    Finally! I have 4 wiimotes which I only use for Dolphin nowadays(don't use my Wii anymore), so it's cool that now they'll be useful for Cemu too :)

    I'm always impressed by how quickly this emulator has developed.

    But I have to say I'm surprised that wiimote support wasn't already a feature.

    I'd say Dolphin is one of, if not the most well optimized emulators around. That seems more like an issue with the processing power of your PC.

    I'll just be happy when this runs as good with AMD setups.

    Dunno about you, but I've finished Skyward Sword on Dolphin, using a real wiimote with plugged motion plus.
    I guess your computer needs an upgrade to play that without issues :/

    Also guys, I just tested it and it works perfectly!
    It's the same trick as dolphin, and you just need a Bluetooth dongle connected to a USB port.
    Make note that almost the whole WII U library doesn't require you to use a sensor bar, since they use the gamepad for full gameplay.

    I'm amazed that BotW even RUNS on my potato PC.

    Sounds nice, but I can't for the life of me get my wiimote to work (the same one that works just fine in Dolphin)...
