Cemu emulator version 1.15.15 released, adds surround sound support

LnO2PQJ (1).png

Two weeks have passed since the last update for Cemu, which means it's time for another version upgrade. Everyone's favorite Nintendo Wii U emulator, Cemu, has received a new minor bugfix release, fixing uncommon performance-related issues, giving support for mono and surround sound, and adding separation for the emulator's gameprofiles. There's no Vulkan backend yet, for those patiently waiting for it, as the releases build to an eventual v1.16.0 update.


# Cemu detailed changelog for 1.15.15b
# Patreon release date: 2019-09-20
# Public release date: 2019-09-27

# New in 1.15.15b (public release):

GX2: Fixed a bug that could lead to random performance drops or crashes under rare circumstances

# New in 1.15.15:

general: The default gameprofiles that ship with Cemu and the ones with user edits
are now in separate folders. This change was made so that extracting all
files from the Cemu.zip into an existing Cemu installation no longer
overwrites any game settings

AX: Added support for mono and surround sound
AX: Added API AXSetDeviceRemixMatrix, AXGetDeviceRemixMatrix

GX2: Guarantee usage of locale independent number formats when inserting preset variables into custom shaders (#190)
GX2: Added optional VRAM stat to overlay (Win 8.1 and above only)
GX2: Tweaks to cache management on OpenGL to prevent internal out-of-memory crashes (#176, #186)

Note:
(#xx) refers to bug tracker issues resolved by this change. See http://bugs.cemu.info/projects/cemu/

also kinda sad it isn't open source, but great work anyway
Yeah, but I doubt open source would speed up the development process at all.

Look at Decaf for example, an open-source Wii U emulator that is nowhere near the level that Cemu is at. Nobody's willing to do serious work unless there's a lot of money/demand for it, and most people are pretty content with having a closed team doing the work for them.

It's pretty obvious that the few people who were down to make serious work made Cemu closed-source just for the money, but I'm not complaining. They do good work and deserve some in return.

It is not a matter of speeding up the devlopment, i didn't said i wanted the project to be a comunity project, just the source to be public.

    Not so sure about that - the tendency for "graphics uber alles" tends to lead to very high power consumption

  • KenniesNewName @ KenniesNewName:
    If you look at what's now portability graphics are catching up to console quality

    Nintendy is a huge example of not everyone caring about powerful specs most that do will be hardcore PC players anyway

    The thing is that the IATA rules impose a pretty hard limit of 100Wh on battery sizes for lithium batteries - and it doesn't look like Li is going away soon

  • T @ trimesh:
    So if you want (say) 4 hours of runtime you need a maximum system-level power consumption of 25W

    Yeah but we already have AAA titles looking fine on tablet form 1080p displays

    For reference, the PS5 is rated at 350W and the Xbox series X at 275W - and that's console only, without any display
