    Can somebody that doesn't get full speed on Mario Sunshine run Mario Sunshine, then run NSMBW and tell me which one had a higher frame rate?

    Mario Sunshine runs at around 7-9 fps (in Delphino Isle) and Mario Kart Double Dash runs around 20 fps on my computer. This is with closing down all non-system processes and using 7GB of my SD Card for Readyboost (before using readyboost SMS ran at a firm 5fps).
    How well do you guys think it'd be able to do NSMBW?

    What are your specs? Dolphin relies heavily on the CPU and as such, needs a beefy CPU to run at full speed.

    I know that feel. My CPU is powerful enough but ASUS thought it would be funny to throttle the CPU on the M4A series motherboard. The result is, CPU throttles down to 1.5GHz and emulation slows down from 60fps to at least 20fps. And i realized i went off topic with my problems

    Well, I figured it out on my own. NSMBW runs at around 30fps, which is much higher than SMS's 7-9fps. But it IS still half speed so it's still unplayable.

    Use some frameskip. ;) I'd call 30FPS anything but unplayable.

    30fps is unplayable because 60 fps is full speed, which makes it half speed.

    Getting a new CPU is really the only way to get full speed. Old CPUs can only do so much, and the Gamecube/Wii has very complex hardware.

    Super Mario Sunshine uses FB effects for the wavy lines. Turn it off to run faster, but at the expense of less visual effects.
