Cemu 1.7.4 4K Graphics Pack Addresses Legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild Graphics Issues
Legend of Zelda Cemu 1.7.4
(Last Updated On: April 4, 2017)

Cemu 1.7.4 is currently available for Patreon backers. If you don’t want to wait for April 9th to get here where you can download the emulator for free from the official Cemu website, you can pay $5 and get your hands on the backers’ copy from over on the Patreon page.

The release of Cemu 1.7.4 has brought forth a number of fixes, including fixes for the JIT recompiler, additional instruction sets to improve compatibility, new game profile updates, new profile options for graphics packs and new GPU upgrades and bug fixes.

They outline all of the updates over on the Cemu website where 1.7.4’s changelog can be viewed.

However, the real news here is that while Patreon backers are now having their way with Cemu 1.7.4, they’ve also run into problems getting the Wii U version of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to work properly. Thankfully, some enterprising individuals on the GBA Temp forums have provided links to one of the graphics packs made available to public to help fix some of the graphical issues that people have encountered when running Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on the Cemu Wii U emulator.

The 4K graphics pack for the Cemu can be downloaded from over on Github.

The pack offers optimizations for running the game at 4K, along with shader edits that fix some of the graphical artifacts and glitches encountered near the beginning of the game at the Shrine of Resurrection. There are also a few other tweaks to things like the bloom and texture rendering.

A lot of people have also been curious about how well Cemu 1.7.4 runs other games that aren’t The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. YouTuber reznoire did a preview video to give you a look at some of the improvements made to a wide range of popular games played in Cemu, which you can check out below.

You can download the latest version of Cemu right now if you contribute to the Patreon, or you can wait until April 9th next week and download the latest version of the emulator for free from the official Cemu website.

    Good Job caden

  • BFeely

    Those guys must be rolling in dough; wonder when Nintendo will investigate and perhaps find stolen code to sue these greedy scammers out of everything?

    • Benjamin

      Scammers? To most they’re heroes.

    • Disqusted

      Maybe if modern consoles didn’t only have around 1 good game on them.

      • BFeely

        How is that even relevant?
        These devs are making money hand over fist in a community that is dominated by freeware and open source emulators.

    • caden

      are you dumb? its not illegal to emulate especially if you own the console and the game you are emulating and cemu is non profit so they give you an option to not have to pay to get early access

      • BFeely

        You say they are non-profit; what are they doing with $41,000 per month?

        • caden

          that money helps them pay their bills so they can work on the emulator longer and not end up homeless. Its common sense because if they worked full time jobs then they would not have alot of time for working on this emulator. They are not scammers in fact what they have done so far is impressive as shit in that little amount of time.

        • caden

          i cant believe someone can be as uneducated as you. The facts are all there

    • caden

      how the hell are they scammers?

    • Demrocks

      Sorry to disapoint you there buddy but i bought my copy of Zelda in the store and use CEMU to get 4k and perhaps soon 60 fps instead of that shitty 720p 30 fps graphics.

      Not all PC gamers pirate most of us do buy our emulated roms fromt he studio’s.

      So whats Nintendo going to do then ?

      Nothing as i bought my game legit now go cry in a corner kiddo.

      • BFeely

        Considering the abusive nature of your comment, how do I even know you are telling the truth?
        And how do we know this emulator doesn’t have stolen Nintendo SDK code in it? There is absolutely no transparency in the development of this program.

        • Actually…

          There are sales numbers to possibly back this up. 925,000 copies of Breath of the Wild were sold for the Nintendo Switch, even though only 906,000 SKUs were sold in the U.S.

          That’s nearly 20,000 extra copies of the game moved even though people did not have a Switch. Some of those were from people who bought an extra copy as part of the collector’s edition and some ended up with extra copies from Switch bundles where the game shipped but the hardware unit didn’t.

          Is it not so hard to believe that a couple thousand of those copies of Breath of the Wild were also people who DID NOT buy a Switch but did buy the game in order to play it on the Cemu?

          • BFeely

            Those copies are not Wii U copies though.
            I suspect there may also have been warranty returns, as the Switch version uses a different type of cartridge that due to defects in the Switch console have trouble being recognized by the system.
            Owning a Switch cartridge of the game does not provide any rights to play the Wii U version.

  • Disqusted

    That was fast.

  • nice.
