Interactive Multi Game Demo Disc v9 is a playable demo disc for the Nintendo GameCube. Playable games include The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and Metroid Prime. Video previews include Metroid Prime, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, 1080° Avalanche, Wario World, Black & Bruised, and an ESRB ratings commercial featuring Derek Jeter.
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.
|NTSC CRC32||Brazil CRC32||PAL CRC32|
Video playback requires XFB (External Frame Buffer):Real. Presumed fixed with Hybrid XFB in, though odd purple glitches may still occur.
