One day, in Pooyan in the middle of a forest, a group of fierce Wolves attacked the House where a Mother Pig (Mama) and her little Piglets (Pooyans) were living together peacefully. To protect her Pooyans, Mama fought back using arrows and bait, but despite all of her efforts, some of the Pooyans were kidnapped. Full of hate for the Wolves, Mama bravely seeks out the Wolves' Lair to rescue her Pooyans. Will she succeed in overcoming the Wolves and bringing her Pooyans back home?
Problems that may occur with any NES title on Dolphin are listed below.
DirectX with NES Games
Most NES games suffer strange graphical issues when using the DirectX backend with some graphics drivers; notably NVIDIA. This is a driver bug.
As of, the D3D driver bugs can be worked around by setting Ubershaders to Exclusive/Synchronous (Ubershaders). It's unknown what exactly is going on with the driver that's causing Exclusive Ubershaders/Synchronous (Ubershaders) to work properly.
This seems to have been rectified at some point, though it's unclear what resolved it.
This title does not have any additional game-specific problems.
This title does not need non-default settings to run properly.
