Kirby's Dream Collection is a game for the Nintendo Wii, released in 2012 to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Kirby series. It features 3 modes: a set of challenge stages using the same technology as Kirby's Return to Dream Land, a playable set of older Kirby games (Dream Land, Adventure, Dream Land 2, Super Star, Dream Land 3, and 64: The Crystal Shards), and a museum mode, which provides information on both Nintendo and the world throughout the years.
Controller Map Overlap
Kirby's Dream Collection is capable of using both GameCube controllers and Wii Remotes. If a physical controller is set to emulate both a GameCube Controller and a Wii Remote concurrently, it will operate both devices at the same time. To fix, migrate controls to use separate physical controllers.
Wii remotes disconnect after choosing a classic title, they can be reconnected. This behavior also occurs on the Wii.
Kirby's Dream Land
Kirby's Dream Land 3 requires a Texture Cache Accuracy setting other than Fast to prevent graphical redraw issues (e.g. cursor selection on pause screen). Corrected via INI update prior to 5.0-6309.
Kirby's Adventure Blur IR > 1
Kirby's Adventure handles Internal Resolution oddly. When using x1 native resolution the display is slightly blurred, this blurring is significantly increased with any even, higher IR. Odd IR seem to reduce or eliminate the blurring.
- Any anti-aliasing causes visual artifacts in Kirby's Adventure.
- 2x or 4x MSAA or SSAA will darken the image in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards (8x is safe).
Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.
|Internal Resolution||1x (native)||Avoids distortion in Kirby's Adventure|
|Anti-Aliasing||Off||Avoid visual artifacts in Kirby's Adventure and Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards|

This title has been tested on the environments listed below:
|3.0-766||Windows 7||Intel Core i7||NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M||Perfect in menus and challenge stages, but sadly all of the classic playable games lock up upon starting. Also, all videos have major sound issues. At least the challenge stages work I guess.||Ac|
|3.5-1386||Windows 7||AMD Phenom II 960T @ 4.3 GHz||AMD Radeon HD 7850||All games work perfect except Kirby's Adventure which is a NES game.||Lumbeeslayer|
|4.0-8854||Windows 10||Intel Core i5-4670S @ 3.1 GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960||Works almost perfectly.||Jason|
