2 Games in 1: The Incredibles / Finding Nemo is a combination release of The Incredibles, and Finding Nemo. The two games were distributed on two discs. The first contains The Incredibles, and the second contains Finding Nemo. This collection was released in Germany and France. The game was released as 2 Games in 1: Disney/Pixar Die Unglaublichen + Disney/Pixar Findet Nemo in Germany and as 2 Games in 1: Disney/Pixar Les Indestructibles + Disney/Pixar Le Monde de Nemo. The game was never officially called 2 Games in 1: The Incredibles / Finding Nemo.

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 augmented text sizes.

This can be corrected by including a region appropriate GameCube IPL (i.e. BIOS ROM) under <Dolphin User Folder>/GC/. A GameCube "IPL.bin" can be acquired from a real GameCube using Swiss. Refer issue 8362. GameCube BIOS files used by Dolphin are named "IPL.bin", but may have other titles depending on their source, and should be 2,097,152 bytes in size. One exists for each major GameCube region (JP, NA, EU). The known BIOS CRC32 checksums below can be used to validate files, but variations with other checksums may exist.

Problems

The Incredibles: Faulty User Interface

The UI appearance animation, that is playing when exiting the menu or after an event (for example, Camera transitions), is faulty when the Power Gage is filled (blue bars). It starts to flicker during that animation. Refer issue 11293.

The Incredibles: Intro Cut-Scenes

Intro cutscenes don't render properly, but can be skipped. Fixed with Hybrid XFB in 5.0-5874.

Enhancements

The Incredibles: IR > 1x

Using Internal Resolution greater than Native (i.e. 1x) causes UI and shadow corruption. An orange border surrounds the screen and causes issues with The Incredibles UI elements too. The shadow is surrounded by dark squares. Vertex Rounding will solve the corruption at the screen border and the shadow issue, but won't fix UI elements of The Incredibles completely.

The Incredibles: Anti-aliasing

MSAA and SSAA Antialiasing causes UI corruption. An orange border surrounds the screen, and The Incredibles has corruption with UI element too.
