The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures is a video game in Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series. It was released for the Nintendo GameCube in Japan on March 18, 2004; in North America on June 7, 2004; in Europe on January 7, 2005; and in Australia on April 7, 2005. The Game Boy Advance hand held game console can be used as a controller when using the Nintendo GameCube Game Boy Advance Cable bundled with the game in North America.

Problems

Resizing the Window (DX9)

Switching between full-screen and windowed mode, or even just resizing the window in DirectX9 will make some textures, especially Link, invisible. This does not happen on OpenGL/DX11 plug-in

FIFO Errors

FIFO errors may occur, which mean that Watermark Tightness needs to be increased in the game properties (right click on the game). Revise to a value more than 100 till the errors go away.

Configuration

This title does not need non-default settings to run properly.

Gameboy Player

Gameboy connection support can be supported via joybus emulation. You will need VBA-M (r947 or newer) and a dump of GBA BIOS (see here an excellent dump guide). To connect GBA:

  1. Launch Dolphin (only r6059 or newer will work, in older revisions you can use DSP LLE Plug-in, but it is very slow!)
  2. Start Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures and choose multiplayer
  3. In connection screen, go to Config => GameCube and change the ports to GBA
  4. Launch VBA-M, go to Options => Emulator and uncheck "Pause When Inactive". Then, go to Options => Link => Joybus options, mark "Enable Joybus Connection" and use default settings (127.0.0.1)
  5. When you enable joybus, Dolphin will freeze (don't panic, its ok!). Now load the GBA Bios in VBA-M, after the splash screen Dolphin will recognise the joybus link and game will detect it as a standard GBA.

To connect other GBAs, just repeat last instruction. Remember to unblock Dolphin and VBA-M in your firewall (some firewalls may block joybus link), otherwise Dolphin will stuck in connection screen. If you are in doubt, refer to this video for more details.
