How fares the Dolphin emu today?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Well, after getting a PS3 along with a new (big) LCD screen, I can't play my Wii anymore on "poor" 420p. I've always known there was an emu for Wii and GC but I've been told, in the past, that it was horrible. Now I've found out how far improved it had gotten in the last few years.

I've seen some amazing stuff on youtube: MP3 running 40fps on avarage, Okami running 30fps on avarage, Zelda TP 40fps on avarage, and all scaled way up to 1080p.. I was blown. still, those vidoes were outdated, and I am very curious as to how well dolphin runs games on current hardware? Also, is it still getting patched? Do Okami and Zelda run perfect now?

I personally have never used the dolphin emulator, but from videos I saw on Youtube it seems like if you have a good computer it should run fine.

Especially in lower resolutions.

Bobicon, thank your for the respons. I also think I should be fine as most vids on youtube are running on HD, but I'm not sure how solid the FPS is, and I intend to play on HD res only.. I'd prefer to wait and get a new PC when hardware is strong enough..

Some games run better than others. Even if you have a powerful computer.

If you really wanna enjoy your games at a "higher res" then you can use component video upscalers. Some receiver have this ability as well.

Intresting, could you direct me at such component video upscalers? How do they work? Can you get it to 720p? (can it work with my PS2 as well?)

It will work as long the PS2 has a component out cable.

It says it works with a PS2, thanks for the suggestion but it looks like all it does is converting the signle(?), I imagine it can't really make it look like, for example, POP HD on the PS3..

it works great I love playing SSBM in eyefinity, the downside being that if you want to play online on Kaillera you can only play old crap from N64, because outside of this forums people mostly have Piece of Crap PC's that can't run Dolphin.
