Hey ein deutscher :D
ok da dein english nich so gut is helf ich dir ma auf deutsch. Also zuerst mal ist Revision 3972 alt. Hol dir ne neuere wie z.B. 4470. Dann benutz das D3D plugin is nämlich schneller. Und sag mal obs dann geht ok. Und versuch es mal mit der IL Version kann manchmal ganz hilfreich sein.

english:
Hey a german :D
ok since your english isn't that good i'll help you in german. First Revision 3972outdated. Download a newer one like 4470. And remember to us D3D Plugin because it's faster. After that tell me if it worked ok. And also try the IL Version it's better in some cases

The D3D plugin is already installed with the emulator. If you dont see it in the drop down menu, in config>Plugins.graphics, you need to update directx. For fixes to the "failed to grab 1gb of contiguous memory" error search the forums.

If you wanna update your DirectX go to Microsoft page. But if you can already see the D3D plugin in the Dolphin plugins options you should be able to use it (which means you don't need to uptade DirectX).
About the "Failed to grab..." error. Well you can't fix it on SOME PCs. For example I have an older PC with WinXP32bit and it also has this error. I've done everything that was mentioned in this forum and nothing worked. I was never able to try Dolphin on this PC so... yeah it's not going to work on every PC.

For the "Failed to grab 1GB of contiguous memory" error, try following the advices listed in this old thread.
Besides, the error might have to do with Kaspersky 2009's modules... or maybe just because you have too low memory...

BTW if you guys wondered the game is finishable from start to the end. I Just did it yesterday. Well there are some graphic bugs here and there (Paper effect, if there are many enemies you can't see 'em)and the sound isn't always there but thats not important for me. The game looks much better on PC and is IMO funnier than on GC/Wii. So yeah I can just tell everybody who loves this game as much as me...play it and hf ;)

I got my Paper Mario from Saturn. It's a gaming shop with all kind of games and PC stuff. Are you sure you are using the D3D plugin ? For me the graphics are almost perfect. What kind of graphic bugs are there anyway ? Could you post a screen ?

See the page of issues of Dolphin in its official Google Code; they say that the r4468 is the culprit of corrupt graphics in Paper Mario: TTYD. :mad:
