Interactive Multi Game Demo Disc v1 is a playable demo disc for the Nintendo GameCube. Playable games include Luigi's Mansion, Wave Race: Blue Storm and Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader. Video previews include Luigi's Mansion, Wave Race: Blue Storm, Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Pikmin and NBA Courtside 2002.
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 . 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.
|NA CRC32||EU CRC32||JP CRC32|
The demo and movie for Rogue Leader will result in continuous "Invalid read" errors and requires MMU and XFB enabled to boot and play properly. Post Hybrid XFB inonly MMU must be set.
The movies for Luigi's Mansion and Wave Race may freeze, though pressing any button will return back to the main menu. Freezes, when they occur, seem to occur consistently, but at different times depending on config / hardware.
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. Fixed with Hybrid XFB in.
Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.
