r4089 Windows XP Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 @ 2.13 GHz NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT The graphics are perfect with no bugs and the game always runs at full speed (50/60FPS). This game doesn't need a hefty PC to run at full speed, i have the audio throttle enabled to keep the game at a steady speed so it doesn't run at 80FPS.

The audio is good but can be buggy sometimes. You can create a save game and play right through the game as you would on a Wii. Pikmin Wii (NPC) on Dolphin Wii/GC Emulator (720p HD)

r7128 Windows 7 Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 @ 3.2 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 275 896MB Tested NA version, runs fine, with minimal glitches. Some slowdown, but very playable. Tested through start of second level. Occasional nasty slowdown after changing to fullscreen, difficult to replicate. Shadow flicker on some grass types. Some sound crackling with DSP HLE. MayImilae
r7408 Windows 7 Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 @ 3.2 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 275 896MB Runs better in r7408, but still has some glitches. Slowdown at start of a stage and flicker with grass are both gone. Sound crackling remains. Observed nasty slowdown when turning on "EFB Enable CPU Access". MayImilae
5.0-1424 Windows 10 AMD Phenom II x6 1090T @ 3.2 GHz AMD R9 280 Running at 3x internal resolution, 2xSMAA and 16xAF and DX11. Some slowdown in later levels when walking through water with a group of Pikmin; otherwise great. Sam3
