Tick-tock, it's Cemu update o'clock! The popular Wii U emulator has now reached version 1.15.17c, and this time the changelog is going to be a bit more exciting than the last
. In fact, alongside your usual dose of bugfixes and smaller improvements, there's also a couple of additions you may be interested in: better Amiibo handling and built-in Gamecube controller support! Regarding the former, the emulator can now both read and write Amiibo nickname/associated Mii and game-specific data, also, the Amiibo settings app is now working correctly, as some required yet previously missing API calls have been added. The latter, on the other hand, is self-explanatory - but keep in mind you will have to set your Gamecube controllers to run in Wii U mode (official Nintendo USB adapters are set to use it by default, while third-party devices usually have a switch to set their operating mode) and you will also need to install/replace its drivers with Zadig
before using it.
With that said, here's the full, official changelog for the curious:

Cemu 1.15.17c can be downloaded by going to its official website (linked below) or, if you are already running version 1.15.10 or later, by using its included auto-updater. The Vulkan renderer is still only available on the Patreon-exclusive v1.16.0 WIP builds for the time being.
Users running the previously released v1.15.17b on PCs with Intel graphics chips are recommended to upgrade, as this version rolled back a fix for transport feedback on said GPUs that didn't end up working correctly.
