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 augmented 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 used by Dolphin are named "IPL.bin", but may have other titles depending on their source, and should be 2,097,152 bytes in size. One exists for each major GameCube region (JP, NA, EU). The known BIOS CRC32 checksums below can be used to validate files, but variations with other checksums may exist.

Problems

Super Mario Sunshine Graffiti Behaves Oddly

Without Store EFB Copies to Texture Only unchecked, graffiti doesn't affect Mario.

Star Fox Adventures Shadows

In D3D (only on Windows 7 as of 5.0-5404), shadows may appear distorted or even be copied from other objects, such as Fox with an arwing shaped shadow while near the ship. Windows 7 does not support Direct3D 11.1's Windows Display Driver Model 1.2 preventing Dolphin's emulation of the related LogicOps functionality from working. Use OpenGL or Vulkan to avoid this issue.

Star Fox Adventures Glow Effects

Glow effects render poorly with EFB Copies to Texture Only on all backends. Disable EFB Copies to Texture Only to fix them.

Configuration

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