Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events is a 2004 game based on the Lemony Snicket book series and film. The game is based primarily on the movie, which in turn is based on the plots of the first three books of the series: The Bad Beginning, The Reptile Room and The Wide Window. Players take the roles of Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire, solving puzzles, fighting villains and finding objects. Players encounter characters such as Mr. Poe, Uncle Monty and Aunt Josephine, along with villains such as Count Olaf, the hook-handed man, the white-faced women, and the bald man with the long nose.

Note: this is simply a render fix. Dolphin's widescreen hack will still need to be enabled.



  • May slow down in some sections depending on the build and/or configuration
  • Bink FMVs stutter and/or skip in OpenGL mode; switching to DirectX seems to do the trick
  • Tim Curry's narration may also be cut off, or slow down the game on certain occasions


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