Dolphin (Wii/GC Emulator) in 3D • Page 5
Pageof 6 First / Last
Or has a shit PC?
Just fired up Twilight Princess (GC) in r6929 on my office machine (3.0Ghz C2D) and it runs full speed 0_o
Can any of you test the latest builds to see if there's any improvement?
Right, tested this on the Hack at home, everything is much faster, no idea what's changed so much.
Anyone managed to get Mazza Kart Wii running at a decent speed?
Dolphin 3.0 has been released.
Don't suppose anyone has the Wii Nand and LLE dump to hand do they?
Have you played with the settings or just going from stock? There won't be a machine on earth capable of emulating a GC/Wii properly for probably a decade without hacks.
We've only recently got proper timing for SNES emulation for example.
EDIT: My Wind Waker is pretty much spot on.
Oooh. Downloaded this this today as I fancy some of my RE: Remake but the TV is always taken!
Had to get a rom for it to work but man it looks pretty sweet! Got RE:0 as well but not tried it yet.
I couldn't find one but is there any way at to convert you own disc rather than download 'em. If I already own the games so it's no big deal but if I could do it myself with my own it copy would be better, we got a few here I could do.
You can with a wii

Not ideal but might look at nabbing a cheap wii, I'd would much prefer doing my on ISOs off my own discs and when I build a new PC I can run Wii games to (doubt my current humble machine now would run 'em). Need an excuse to get DKCR anyway.

Started Zelda last night and playing on a projector at 106 inches it just looked really bad. Not played on the Wii for a long time, and coming over from Battlefield 3 running on the PC at 1080p with high settings certainly didn't help! I know its only component and at 480p, but I was surprised how poor it looked. I am going to fiddle with the scaling options on the amp and projector tonight to see if that helps, but then I remembered reading up on Dolphin a while ago and seeing HD screenshots.
Tried this on my work laptop today and was surprised at how well it runs. Even on a laptop (mobile i5) it runs at a choppy 15-20fps so I am hoping my gaming PC (i5 overclocked to 4GHz) will do better. Visually though its a world apart. Upping the internal resolution makes the game super smooth and yet with amazing detail.
I want to play it on the correct hardware, but at the moment it just looks awful. Its as if there are horrendous scan lines everywhere and so much blurring you cant make anything out clearly that's more than a few meters in front of you.
Some pretty incredible screenshots of it here: http://forums.dolphin-emulator.com/showthread.php?tid=19897

Shame the plugin isn't out for n64 emulators, I'd love to try Sin & Punishment or F-Zero in 3D.
From looking at the emu, its the hardware (Wii) that's the limitation, not the display.
The problem is not that its pixelated, I would expect that. In fact, pixelated but crisp would be a big preference. Its just, well, unpleasant. Ill take a picture tonight to show what I meen, and try and get Dolphin running it too for a comparison.
I could play on the 32" TV, but then its not quite the same!
Found another video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8pArPerSxk Its the first 15 minutes so spoiler if you haven't started the game.
Watched it and honestly, you're probably not going to believe me, but it isn't that big a jump from what I'm playing with the normal set-up.
The main difference I can see is that it is cleaner and and has less jaggies.
But the amount of jaggies I see is also dependent on how far away I am from the TV.
However, if you want to play on a humungous screen, then I completely understand you would want to dolphin it.
Edit: Also, it makes a big difference what TV you use. I'm playing it on an a relatively old Panasonic Plasma that handles SD very well. With component lead set to 480i.

Of course I do believe you, they're your eyes not mine. The combination of screen size and relative position has a massive difference too.
But watching that video fullscreen and switching between 1080p and 480p partly highlights what I am seeing. I know YouTube is compressing the video, but I actually think the 480p playback of that footage is better than what I am seeing in my setup, and the 1080p is just miles ahead.
Ill see how low a res I can get my PC and see the projectors upscale, but I don't remember other Wii games looking this bad before.
I'm getting a bit off topic now, but if I can get Dolphin working well ill let you know.

There was no chance that it would look good on something that big.
On a 37 inch screen and with some screen adjustments it looks great
Dolphin I love you. Runs at solid 30fps with detail ramped all the way up. I have one tiny graphical glitch when viewing the map, but other than that its perfect.
Made a little video last night to compare the Wii and Dolphin, just of the menu so no spoilers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jCBU7JKFmk&feature=youtu.be
