Functioning Wii emulator appears online




CEMU, an emulator for the Wii on Windows, has appeared online. The emulator for applications for the Nintendo console is still in an early development stage. The touch input works emulate the mouse and the buttons of the Wii U GamePad via the keyboard.

The first reference to the emulator appeared online on the GBAtemp forum. CEMU can read encrypted Wii images and RPX / rpl files. Nothing has been optimized, which means that loading times are long and low framerates rule rather than the exception. It only runs on 64bit Windows 7 and higher, and uses OpenGL 3.3. Only Nvidia video cards seem to still good picture. Intel video cards provide strange image and AMD has not tested the developer.

Players can still only operate the emulator with the keyboard and mouse, the touch input works with the mouse and the buttons and sticks are translated into emulated input of a Wii U GamePad. The settings can not be adjusted at this time hereof. The developer is planning any “two weeks” a new version for posts, but if that is feasible, time will tell. The project is among others to find on Github, but the source code is not public.
