I agree it would be nice to have in Citra, but I'm also sure there are third party programs that could allow you this right now while waiting for it to get implemented in Citra. Let me check - yes, for example Autohotkey does it:
It supports controllers and it supports the action "click on specific point of the screen". It's also free to use.
As cool as the feature is, I just use Autosync:
I can manually set up any and all emulators or other games to sync saves.
You can update the compatibility database at: https://github.com/citra-emu/citra-games-wiki/
If it's a simple dat file change, you can edit the "game.dat" file in the online github editor. If you need to do anything more significant, you'll want to download Git. If you have any further questions, feel free to hop on our Discord server and ask any questions you might have :)
melonDS is ds emulator that goes for accuracy. It's a pretty recent one, tho. Desmume and no$gba have been around for significantly more time. But i'd advise you to keep in touch with melonDS development.
I don't think you can do this as a VM. It's gotta be dual booted. You may lose a lot of performance that way.
But I do have another idea. Batocera Linux. It is a bootable USB drive emulation Linux operating system which I just looked and it has Citra cooked in. Take a look at the link. Let me just state I haven't tried this but it would be easier then dual booting your pc. https://batocera.org/compatibility
Use antimicro. Been using it to map my mice to my controller and it works pretty well.
Edit: heres the link: https://github.com/AntiMicro/antimicro
if that doesn't work you can use "joytokey" as an alternative: https://joytokey.net/en/
This is what I believe you're looking you can connect it over wifi
I would connect the controller to the PC directly
You can still use the phone touchscreen
The one thing I thing I don't really like about the app is that is that user friendly
The thing is I live on Brazil so I don't really know how the price range is in USD but If I had to say one i would say Poco X3 Pro it has snapdragon 860 5000mah of battery the only downside i have with it is the LCD screen (I'm a AMOLED fanboy 😅) but after the ban of xiaomi, in your country and the fact that this one doesn't have 5g i don't think you will like it that much if you're planning on use it as a main phone but for emulation? This phone will run pretty much any of the emulators you want to with extremely ease
I use the Ryochan7 fork of DS4Windows, but it seems to have been discontinued. (Last release was August 2021, so it's probably still good to use.) Make sure to enable the UDP Server option.
Also, it's not CemuHook itself that provides this support. The developer of CemuHook made a protocol that other applications are able to provide signals for (like DS4Windows-Ryochan7 or Steam Gyro DSU) or read signals from (like Citra or Dolphin). Unless you need it for Cemu, you don't need to download CemuHook.
You can use ds4(http://ds4windows.com/) to configure your controller on Windows and then properly map the buttons of the controller in Citra's menu.
If you don't know how to do any of this, I'm sure a Google search of "how to use ps4 controller in windows" and "how to map ps4 dualsense controller in citra" will give will a lot of YouTube videos and other tutorials.
I don't know if you're interested in using a third-party program to accomplish this, but I personally use Joy2Key. You can use an XInput controller (like an Xbox 360 or Xbox One controller) and make any button input correspond to any keyboard or mouse input. I have mine set to use the Right Stick at the mouse pointer with the Right Bumper button as Left Mouse Click. This works great for my needs.
Personal Joy2Key Settings for Citra Touchpad
Did you try it in both nightly and canary??? Im guessing that its happening because of the ipening cutscene has issues loading and thats why i suggested load9ng a save. Take this link as it has listed some codes that you can input in the cheats section to hopefully have it work
i don't know, but i downloaded the lastest version from this official website: http://citra-emu.org/
and the game i wanted to plays is Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Gates to Infinity
i saw people can play it by Citra (3DS emulator) but it didn't works for me
I think the standard go-to workaround response to this is to use joytokey.
You can map + and - buttons on to some extra buttons on your controller. Downside is unlike fast forward buttons on other emulators, you have to keep an eye on what you're currently at to get precisely back to 100% speed when you want to return to normal speed.
Personally, I just got used to playing Pokemon at 350% speed constantly, and Radiant Historia at 150% speed constantly. But plenty of people suggest using a macro program such as joytokey to add those shortcuts onto their controllers, and people even make macros to click the touchscreen for them when certain games call for it.
Here's another topic talking about it: https://www.reddit.com/r/Citra/comments/8i3dhs/how_can_i_control_pc_cursor_with_a_controller/
You can try Linux instead. AMD openGL drivers have 3x~ better performance in Linux
>Additional Option 2: The User can download Batocera Linux x86 https://batocera.org/. This is much like Retropie that is a USB bootable Linux emulation OS. This has Citra Linux cooked in and should have the AMD Linux drivers cooked in as well. The user can reboot to Batocera off of USB without having to learn how to dual boot.
I was just thinking that Batocera may work for Mac users as well. This might be a great all in one emulator for you guys as well.
No need to dual boot in boot camp. Just boot to USB. https://forum.batocera.org/d/3150-batocera-on-imac-macbook-pro.
For everyone who wants to recreate this:
1: To use my phone as the touchscreen I used this guide:
In the comments you can find people having problems with Citra's qt-config not saving the edits made to it, so see "hector2icarus" comment below and copy his settings (except for the screen size pixel values, calculate those with the guide's OP). For the pixel values I could just use the same values as the guide since I'm also using a 1920x1080 screen and 1024x768 phone window size.
2: To get the HP and rockets to show up on the main window (also works for other games that have important stuff on the second screen) you can simply install OnTopReplica:
Install it, open the program and in the window that appears right click and select Citra's double-screen game window in the "Select window" option. To crop it to the HP and rocket counter right click again and select "Select region" and drag a box around the HP and rockets. You can then resize and position the window to your liking, it will stay on top despite selecting Citra afterwards.
Use this. That's what I use to map keyboard keys/inputs to my xbox 360 gamepad for Citra. There are many others out there but this one is free at least. (I believe xpadder is no longer free)
Go to https://brew.sh/.. Follow the instruction there.
When this is done...
Open terminal and type
|brew install ffmpeg
It may give you an error. It will also give you a solution in terminal itself. do it.
Then Citra will run fine.... won't take more than 10 mins on good internet connection.
Normally, "Update your drivers" refers to all of them or, at the very least, the important ones like graphics, sound ect. When a new driver becomes available, you should be able to download it via Windows Update, but who wants to wait for Windows Update!?!
Problems with Citra almost always comes down to your graphics driver, so fire up your favourite browser and type in [Your Graphics Card's Model Number] and "latest driver" into Google. If you don't know your GPU's exact model number, a piece of software like CPUz should be able to help you!
Using a program like Voicemeeter solves the crackling. It runs the audio through its own engine which adds about a 15ms delay but i havent heard any crackling with it.
a PC can run PC games to a much higher level than it can emulate something like a 3DS. you didn’t mention your specs. i am playing Planet Robobot really nicely right now on Citra at 2x resolution on this laptop https://www.amazon.com/dp/B086KJBKDW
I think this is what I should buy from Amazon? Any opinions on this purchase?
What phone are you using?
Install this and check if it's 64 bits based or not. Only phones which have it can run citra.
Mine phone can't 😭
Is an app which lets you do it. And its easy. You can also decide which sound comes from BT speaker and your phone's speaker and you can play music like Spotify while also watching a YouTube video.
I achieved that i synced save files folder in google drive. And in android i use google drive and this app for syncing citra folder. It works. I use it to sync save files not ROMs.
Sorry I couldn’t find it on amazon.us but here’s an amazon.fr link. That’s the one I bought. Also it’s 1024x600 not 1200x800 and more like 70$
