do you think third party developers don't have the same access to hardware and tools, they are optimized as much as possible, specially 3rd party Nintendo games, because Nintendo's strict licencing.

The biggest fail here is that the FIRST PARTY Zelda game it has for it, that's not even graphically impressive if it was 5 years old, is so optimized for the Switch it plays at 20 frames at 720p (undocked) or 30 frames at 900p (docked).

It's not supposed to compete with big names. It's a Nintendo console. You buy it for Nintendo games and third party partnerships. Grow the fuck up if you buy things because it's "more powerful" than anything else. This is literally a dick measuring contest for the prepubescent and virginal.

>it's a childs game if it doesn't have muh realism graphicks and guns
Why do you even have a trip on? You're a fucking bonehead, dude. Nobody gives a fuck who you are.

I think you fail to understand the PC/Mobile games are run so differently from console games. A PC will struggle to run Switch games. Hell even a spec'd out PC will struggle to run a PS4 game.

Meanwhle theres virtually no good games made for any platform in the Nu Millenium and historically the best games always have the least emphasis on graphics.

I wonder if anybody could get the nvidia android games running on it. I miss having Warband on a portable.

not sure if you're being sarcastic. But I do agree with what you said. Take PS and Xbox. The big sellers are FPS games, they are all garbage. So do you actually have any good games? Other than Naughty Dog and Rockstar games. You really don't. Nintendo has never been focused graphics, so more effort is put towards content. Giving games that are far superior to what's offered on the competition.
