    Hello, and I am wondering if it possible to emulate GameCube games on the 3ds and if there are any working emulators already, please post links to them. Thank you very much.

    Technically it's possible. But it would be unplayably slow. Even New 3DS doesn't have the horsepower to emulate an N64, let alone a GC. Also, it would be very difficult to control as the GC controller has many more buttons than the 3DS, and some games also take advantage of the GC controller's unique layout.

    I said it's technically possible. I didn't say it's going to happen. Seriously, it wouldn't be worth it so don't bother waiting. Nobody is going to invest the time it would take to port a GC emulator to 3DS when it would run so badly. Just play Luigi's Mansion on your GC and/or Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon on your 3DS.

    No it is not possible and due to the hardware of the 3ds it will never happen because the 3DS just can support it.

    but i don't have a game cube. that's why i want to install an emulator.

    There's no way to know that until someone tries to make it.


    Thank you very much.

    Emulating a more powerful console on a less powerful one is never thing that works great, so no one will waste their time trying... Great troll post by the way.

    well as you have already been told "its not feasible" go buy a gamecube or make your own 2 fps emulator, no dev is going to waste their time trying to make a gamecube emulator for the 3DS, and if you can't make it yourself then your in no position to tell others if its possible or not or suggest that it might work if we just dream hard enough

    Well, there are already GC emulators for desktop computers. You'll have to use one of those if you want to play this game. Or buy a GameCube.

    There is. The 3DS is not powerful enough to emulate a GameCube. The host machine (in this case the 3DS) needs to be many, many times more powerful than the original guest machine (in this case the GameCube) in order to function in a useful way, and the 3DS is not powerful enough. If you don't want to read up on the technical reasons for this then you'll just have to take my word for it.

    If you type 'how to install dolphin emulator' into Google, literally the first result is the Wiki page which tells you how to do it.

    Read this for a start, then come back and tell us it's not a big thing to ask.

    Also, read the source code for Dolphin emulator. If you think that looks straightforward, feel free to try to port it to the 3DS.

    I don't mean to be demanding, i'm just saying that this is something that should be made. sorry for the misunderstanding.

    i have tried this many, many times before with no luck and i have given up all hope.

    that's not very nice...

    Thank you very much.

    Ok, well as I and others have said it's really not worth it. It could take months or years to even get it to compile for a 3DS target, and then it would literally run like a slideshow. There's no way of making the 3DS run it faster - it's just down to the limitations of the hardware.

    Well, perhaps if you post the specific problem you are having getting it to work we could help you set it up and get your game running :)
