    I think it would be cool to run some exe on wii u to play some pc games (like yandere simulator)
    but i don't know if it would be a hard task

    what do you think of it ?

    being able to run .exe is a thing, porting the GUI of an operative system to another is another one

    the Wine source code is public so porting that doesn't seem so hard

    the problem is related to drivers ?

    have we access to the 2GB of RAM and ARM CPU --> No

    So, impossible yet.

    A .exe interpreter is plausible but if Yandere Simuator (J'ai les culottes collector mdr) use OpenGL, good luck to port it with the GX2 library...

    So yeah IMPOSSIBLE.

    From experience, I would imagine Unity for Wii U games do use GX2. I highly doubt that it would use OpenGL for a number of reasons.

    Unity for Wii U does use GX2, it's the only Graphic "interpreter" for Wii U

    personally i'd like a port of the game but i don't think that YandereDev is a wii u developper to have access to the special unity version

    DOSBox-like emulator is possible. WINE is actually just a call translator, as we don't have sufficient info about the Wii U and its library, its really hard to translate win32 calls to whatever the type of calls the Wii U have (Maybe POSIX?)
