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.
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 if "Force Texture Filtering" is enabled.
- Bubbles in goo are rendered oddly regardless of configuration, refer .
Durian Physics Glitch in older revisions
On older revisions 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).
"Scrubbing Sirena Beach" Immediate Completion
In builds before . Since the challenge can't be finished at all. There's experimental code in the d3d11_pixelmetrics branch, which fixes the issue and makes the challenge beatable. Set the DisablePixelPerf variable in the Hacks section of the d3d11 configuration file to True to enable the necessary functionality., when starting the level talk to the guy and hear a strange "beep". Talk to him again and he gives the Shine without doing anything else. Refer
Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.
|Off||If enabled, the goo/oil slide across surfaces and erase itself|
|Off||In many areas it causes mirage doubles on many objects|
|ALSA (Linux only)||On Ubuntu, use the ALSA back end for best results. Sound is choppy when using the PulseAudio back end, even when emulation speed is at 100%.|
The graph below charts the compatibility with Super Mario Sunshine since Dolphin'srelease, listing revisions only where a compatibility change occurred.

The goo renders fine with EFB copies set to RAM. GMSE01.ini overwrites default Dolphin configuration to use RAM, so if you start the game up with EFB copies on Texture, it still uses RAM, unless you change your settings in game play.||Shonumi|
