    So, I have a really underpowered computer which can play:
    -PS2 games and below
    -DS games and below
    -PC games like Minecraft (Newest version), Sonic Heroes and other stuff

    But... Dolphin is SLOOOWWWW... I played WarioWare Inc. and it rocked 60VPS (not fps, vps)
    And then I tried Mario sunshine and it "rocked" 43vps (aka around 73%)

    Here are my "specs"
    Intel core 2 Duo CPU 2.53GHz 2.53GHz
    RAM:2GB (1.90GB usable (as if this laptop wasn't slow enough))
    64-bit Windows 7

    I hate how the gamecube was super underpowered


    and the emulator has THESE minimum requirements
    RAM: 100TB
    NVIDIA THINGY 8CORES 7000GHZ EACH

    As you said your specs are what is holding you back. Even a semi modern i3 on integrated graphics would do nicely for GC emulation.

    Can someone please tell me the FASTEST settings? I don't care about glitches and stuff, just speed!
    Because whenever I search it on google and youtube, the only tutorials I get show how to get fps AND nice graphics!

    I just care about VPS, nothing else!

    If someone can write down the fastest settings for VPS, that would be great!

    Vanilla dolphin had some kind of speed

    BUT ishiikura whatever you call it, is like playing fortnite on a 90's computer

    Yeah it's your specs. An i3 550 or 2120 (which are like 8 years old now) can get pretty decent speeds even with integrated graphics (though you should probably use a dedicated GPU for Dolphin).

    Those i3's can play upscaled PS2 though with their crappy HD2000 graphics.

    My dude, we've told you that no matter what settings you use your CPU is going to be a massive bottleneck. If you're not willing to accept that then you're going to be really disappointed with literally any suggestion anyone gives

    As mentioned several times by others, your specs aren't enough to run Dolphin well for many games. Just because you were able to run one game just fine doesn't mean it's going to be the same for others. CPU is very important for emulation and your CPU is not strong enough for Dolphin. You're going to have to buy/build a new PC considering how outdated yours is. You can easily get a decent normal modern laptop that's way faster than what you have and can do more these days.

    Umm it's ok, mario sunshine runs at a decent speed now.
    I think there are slowdowns because of the render distance or... distance.
    Whenever the game doesn't display distant objects (For example: I get into a wall) the VPS goes high
    Is there a hack/patch/code that hides distant objects?

    Once answered, I'll close this thread

    Oh I forgot that I can't close threads in GBAtemp, anyway

    Thanks!

    Correct, the more vertices there are on screen, the harder it will be on your computer to render. And no, I don't believe there are, there's only settings to INCREASE render distance in some games. With a handful of exceptions, Dolphin's default settings really are a best case scenario

    So, what you're trying to say is: I need to switch back to original settings in Dolphin 5.0?

    On a side note, why do you say the GC was super under powered? It was less powerful than the Xbox but significantly more powerful than the PS2.
