Super Mario Sunshine is a platform game developed by Nintendo Entertainment Analysis and Development and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo GameCube. It was released in Japan on July 2002, in North America on August 2002, and in Europe and Australia on October 2002. It was the first 3D Mario platformer since the release of Super Mario 64 in 1996. Super Mario Sunshine's successor is Super Mario Galaxy, which was released for the Wii in 2007.
Occasional freezing may be caused by a FIFO issue introduced in. However, a change to FIFO in seems to eliminate this issue.
The game frequently experiences framedrops while the emulator claims the game is running at 100%. Use real XFB can fix the issue, but it will decrease quality and cause the screen to flash when frameskipping is on. Other speed issues may be resolved by switching off "Idle Skipping."
- The goo/oil may behave oddly and be impossible to spray away, see Configuration for fixes.
- The goo/oil may slide across surfaces and erase itself. This is caused by setting EFB scale to "Auto (Fractional) or "1". This glitch can be fixed by setting it to "Auto (Incremental)", "2" or "3". Some minor issues still occur, refer .
- Bubbles in goo are rendered oddly regardless of configuration, refer .
Durian Physics Glitch
The Durian Fruits respond erratically to Mario's movements, and will go flying uncontrollably when kicked. This can be fixed by setting Dolphin's resolution to 640 by 480 (native).
"Unable to stretch data to buffer"
This bug occurs when setting EFB scale to "Auto (Fractional)", and running Dolphin Windowed instead of Fullscreen, at native resolution or lower (640 by 480).
"Scrubbing Sirena Beach" Immediate Completion
Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.
|Off||If set differently, the goo/oil in the game will behave oddly and be impossible to spray away|
|Off||In many areas it causes mirage doubles on many objects|
