Emulation Information

Tile Edges

Sometimes image tiles seem to be rendered 1px off, leaving small gaps or improperly drawn tile edges. This occurs even with 1x Internal Resolution and Anisotropic Filtering / Anti-aliasing off. Refer issue 6833. This is due to various texture interpolation issues and may happen on a real Wii. This may not occur with PAL releases. This is only true for the NTSC version, which does happen on console. Increasing the IR causes it to show up in places it does not happen on console.


Save State Support

Using Dolphin save states causes controls to become stuck shortly after load, making progress impossible.


Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.
