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 . 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.

Super Mario Sunshine Graffiti Behaves Oddly
Without Store EFB Copies to Texture Only unchecked, graffiti doesn't affect Mario.
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.
Star Fox Adventures Shadows
In D3D, shadows may appear distorted, or even be copied from other objects, such as Fox with an arwing shaped shadow while near the ship. OpenGL has had shadowing issues in the past, but seems to work properly. If you still see issues, try toggling fast-depth; as some GPUs may vary. Fixed by.
