The renowned Nintendo Wii U emulator, Cemu, has received an update. Version 1.13.0e is now available to the public, and can be downloaded from their official website. New features in this build of the emulator include letting users boot homebrew .elf files, along with improving how graphic and texture packs are handled by the emulator. Outside of that, multiple bugs have been fixed in regards to audio, Wiimote support, and softlocks. Version 1.14.0, the upcoming update, which is currently only distributed to a small few, makes more major changes, such as allowing for The Wonderful 101 to be playable, and getting more titles to reach an in-game state.
