DOLPHIN Emulator: Complete Setup Guide! (Wii & GameCube)

433

Here is my complete guide on how to install, setup and run DOLPHIN EMULATOR (Wii, GameCube, Homebrew and Channel Manager Emulator).

It is VERY detailed and shows you not just how to get YOUR games working, but also configure it to run stable on the best possible settings. I take you all the way to 4k resolution running your games as smooooooth as butter!

I do not apologize for the length of this guide or for the information I give. If you just want to play a couple of your fave games then you may be better using a simple 5 min setup video. However this is made to play and configure ALL games to the maximum setting possible for YOUR PC.

Look forward in the future. I will be covering another tutorial on this Emulator. I want o go into detail with per game configs, Setup of DolphinBar and WiiMotes, controller settings and how to play this on a LOW END PC. I would have included it on this vid… But I thought an hour was enough for now hehehehe!

*****Thank you for supporting me guys and gals. If you would like anything covered, have any questions about this vid or others let me know. I can only cover front ends, emulators or tech I know about so if you have something you think others may be interested in give me a shout. Will help and will try anything that other people may enjoy!****

WARNING!:
This video in regards to Emulation is made to encourage you to play your BACKUPS. In other words, THE GAMES WHICH YOU ALREADY OWN!. Please do not emulate any games which you do not already have on any systems which you do not own. Unless of course they are abandon/free-ware due to license or age.

Emulation for me is not about playing games I do not own. It is about playing games on another platform. In fact on my PC at 4k internal resolution 60fps with one controller… not having 200+ consoles set up with 600+ controllers tangled up!

ESPECIALLY, do not sell anything to do with this scene or be stupid enough to buy anything from this scene. Support Developers (especially SEGA) and pay for what you play!

  1. I dont wanna run the games at 4k or that exaggerations, I just wanna play at native (480p) gamecube games, my specs are: Lenovo G50-80 cpu: Intel i3 4500u gpu: Intel HD graphics 4400 (integrated) 64mb (up to 1gb shared memory) 4gb ram Windows 8.1

    • +You Dont Know Me getting an i7 is by far tje worst suggestion ever. You don’t need hyperthreading for emulation. Hell you dont need hyperthread for anything but rendering. A i5 is enough.

    • If we are talking about recommendations here, then i can tell you from my personal experience that even a i3 2100 or 2120 is more than enough for Dolphin and PCSX2. I’ve thrown my entire collection, and they work flawlessly at 720p.

      Anything with a STR of 1500 (PassMark.com) should handle mostly everything, especially Gamecube games. Hell, the guy is poor so the cheapest solution should be recommended.

  2. Hey man! Nice work! But I have one question, I have a 4GB RAM and it’s at 60-60 so 100% in some parts of some games but it doesn’t last long and goes back to 30’s and 20’s which is non-existent to play this games. Does the memory in my computer matter? I have like 10 GB remaining.

  3. Or Austin if you have know how with soldering and reading schematics you can make your own Bluetooth dongle using the official Bluetooth card/device that the Wii uses because as of Dolphin 5.0 supports Bluetooth pass-through which allows the Wii-motes to work in the same manner as the Dolphin Bar. Plus there is some kind of weird issue with the Dolphin bar and Wii-Remote speaker that the Bluetooth Passthrough fixes. If you just search Dolphin bluetooth pass through and you will find some info about this.

  4. mine doesnt work, my files say GBA instead of ISO, also i cannot slect the files when i try to from dolphin.. any help please?

  5. There is a problem i cannot complete the file swap level in sm galaxy with these controls it is too hard mario shakes simply if i move him a little fast and thus it has become a frustrating for me please help anyone

  6. Hey Austin could you try something out please. Could you try scarface (Wii) and see if you can enable the balls/rage mode?

    I’m currently using dolphin on android (scarface runs at a smooth 30-40fps)

    I’ve tried mapping the triggers as the shake xyz…. Which works as Tony taunts… But it’s not entering his balls/rage mode.

    I’m so confused 🙁

  7. this is boring, u should have made categories. I have to stay sit and watch how noobs can configure the easy stuff until i get what i want…
