    Game changer: the group that brought you Wii and Gamecube games upscaled to HD has discovered how to BOOST THE FRAMERATE of such 30 FPS classics as Mario Sunshine. If you watch the video, I think you have to be on chrome to get 60 fps. Maybe Team Dolphin needs to fix Firefox next.

    Also, Team Dolphin has been drastically successful getting more and more games working, most recently Rogue Squadron 2.

    My dirty console peasant eyes does not agree with 60fps.

    On-Topic: Looks really really good.

    Saw that yesterday, some games definitely see a huge improvement with a higher FPS, and Sunshine looks like it plays a hell of a lot better from the video alone. Gonna give this a try with a few other games.

    Is it possible to modify the Iso for Devolution or Dios Mios?

    ...no. The modifications aren't made to the ISO, it's from the emulator. You have to set custom speedhack, you have to modify the game audio timings, and some games require a 300-400% "overclock" of the Gamecube's hardware...which a Wii, Wii U, or a GC couldn't do.

    Just read a technical analysis of some of the 60fps stuff. Looks like there might be some interesting hacking going on there, if I did not feel so meh about 60fps as a concept in games, much less gamecube and wii games, then I might have to try my hand at it.

    Wait, so is this different from the patches? Before Sunshine and Pikmin 2 required you to edit the game itself, which would be technically more than "emulator achieves it all on its own".

    I'd be down for that, but that's not what I'm familiar with.

    Yeah but what kind of hardware do you need for this?
    So now that they get 60 fps on a high end
    Are they going to work on getting 30 fps on say a shield tablet?
    Any enhancements for android lately ?

    Can't wait to finally play Sunshine now, this is beautiful, and with the Mayflash adapter coming in soon and the fact that I finally figured out how to OC my CPU :P this should be great.

    I guess that's a bit like being used to microwave meals and not liking real ones because they are too different.

    I'd love to see Crash Bandicoot the Wrath of Cortex; they botched the Gamecube port as it runs 60 fps then drops to 30 in many parts of the game due to it being rushed. The PS2 port, which runs on weaker hardware, didn't seem to have any trouble running full speed.
