Interactive Multi Game Demo Disc v1 (aka Interactive Multi Game Demo Disc: March 2002 in Europe) 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. The game and video order and the NBA Courtside 2002 video of the European demo disc is different US counterpart. The European NBA Courtside 2002 shows the final version of the game due to the European disc releasing later. The rest contents are the same though.

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

Rogue Leader

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 in 5.0-5874 only MMU must be set.

Movie Freeze

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 5.0-5874.

Configuration

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