    Tested 1.7 and the new Graphics packs are not that bad. Super Mario 3D world looks stunning at 4K and definitely destroys and dethrone my #1 artistic game Mario Galaxy 2.

    I wonder how much does upping the internal res impact performance.

    Huh? don't know what you mean...

    On my rig the impact in performance for upping the internal resolution is ZERO and yes you read it correctly..... ZERO but there is a huge difference in the visuals and most specially on my 4K TV :)

    Look at his nose during the scene with his sister it has a strange blue mesh around it, as does his sisters, it disappearers when your in the room with his grandma and returns to normal.

    Probably a glitch caused by the caching or compressed textures. I rarely look at that kind of things ;)

    Last year they said it was highly improbable to up the resolution from 720p, then bam! this comes along. Hafta give a standing ovation to the devs.

    Mario 3D World and Zelda WW look super in 4K. Don't forget to force anisotropic filtering to CEMU.

    There is something that seems off with these graphic packs here, while the quality of the image increases i am getting plenty of aliasing and the overall image is blurry as if no upscaling happened. If for example i play in dolphin 4k super mario galaxy all the edges are smooth and the image is clear while with cemu the edges have plenty of aliasing and the overall blurriness of the textures remains. So it's as if it upscales but not to 4k, can't really explain it. I play at 1080p btw.

    1.7.0 is the best Cemu version so far, hands down. I also noticed better FPS while testing Bayonetta and Xenoblade Chronicles X.

    The bad graphic quality always bothered me in Cemu, the emu author even said that increasing the internal resolution in Cemu was going to be impossible because of the way the Wii U handles the graphic so I wasn't expecting much on this matter and bam!, 1.7.0 have that issue covered with the Graphic Pack, this was one hell of a surprise, now Cemu looks better than a real Wii U because of it.

    And none of you said anything regarding the Shader Cache changes so far? shame on you!, this is also another big feature. The Shader Cache is the main thing that caused most of the stuttering in Cemu and in every Cemu version you needed to re-create the Shader Cache from the beginning again, that was a pain. In 1.7.0 you can finally transfer the Shader Cache to different Pc's and different Cemu versions, thus, you will avoid most of the annoying stuttering while playing.

    If none of you are aware, here you can download an updated Graphic Pack, it's being maintained by the community and it will include more games in the near future:

    I believe this is because it only force filters the textures with filtering to the stated resolution it doesn't actually change the native output resolution, without the graphic packs it filters them at 2x instead.

    Graphic pack is kind of convoluted term imo which implies it contains actual new textures drawn at higher resolution when reality it's just a texture upscaler settings file, for instance a 512x512 texture with lots of logos / writing still looks like shit no matter how much upscaling you do vs a 1024x1024 texture.

    Can anyone get cemu to recognize button input when launching through steam using a PS4 Controller? Since Steam natively supports the controller I was hoping to ditch DS4windows and the like for a stable and supported "out of the box" experience that Steam provides. (aka no more being at the whim of Microsoft or any other entity that seeks to hijack the controller therefore alleviating exclusive mode issues)

    I've already set it up to mimic an Xinput controller and this is the only emulator that doesn't play nice in my experience.
