    Moved it to the emulation section.

    Your problem is that you downloaded only one part of a larger file.

    It's usually game.rar, game.r01, game.r02... And so on. You need all the parts (volumes) to be able to extract the file.

    No, this section consists of people who make tutorials. If you wanna ask for something, not here.

    It's because when a mod moves a thread, it's a default setting to keep a redirection link in the old sub-forum for a day, so that everyone who went to it now can find the new place for it.
    That link makes it stay on the main page too unfortunately. :) it should be gone soon enough.

    Since you put this as a tutorial I'll allow myself to be an a-hole.

    Go to a gamestop or whatever, buy a Wii U, buy the game (it's a Nintendo Select title) if you like it so that they can make more games like this. We gamers vote with our wallets. In return you get full speed, no glitches and you get to play it exactly as it was meant to play. Even better, stop playing on PC altogether and feeding Nvidia/AMD/Intel for their overpriced pieces of hardware.

    Thanks mate.

    Who exactly do you think makes the GPU in the Wii U and CPU/GPU in the Switch, Xbox One, and PS4?

    And
    And who exactly feeds them big profits? A full fledged $250 console or a $1000 graphics card?

    A $1000 graphics card that can outperform the $250 console in pretty much everything.

    You do know that nVidia and AMD have low-end graphics cards as well, right? A quick search on Amazon finds a Radeon R7 250 with 2GB VRAM for $80.

    Never mind that in the case of Wii U, Nintendo specifically chose ancient parts:
    • PowerPC 750 aka "G3", comparable to a 1999 Power Macintosh
    • Radeon R600/R700, equivalent to Radeon HD 2000-4000 (the current AMD lineup at the time was the Radeon HD 7000 series)

    Hahaha this graphics card can barely run recent AAA games and it's just a graphics card, a whole PC to go with it goes for no less than $400, power source controllers case and all - the way a console is.

    Consoles drive hardware prices down, as people realize they just need to spend that much to play the latest AAA games. While allowing to be milked out of your money by buying overpriced PC hardware does the opposite.

    I did say "low-end". You don't need a $1000 graphics card to play games in general.

    PCs can also be used for stuff *other* than games, such as software development, office work, etc. You know, the stuff that lets you make money and allows you to buy the "overpriced" PC hardware.

    For the record, my current PC is a ThinkPad X230 with Intel Core i5-3210M and integrated graphics. I use it for productive work and some older games.

    Haha almost everyone has a PC for work and stuff. Having a PC for latest AAA gaming isn't cost effective at all. But let's not get too much out of topic, yes? Thanks

    Maybe for you in Brazil, but in the rest of the world prices are easily cost effective. :P

    Nah, I cited avg prices in US. Should I link newegg or something?

    And this is getting way too out of topic, which is against the rules and I already said what I wanted to. If you would now help the OP with his pikmin 3 emulation tutorial and be more helpful than I was, that would be a welcoming addition. Thanks
