Wii Sports Resort (Wii スポーツ リゾート, Wii Supōtsu Rizōto) is a sports video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Wii video game console, and is the successor to Wii Sports. It is one of the first titles to require the Wii MotionPlus accessory, which is bundled with the game. While the game was originally released only as a stand-alone title, as of 2009 the game is bundled with newer Wii consoles, along with Wii Sports.
Wii Sports Resort is a collection of twelve sports games, which includes enhanced games from Wii Sports along with completely new selections, designed to take advantage of the motion sensing capabilities of the Wii Remote, Wii MotionPlus, and Nunchuk. Like Wii Sports, players mimic the actions performed in real life sports, but they are played with greater accuracy thanks to the precision of the Wii MotionPlus.
Manual bowling controls are inaccurate in emulated Bluetooth with current Dolphin builds. During a swing in manual mode, the timing of the ball's release is different compared to the timing on the Wii. It may be possible to adjust to the different timings, but it makes the game very difficult to play. Automatic bowling controls are unaffected. See . Bluetooth Passthrough will resolve this issue overall.
Wii Remotes randomly disconnect if "Enable Speaker Data" is on. Disable it to correct the problem. Bluetooth Passthrough with a decent adapter does not have this issue.
Unable To Detect Wii Motion Plus
Wii Motion plus may not be detected when using the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack or the Mayflash DolphinBar. To resolve this problem you may have to have a Wii Nunchuck inserted into the remote as the game is being booted. Bluetooth Passthrough will resolve this issue overall.
With EFB Copies to Texture Only disabled, a pixelated box of varying sizes will appear during some games. Use EFB Copies to Texture Only to remove the pixelated box, however a black line may appear on top of where the box would be. This seems to be fixed since at least.
Banding/Pixelated Shading at IR>1
Shading will look weird when playing with an IR>1, almost as if it's pixelated. Set Texture Filtering to Force Linear to resolve it.
Misaligned 2D UI Elements at IR>1
Various 2D UI elements become misaligned at IR>1 (with the issue becoming more evident at 3x IR and higher). Turn on Vertex Rounding to resolve it.
HD Texture Packs
Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.
|Force Linear||Fixes shading for IR>1|
|On||Fixes misaligned UI for IR>1|
The graph below charts the compatibility with Wii Sports Resort since Dolphin'srelease, listing revisions only where a compatibility change occurred.
This title has been tested on the environments listed below:
|Windows 7||Intel Core i5-750||AMD Radeon HD 6950||Good 50-60FPS|
|Windows 7||Intel Core i5-2500K||AMD Radeon HD 6870||Good 60FPS 1080p 2.0 native||REALIZE|
|Windows 8||AMD FX 6300 @ 4.3 GHz||AMD Radeon HD 6450||Errors in the Mii's faces shown often. Some minor slowdowns. Playable. Motion Plus need to calibrate often.||Faefdsedf|
|Windows 10||Intel Core i7-4770k @ 4 GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960||Runs perfect @ 4k / Motion Plus needs to be calibrated every once and a while||yuGmooDehT|
|Windows 10||Intel Core i7-6700K @ 4 GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080||Playable. With Dual Core, Mii faces are disappearing in some (oftenly results, win, level) screens. Needs 'Force Texture Filtering' for banding/pixelated shading problems on Mii characters. Recommended a real Wii Remote Plus (or Wii Remote with Motion Plus accessory) to play. Tested with D3D11, 3x IR, DSP LLE.||SuperSonic|
|Windows 10||Intel Core i5-4670K @ 4.3 GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060||Perfect with 60FPS and no graphical issues with Force texture filtering at higher IR. Using Dual Core, DX12, 3x IR, 4xSSAA and EFB to texture only. Didn't have Mii face issue, though they would dissapear when changing graphics settings. Also couldn't reproduce pixelated box issue. WiiMotion+ emulation is ok in most cases but a few games are very hard to play. Performance can be increased by enabling 'ignore format changes', to fix the blue box due to this can, enable 'disable fog'.||Miksel12|
|Windows 10||Intel Core i5-7200U @ 2.5 GHz||Intel HD Graphics 620||Perfect.||Jack|
