Dolphin is an emulator for two current Nintendo video game consoles: the GameCube and the Wii. It is very compatible with most titles for both platforms. It was first developed as closed source in 2003 and as open source since 2008.
With Dolphin, PC gamers can enjoy games for these two consoles in Full HD (1080p) with several improvements: compatibility with all PC controllers, turbo speed, networked multiplayer and much more!
It started out solely as a GameCube emulator that only focused on the one console. When the Wii was released and it was found that the hardware was almost identical to that of its older sibling, Dolphin naturally evolved into a GameCube and Wii emulator. All of our readers are probably familiar with it. However, many people do not realize that there is another console based on the GameCube that has emulated Dolphin – the Triforce. The Triforce, an arcade system board developed in a joint partnership between the three powerhouses Namco, Sega and Nintendo, used the GameCube hardware as the heart of many arcade games. Mario Kart GP and GP2, F-Zero AX, as well as many other titles are in the release library of the Triforce.
Welcome to the Dolphin Progress Report for December 2020 and January 2021! Because of some technical details we had to work out for some of these entries, things went back a little for this report. We on the blog team are familiar with the emulator, but there are many technical details that are simply beyond our expertise. It is enough to go from things like the AArch64 JIT to GUI changes to IOS updates to game patches resulting in low level hardware behavior to turn everyone’s heads! Most of the time, we rely on core developers and the authors of a particular change to understand what a pull request does so that we can pinpoint its purpose here on the blog.
Since the progress reports are mostly every two months at this point, this means that authors have sometimes moved on to other topics or are not available to speak. As a blog about emulation, one of our top priorities is to correct these details about the various changes and how the emulator works. We hope you enjoy this belated Dolphin Progress Report!
