Donkey Kong Original Edition is a modified version of Donkey Kong that was released in 2010 as a preinstalled title on a special red Wii variant. This version features the cement factory stage that was absent from the original NES version, and re-introduced some animations.
Problems that may occur with any NES title on Dolphin are listed below.
DirectX with NES Games
Most NES games suffer strange graphical issues when using the DirectX backend with some graphics drivers; notably NVIDIA. This is a driver bug.
As of, the D3D driver bugs can be worked around by setting Ubershaders to Exclusive/Synchronous (Ubershaders). It's unknown what exactly is going on with the driver that's causing Exclusive Ubershaders/Synchronous (Ubershaders) to work properly.
This seems to have been rectified at some point, though it's unclear what resolved it.
This title does not have any additional game-specific problems.
No configuration changes are known to affect compatibility for this title.

|Runs a consistent 50fps, also meaning it has the same sound pitches as the original PAL NES version. Colours look slightly bleak. Tested with Vulkan.
