MaxPlay Classic Games Volume 1 is an unofficial video game compilation made by Datel, known for the Action Replay series of cheat devices, and the only published unlicensed game for the Nintendo GameCube. Despite the title, there is no evidence of a second volume ever being made. The collection features ten games, all unofficial remakes of classic games:

  • Invaders
  • Loop the Loop
  • Dragon Tiles 3
  • Bounty Hunter X
  • Chopper 2
  • Jet Pack 2
  • Paddle Panic
  • Pop 'Em
  • Proxima
  • Super Power Shot

Emulation Information

Datel Disc Bootup

On top of being difficult to rip, Datel GameCube discs require the official GameCube BIOS in order to boot. DSP-LLE is also required for the games to boot properly. Without these requirements fulfilled, Dolphin will crash.

Problems

Incorrect BAT error

When exiting out of certain games, Dolphin will throw an error "Incorrect BAT. Dolphin will now close." and promptly crash. To avoid, do not exit the games using the built-in Z + Start option. See issue 9333.

FIFO Error

Generates a "FIFO is overflowed by GatherPipe ! CPU thread is too fast!" error at start-up. Pressing "Yes" on that dialog and "OK" on the next two will allow the game to start. Single Core doesn't seem to have this issue.

Configuration

Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed. A full list of options is available here.
