Booting the game for the first time (or when no save data exists) will freeze Dolphin at the "You need classic controller" screen, but it didn't freeze. The game is creating the save file, but a problem with Dolphin make that process take much more time than on a real Wii, taking around 5 minutes to complete. After save data creation finished, Dolphin will unfreeze and the emulation will resume. Please note that stopping the emulation or closing Dolphin during this process will leave the save data corrupt and the game won't boot next time complaining about that.
