    Dolphin Emulator, the most popular (and pretty much only good) GC and Wii emulator has reached their latest milestone, 5.0! It's been ~3 years since the release of 4.0, and during that time there have been thousands and thousands of fixes for games of all kinds. Dolphin 5.0 re-adds support for stereoscopic output, official zFreeze support, official ES_Launch support (so you can play those lovely, lovely masterpieces on Super Smash Bros Brawl!), improved Netplay and more!

    With this new release, the requirements have changed:
    You can check out the full-ish "changelog" here, and as always you can grab the emulator itself at Dolphin Emu's official website.

    No, the Android version is still marked as 4.0 and isn't up to "5.0" standards, according to the devs.

    Looks like Twilight Princess now runs full speed without the "Hyrule Field" patch active, so saw an immediate improvement there. Skyward Sword ran a little better, but it still tends to stutter when new sounds are activated. (So I will still use a special 4.x build for that one)

    Are you not aware of virtual console? That is how nes, snes games are played, and no, gba uses a emulator to connect like the chao garden in sonic advance and sonic adventure 2 battle

    ok, so I have to load the .wad (VC games) for NES/SNES and such, right? why won't I use the standalone NES/SNES emulators? what is the advantage of dolphin NES/SNES VC emulation?
