Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars is a crossover fighting game developed by Eighting and published by Capcom for the Wii gaming console. Tatsunoko vs. Capcom is Capcom's seventh installment in its Vs. series, which includes the Marvel vs. Capcom and Capcom vs. SNK games. A first version of the game was originally released exclusively in Japan for video arcades and the Wii in December 2008. Fan reception of the game incited Capcom to localize an updated version with help from Tatsunoko Production to deal with licensing issues involving the Tatsunoko characters.
Shader Compilation Stuttering
Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars is one of the most susceptible titles to shader compilation stuttering. The GC and Wii have no concept of shaders - everything is executed directly by the hardware without an intermediate programming language (API). Modern computers and mobile systems do not work in this way, requiring the use of shaders as an intermediary so your system's GPU can perform the tasks that the GC and Wii GPU performed directly. Shaders have to be generated though, and since GC/Wii games are not designed to create shaders ahead of time as a PC game would, when a new effect appears Dolphin has to delay the CPU thread while the GPU thread performs the compilation; a pause that does not exist on the consoles. For most games shader generation takes only a few milliseconds, but for a few demanding titles, the shaders that they generate are so large that they can result in noticeable stuttering, in severe cases pauses of over a second may occur.
Since ubershaders. Changing GPU, updating GPU drivers, or updating Dolphin may invalidate the shader cache, requiring specialized shaders to be compiled again., this problem can be solved by enabling
