Gamecube/Wii- What is needed exactly to run?



  • I can emulate these systems on Win10 fine using Dolphin. But i never needed any Bios/plugins/etc to make it happen. I just needed the Dolphin Emu.

    Recalbox however, seems to require a Bios of some type. I've since made like 7-8 attempts to download bios files from various sites. No luck, i can't get anything to run, and i'm stumped at the moment. Exactly what kind of Bios/plugin files do i need exactly and, where should they be placed?

    Any help would be appreciated.



  • @SkullGrin hello. You don't need bios... Bios is just to have boot animation . For me Gamecube works perfectly with Recalbox x64...

    Thanks. I tried some again, no luck. Just kicks me out back to the main menu. My Gamecube stuff has .ISO extension and Wii, has .wbfs also. My games work great using Win10 Dolphin emulator.

    Oh, i got it to work now. I didn't do anything besides update Recalbox. Which i already thought i had the latest one but, whatever. I updated when i saw the dialog box pop up.

    The Gamecube and Wii games themselves however, are SLOOOW to start up and SLOOOW to exit back to the menu. When actually running the games appear to be fine but, have lots of occasional "freeze" points. Overall, a buggy experience. Hopefully that's corrected in future updates.

    My Pc uses a Ryzen 5 3400g w/Vega 11 iGPU by the way (and 16GB 2666mhz, Dual-Channel Ram).



  • @SkullGrin make sure you have the latest version of recalbox installed



  • Found another bug: Gamecube & Wii refuse to load without my gamepad plugged in. Often when adding new stuff and no intent on actually playing anything at the moment? I might not have my gamepad plugged in and just using keyboard instead to test things out. Gamecube & Will? Nope, it auto-kicks me back to the main menu as soon as i select a game. The games only run when a pad is plugged in. I think this is the only system that does that.

    I'm using the 64-bit Pc version of Recalbox also. Not sure if i mentioned that earlier.
