Ocarina Of Time and Mario Kart 64 launched with major issues on Switch
Subscribers have reported performance and quality issues with several games in the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack, especially with The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Mario Kart 64.
One of the biggest problems is Mario Kart 64, as it does not allow players to save ghost data on the Nintendo Switch. This is because it can’t detect an N64 Controller Pak, which means fans can’t save their own recordings to compete against in Ghost Trials.
An error message reads “No N64 Controller Pak detected to save ghost data. Insert the N64 Controller Pak into the controller”, while another warning that appears in the top right of the screen during runs adds “the race data cannot be saved for phantoms”.
The Nintendo Switch emulation of Ocarina of time is also suffering from a lot of issues, as players have reported technical issues with the title.
Several players have identified input lag issues, alleging that Ocarina of time has a significant delay between receiving commands from the controller and executing them.
As noted on the Nintendo Switch subreddit, there are also issues with Ocarina of time does not properly render fog or reflective elements, resulting in lower quality.
