Paper Mario: Color Splash is the sequel to Paper Mario: Sticker Star for the Nintendo 3DS, and while it definitely shows, it is widely considered to be far superior than its lackluster predecessor.

Known Issues

Crash after intro video

  • Crash at the end of the intro video. To avoid this, go into {GameFolder}\content\movie and delete or rename the video there.

As of Cemu 1.15.4, this issue is fixed.

Visual glitches

  • Characters do not draw properly when facing stage right. Colorless spots cannot be displayed properly.

As of Cemu 1.12.2, this issue is fixed.

Sound bugs

  • BGM commonly renders a scratching noise throughout the entire game.

As of Cemu 1.11.5 the audio is working correctly!

After playing for a while, this issue will sometimes re-appear after a battle.

Green fog on character renderings

  • Sometimes there is green fog on character renderings, set accurateShaderMul = min on the game profile can make a workaround.

Walking slowly

In the level "Sunset express", you need to walk slowly to hit a maskass. You can't do that with the keyboard, as levels of pressure are not managed ; you need a controller with an analogic stick to do that.

Configuration

Runs with default settings, but tweaking is recommended. 30 FPS lock is needed to pass some passages of the game.

1.7.1 Windows 10 USA Intel Core i5-4690K NVIDIA GTX 1070 Sayuri 30 Runs Game is playable, albeit with mild to heavy visual glitches, until the first fight with the three Shy Guys, which is impossible to get through because the battle system uses the Wii U Gamepad's touchscreen, and Cemu does not yet have a Gamepad display.

Press tab to view the gamepad screen, and click on the screen to use the touch screen. You can also enable off TV mode and press CTRL+Tab to permanently switch to the gamepad so that you don't have to keep switching.
1.7.1 Windows 10 USA Intel Pentium processor J2900 Intel(R) HD Graphics ItsGameBoy 2.37-5.94 Runs The game is somewhat playable, although there are some visual glitches, such as Paper Mario and the toads appear to be silhouettes, Princess Peach appears to be yellow and surrounded by a black border, and Huey appears to be invisible in paper form. The hammer Paper Mario uses and the shy guys are also silhouettes. Every time the game loads an object, it freezes until it successfully loads it. The biggest downside is that when encountering a battle, the battle appears black, which would be harder to attack.

1.12.2d Windows 10 EU Intel Core i7 4720 HQ @ 2.6 GHz Nvidia GeForce GTX 950M Jasmijn_F 30 (60) Runs A lot of issues were fixed by using the 30 FPS lock (s.a. battle cards not falling to the ground, Draggadon moving too fast etc.), although it crashed at the battle with Lemmy at the circus. Disabling the 30 fps lock fixed that problem. The game rarely froze and crashed, has rarely graphical glitches (usually in the battle and cutout cutscenes) and audio stuttering.

1.13.2c Windows 7 USA Intel Core i5 7600 Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 Furoryan 30 Runs I don't have the problem with using the megaphone thing. Random crashs happens rarely (level "Sunset Express", in a battle). Crashes while Mario fighting Larry in the train at the end of this level (after the first wave of sbires). BGM scratching noise issue very rarely occurs after a battle. Crash when Lemmy summoning a piranha plant at the circus.

1.14.0c Windows 10 USA Intel Core i7 6700k @ 4.0 GHz Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 trianta2 30 Runs The game crashes in Indigo Underground as documented in https://www.reddit.com/r/cemu/comments/9vjx6w/weekly_troubleshooting_thread_november_09_2018/e9czc3t/ but Cemu 1.13.2d does not have this issue.
1.15
Version OS Version Region CPU GPU Tester FPS Status Additional Notes
1.15.0e-1.15.1e Windows 7 USA Intel Core i5 7600 Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 Furoryan 30 Runs Infinite loading when trying to enter the second scene in the level "Marmalade Valley". Problem has appear from cemu 1.14. Last good version to pass that point is 1.13.2c. Using 30 FPS lock is needed to pass the next room (the eathquake scene), otherwise Mario will be stuck on the ground. Crashes while Mario fighting Larry in the train.
1.15.2d Windows 7 USA Intel Core i5 7600 Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 Furoryan 30 Runs Random crash while fighting Larry in the train (happening most of the times). Infinite loading when trying to enter the second scene in the level "Marmalade Valley", even after the level has been accomplished (you can pass this scene with cemu 1.13.2 with 30 FPS lock). Crash when Lemmy is summoning a piranha plant at the circus (happening 100% of the times). Note : it is possible to beat Lemmy with a workaround : you will have to down him to 50% on the first wave, so he will never summons a piranha plant. On the first turn use a maxi double jump, kill the first hammer bro, and hit the second, but let him alive. On the second turn, use 4x maxi double jump. The first maxi jump will kill the 2nd hammer bro, the 7 remaining maxi jumps are enough to lower Lemmy to 50% hp. The second phase does not crash.
1.15.2d Windows 10 EUR Intel Core i7-8750H Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 kai2018new 30/60 Playable Used two different versions and 30fps lock to play through the game. I've used the 1.13.2d and 1.15.2d. To avoid crashing while being in the Indigo Underground using the 1.13.2d CEMU version. To avoid crashing while fighting against Larry on the Sunset Express use the 1.15.2d OR NEWER version WITHOUT the 30fps lock! To avoid crashing while fighting against Lemmy I used the 1.13.2d version also WITHOUT the 30fps lock! BGM scratching noise issue sometimes reappears... To reduce the probability of the sound issue's reappearing use the 30fps lock. Furthermore I've noticed the reappearing of the sound issue can be simply reproduced by putting in a false card after cutting out a piece of landscape... Maybe this knowledge can be help to completely fix the issue(s)... After all I have to say that the game is fully playable if you know what you have to do to avoid crashes... So maybe the emulation state should be changed from 'Runs' to 'Playable´'
1.15.7-1.15.17c Windows 7 USA Intel Core i5 7600 Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 Furoryan 30 Runs Loading second scene in level "Mamelade Valley" has been fixed. However, the game is still crashing when Lemmy is summoning a Piranha plant (see my workaround above).
