heya , sorry if this was asked before somewhere (looked it up could not find a thread for it).

i have the wii u version and i noticed FP drops in some village (kokoro?) i do not remember the name, it is a huge village.

in there the fp drops and game lags in certain areas, i was curious about this fp drop, whether it is also in the switch version ?

i did google it, and people say it is the same on the switch while it is docked, but better when in handheld mode?

could someone please confirm this for me, because i plan to buy botw for my switch, my switch has been sleeping for the past month, have not turned it on for so long.

i have only disgaea 5c on it, and thought i should get botw for now (i am playing the waiting game like many of you around here for the hax stuff).

i am aware there is some updates for botw on switch ,do these updates fix the fp drops , or would i need no updates as long as i am playing in handheld mode, i mostly play in handheld mode, so if the fp does not drop there then i will get it for my switch.

and lastly, do you guys think we might get some sort of save management homebrew app ? because i would like to backup the save of botw in case hax come out ,would not want to lose any hours put into it.

BOTW has frame drops in both handheld and docked mode on the switch. I've noticed it in kakariko village when going up to the master sword pedestal.

hot damn :/

could you confirm whether the fp drops also in other areas in the world?
i noticed in the wii u version it does drop in quite alot of places (non village areas) hmm , this is a bummer, i thought it was going to be much better fp wise on the switch.

Frame drops occur in both the Switch and the Wii U versions of Breath of the Wild, particularly in places like Korok Forest and Kakariko Village. However, one of the updates to the game dramatically reduces the number of frame drops in part by temporarily and subtly decreasing the resolution in some areas. In other words, the game updates for Breath of the Wild are highly recommended.

    It sounds similar tho
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    They do. They both use a six-channel FM synthesis.
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    And some master system games support fm synthesis

    Speaking of wonder boy, i didnt know adventure Island was actually the first game of the wonder boy series
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Xdqwerty, Me neither.
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    And then adventure Island became its own series

    The wonder boy series is kinda confusing
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    Just look at this:

    Two Wonder Boy 3s?

    Yea

    Monster lair and the dragon's trap
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    That's understandable, especially if they both have the same name. Dragon's Trap is a remake of the 3rd game, whereas the 3rd game is the OG version of Dragon's Trap.

    Confusing af
