ZLauncher and Cemuhook works differently. Just choose what you like:
Cemuhook is hooking some Cemu functions and replacing its functionality.
- It's integrated into Cemu.
- It works in another games, not BotW only.
- It's more seamless integration: subtitles are visible, timings are correct.
- It interferes with Cemu, something can break after updates.
- It's closed-source now.
ZLauncher is constantly reading Cemu log and shows cutscene in external borderless window.
- It doesn't touch Cemu in any way.
- It most likely continue to work after updates.
- Video is shown in separate overlay.
- Subtitles are hidden.
- Timings may be broken.
You can disable ZLauncher video playback by setting
[video].enabled parameter to
false. Then you can remove mpv.exe if you want.
