Emulation Information

Improper GameCube Font

Due to copyright concerns, Dolphin is unable to include official GameCube fonts, and instead uses Droid Sans. Unfortunately, Droid Sans does not align well with the size/kerning of the official GameCube font, which can cause text to be misplaced, dialogs to display improperly, and other issues due to differing text sizes.

This can be corrected by including a region appropriate GameCube IPL (i.e. BIOSROM) under <Dolphin User Folder>/GC/. A GameCube 'IPL.bin' can be acquired from a real GameCube using Swiss. Refer issue 8362. GameCube BIOS files need to be named 'IPL.bin' in order for Dolphin to detect them, and should be 2,097,152 bytes in size. IPL files are different for PAL consoles and NTSC consoles, but American NTSC consoles use the same IPL files as Japanese NTSC consoles. The known good CRC32 checksums below can be used to validate files, but it is possible that a bad dump with a different checksum also works.


Mario Kart Dolphin Rom


Star Wars Rogue Squadron III: Rebel Strike Demo

Enable Full MMU or an error occurs.

F-Zero GX Demo

Enable FPRF or Interpreter(Beware It's really slow) or camera glitch occurs.

Mario Party 5 Demo

Disable EFB Copies to Texture Only to prevent glitches, such as black/white boxes around sprites.

Incorrect GameINI settings

Dolphin uses a GameINI system to set necessary options for your game depending on its ID. Unfortunately, this system assumes that all GameIDs starting with the character P are Virtual Console TurboGrafx-16 titles, when certain promotional/bonus discs for GameCube can also have an ID starting with P, including the Double Dash bonus disc. Currently (as of 5.0-1444), this only sets Texture Cache Accuracy to Safe which is not a dangerous setting, however this may change in the future. See issue 9938. Fixed by 5.0-1552.

Sonic Heroes Demo

The Sonic Heroes start menu cutscene displays garbage at the bottom of the screen. Fixed sometime before 5.0-1444.
