In Luigi's Mansion, Luigi steps out from the shadow of his brother Mario and into the gloomy shadows of a very haunted house in this, his first-ever starring role. When Luigi learns that he's the proud new owner of a creepy old mansion, he's thrilled. Of course, his feelings immediately shift when his brother, the storied Mario, disappears from the house. Now, you'll have to help Luigi track his brother down, making your way through expansive 3D levels. Each stage is packed with ghosts and ghouls to put you on edge; and you'll be armed with a flashlight and a vacuum cleaner to help you capture your foes. Armed with a flashlight and a customized vacuum cleaner, Luigi must rid the mansion of Boos and ghouls — and find his missing brother to boot!

Mario Portrait Blur
The blurry effect on Mario's picture in King Boo's Hall is not emulated properly.
Static in the Music Sheets Battle (LLE)
As of DSP LLE to avoid these problems. Fixed with ., music stopping and popping has been fixed. However, volume issues and associated distortions still remain. Use
Lines on Geometry
Even on console, Luigi's Mansion has minor depth issues present throughout the game, usually as dark lines throughout on Luigi's Face and ears. However, since the shadows were fixed in, Dolphin currently make this error more severe than on console, showing thick black lines through objects that rapidly move as Luigi moves through the level.
16:9 Aspect Ratio Fix
The built-in Widescreen Hack causes shadow issues. The following AR codes work as a replacement, causing less issues. To avoid conflicts, make sure that Widescreen Hack is disabled while using these codes.

|Windows 7||AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400 @ 2.2GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GT 440||Nearly perfect, OpenGL and DX11 work with less performance but better image quality.||Endres|
|Windows Vista||Intel Pentium P6100 @ 2GHz||Intel HD graphics||Works normally and fully playable but the graphics is all pixelated. To get a rid from the pixels is needed to change the resolution to 1280x720.|
|Windows 7||Intel Core i7-2620M @ 2.7GHz||Intel HD 3000||Close to perfect. Do not run in DX9 or OpenGL for it will crash or have black-screen. Running at 720P at 30FPS consistently. No hitches with game play but use DX11 for Intel HD Graphics. No slowing down during boss fights either. Also running on a laptop.||cohn|
|Windows 7||AMD Phenom II x6 @ 3.2GHz||AMD Radeon HD 5750||Perfect, but normal settings caused weird graphical problems. The screen seemed to have purple EFB problems. Disabling EFB turned them black. Checking "Ignore Format Changes" got rid of them.|

|Windows 7||Intel Core i5-3570K||NVIDIA GeForce 560 Ti||Fullspeed, good sound with LLE, no shadows glitch makes it unplayable for me as it ruins the atmosphere of the game.|
|Windows 7||Intel Core i7-3770 @ 3.4GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680||Fully Playable without any lags with TXAA on from the NVIDIA Control Panel and in 1080p!||StarDave|
|Windows 7||Intel Core i5-3570K||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560||Works well but shadows are still missing, atmosphere of the game is ruined because of this.|
|Windows 7||Intel Core i5-3570K @ 4.4GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460||Game is 100% playable. Shadows do not work in 4.0.1 still. OpenGL backend AA and AF are 100% working. Game runs just fine. Set EFB copies to "Texture" to help with low resolution mirrors and keep texture accuracy to fast to give you a speedup.||Kilobytez95|
|Windows 8.1||Intel Core i7-3770K @ 4.3GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690||Fully playable. Shadows fixed. Direct3D, 16xAF, AAS8Q32, 1920x1080 3x Native||PpmeiS|

|Windows 8.1||Intel Core i3 @ 1.9GHz||Intel HD Graphics 4400||Playable: 20-40FPS with AA and Vsync off, Per-Pixel Lighting has little to no effect on FPS, internal res set to 1.5, Anisotropic Filtering set to 8x in OpenGL backend||SharkTester|
|Windows 7||Intel Core i7-4770K @ 4GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970||Fully Playable at 50FPS and at 100% Speed, no problems so far. Running on Direct3D at 4x Native Resolution with 4x AntiAlias and 8x Anistropic Filtering.||Left4Pillz|

|Windows 10||Intel Core M-5y71 @1.2GHz||Intel HD Graphics 5300||Unplayable, crashes entire emulator in OS when at start screen upon pressing start. Applies to 4.0-5283 thru current (4.0-7481) and likely many, many more builds prior to 4.0-5283. This issue does not exist for the last stable version, 4.0.2. Presumably GPU and/or OS dependent.||Anonymous user|
|Windows 7||AMD Phenom II X4 965 @ 3.4GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660||Playable. Almost perfect. The only small issue I have detected is that the blurry effect on Mario's picture in King Boo's Hall is not emulated properly like in the actual game. At least within the European version.||Kenny|
|Windows 10||Intel Core i5-4690K @ 4.2GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660||Fully playable: Runs well above full speed on the OpenGL backend. Haven't encountered any problems.||Aplayer12345|
|Windows 8.1||Intel Core i5-3210M @ 2.5 GHz||NVIDIA GeForce 610M||GameID: GLME01
Played the game from start to finish (no Hidden Mansion). No issues except for the Mario Portrait Blur effect not working.
