Emulation Information

Improper GameCube Font

Due to copyright concerns, Dolphin is unable to include official GameCube fonts, and instead uses Droid Sans. Unfortunately, Droid Sans does not align well with the size/kerning of the official GameCube font, which can cause text to be misplaced, dialogs to display improperly, and other issues due to differing text sizes.

This can be corrected by including a region appropriate GameCube IPL (i.e. BIOS ROM) under <Dolphin User Folder>/GC/. A GameCube "IPL.bin" can be acquired from a real GameCube using Swiss. Refer issue 8362. GameCube BIOS files need to be named "IPL.bin" in order for Dolphin to detect them, and should be 2,097,152 bytes in size. IPL files are different for PAL consoles and NTSC consoles, but American NTSC consoles use the same IPL files as Japanese NTSC consoles. The known good CRC32 checksums below can be used to validate files, but it is possible that a bad dump with a different checksum also works.

Test Entries
Revision OS CPU GPU Result Tester
3.0-204 Windows 7 Intel Core i5-760 @ 2.8 GHz ATI Radeon HD 5770 Fairly solid 25-30FPS, some specific effects cause notable strain but seems to be CPU based strain. As noted above kanji is rendered with the internal SJIS font and can be difficult to read.
4.0-4474 Ubuntu 14.04 Intel Core i3-3220 @ 3.3 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Couldn't get very far because I can't speak Japanese. 100% speed with default settings. Everything I played was perfect as far as I can tell (compared to a longplay on youtube), except for the strange-looking kanji characters. Audio is accurate with HLE. Xerxes
4.0-5099 Ubuntu 14.10 Intel Core i3-3220 @ 3.3 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Same as above but kanji looks much better as of 4.0-5097. Perfect as far as I can tell. Xerxes
