Skylanders: Swap Force is a platformer video game developed by Vicarious Visions/Beenox and published by Activision for the Wii. It is the third main game in the Skylanders video game and toy franchise, following 2012's Skylanders: Giants, which was a direct sequel to 2011's Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure.
The gameplay for Swap Force is based on the two previous games. Players use a portal to bring real life action figures into the video game. However, Skylanders are now able to jump, and they have exchangeable top and bottom halves that allows the player to mix and match. Because of the new features, a new Portal of Power is required and Swap Force is only available as a starter pack.
Portal of Power
Skylanders: Swap Force uses the Portal of Power but it's not emulated by Dolphin. A real Portal of Power can be used in Dolphin by installing proper drivers with Zadig. Follow the same install instructions for the GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U but instead of selecting "WUP-028" in the pulldown menu, use "Spyro Porta". After doing this, the Portal of Power will work in Dolphin just fine whenever plugged in.
