New Super Mario Bros. Wii is a side-scrolling platform video game published and developed by Nintendo for the Wii. It is the first game in the Mario main series since the Mario Bros. arcade game to feature simultaneous multiplayer gameplay, and the first title to include Nintendo's new 'Super Guide' feature. The game’s plot is similar to those of other side-scrolling Mario games. New Super Mario Bros. Wii follows Mario as he fights his way through Bowser’s henchmen to rescue Princess Peach. Mario has access to several power-ups that help him complete his quest, including the Ice Flower, the Fire Flower, and the Starman, each giving him unique abilities. While traveling through up to nine worlds with a total of 88 levels, Mario must defeat Bowser's children, the Koopalings and Bowser Jr., and Bowser himself before finally saving Princess Peach.
 Blue Coins
Blue coins will be invisible unless EFB Copies to Ram is enabled. Coins can still be collected despite being invisible.
 Static Coins/Objects
With EFB to Texture some 2D elements, such as floating coins and question boxes, will not be animated. Use EFB to Ram with "Enable Cache" unchecked to fix it.
 Banding/Pixelated Shading
Shading will look weird by default, almost as if it's pixelated. Turn on "Force Texture Filtering" to resolve this.
Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed. Please see the performance guide for an overview of performance related settings. A full list of options is available at Template:Config/doc
|RAM||Makes blue coins visible, and needed to make 2D elements animate|
|Off||Required for animated 2D elements, like floating coins|

|r6871||Windows 7 x86||Intel Pentium Dual Core @ 3GHz||nVidia GeForce GT 440||Perfect, coins don't spin and blue coins are invisible, enabling RAM will fix it but will slowdown the game.||Brunn0121|

|r7409||Windows 7 x64||Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 @ 3.8GHz||nVidia GeForce 9600 GT||Fully playable: EFB->RAM causes slowdown to 60% FPS, EFB->Texture runs very well (without rotating coins)||GothicIII|

|r7483||Windows 7 x86||Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 @ 3GHz||nVidia GeForce 9500 GT||Working perfectly, besides the coins glitch. Use EFB->Texture for better performance, since it's needed a fairly huge system-specs to run EFB->RAM 100%.||Rafaello Fareday|

|3.0-421||Windows 7 x64||AND Phenom II X4 @ 3.83GHz||nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti||Runs at 60 FPS when EFB Copies is set to texture, but no rotating/blue coins. Runs at 45 FPS when set to RAM, but fixes the coin problem. I'll take 60 FPS over rotating coins.||AgainstYourthought|
|3.0-415||Mac OS X 10.6.8||Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.13GHz||nVidia GeForce 9400M||Runs really well, usually at 60 FPS (100%) when in closed areas or most levels. However, the maps slow down to about 75%, and levels with water tend to slow down too. The above graphical glitches do occur here; if EFB is set to RAM, then speed drastically goes to about 5%, a few FPS. I'd really rather not.||Ac|

|3.0-715||Windows 7 x64||Intel Core i5 @ 2.8GHz||Intel HD Graphics 3000||Almost playable with the performance guide settings, average of 50 FPS, so the game is slow motion. Oh, and on maps with lava, the FPS goes to ~40... it's even slower :(||Andreas Specht|
|3.0-716||Windows 7 x64||Intel Core i7-2600K @ 3.9GHz||nVidia GeForce GTX 560 TI||60 FPS limited with 3x resolution, OpenGL, EFB texture, with EFB RAM it goes to ~35 FPS, with EFB RAM + enable cache it can keep 60 FPS 50% of the time (the other 50% the game is slow motion and the blue coins are not invisible, the coins still don't spin)||Andreas Specht|
|3.0-754||Windows 8 x64||Intel Core i7-2600K @ 5.047Ghz||nVidia GeForce GTX 460||Perfect||Roger Carvalho|
|3.0-896||Windows 8 x64||Intel Pentium e5555 @ 3GHz||Intel GMA X4500||Es jugable (50FPS) sin RAM, pero activando el JITIL64, resolución 640x480 y seleccionando 2 saltos de fotogramas el juego se vuelve MUY RÁPIDO! (+60VPS). Una cosa más ES PELIGROSO, la temperatura de la CPU es más de 60ºC. (Is playable (50 FPS) without RAM, but enabling JITIL64, 640x480 resolution and selecting 2 frame skipping the game will be VERY FASTER!! (+60 VPS). One thing more: IS DANGEROUS, the CPU temp is more than 140ºF.)|
|3.5||Windows Vista x86||Intel Pentium 4 @ 3.2GHz||Intel GMA 82945G Express Chipset||Only 17~25 FPS due to graphics chipset, but surprisingly quite playable. All/most problems are still present in the new Dolphin 3.5, but nothing unbearable. Performance guide settings.||Wiigeek336|
|3.5-514||Windows 7 x64||Intel Core i7 2670QM @ 2.9GHz||nVidia GeForce GTX 560M||Full speed with animated textures at certain settings.
|3.5-1371||Linux Debian Wheezy x86_64||AMD Phenom II X3 720 @ 2.8GHz||nVidia GeForce GT 520||EFB copies to texture, blue coins not visible, coins not animated. Half of the game levels play at near full speed, with occasional stuttering. Levels with lava have more stuttering. Underwater levels and sand levels are very slow and barely playable. The last section, with King Koopa, is barely playable.|
|3.5-367||Windows 7 x64||Intel Core i7 2600K @ 3.4GHz||nVidia GeForce GTX 560Ti||Dolphin Configuration: Fremelimit: Auto, Limit by FPS [ON]; JITIL experimental recompiler
General: Direct3D9; V-Sync [ON]; Aspect Ratio: Force 16:9
Enhacements: Auto (Multiply ...) (but even with 4xNative works 60+ FPS !!!); AA:None; Anistropic 16x; Scales EFB Copy [ON]; Force Texture Filtering [ON]
Hacks: Ignore Format Changes [ON]; EFB Copies -> RAM (Enable Cache [OFF]); External Frame Fuffer: Disable [ON]; Other: Cache Display Lists [ON], OpenMP Texture Decoder [ON]
Result: almost everywhere 70+ FPS and looks like on my Wii but it's in HD :)
|3.5-1031||Windows 7 x64||Intel Core i5 3570k||AMD Radeon HD 7950||Maxed out at 1080p, DX9, no AA, 16x AF. 60 FPS reported with recommended settings, but visible slowdown present in scenes with heavy particles/spinning coins, especially in the Desert levels. Perfect sound output using DSP LLE.||Siphillis|
|3.5||Windows XP x86||Intel Core 2 Duo E4400 @ 2GHz||ATI Radeon HD 4650||Very playable! Normally, I get 40 - 60 FPS (50 almost all time). In the map, the speed drops to 45 FPS, and the speed goes to 73%.||DmitryN|
|3.5||Windows 7 x64||AMD Athlon II x2 270 @ 3.4GHz||nVidia GeForce GTX 650ti||EFB copies to texture blue coins not visible but playing in full speed 60 FPS all levels and worlds when I turn of framelimit game play at AVG 90 FPS! its much better on win 7 x64 then win xp x86||Mirocroatia|

|4.0||Intel Pentium Dual-Core @ 2.5Ghz||20-30 FPS Playable/With Recommended Configuration|
|4.0-1349||Windows 8 x64||AMD FX-6300 @ 3.6GHz||AMD Radeon HD 6450||Stable 60 FPS. EFB copies to RAM makes blue coins visible, but it makes a huge speed drop (15-25 FPS).||Faefdsedf|
|4.0-1364||Windows 8 x64||Intel Core i7-4770K @ 4.5GHz||nVidia GeForce GTX 770 SLI||Perfect emulation = 60 FPS with 4x native resolution and antialiasing 16x.||Xelion|
