Improper GameCube Font
Due to copyright concerns Dolphin is unable to include official GameCube fonts, and instead uses Droid Sans. Unfortunately Droid Sans does not align well with the size/kerning of the official GameCube font, which can cause text to be misplaced, dialogs to display improperly, and other issues due to augmented text sizes.
This can be corrected by including a region appropriate GameCube IPL (i.e. BIOS ROM) under <Dolphin User Folder>/GC/. A GameCube "IPL.bin" can be acquired from a real GameCube using Swiss. Refer . GameCube BIOS files used by Dolphin are named "IPL.bin", but may have other titles depending on their source, and should be 2,097,152 bytes in size. One exists for each major GameCube region (JP, NA, EU). The known BIOS CRC32 checksums below can be used to validate files, but variations with other checksums may exist.
|NA CRC32||EU CRC32||JP CRC32|
Incorrect GameINI settings
Dolphin uses a GameINI system to set necessary options for your game depending on its ID. Unfortunately, this system assumes that all GameIDs starting with the character P are Virtual Console TurboGrafx-16 titles, when certain promotional/bonus discs for GameCube can also have an ID starting with P, including the Double Dash bonus disc. Currently (as of ), this only sets Texture Cache Accuracy to Safe which is not a dangerous setting, however this may change in the future. See . Fixed by .
