Dolphin Forum thread
DJ Hero is a music video game, developed by FreeStyleGames and published by Activision as a rhythm game spin-off of the Guitar Hero franchise. It was released on October 27, 2009 in North America and on October 29, 2009 in Europe. The game is based on turntablism, the act of creating a new musical work from one or more previously recorded songs using record players and sound effect generators, and features 94 remixes of two different songs from a selection of over 100 different songs across numerous genres.
The DJ Hero series uses a turntable peripheral. Using a real Wii Remote and real turntable works without any special configuration. Dolphin does have a emulated turntable peripheral within the emulated Wii Remote configuration menu. It must be selected and configured for the game to be playable.
Wi-Fi Connection Hang
After Dolphin has performed an online system update (i.e. has the Wii System Menu and Mii Channel installed) this title may hang when attempting to connect the contact Nintendo Wi-Fi connection. This can be accounted for by deleting: clientca.pem, clientcakey.pem, and rootca.pem; though this may impact the operation of the Wii System Menu. DJ Hero will then fail when attempting an online connection, allowing the game to progress.
No configuration changes are known to affect compatibility for this title.
