Problems[edit]

Microphone Configuration[edit]

To enable Mic support go to Options -> Configure -> GameCube, and set Slot B to "Mic". Set its button to GCN Pad 2, it does not work on Pad 1.

Spinner Cell Minigame [edit]

The Spinner Cell minigame eventually shows only a black screen. At the start of the game, it renders well but the characters are flickering. As the game continues, only the shadows are rendered, and finally the whole screen turns to black for the rest of the game. See issue 4684. Fixed by 4.0-1706.

Configuration[edit]

This game doesn't need non-default settings to run properly. If you want to get an overview about settings related to performance, please see the performance guide. A full list of config options is available at Template:Config/doc
