Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is a 2014 side-scrolling platformer video game developed by Retro Studios, with assistance from Monster Games, and published by Nintendo. The fifth installment in the main Donkey Kong Country series, and the first in high-definition, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is the direct sequel to the 2010 Wii game, Donkey Kong Country Returns. It was released in Japan under the alternative title Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze.

Known Issues

Intro/Opening Cutscene

The intro/opening video when starting a new save does not play properly. (video playback is not supported in Cemu) Can be bypassed by using a save file or simply waiting until the video is over. (you can also replace the intro.mp4 video with a short one)

This what the intro video should look like

Wii U Pro controller Input/Multiplayer

Wii U Pro controller/Player 2 input is currently not detected.

Vendor-Specific Issues

Various bugs specific to Nvidia GPUs, including glitched pick-ups (ie~ bananas/coins) and improperly rendered textures with specific characters/objects.

Configuration

This game requires "GPU buffer cache accuracy" set to "High(Slow)" to run properly.

1.5.0 Windows 7 USA AMD FX 8320 @ 4.4GHz AMD Radeon R9 390 Darkemaste 15-60 Runs 20fps in title screen/overworld and 50-60fps in menus/cutscenes, 15fps in-game. Previously mentioned moving green/red static screen can be bypassed using a save file.

Can get in game and is consistent 15 fps with full audio until you try to progress to another area where it freezes with music still playing. (Cemu does not crash) No character texture/audio issues to speak of, appears to be AMD GPU- specific.

1.5.1 Windows 7 USA AMD FX 8320 @ 4.4GHz AMD Radeon R9 390 Darkemaste 20-60 Runs 50-60fps in title screen, 50-60fps in menus/cutscenes, 20fps in overworld/in-game. No other major changes from 1.5.0

No character texture/audio issues so far, appears to be AMD GPU- specific.

It appears enabling ""overwrite vertex buffer size"" significantly lowers performance in this title, (possibly AMD-specific?) previously had it enabled in past submissions. Wii U Pro controller input settings still not detected. (no multiplayer)

Wii U Pro controller input settings still not detected. (no multiplayer) Nearly perfect otherwise, appears to be AMD GPU- specific.

1.6.2 Windows 7 USA AMD FX 8320 @ 4.4GHz AMD Radeon R9 390 Darkemaste 60 Playable Consistent 60fps in-game, 2nd player input still not detected. Nearly perfect, appears to be AMD GPU- specific.

This sometimes drags the fps down to 15, making it hard to complete the level. (at least if you die constantly at the same spot as I do)

1.7.2 Windows 7 USA AMD FX 8320 @ 4.4GHz AMD Radeon R9 390 Darkemaste 60 Playable Greatly improved performance in slowdown stages/areas, though still somewhat present in certain specific spots. Other than that no major changes from 1.7.1.
