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.

v1.0 6DAC1F2A 4F319F43
v1.1 D5E6FEEA 667D0B64
v1.2 86573808 AD1B7F16


Rogue Leader Movie

The 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.

Star Fox Movie Freeze

The movie for Star Fox will freeze after a while of playing, though pressing any button will return back to the main menu.

Pikmin Demo

The demo for Pikmin freezes after the ESRB logo unless LLE audio is enabled.

NBA Courtside 2002 Interlace Issues

NBA Courtside only runs in 480i and it can't be run in progressive scan. Dolphin doesn't support interlaced fields, which is exhibited as the screen shaking/stuttering every frame.

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.


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