Command Line Options
Dolphin includes a variety of command line options that may be useful for scripts, development, or debugging. Basic help and usage for them can be shown by running "Dolphin --help". The options are as follows:
-h, --help Show this help message -d, --debugger Opens the debugger -l, --logger Opens the logger -e, --exec=<str> Loads a specific game file (ELF, DOL, GCM, ISO, WBFS, CISO, GCZ, WAD) -b, --batch Exit Dolphin with emulator -c, --confirm Set "Confirm on Stop". -v, --video_backend=<str> Specifies a video backend to use, D3D or OGL. -a, --audio_emulation=<str> Specified the type of audio to use, HLE or LLE. -m, --movie=<str> Plays a movie file -u, --user=<str> Specifies a path to the user directory -C, --config=<System>.<Section>.<Key>=<Value> Set a configuration option.
A shortcut file on Windows can be customized with command line arguments to a specific Dolphin build. First create a shortcut to the executable of the Dolphin build desired, then open the shortcut's properties and edit the target field. After the path to dolphin, add an argument like --logger, then save. Using --logger as an example, the shortcut will then launch the Dolphin with its logger window opened. The -u option will override the portable.txt file. The --help option is a CLI message, only command line window can view it.
Dolphin will check if that file exists in the same directory, then it will not use the default user directory; instead, it will create a \User\ folder in the same directory as the executable.
