    So,I'm going to get a new Pc in next week,and I've concluded to a final build,including:
    CPU:i5-7400
    GPU: gtx 1060 3gb

    The main reason for building this pc is gaming,but I'd like some emulating too,if possible.

    I have 4-5 games in mind,will they run at playable framerate on this pc ?
    1)Super Mario 3d World
    2)Legend of Zelda : Breath of the Wild
    3)Paper Mario Colour Splash (I know there are graphical glitches with this one,but,do they make it unplayable ?)
    4)New Super Mario Bros U
    5)Super Smash Bros 4

    1. Plays great on pretty much any modern hardware.
    2. Solid 20 fps most likely. Occasionally higher but fully playable.
    3. Should run just fine but there is a bug where it freezes when you have less than 6 cards. I haven't got that far yet but from what I understand this is game breaking.
    4. Plays great on pretty much any modern hardware.
    5. Should run fine when it runs. Lots of emulation problems though.

    So,on the Paper Mario the are no other problems besides game-freezing bugs ?
    And,what exactly do you mean by ''emulation problems'' ?

    For paper mario depending on which direction a character is facing they may be completely white. (haven't checked 182 yet)
    For Smash. Crashes after fights randomly. US version doesn't work with updates and dlc (182 checked) and EU needs to disable input before starting or it freezes on black screen. Some have reported it is as broken as the US version now on 182 but I don't have the EU version so can't confirm. Also audio problems. It's probably a toss up between smash and xcx as to what is the most broken working game in cemu.

    Update: So far I've only checked NSMBU and Colour Splash,NSMBU runs great,some minor graphical glitches,but they're random,I guess.Colour Splash struggles through the Start Screen,and the sound there is ear-reaping.After I press A the game gets quite faster,has some random fps drops,but can't get past the boat cutscene.

    Yeah some recent build broke pmcs audio. To get around the crash after the video you can rename the video file in the game files. It will cause the game to skip the video and not crash. If the video plays you have like a 1 in 10 chance of not crashing.

    Rename it to anything else I suppose ?
    Update #2:
    NSMBU started having ridiculously long loading times,runs pretty much normally besides that.
    BOTW shows a wallpaper at the begining,then it dissapears,only writing ''press a''.The first cutscene is blank,but the subtitles show up normally,but then the game freezes after ''open your eyes'' thing.I guess I have to rename the cutscenes here too ?

    Yeah rename to anything for pmcs.

    On BOTW videos work just fine. You just need cemuhook to decode them. That specific crash is often the result of someone running v0.9.0, which doesn't work, by editing version.txt to get around the system update message.

    I'm quite sure I have cemuhook installed (newest version too) :P and by the way,yes,i've changed the .txt to 1.0.0 when i first loaded the game,because it would otherwise prevent me from loading by poping up a message saying ''You need an update to play this game'' or something similar.

    Well you will never load into the game then. Go back to whoever told you to edit version.txt and thank them for wasting your time. Here is what you need to do.
    0. Before you do anything else edit version.txt back to 0.9.0.
    1. Load the game up once.
    2. After it fully loads and you get the system update message close cemu. *do not open cemu again at this point.
    3. Aquire the BotW update and DLC.
    4. Open log.txt and look at line 4 "Mounting local storage (updates)"
    5. Create any necessary folders to satisfy that file path.
    6. Place the updates code, content, and meta folders in that path.
    7. For updates create another folder called "aoc" in the updates path discovered in step 3.
    8. Place the dlc's code, content, and meta folders in the aoc folder.

    At first I had a problem,I opened the game after changing the Version.txt back to 0.9.0 and there wasn't any systep update message.I re-downloaded the game (while I also downloaded the DLC and the Updates)
    Anyway,after doing what you said,the game could open without the system update message but had the same issue; the game freezed after the ''open your eyes'' cutscene

    The second time I did that,the game freezed again,but after the freeze it had some crazy fps drops, it had like 0.43 fps.After 1-2 mins the same cutscene played,and thankfully,it had visuals,and it didn't freeze :P Game lags,but runs decently after getting some time.

    Anyway,thanks for your help,I'll update you if I download any other game. (And have issues with it)
