Mario Kart Wii includes 16 new courses and 16 classic courses from previous Mario Kart games. For the first time ever, players have the option of racing with either karts or motorbikes. Players can also hit the road as their personalized Mii caricatures in addition to the handful of classic Nintendo characters found in the game. True to the series, the game features tons of racing, plenty of power-ups and oodles of objects for players to use to slow down other drivers. This title can install the Mario Kart Channel on the Wii console.

Emulation Information

Controller Map Overlap

Mario Kart Wii 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.

Missing Map

If graphics settings are changed during a race, the map in the bottom right corner and Mii faces may disappear. The faces of the racers will still show up. This won't happen when Store EFB Copies to Texture Only is disabled.


Coin Runners Mode: Arena Map is rarely updated

In Coin Runners Mode, the Arena Map is rarely updated, if Texture Cache Accuracy is set to fast or medium. To fix, set it to safe.

WiiConnect24 / RiiConnect24

The WiiConnect24/RiiConnect24 features of this title cannot be used because Dolphin does not currently support them. Refer to issue 10200.

Wii Pinboard Pictures

To properly display images pinned to the Wii Pinboard, Store XFB Copies to Texture Only must be disabled before the image is created.

Lens Flare Effect

For the lens flare effect to be emulated when looking towards the sun, Store EFB Copies to Texture Only must be disabled.

PAL50 Flickering

This game does some weird depth based effects when rendering at PAL50. D3D11/12 do not handle this effect correctly. To fix, use OpenGL or enable PAL60 mode.

Disconnected Controllers Message

When disconnecting a gamepad that emulates a GameCube Controller, the game won't show a message about the disconnected controller, like it does when played on console. Refer to issue 11323.

Main Menu: Transparency of the Buttons is displayed incorrectly

After entering the Main Menu, small videos are played in the background on the buttons for the different Game Modes. Before they are loaded, the buttons are displayed transparently. This is displayed incorrectly in Dolphin. Refer to issue 11909. This has been fixed in 5.0-16012.

Translucent Blue Rectangle

If Disable Fog is disabled and Ignore Format Changes is enabled, a translucent blue rectangle will be present on the screen. If Ignore Format Changes is disabled, the translucent blue rectangle will no longer appear. Ignore Format Changes is now disabled by default.

Vulkan Backend Issues

When using the Vulkan backend the Wii Remote warning may render incorrectly and a frosted box appears in the upper left corner of races. Refer issue 9890. This seemed to duplicate the Translucent Blue Rectangle problem corrected by disabling Ignore Format Changes.

Channel Installation Functionality

The Mario Kart Channel is not installed properly, even though the game indicates the install completed successfully. Partly fixed by 5.0-1837, which added initial title import support, but breaks the NAND when actually installing the channel. 5.0-2706 completely fixes the issue.

Error 109144 ("Unable to connect to the Internet.")

Certain Wii apps that depend on Region Select, will instantly produce this error message when trying to connect to them online. While the cause of the error is debated, the error code is intended to mean "WC24 account not registered", potentially related to how all default-NAND Dolphin configurations have the Wii number (a.k.a. Friend Code) 0000 0000 0000 0000 by default. Fixing the error would potentially require changing the number, which likely requires a NAND dump; as of February 2024, third-party apps to change subregions did not work in Dolphin.


Toad's Factory: Arrows on the Conveyor Belts

The red and green glow on the conveyor belts on Toad's Factory fade out as you get closer to them. If Texture Filtering is set to Anisotropic or Internal Resolution higher than 1x (640×528) is used, the arrows fade out too early. Refer to issue 12047.

60 FPS in Multiplayer

When playing with 3-4 players in split-screen multiplayer, the framerate is locked at 30 FPS. These Gecko codes provided below will make split-screen multiplayer levels play at 60 FPS.

HD Texture Pack

Mario Kart Wii HD Remaster Project forum thread The pack on the first page has 87 MB of textures. Walamo15's newer pack (last updated on page 9 at the time of writing) has 635 MB of textures.

Bloom Offset at Higher IR

When playing at higher internal resolutions, bloom effects will scale incorrectly, with multiple copies of the bloom spread out from the source, which can be very distracting.

A workaround is to disable Scaled EFB Copy, which will cause all EFB effects to be rendered at native resolution.

Since 5.0-16763, Graphics Mods can be used to make only bloom render at native resolution, or to disable it altogether.

Because it was often rendered at low resolutions, the bloom may appear shimmery when rendered at native resolution.

Memory Size Override

There is no benefit to enabling this option for the base game, and it can cause crashes if Memory Size Override is enabled when the game/mod does not expect it to be enabled. However, some Mario Kart Wii mods may want to use increased Memory in order to store more tracks in memory, bigger textures, etc. It is recommended to only enable Memory Size Override when the mod specifically supports it and to follow the guidelines of the mod in order to prevent adverse effects. Increasing MEM1 is known to cause crashes with Online Play.


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

3.0-228 Windows 7 AMD Phenom II X4 965 @ 3.42 GHz ATI Radeon HD 4600 Comfortably playable at mostly 60FPS despite default OR recommended settings. HOWEVER, Time Trial feature will not replay ghosts that are ported from a Wii Save. As a result, racing/learning World/Regional Record ghost lines/times is not possible. For debugging information, there is one course that seems to be fully functional which is SNES Mario Circuit 3, hope this helps?

3.0-235 Windows 7 Intel Core i7-2630QM @ 2.0 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M Unplayable: 10-15FPS; 30% game speed. I have tried close to every combination of settings with no luck.

EDIT: Searching for ways to improve my emulation speed, I found that overclocking my GPU did the job. I now get 40-60FPS at 70-100% GameSpeed in menus, and a constant 60FPS and 100% GameSpeed during a race.

3.0-578 Windows 7 Intel Core i7-2630QM @ 2.0 GHz AMD Radeon HD 6770M 50% with suggested settings, 100% with EFB copies set to Texture. 2-Player gets about 60% with EFB Texture and 50% with EFB RAM.
3.0-586 Windows 7 Intel Core i7-920 @ 2.66 GHz NVIDIA GeForce 560 Ti With all suggested setting I was getting 35-45FPS avg, I then Overclocked my CPU from 2660MHz to 2760MHz (small amount I know) I'm now getting the full 60-70FPS. When overclocked to 3000MHz was getting 75-86FPS. So make sure your CPU is at a decent speed as a little extra MHz can make a large difference. N.B. Overclocking the GPU seemed to have no effect for me. Anon
3.0-684 Windows 7 AMD FX-4100 @ 4.5 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250 Tested with (DX9). Unfortunately this is not fantastic game with Constant Spielgeschwindkeit which videos are often slow in the game when many drivers are on the screen to go the 50FPS lost, so usually then to 40FPS. with 2-player mode, the emulation is usually to 30-40FPS. I think the best option Emulationsgeschwindkeit "EFB Copies" on TEXTURE would provide, as well as providing the "internal resolution" at quite low. To criticize is that sometimes not all the graphics loaded, even "Choose Profile" at, and even "select vehicle" at. (sic, Google Translate) Serverbot777

4.0-3638 Windows 8.1 AMD A10-5800K @ 4.2 GHz AMD Radeon HD 7660D Good: Frames may drop in races against CPU. Solo time trials work fine at constant 60FPS. Menus with video playback may cause slowdowns. OpenGL seems to run slower, especially in menus. Audio distortion in races against CPU.

5.0-rc-33 Mac OS X 10.10.3 Intel Core i5 @ 3.3 GHz Intel Iris Pretty Good. A few lag spikes here and there, mostly during menus and the level browsing before a game. I've only tried single player. I use 1x Native, no anti-aliasing, 1x Filtering, scaled EFB copy and EFB to Texture only, mostly to save battery power.
5.0-rc-35 Windows 7 Intel Core i7-960 @ 3.2 GHz AMD Radeon HD 5800 Near flawless emulation, with only a few minor slowdowns here and there (and even then, it's only on menus, and when the Lightning item is used).

5.0-15993 Arch Linux AMD Ryzen 5 3600 @ 3.7 GHz AMD RX 580 Perfectly playable with 1080p and 60 FPS. Mister 64
5.0-15993 Windows 10 Intel Core i5-2300 @ 2.8 GHz AMD Radeon HD 6770 Direct3D 11, 3xNative, 1xAF, 1x MSAA. Almost perfect. The game runs at a smooth 60 fps, except Maple Treeway and Grumble Volcano play at 45fps because this hardware has a problem with particle effects on the Wii, and there are particle maple leaves and volcano flakes on those levels. In the trial runs only, sometimes Rainbow Road has a particle effect that causes 30fps on this GPU, but it is rare. The other 39 out of 42 areas run perfectly. There is some slowdown when the course is loading for the first time, during the course preview cutscene, but this does not appear on subsequent runs. SpectraNocturne
