CEMU Update 1.17.2 Release Notes
# Cemu detailed changelog for 1.17.2
# Patreon release date: 2020-02-14
# Public release date: 2020-02-21
- general: Fixed an issue where the game list would display updates/dlc instead of the base game, if no base game was found
- general: Removed redundant global options for cpu and vertex cache in the menu bar
- general: Removed precompiled shaders option from game profiles since there isn't really a reason to configure it per-game
- general: Added a new debug option to the general settings to enable the creation of crash dumps
- coreinit: Overhauled MP task queue API. The previous implementation required a game-specific workaround for Toyko Mirage Sessions which is now no longer necessary
- coreinit: Fixed several race conditions which could lead to deadlocks in multi-core recompiler mode
- coreinit: The default PowerPC thread for core 1 is now also the thread that begins execution in the game's main() method. Some games rely on this behavior.
This change fixes crashes in Paper Mario Color Splash
- Vulkan: Fixed a rare crash that could occur in any game due to a hash collision in the pipeline runtime cache
- Vulkan: Fixed custom shaders not being applied for V5 graphic packs (#270)
- Vulkan: Several minor tweaks to increase stability
- nn_boss: Fixed a crash that could occur when the game requested to run an invalid task
