    Otome games for Nintendo Switch using emulator?

    Hello, I don't know if this has been asked before, I tried searching but didn't find anything so...
    I am wondering if Otome games for the Switch platform has been tested in the Yuzu (Nintendo Switch emulator for PC) yet, or if anyone has any info on that.
    Since Aksys Games announced many new localizations and even some old otoges are getting a port, all for the Switch, I got curious if they would work with the emulator.
    I have no knowledge on how it works, so if anyone have any ideas, I would appreciate it ^^

    Re: Otome games for Nintendo Switch using emulator?

    Hello, I'm played around and tested some nsp files on hand to see if they worked. (Feeling the animal crossing lack of switch FOMO)

    TdLR: couldn't run any past the menu, black screens (sounds BGM somewhat ok) on Yuzu. Had more luck with Ryujinx for some games.


    Kitty Love and the School of Wizardry worked on Ryujinx (another switch emu) for me, alas they're sometimes a bit laggy and not in English/ couldn't find updates for it.
    Tested the Voltage ones (starcrossed punishment & wishes, and Enchanted in moonlight) none of them could boot up past a dark screen (on both platforms). Yuzu played the BGM to a black screen "menu" (clicking around) and Ryujinx crashed everytime thus far.

    Was running both on the latest firmware (9.2 I think).



    Hope that helped a little bit! Maybe some other JPN otome games could run or there's emu updates in the future that could work!

    Also pretty new to this, so not sure if I was missing something ^^'

    Re: Otome games for Nintendo Switch using emulator?

    I hope this helps. The "inclem3ntia" has done a good job.
    Otome games have a narrow global demand, so it's unlikely that the emulator will do the optimization. (If I have time to optimize an otome game, I'll optimize a console AAA title in that time)
    Verification for each title often has to be done on its own. Therefore, the actual validation results are valuable shared data.
    Fortunately, many otome games are not games that run on complex programs, so they are relatively easy to run on emulators as long as they are not hampered by publishers. There is no guarantee that it will work properly, though.

    Yuzu latest download. https://yuzu-emu.org/downloads/ Ryujinx latest download. https://ryujinx.org/download/

    Re: Otome games for Nintendo Switch using emulator?

    I played Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ and Code: Realize ~Future Blessings~ on Yuzu and they work Perfect in the yuzu 295 (just the op and endings videos don't work)

    Ayakashi Koi Gikyoku -Forbidden Romance with Mysterious Spirit-, Iris School of Wizardry -Vinculum Hearts-. Kitty Love -Way to look for love- and other OperaHouse games works perfect in the latest releases with the option "Multicore CPU Emulation" enabled and "Graphics" > "Advanced" Accuracy level = Extreme (very slow)

    The versions are different, in the latest release Code: Realize drops fps, 30 fps in general and 2 fps in menu....

    Good report. The actual report on how it works is informative.

    Exclamation Re: Otome games for Nintendo Switch using emulator?

    Reposting:
    Oh-oh yes, I am sorry... (There are some tutorials on YouTube, and I am not very good writing in english, but I will try to help) Ask if it don't work.
    ***This Guide Can contain writing errors.
    Guide Update Date: 01/23/2022| 2022/01/23 | 23/01/2022

    How to play on Yuzu:
    ***!Attention!***: Read Everything!
    *Your system need to be x64. See if your computer have the right requirements: https://yuzu-emu.org/help/quickstart/#hardware
    *Yuzu also requires the latest versions of Microsoft Visual C++. https://aka.ms/vs/16/release/vc_redist.x64.exe
    *Not all games may install or work. Yuzu support: "We have issues with several visual novels for now."
    *Docked Mode makes the game look a bit nice but you can't make choices with the mouse.
    *Skipping drops fps.
    *I have only played English Otome games and tested some JPN.
    *Game Compatibility List: https://yuzu-emu.org/game/


    1. You need to download the emulator
    Latest releases: https://yuzu-emu.org/downloads/ (non installer: Manual Download > Windows icon in latest mainline build)

    2. You need nintendo switch keys (prod.keys), here for you: https://mega.nz/folder/K1tkVCiZ#_Rkf01QJBK8y97Rv-azm4A

    3. Open Yuzu, upper left "File"> "open yuzu folder", place the prod.keys on yuzu keys folder.
    The keys need to be in this path: C:\Users\(YOU)\AppData\Roaming\yuzu\keys


    4. Close everything, open Yuzu again, now you need the game, it need to be .xci or .nsp (can't be .ns/nc/xcz), you can download it here or other sites.
    The difference is that the .xci is from cartridges and already have the updates within (sometimes even switch firmware = bigger), .nsp is eshop (digital download) and you need to install the updates separated.

    5. You can play by simple add the games folder (if the games are not separated by folders) select the game to play (No need to install the game but need to install Update and DLCs)
    To install a game, update and DLC: upper left "File>install File to NAND..." and select the .xci or .nsp files. You can select more than one file to install.
    To add a Save to a game: right click in the game “Open Save Data Location”> select the User (Place the saves) and close folder.
    To add a Mod: right click in the game “Open Mod Data Location” (Place the Mods) and close.
    To add a Shader Cache: "Open Transferable Shader Cache" (place the shaders .bin)
    To Remove an update, DLC, mod, Shader Cache, configuration or Game: right click in the game "Remove"> (Select what do you want to remove.)

    6. The Yuzu Settings: upper left "Emulation>Configure"
    My currently settings:
    General: General
    Framerate Cap: 1000x
    Limit speed percent: 100%
    Multicore CPU Emulation.

    CPU
    Accuracy: Auto

    Graphics: Graphics
    API: OpenGL (Vulkan if you have AMD)
    shader Backend: GLASM (Assembly shaders, NVIDIA only)
    use disk pipeline cache
    use asynchronous GPU Emulation
    Accelerate ASTC texture decoding.
    NVDEC Emulation: GPU Video Decoding
    Window Adapting Filter: ScaleForce

    Graphics: Advanced:
    Accuracy level: normal (change if needed)
    Use VSync (OpenGL only)
    Use asynchronous shader building (hack)
    Use fast GPU time (hack)
    Anisotropic Filtering: Automatic

    Audio: Audio
    Output engine: auto
    Audio device: Auto
    Volume: 100% (change if you want)

    Controls: player 1
    Map them. You can also Play with Mouse:
    Controls: Advanced
    Emulation Devices: ✔ Touchscreen.

    To configure a single game different from the global settings: right-click on the game "properties" and configure.

    7. To have a better perfomance you need to do 3 things:
    A) If you are using a notebook, open Battery Settings and set it to Maximum Performance.

    B) NVIDIA CONTROL PANEL:
    Manage 3D Settings> Program Settings
    Select/Add the Emulator (do this for both Ryujinx and Yuzu)
    Preferred Graphics Driver: Select High-performance NVIDIA processor.
    OpenGL rendering GPU: Select your Nvidia GPU
    Power Management Mode: Prefer Maximum Perfomance
    Threaded Optimization: ON
    Triple Buffering: ON
    Vertical Sync: OFF
    Apply!

    C) Windows Users: Control Panel > System and Security > Advanced system settings >
    (W10: Settings > System > About > Advanced system settings)>

    Re: Otome games for Nintendo Switch using emulator?

    Thank you all for the extremely detailed instructions! I was just wondering, has anyone shared the .nsp files for Code: Realise? I would love to finally play it with the emulator, but I couldn't find it anywhere. :<
