Zelda Breath of the Wild can hit 60 FPS
Zelda Breath of the Wild is a fantastic game for many reasons, but high frame rates are not among them. The title was received with warmth by the gaming community, all thanks to its fun gameplay, eye-catching graphics, and storyline. Now, thanks to a modder named Xalphenos, the game can finally be played at silky smooth frame rates through the Zelda Breath Of The Wild Dynamic Speed patch. Not too long ago, testers shared various videos showing the Wii U and Nintendo Switch versions of the title running silky smooth, and the great news is that the patch is available for all gamers at the time of writing.
What about bugs?
Xalphenos had a few words to say about this impressive project:
“Firstly this only works on BotW version 1.3.0 and 1.3.1. All addresses need to be updated for different versions of the game. Which also means the next version of BotW will not work Until the corresponding offsets are found.
Stamina replenishes too quickly, as though it’s still going 1x speed at 30 instead of what FPS you are getting. Some of my testers have reported missing textures on occasion, however that is a problem I couldn’t duplicate. The textures not loading in were subsequently reported to be happening by two of my testers; albeit to a lesser extent, even without my patch, leading to a theory that it may be related to Cemu v1.9.1–as I have been on 1.9.0 the whole time due to it being a bit easier to debug with.
Sometimes animations get a little jumpy, it happens most often while paragliding. There is a random chance the game will slightly stall briefly but it recovers pretty quickly. Finally when you sleep you may randomly get a long wait before Link wakes back up again–it seems to be pretty rare, only happening to me once in the whole last week of testing. Based on tester reports if it does happen it usually won’t happen again during that play session.”
Clearly, some issues are to be expected, but the author will likely fix them soon enough. The CEMU Emulator and the patch itself can be downloaded right here. Do let us know how it works for you if you ever decide to try it out.
