At the beginning of each game, the screen is divided and the two captains "stare off" before one throws the ball at the other. With '''EFB Copies to Texture Only''', the viewports that would show the captains show nothing but blackness. Disable '''EFB Copies to Texture Only''' to see them.
 
 
 
=== Shaking ===
 
With the D3D backend, the screen will constantly shake vertically at a 1 pixel size. The game is still playable, but it is very annoying. OpenGL does not have the shaking error, so use it as your video backend to avoid the issue.
 
 
 
=== Neon Sign Mini-game ===
 
This game uses a niche GCN feature known as ZCompLoc. Without it, during the Neon Sign mini-game the camera will zoom in on the sign, but something white will cover it and make it incredibly difficult to complete the mini-game. A hack has existed since {{revision|3.0-505}}, but a proper implementation of ZCompLoc was added to OpenGL in {{revision|3.5-1649}} and to D3D11 in {{revision|3.5-1729}}. The new implementation requires OpenGL 4.2+ or Direct3D11 compatibility. If your system cannot support the proper implementation, a warning will appear, and Dolphin will fall back to the old ZCompLoc hack. The problem may still occur while using the hack. See {{issue|6013}}.

Mario Super Sluggers, known in Japan as Super Mario Stadium Family Baseball (スーパーマリオスタジアム ファミリーベースボール, Sūpā Mario Sutajiamu Famirī Bēsubōru), is a sports video game for the Wii developed by Namco Bandai Games and NOW Production, and published by Nintendo. It is part of the Mario Sports series, and the sequel to Mario Superstar Baseball for the Nintendo GameCube. It was unreleased in Europe and Australia, due to being in production at the same time as Mario Kart Wii that was released two months earlier.

The gameplay of Mario Super Sluggers is similar to that of its predecessor: an arcade-style baseball game with power ups, multiple gameplay modes, and minigames. Sluggers primarily differs from Superstar Baseball with the addition of Wii controls akin to the Baseball sub-game in Wii Sports. There are three control methods available: Wii Remote by itself, Wii Remote and the Nunchuk, and the Wii Remote held sideways.

Problems

Background Menu Not Blurred

EFB Copies to Texture Only must be disabled to blur the background of the menu, like on the real hardware.

Configuration

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