Dolphin is an open-source Nintendo GameCube, Wii, and Triforce emulator for Microsoft Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X (Intel-based). It is the first emulator to successfully run commercial GameCube and Wii games. It is still the only emulator capable of running commercial Wii games. Its name gives reference to the Nintendo Dolphin, which was the codename for the GameCube. Dolphin is a community driven project with developers from all over the world who work together to bring you this high-quality software with remarkable features.

Dolphin Emulator Wiki

In the same way as Dolphin, this wiki is a community driven project. Anyone can edit any page; even this main page! A lot of time and work is needed to make this the best resource available. One single person is not capable of achieving this. With everyone's help we can achieve our goals. Therefore, every bit of information is welcome and appreciated.
