So have the Dolphin developers done anything in the way of hardware acceleration? I just ask because Gamecube isn't one of the systems I keep tabs on, and it would be interesting to know if it's even worth following since I have no plans on updating my system for a couple years.

I tried checking out the FAQ, and the only thing that was of any interest was this rather baffling tid bit:
OS: Windows XP Pro SP2 / Ubuntu 5.10 CPU: Intel Pentium-m 1,5 Ghz (Dothan) Graphics Card: Intel® Extreme Graphics 2 Memory: SODIMM 1024 MB DDR Sound Card: AC97 Other: Intel® Centrino™ mobile technology
Those are the system specs from an "Official betatester of Dolphin, PCSX2 & GSmax"

Shouldn't there be requirements that your system has to actually _function_ in some modern capacity in order to beta test powerful emulators like Dolphin and PCSX2? You can't possibly run a Gamecube emulator on a glorified calculator like that, and if these are the types of systems being used to test then I fear for the future of emulators.

I think my cell phone is more capable of Gamecube emulation than that guy's PC.

They were already verified by a mod. Yes, they are real.

The problem, as kingis pointed out, is that the FPS will probably still suck. Which is why I'm wondering what the potential for speed is once compatability has been refined.

It's good to have testers with different hardware and software. This way you can examine how your application behaves on different systems and if it has problems with specific configurations.

Also, you could spend some time to check the Dolphin website and verify if someone is really a beta tester before commenting. :p

To start with I am a betatester for this emulator, and I know for a fact that chaoscode is using the same beta as me, the shots are genuine, I have similiar results from those games, and more ;)

I'll probably post some shots on these forums in the comming future, but the 'testing' side of it comes first, that and New Years is comming up, and testing when drunk isn't a good idea ;)

Trust me, they are real. As for the speed. F|res told me to expect a super huge lose with PageTable support added as it really slows stuff down and it does check the screenies speed. As for speeding them up from talking with him he is going for compatiblty and not speed right now. I do know if he see's a easy speed up he goes for it but he is more so working on getting the games to run and then speed them up. More suprises are in the works and stay tuned! :) Ckemu Im looking forward to your shots also. This new beta is really good.

P.S. on the offical page Ckemu and I both are listed as beta testers so before going and calling fake atlest check it out first **coffnevercoffmorecoff**

Unreleased? I say bogus. hahaahaha oh man sorry :p

Yeah I didn't look up the official dolphin homepage to check if you were but seeing the word "unreleased" gives me that very sentence "it'll never be out!", so yeah I am sorry to have doubted those screamshots. :cry:

its ok np I was just messing with yeah. I ment as it is currently a unrelease beta. No one said it wouldnt go public. Thats something thats left up to f|res. I ment unreleased as its a non public beta. Ill try to think of a better thread name for it as I see how that could be confussing! ok back to trying to steal your Arcade Awards :D

Could it be that he only typed "Banned" into the spot where you can type "Custom User Title" under your profile?
