Step into the shadows of Gotham City's dangerous criminal underworld as Batman. Based on the movie of the same name, Batman Begins lets you explore both the origins of the "dark knight" and his transformation into a superhero. As Batman, you must use your strength and an array of high-tech gadgets to fight the evil forces that threaten the city, including Scarecrow, Ra's Al Ghul, and Carmine Falcone.

Emulation Information


Batman Begins has a native 16:9 display option, but it requires enabling it in its internal options and setting Dolphin's Aspect Ratio graphics setting to "Auto". Using the widescreen hack with this title is not recommended.


Random speedups and audio desync

At certain points, the game may randomly speed up and cause the audio to go out of sync. If this happens, a possible workaround is to set Dolphin's emulated CPU clock speed to 400%, as noted in issue 9887. Information on modifying the game-specific ini file for CPU Overclocking can be found here.


60 FPS

The following AR code will make the game run at 60FPS instead of 30.

This title has been tested on the environments listed below:

Test Entries
Revision OS CPU GPU Result Tester
r7411 Windows XP Intel Atom N270 @ 1.6 GHz Intel GMA 945 Playable 7-11FPS. Slow in Explosions. Sound Off for best performance. LORPAL
3.0-370 Arch Linux 3.1.3 Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400 @ 2.66 GHz NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT Playable with the defaults settings (50-60FPS) zuargo
4.0-2069 Windows 7 Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 @ 2.83 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280 Runs perfectly, full speed throughout. Use default settings and any internal resolution apart from Auto(Window Size), as that one offsets framebuffer effects like the glow of lamps and car headlights. For the best results though, EFB should be set to RAM. This also properly emulates bloom lighting throughout the game and fixes the blur effect on batmobile sections, but obviously affects framerate MasterV
5.0 Windows 10 AMD FX-8320 @ 4.2 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti Runs really well. Joshe343
