DISCLAIMER: ALL GAMES WORK WELL EXCEPT FOR GIANTS AND SPYRO'S ADVENTURE IF YOU WANT TO PLAY THOSE GAMES I RECOMMEND CHECKING OUT MY OTHER THREAD ON HOW TO PLAY SKYLANDERS ON PC WITHOUT A PORTAL. (https://gbatemp.net/threads/play-skylanders-on-pc-without-the-portal.589312/)

Requirements:
- Wii U USB Helper | https://github.com/FailedShack/USBHelperInstaller/releases
- Zadig | https://zadig.akeo.ie/
- A Wii/Wii U or Playstation portal of power | Try looking on eBay, Amazon or maybe in a Thrift Shop
- And a decent PC


Basic written tutorial:
Step 1. Download and Install Wii U USB Helper
Step 2. Choose you're region and choose a place to store your games (The program will download them for you later)
Step 3. Enter titlekeys.ovh as the title key site
Step 4. Now you can search for Skylanders in the program right-click -> download game and click yes to update
Step 5. Click start downloading
Step 6. Go to download manager and turn on Unpack in "Action to perform once downloading is over" and wait until the game is finished downloading
Step 7. Now download Zadig and open it
Step 8. Go to Options -> List All Devices
Step 9. Choose Spyro Porta or Spyro Portal (Depending on your region) and make sure right driver is set to WinUSB else you can use the arrows to change that, now click reinstall driver (You have to have your portal plugged in for it to show up in Zadig)
Step 10. Open Device Manager and go into "Universal Serial Bus devices" and right-click Spyro Porta or Spyro Portal click Update Driver, Browse my computer for drivers and Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer
Step 11. Select "USB Input Device" from the list that appears
Step 12. Now go to the directory where you install the ROMs from there go into "Place where you stored the roms/DATA/EMULATORS/Cemu/BIN" If there is nothing in that folder first go to Wii U USB Helper and click Play this game on PC while you have the downloaded game selected now it should download the emulator files and if asked always select the newest version of cemu and install cemuhook
Step 13. Now when your in the Cemu Bin folder open Cemu.exe set the mlc01 path as "Place where you stored the roms/DATA/EMULATORS/Cemu/BIN/mlc01" and the game path as "Place where you stored the roms/DATA/EMULATORS/Cemu/GAMES" and click Download community graphics packs
Step 14. Now you can configure your input make sure the first controller is emulating a Wii U Gamepad or else some things don't work
Step 15. Now go to the Options -> General settings and go to Graphics and if you can set the Graphics API to Vulkan and Graphics Device to your Graphics Card (If you have one)
Step 16. Set Upscale filter to Bilinear
Step 17. And if you want to see your FPS you can enable that in Overlay I like it in the top right
Step 18. Now right-click the game and click "Edit graphic Packs" and enable Resolution and set it to 1920x1080 and enable Shadow Resolution and leave it
Step 19. Now you can start the game and enjoy!

    you can make some basic non-interactive sites like a blog or a newspaper or something
    Gift
  • felix.200 @ felix.200:
    you don't, you can just use html or js
    Gift
  • Julie_Pilgrim @ Julie_Pilgrim:
    dont forget css
    Gift
  • felix.200 @ felix.200:
    that's just styling

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    If you're designing from the ground up you'll need php to store registration information into mysql databases
    Gift
  • felix.200 @ felix.200:
    you don't need php you just need some backend if you need registrations
    Gift
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    If you use a service it's still technically not your coding unless it's open source
    Gift
  • felix.200 @ felix.200:
    The backend code can be written in a lot of languages

  • Julie_Pilgrim @ Julie_Pilgrim:
    " that's just styling" fair but styling is important
    Gift
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Yeah but you still need to know more then css html and js
    Gift
  • felix.200 @ felix.200:
    it certainly is
    Gift
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Styling is not important lol
    Gift
  • felix.200 @ felix.200:
    but css is for designers or full stack devs

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    If you have enough information stored users could care less if it's black and white

    Plenty of phpbb themes are set to default and have 50k members

  • Julie_Pilgrim @ Julie_Pilgrim:
    yeah but i would prefer websites to not look like dogshit
    Gift
  • felix.200 @ felix.200:
    Why would you need more than js, html and css for a basic website? You might need sql for your database but thats about it
    Gift
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    If you want to truly call it your work that's why lol
    Gift
  • Julie_Pilgrim @ Julie_Pilgrim:
    actually that makes me think what's the line between "tolerably bad" and "this is so dogshit i won't even think of using it"

  • felix.200 @ felix.200:
    what? lol
    Gift
  • felix.200 @ felix.200:
    If I write all my js css and html why would the work not be mine?

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    A basic site sure doesn't need it but if you want a community it's important

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    But still style isn't everything when it comes to websites
