    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.

    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: 12/05/2020| 2020/12/05 | 05/12/2020

    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. Like Voltage Inc. games.
    *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.
    *Yuzu latest version may close and crash, like when stopping emulation (I recommend to close Yuzu after stopping to play a game).
    *Skipping drops fps.
    *I have only played English Otome games and tested some JPN.


    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/file/a0FwUAYD#kO5ZB5...YM3FJshw15ewM4

    3. Open Yuzu, upper left "File"> "open yuzu folder", extract the keys.rar on yuzu 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 (sometimes even switch firmware) within, .nsp is eshop and you need to install the update 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 or/and DLC)
    To install a game, update or DLC: upper left "File>install File to NAND..." and select the .xci or .nsp file. (In the latest release 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 (and everything): right click in the game "Remove"> (Select what do you want to remove.)

    6. The Yuzu Settings: upper left "Emulation>Configure"
    Play with this settings:
    General: General
    Limit speed percent: 100%
    Enable Multicore CPU Emulation.

    Graphics: Graphics
    API: OpenGL (better than Vulkan)
    enable user disk shader cache
    enable use asynchronous GPU Emulation
    enable NVDEC emulation
    Graphics: Advanced:
    Accuracy level: normal (change if needed)
    enable Use VSync (OpenGL only)
    enable assembly shaders (experimental, Nvidia OpenGL Only)
    disable Use asynchronous shader building (experimental)
    enable Use fast GPU time
    Anisotropic Filtering: Default

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

    Controls: player 1
    Map them. You can use mouse to play

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

    7. OperaHouse games (Those: Ayakashi Koi Gikyoku -Forbidden Romance with Mysterious Spirit-, Iris School of Wizardry -Vinculum Hearts-. Kitty Love -Way to look for love-, Spiral Memoria -The Summer I Meet Myself-)
    They need to be played with this setting: upper left "Emulation>Configure"
    "Graphics>Advanced" Accuracy level: Extreme (very slow) (if you don't change this the background stays black)

    9. You may give feedback about how otome games are working on Yuzu, or about the guide. thanks!

    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. :<

    edit: sorry if this comment isn't appropriate for this thread, I will delete it immediately if that's the case
