    I keep trying to play Super Mario Sunshine because my copy was stolen and it has a super fast frame rate during cut scenes, and a 19-21 frame rate during game play! Is there any way to get this to run better?

    You want it to run better? The best option: Get a better computer.

    Dolphin is very resource intensive. You definitely need a good PC to run it properly.

    Also note that it's more CPU heavy than it is GPU heavy, meaning you should upgrade your processor first of all.
