    Yes, but you may need a tool that translate the gamepad data to the DSU format that the emulators use. On the Steamdeck i use SteamDeckGyroDSU for that and works like a charm.

    Cemu is generally said to perform much better than Yuzu and Ryujinx, so Cemu is the preferred option for e.g. Zelda BOTW, where the game contents are the same between versions.

    Also I think there's a Xenoblade game that never got a Switch port
    Xenoblade Chronicles X. No Switch port exists.Beautiful game, too.

    This is the most efficient emulator I've ever seen in my life. And it's not any big project of many people, most of the work was done by 1 brilliant person.

Yuzu has been open source and on Linux for a long time. Maybe if CEMU was open source and ported to Linux 5 years ago then it would have been amazing, since 5 years ago Yuzu wasn't exactly as performant and compatible like CEMU is. But today, there's really no need to use CEMU unless you only have access to Wii U roms and you didn't get a modded Nintendo Switch.

    Wii U had great games, good that they get to live on without having to pull out all the hardware it required

    Further raises suspicions that they stole open-source code in the original closed-source codebase...

    Let's just hope they don't pull a Bazz (pay for latest version without source!) or a ProtonMail (development happens behind the curtain)...

    cant say I really care all that much myself, ryujnix will pretty much play any of the games I am actually interested in

    Ok, that's great. Checking the web of the one mentioned here, I'm fine running the Zelda: Breath of the Wild in Cemu. Looks the same (I saw it on a real Switch), doesn't need access to an older version of Switch to download system files from and runs fine on my old PC (even my fast server in my attic is just the minimum requirements for that Switch emulator).

    Steam remote play works fine with Cemu, including gamepad commands. I use an old cheap USB gamepad and stream the game from a powerful loud server hidden in the attic. I used it for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Good that game is not limited to Switch only, which is not yet emulated.

    I know its possible. I'm just saying: Yuzu has perfect controller Support including Gyro out of the box. Cemu+Wine is much more difficult to use. It works perfectly if configured and used correctly, but Yuzu >> Cemu+wine from a usability POV.
