Fight Night Round 2 is the sequel to EA Sports' Fight Night 2004. It was the only Fight Night game in the series to be released on GameCube. The GameCube version contains the SNES version of Super Punch-Out‼ along with its protagonist as an unlockable character.

Emulation Information


Fight Night Round 2 has a native 16:9 display option, but it requires enabling it in its internal options and setting Dolphin's Aspect Ratio graphics setting to "Force 16:9". Using the widescreen hack with this title is not recommended.


VP6 Videos

Fight Night Round 2 uses the VP6 video codec, common in Electronic Arts' titles, causing its videos to have vertical line artifacts and other glitches on many graphics cards. The Software Render will display VP6 video correctly, but is typically too slow. VP6 rendering also reacts poorly to the Force Texture Filtering enhancements (and Anisotropic Filtering on NVIDIA), causing further scrambling. See issue 7193. In 5.0-15515 or newer, this can be fixed with "Manual Texture Sampling" in the Graphics Settings -> Advanced menu.


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