Interactive Multi Game Demo Disc v1, also called Interactive Multi Game Demo Disc October 2001 (aka Interactive Multi Game Demo Disc: March 2002 in Europe) is a playable demo disc for the Nintendo GameCube. The game and video order of the European demo disc is different from its US counterpart. The European video of NBA Courtside 2002 is different too. The European video shows the final version of the game due to the European disc releasing later. The other contents are pretty much the same though. The discs include:

Playable games:

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.

Problems

US: Movie Freeze and Stutter

The movie for Wave Race will freeze and Wave Race and Luigi's Mansion stutter, though pressing any button will return back to the main menu. Freezes occur consistently. This is only an issue with the US version of the game.

Rogue Leader: Invalid Read

The demo and movie for Rogue Leader will result in continuous "Invalid read" errors and requires MMU to boot and play properly.

Rogue Leader: Menu Corruption

The lower third of the menu screen will flicker with some random image. It switches between one working frame and one broken. Fixed by 5.0-8900.

Distorted Music

Music is garbled and distorted with DSP-HLE. Use DSP-LLE to rectify this, or disable music in the game's options as a workaround. Refer issue 7228. Fixed in 5.0-3260.

The scrolling GameCube logo in the demo disc intro is invisible if XFB is set to Virtual. It requires XFB to be disabled or set to Real to show up properly. Roque Leader also needs XFB enabled to work correctly. Fixed with Hybrid XFB in 5.0-5874.
