Players report Nintendo Switch Online N64 games suffering from input lag, frame rate issues

Some players who have upgraded their Nintendo Switch Online subscription to access the new expansion pack are angry with the performance of the service’s Nintendo 64 games. Fans are reporting input delay, sound delay, frame rate issues, and improper controller layout issues.

Many issues are summarized ResetEra thread, We are collecting more submissions from players who are dissatisfied with the service. General complaints focus on input lag. User paftree said, “OoT’s input lag is very bad.” User nogoodnamesleft repeated this, saying “quite noticeable input and audio delays on all n64’s so far.”

Famous Zelda: Time Speed ​​Runner ZFG’s Ocarina posted her thoughts on Twitter, stating that this version is “worse” than the version on the Wii U virtual console.

In addition to input delay, the player has reported sound effect delays, music playback issues, and strange button layout issues that reverse the placement of the A and B buttons, and there is no option to remap.

“Given the aggressive price tags of the Expansion Pass, it’s understandable why people are so procrastinating on the myriad of problems we see here,” said thread author Hustle Bun.

On Twitter, users @OatmealDome The emulator used for Nintendo Switch Online N64 games is the same as the emulator used for Super Mario 64 in Super Mario 3D All Stars, with certain elements removed that were designed specifically for Super Mario 64. It is reported that there is. Super Mario 3D All-Star reviews are generally praised, or at least considered sufficient. Nevertheless, expansion pack games seem to have emulation issues.

The new Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack has been available since yesterday and costs $ 49.99 annually. We hope Nintendo can address the issues reported by players. Despite performance issues, Nintendo recently announced that all N64 games on the service can be played at 60Hz even in the PAL region.
