Zoda's Revenge runs through nine chapters, although the first is story-only. Each chapter besides the first takes place in a different time and place and holds one or more bosses, multiple areas, many weapons, medicine, obstacles and puzzles. While the original StarTropics took place almost exclusively on a series of tropical islands, its sequel takes place in a variety of locales, such as a caveman era, Ancient Egypt, the Wild West, the Medieval Times, and England in old time periods.

NES Global Problems

[edit]

Problems that may occur with any NES title on Dolphin are listed below.

DirectX with NES Games

Most NES games suffer strange graphical issues when using the DirectX backend with some graphics drivers; notably NVIDIA. This is a driver bug.

As of 5.0-4869, the D3D driver bugs can be worked around by setting Ubershaders to Exclusive. It's unknown what exactly is going on with the driver that's causing Exclusive Ubershaders to work properly.
