Metroid Prime (GC)
|Genre(s)||First Person Action Adventure|
|Input methods||GameCube Controller|
|GameIDs||GM8P01, GM8E01, GM8J01|
Metroid Prime is an action-packed adventure set in the first-person perspective that takes place just after the events in the original Metroid (NES). It has lead character Samus Aran, a bounty hunter by trade, chasing down the evil Space Pirates. Their intention is to use a genetic mutagen called Phazon to create a super army and take over the universe. While the installments in the series before have never been home to deeply involving storylines, Metroid Prime breaks the shell to offer up one of the most intriguing and read-worthy sagas yet. Developed by Texas-based Retro Studios. Metroid Prime brings all of the elements of the acclaimed franchise into a gaping 3D arena.
Garbled Text in JP Release
Ghosting Effect with Phazon Suit
- Not fixed yet
Broken x-ray/thermal visor
- Use efb to ram to fix
- It is extremely rare, but will happen sometimes regardless of settings.
- Sky becomes black when the room "Alcove" is opened (Where you get Space-Jump-Boots). The normal sky appears when the room is closed.
- There is a graphic bug with rain falling on the spaceship or on Samus's weapon. Broken since ("OpenGL: commit rodolfoosvaldobogado's speedup patches.")
- Dolphin - Metroid Prime rain bug (FIXED !)
- In revisions prior to , cinematics that start when doing nothing in the title menu may be broken.
Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.
|Off||Fog is required in the space frigate (possibly other dark areas as well) or else everything is just black|
|Fast||Fixes crash after landing with the ship on the space station and several other places, also fixes broken text.|
Works in stereo mode with the IZ3D-driver. The 32bit dolphin has to be used. The depth effect is nice. Big contrast might lead to ghosting. The convergence must be drastically changed when starting first time in 3D. The performance impact is quite severe.
