Bayonetta is a third-person action game developed by PlatinumGames and published first by Sega for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and later Nintendo for Wii U. The Wii U version was released alongside its sequel, Bayonetta 2, in September 2014 in Japan and October 2014 in North America and Europe.

Known Issues

Entering the Save/Load Game interface crashes Cemu

  • Autosave functionality is unaffected by this error. Game progress can be resumed after exiting the game by selecting Continue from the Main menu.

Lighting is excessively bright

Cutscene audio and video is not synchronized

  • Setting SpeedHack to 0.5 with the external program Cheat Engine can synchronize cutscene playback.

Accessing the Gallery in the Extra menu loads to a black screen

  • The gallery can be previewed when it is first unlocked. Some selections in the gallery do not display correctly. Attempting to re-access the gallery after the first preview prompts this issue.

Loading Issues

  • As of CEMU V1.11 the game will hang and slowly leak memory while loading. Tester let it run for an hour and it used 6 GB of RAM with no changes.


To reduce the bloom lighting effect, first create a Graphics Pack for Bayonetta. Follow this tutorial. You will need to supply your rules.txt file with the titleId for your game version. The following example can be used for all 3 game region titleIds:

titleIds = 5000010157f00, 5000010157e00, 500001014db00

Next create a new text file named c9b60c9de9de5e03_0000000000000079_ps_source.txt. Copy the following into the file:

#version 400
#extension GL_ARB_texture_gather : enable

const float bloomFactor = 0.99; // bloom strength

Place this file in the new graphic pack folder along with the rules.txt file, and run Cemu. In the Cemu interface, go to Options -> Graphic Packs and enable the graphic pack you created. If successful, the excessively bright lighting now should be dimmed to an appropriate level.
