NES Global Problems

[edit]

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 5.0-4869, the D3D driver bugs can be worked around by setting Ubershaders to Exclusive. It's unknown what exactly is going on with the driver that's causing Exclusive Ubershaders to work properly.

Problems

This title does not have any additional game-specific problems.

Test Entries
Revision OS Version CPU GPU Result Tester
4.0-8445 Windows 7 Intel Core i5-3570K @ 3.8GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 Works OK. Requires EFB2RAM. JMC47
5.0-4740 Windows 10 Intel Core i7-6700K @ 4GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Nearly perfect. Requires Store EFB Copies to Texture Only 'Off' and Texture Cache Accuracy 'Safe' to display sprites correctly. With D3D backend, going to fullscreen causes weird pictures appear in the screen. To fix this, use OpenGL or Vulkan backend. SuperSonic
