In Skylanders Trap Team, Kaos continues his ongoing quest to rule over Skylands. He has discovered the location of the legendary Cloudcracker Prison -- a fortress built entirely out of the magical substance Traptanium and home to Skylands' most nefarious baddies. In an attempt to build his own army of foes, Kaos blows up the prison, releasing the most wanted villains and blasting shards of Traptanium to Earth in the form of Traps. Now it's up to Portal Masters to recapture all of the escaped villains using powerful Traptanium Traps and defeat Kaos before it's too late!

Emulation Information

Portal of Power

Skylanders: Trap Team requires a USB device called the Portal of Power. As of Dolphin 5.0-18299 you can choose to emulate this USB device directly within the emulator. If you have a physical Portal of Power and wish to continue off of saved progress in your existing figurines, you can use third party dumping tools to dump the figure data off of your existing Skylanders figures for use in the emulated Portal or create IDs directly within the emulated Portal of Power. Up to eight figurine data dumps can be used at a time.

If you wish to use a physical Portal of Power you can do so by installing the proper libusb 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 Portal". After doing this, the Portal of Power will work in Dolphin just fine whenever plugged in. You cannot use a physical portal and an emulated portal at the same time.
