Emulation Information

Network Certificates Required

Just Dance 2017 has functionalities that requires proper network certificates extracted from an IOS to work. Refer to the network guide for more information.

Online Features

The online features of Just Dance 2017, such as World Dance Floor and Community Remixes, have been shut down as of November 19, 2018, and work in neither Dolphin or on actual Wii hardware.

If you wish to use online features with these games, you must turn to fan servers such as Dance Party. As usual, always maintain caution when connecting to any third party service. Because of how this game's save system works, you must use a real Wii NAND and keys dumped from a physical console when connecting to an online service. If you do not, then you may end up corrupting your savedata and/or banned from the service.


Dancer Card Hang

Upon starting Just Dance 2017 for the first time, you'll need to create a Dancer Card. However, the game will hang and keep loading forever after creating it, which prevents reaching the main menu and thus renders the game unplayable. The same hang will also occur if you try to edit an existing Dancer Card or if you try to create new Dancer Cards later on. There's no solution at the moment, but you can work around this problem by disconnecting your computer from the internet before booting the game and creating your first Dancer Card or whenever you want to edit an existing Dancer Card. Refer to issue 11342. Fixed by 5.0-12952.

Hang after stopping emulation

On Dolphin 5.0-775 and newer, Just Dance 2017 will hang when closing Dolphin or manually stopping the emulation. The workaround is force stopping the emulation by clicking on the Stop button again; refer to issue 9852. Fixed in 5.0-2352.


This title does not need non-default settings to run properly.
