    Hello hello,
    I just wanted to know if there was anything currently in work about Wii U emulation.
    And by anything I mean anything. Does someone in the middle is even working on a Wii U emulator?
    I don't care if it's not possible yet to emulate wii U (it's like emulating ps3 I think, possible, but not optimised for a today PC, you play at 1Fps)
    If anyone has any information about Wii U emulation, please post them here :)

    Well there is this one in the research : https://github.com/exjam/wiiu-emu

    I also recall seeing some screenshots shared in some thread here (not sure if it was the same one), but even that I remember it was still far from even running a game, let alone being able to show a frame :).

    Dolphin Team said something about adding Wii U support I think. But not for a long time.

    Unless they somehow changed their mind or something, this is what they said : https://www.facebook.com/dolphin.emu/posts/552704644827978

    They said it explicitly : "And let's have a final word on WiiU support in Dolphin - no matter how skilled some of our developers might be, it won't happen for various technical reasons. Not now, and not in another decade."

    i interpreted it wrong. But there is a small chance itll happen within the next 5-6 years.

    Ofcourse there is always a chance for it to appear in that timeframe ^^, even if it had nothing to do with dolphin team :).
    It seems that Dolphin team decided to instead of searching on wii u emulation, they just focus on their current emulator to be one of the best emulators that can also be ported to different platforms easily in the future ^^.

    Not very long, but that's because it didn't differ much from the GameCube so Dolphin just kind of absorbed Wii support

    There is actually an emulator in the works which is able to run some commercial games.

    I have access to the emulator so I made these screenshots. Cannot reveal much more than that at this point, sorry.

    See... I want to say that it's not going to happen for a very long time and not to get your hopes up.

    But I said the same thing about the 3DS and now there's Citra.

    And I said the same thing about playing Wii U backups on the Wii U and now there's Loadiine.

    So who really knows? Though, I doubt your average computer will be able to handle it.

    It looks very good for the first Wii U emulator.

    Not even reveal the name or source or where it will be released? I sense bullshit.

    I have the built version of exjam's Wii U Emulator research, but I dunno what to do with it...

    It's a command line-based thing for some reason, and I've tried all combinations from the usage menu. But still no luck.

    Here's a screen:

    Can anyone give me a hint? Or is it just not ready yet?

    I dunno, it shows just enough texture/polygon crappage that it might just be real

    That research for me is 100 times real than those screenshots that would appear out of nowhere ^^ which tend to appear a lot randomly on youtube or soem fancy website that gets your survey for a download :D.

    You should check out my PS4 emulator if you think that's good. It runs every game (and even 360 games) at 60fps at 2160x1080p

    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    I'm going to release it next month. I still need to mess with it so that it upscales the games to 120fps and 4320x2160p and add online support and cheat codes. You can download it right now if you fill out only 3 surveys at superawesomeps4emulator.blogspot.com
