How good is dolphin (emulator)

#1mexicannonPosted 10/8/2013 4:33:21 PM
I've heard that you can play most games at 1080p and 60fps. You can also connect wii controllers and play. That seems amazing, and I could get all the wii games I could never afford/or play. Also, could this set up play Brawl at 1080p and 60 fps?

I7 4470 up to 3.9 ghz
16gb dual channel DDR3
1.5gb Nvidia 760gx

Yes with that setup it will easily work. Heck I underclocked my 4770k to 3.0ghz and still has no problems.

Here is a video, on almost max settings only 4xantialiasing, though it doesn't look as good on youtube.

You can easily get 60fps in Brawl. I would try to overclock some more if you can. Some games are really intensive and require a really high overclock.

why people keep asking about emulators?

Because people want to play Wiigames at 1080p, instead of that crappy 480p.

Assuming you have the PC for it, which you do, yes everything you say is true. And Brawl looks amazing at 1080p and using the custom texture pack.

Dolphin is really great. TONS of games work extremely well, and on your machine they'll look great. My only grumble is there are still some unsupported games..

Thanks guys, but one last thing. How exactly do you connect a wii/gamecube controller? Is it bluetooth or something? And you can adjust the controls on the keyboard whatever way you like right?

For a Wii controller you need 1) a sensor bar, 2) a bluetooth sensor for your PC, and 3) The Wii bluetooth stack. It takes a little setting up but it's not horribly difficult. I just use an Xbox 360 controller, it works for what I need it for.
