Action Replay (GC)
|Release date(s)||NA November 3, 2003|
|Input methods||GameCube Controller|
Action Replay is a cheat device that allowed for game enhancements and unauthorized cheats.
Missing SD card adapter support
Dolphin does not emulate the official Nintendo memory card to SD card adapter, which is used to store applications to launch with the SD Media Launcher functionality found in some releases. See issue 11757.
Action Replay Hardware
Action Replay will complain about missing hardware if no Memory Card is selected for Slot B. When you select "Start Game" or "Freeloader" in the main menu, Action Replay will freeze in "Updating Action Replay Hardware" screen, but disabling and reenabling the Memory Card from slot B in Dolphin (while emulation is running) will unfreeze it, allowing the disc to be swapped and the game to start.
IPL ROM Dump Required
Action Replay will always crash at boot or freeze in a black screen unless Skip BIOS is disabled and DSP LLE is selected. Skip BIOS can only be disabled if an IPL dump from a real GameCube is present in User\GC. This has been fixed since 5.0-16737.
