    After many svn revisions (30% of my bandwidth was downloading updated dolphin source and compiling it >_>), The Dolphin Team has officially released an update. Behold.... THE DOLPHIN 2.0 RC1!!! *star wars theme music plays here* anyways, the latest update of the emulator is mostly a stable release to test out the new improvements in anticipation of its first release since becoming open source software.

    Fantastic news really, but there's still a lot of development to be done. [​IMG]

    So, there is an OS X version? I can't find it through the links that are provided.

    Anyone know if there even is one?

    A lot of people think Dolphin is slow because they just use the default settings.
    If you want it to run fast, use the Direct3D9 plugin and enable EFB copy to texture!
    If you don't see the plugin, update DirectX!

    If only my computer wasn't so dead old, I'd be able to play at least like 10 FPS.
    I'll bug my friend to try it, I guess.

    Cool, I'm definitely installing this update.
    Always handy to test if a GC game is good enough to burn for my Wii, and if languages aren't a problem.

    I know this can read the system menu, but can you run a virtual NAND? Like a bootmii dump or one set up for Triiforce?

    This is great news, one day the Dolphin emulator will be great for GCN games as Visualboy Advance is for GBA games.

    What is the problem with the games? The plugins should come with the emulator. They are in the Plugins directory (within your main Dolphin emulator's directory) and include-
    Plugin_DSP_HLE.dll
    Plugin_DSP_LLE.dll
    Plugin_GCPad.dll
    Plugin_nJoy_SDL.dll
    Plugin_PadSimple.dll
    Plugin_VideoDX9.dll
    Plugin_VideoOGL.dll
    Plugin_VideoSW.dll
    Plugin_Wiimote.dll

    If they don't show up, you need to update directx online. As for your games, Dolphin still isn't 100% perfect compatibility. A considerable amount of games will not load at all. What games are you trying to load?

    Did you know you can even connect Visual Boy Advance to Dolphin, and emulate the GBA->GCN connection?
    How awesome is that?
