ANNOUNCE: Dolphin Now Open Source - EmuTalk.net


---

FAQ:
Q: How do I enable the dynarec or dualcore mode? I dont see it in the GUI...
A: The GUI now uses wxWidgets, many parts have changed. In order to change these settings, open up Dolphin.ini in wordpad and look for these lines:

  • UseDynarec = True
  • UseDualCore = True
  • Throttle = True
First setting is for choosing interperter or dynamic recompiler. Second option is to specifiy the dualcore mode. Last option is the cpu limiter (some people call it a framelimiter but thats not the right word...).

Even though it is stated for these builds of Dolphin that there were no compatibility fixes, at least none that were known I have found some minor things that were fixed.

For example the issue with Sonic Adventure 2 Battle freezing on the City Escape level seems to be fixed for at least the 32-bit version. I played through the entire City Escape level without it freezing or locking up.:)

Windwaker telescope bug appears to be fixed as well.

Using the Dolphin x86 version since the 64-bit compile isn't working, the new OpenGL graphics plugin, and the DSP-Null plugin (For some reason I can't use the normal sound plugin else I get an error).

Just wanted to tell that the dx9 plugin in the Binaries didn't work for me (emu failed to load it), I had to recompile it from the sources for it to work, so if some plugin doesn't work for you I recommend you recompile it yourself. Just in case anyone else had a similar problem....

@daco: keys are set but the "start" doesn't work... the other keys work correctly tho.... I'll check better when I have some time....

is it me or is the new dolphin MUCH Slower?

i set UseDynarec,UseDualcore and Throttle to True,
get around 12 fps average in Zelda Windwaker.

but 30 fps in the old Dolphin 64 Beta 3.

i'm using vista 64 SP1.

Well I managed to get the 64-bit build working on Vista 64-bit, don't know what the problem is with XP-64.

It seems the 64-bit version is no faster than the x86 version and is quite a bit slower in comparison to the last Dolphin 64 Beta 3 release on my machine.

I already enabled Dynarec and Dual core but it doesn't seem to make much of a difference.:(

I think something is fubar'd with the 64-bit compile like it wasn't compiled properly as speed is no different than the x86 version, and it is quite a bit slower than the last Dolphin 64 Beta 3 release as mentioned above.

for me when i used the opengl plugin in zelda WW, it was much slower then with the dx9 plugin, so you could try to change plugins.
