Needs IOS17

This game reloads IOS during emulation, so it won't work if one's NAND dump (User\Wii) doesn't have IOS17, otherwise Dolphin will freeze in a grey screen after Wiimote warning screen. To obtain a WAD of IOS17 ready to be installed on Dolphin (Tools => Install WAD) from a System Update Partition (only in games that comes with updates) or from NUS Downloader. However, with IOS17, Dolphin sometimes shows IOS reload errors when playing, but the game works without problems. Disabling Panic Handlers avoids these errors.


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


Config Setting Notes
Use Panic Handlers Off Prevents IOS reloads errors interrupting gameplay.
