    They messed up the audio, it uses linear and not the regular N64 audio filtering, even Extrems admitted Not64 uses the same stupid linear audio.


    Wii U VC https://filetrip.net/dl?K6QoC2uKOa
    Real N64 https://filetrip.net/dl?r6wwd6QDbD

    You can hear the wind instruments experiencing distortion in the fourth and fifth notes. This is not how real N64 hardware sounds as I've played the real thing, so yeah. Nintendo screwed the pooch on this front. Every other emulator gets it right with LLE (low level emulation) audio, so.......

    I'll display the linear interpolation on a spectrogram if I have to.

    that's what your complaining about?...really?!... [​IMG]
    game plays smoother than any emu i've tried (and doesn't crash at random) and plays faster than the original n64 too. that's ALL i care about.

    Runs fine on PJ64 with the Glide64 plugin. I've been playing on PC emulators for a while without any issues, so, Nintendo's emulator isn't the only one that plays the game. *Shrug* I'm complaining because emulators should get it close as possible. Is that too much to ask? For a company that has access to documentation, you'd think accuracy would be priority instead of "enough to get the job done".

    Not sure what specs or emulator you've been using, but DK64 runs fine on my PC.

    I mean you still have to pay an extra $16 for it while it costs nothing to emulate comfortably on the switch

    If/when we get emulators. Knowing our luck, it probably will be held privately for three years like the Wii U was.

    'Cause Nintendo is supposed to create the best emulators possible since it's their own freaking console

    They're barely any good to play turn-based games like Pokémon and Earthbound

    Some thought I discovered this in the first place lol
    (Kotaku and CNET, but still, applaud them for actually asking me about it, that's actual journalism work. I get the moment to correct them :D)

    I may have some additional info on this I'm just going to copy paste this paragraph I made.

    Hey I have something really important regarding the NES emulator on the Nintendo Switch. I had this really odd experience with my switch that when I had left and returned to it, NES Golf was on my screen. I played it and it played normally, but it was night time for me so I wasn't thinking about the importance of this. I went to do some research on this and I didn't find anything about it until I looked at what was discovered by the modding community. They found this "'Flog' NES emulator. Installed on retail systems but not known to be launched by anything currently." I believe that "Flog" is simply "Golf" backwards and I had somehow caused it to launch. Now this is entirely your choice to believe me or not, I totally blame myself for not recording any of it and since it happened randomly to me, I do not think I can repeat this myself.

    tl;dr I somehow activated NES Golf and I believe "flog" to be "golf" but backwards

    Exactly what I do.
    Emulators on phones themselves, I use them only for RPGs which are turn based.
    I have all main Pokemn and Mother games in there.

    Playing any FPS or precision-heavy platformer on a phone is just plain stupid and really uncomfortable.
    Also, buying a controller for it is not appealing to me.
    Unless I have a phone with a huge-ass screen and some octacore processor or some shit like that, it's uncomfortable.

    To me, there's a certain beauty in having a proper console/handheld hacked with multiple emulators.
    Do I have the itch to play on my TV?
    Wii U got me there.
    Do I go on vacations or have a long trip ahead?
    N3DS (and Switch hopefully in the near future) have my back there as well.

    Going for the phone alternative is cheap, yeah, but I find enjoyment and gain some knowledge about the console in the hacking progress. More so if I get to enjoy my entire Nintendo library of games in just one console itself.
