Well, I wanted to start a thread with slightly more information in it than the usual "help how do I get dolphin to run faster" type thing. So, here goes...

I downloaded 2 roms so far. Both are Metroid Prime 3. However, one rom runs at half the speed of the other. I tried it on the same emulators with the same settings, and I also tried it on different emulators. Why is this?

(Note: I might download a 3rd rom to see if it runs faster, if anyone has a link that would be great, since it is a 4gb torrent and it took 3 days to download.)

On youtube, every video says it runs at 40-60 fps. But when I run it it only runs at 14-25 fps. Even if actual fps is twice that much its still only 30-50 fps, usually 35. Is that because the rom is faulty or my computer? I have a Dual Core 2.8 ghz proccesor, a Nvidia GeForce 8800 OC with all graphics set to low quality. I also have 3 GB DDR ram and windows Vista x86 32 bit.

Why does each new revision of Dolphin suck more? Metroid Prime 3 doesnt run on revisions NEWER? than 3364. Also, it won't let me frameskip in new versions. Wtf is up with this? Why cant I have the simple and useful features from Dolphin 1?

Also, Why is there red texture everywhere. Even on youtube vids I see this. In cutscenes and in Hud there is red texture for no reason, it makes it hard to see the cutscenes... and I juggled every gfx option there was and couldnt fix it.

Other than that the game works fine.

We won't get support for you, because you downloaded the game. Read the rules. :mad:
