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

16:9

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.

Problems

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.

Enhancements

60 FPS

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

NTSC-U

$60FPS
