Dolphin Emulator Questions

Hi, I'm new here, but I've been lurking the emulation seen for quite a few years. (I've been slowly making my way up the past generations from NES to N64 and just recently GCN.) ;)

FYI Facts About What I'm Running On:
  • Windows XP SP3 32-Bit
  • 2 GB RAM DDR2
  • NVidia GeForce 6150 LE (Integrated) 256mb
  • AMD64 Athlon 3500+ 2.2Ghz. Single Core
  • I am using Dolphin SVN Build 1590 from Omega.
  • I *might* switch to the latest build as of this post, I always DL from Omega.
  • Using the OpenGL plugin mostly...
  • OptimizeQuantinizers is on.
Okay so anyways, here are my questions...

1. Starfox Assault runs pretty well! There are a few exceptions though, I get freezes during loads to the second-half of the first level of the story mode and several multiplayer levels freeze upon loading. Also, graphical glitches such as some of the radio transmission pics are green and don't animate and the 3D briefings don't even show up. Also, the bosses in the first level have game stopping bugs. Any workarounds or ways to fix any of these?

2. F-Zero GX, any progress?

3. Are the wonderful Developers of Dolphin still working mainly on Gamecube games or are they starting to focus on Wii games more? (Because I'd rather just stick to getting GCN games...)

4. Super Mario Sunshine, any progress?

5. My computer can't run many GCN games at 30fps... any tips to get it more optimized other than buying better hardware? (I'm getting a new comp sometime next year.)

6. Gamecube BIOS, will we ever care? :lol:


Thank you for taking the time to read this! I hope you can answer my questions so I can enjoy the best GCN emulator out there! Also, thanks devs for putting all your hard work into this emu, I may donate sometime next year even if you guys don't finish it! :thumb:

P.S. My sig has all the games I want to run perfectly the most...

go to startup settings, and you basically remove them all
, unless its important to you

Lol I did the MSConfig trick years ago, works like a champ :p
My computer, though outdated by today's standards, still holds up extremely well!

Anyways, I hope someone can answer my questions... would be appreciated. :thumb:

EDIT: So no one has any answers?
