E3 is coming closer and I though you guys would like to see some good screenshots of Wii/GC games. I wanted to make some own screenshots at first, but I ran into some problems and now I've searched for and found some pics in the world wide web. Enjoy!

And BTW, if they're too big, I'll link the pics in the future. I was just too lazy 'cause linking takes more copy+paste. Also, these pics aren't HD.

Dang...those look fantastic. A lot of Wii games look like they were designed for bona-fide HD, but are simply forced to run in 480p - seriously, not even all Xbox 360 games look as good as Metroid Prime 3 there. And what do you mean they're not HD? They totally are. :D

Attaching them is the preferred way to go, btw - that way, we're not relying on third-party servers to keep the thread looking good.

I have an epic power computer at home which can actually handle Wii and GameCube emulation at full 1080p. Any requests for specific games you'd like some kickass HD screenshots of (or maybe even a video)?

What I wanted to say is that they're not 1080p with good AA. I once plugged both my Wii and my bro's notebook to my TV and ran Twilight Princess on both - trust me, the difference is even bigger than you might think... it's mind-blowing.

Furthermore, Wind Waker in HD is one of the best-looking games I've ever seen. Many fans might hate the style but WW aged much better than most other games.

BTW, if you're planning on playing your GC/Wii games on a PC/notebook, you've got to get a drive capable of reading the discs. That is, if you don't want your PC to be full of viruses :P
The only request I have is... a complete video walktrough of SMG, SMG2, Z:WW, Z:TP and MP:T. Have fun! :D

Those look awesome! I can't wait for the cafe D:

Now if only someone was doing requests....

Perfect!


I'll take some Skies of Arcadia legends, Samurai Warriors 3 (Preferably xtreme edition), Rune Factory Frontier and RF: Oceans, Harvest Moon Animal Parade and HM: A wonderful life... And...

Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn.

If you could get screens of any/all of those, you will have saved my life, and I will be eternally grateful. *Insert green three-eyed smiley*

Some great looking screenshots there. How do you emulate Wii and Gamecube games on a PC though?

Actually, it's pretty easy. The probably best-known GC/Wii emulator is Dolphin. You download it for free, unzip it and then you're almost ready to play - at least if you are able to dump your games to your PC. To do that, you need a special DVD drive. The drives most commonly used are the GDR-8164b, GDR-8163b, GDR-8162b and GDR-8161b from LG. You can buy them at eBay for approximately 15 - 20 €. There are other drives that can read GC/Wii discs, too, so trying to dump them with your current drive won't hurt. To dump the games you need software like Friidump or Rawdump, which are free. You can also download the .iso files as a torrent, but I personally don't recommend that :D

Well, after that, you can configure your Wiimote to work with your PC (if you've got Bluetooth) or you can use an Xbox360 gamepad. They can be used with PCs AFAIK and Dolphin lets you configure the controls as you like. You can even use your keyboard, but that's not really comfortable. Anyways, I recommend you to visit the Dolphin forums if you're looking for special configurations for a certain game as every game needs other settings to run well. Not to forget that you need a good graphics card for good performance.

The cool thing is, Dolphin supports WiiMotion+ and even 3D! A shame my PC's too slow :P


PS: Err, it REALLY irritates me that IP.Board links all brand names to eBay shop sites. Is this on purpose, Feld0?

Thanks for explaining that. I was wondering why the thread was called "Dolphin Screenshots". :P

As for the links to eBay/Argos/Amazon, I guess their adverts. To be honest, I'm happier having those than having some big adverts at the top and side of every page.

About that, AMAC's assumption is correct...

As for the links to eBay/Argos/Amazon, I guess their adverts. To be honest, I'm happier having those than having some big adverts at the top and side of every page.

As I hope you're aware, running Wii 2 Blog and Wii 2 Boards isn't free. There are many expenses that need to be covered, like hosting, domains, and the IP.Board license. Advertising is pretty much the only way I can finance the site, because I don't want to ever charge people for membership or content.

The links you're seeing have nothing to do with IP.Board, actually - they are automatically generated by a service called Skimlinks. You can read about it on their website if you want to know how it works. The reason I'm using those is because I personally hate huge banner ads, too - those are only visible if you're not logged in.

Hope that clears things up. :P

Well, I already thought that it was something like that. Anyways, it's still better than banner ads. I think I'll be able to bear with it :P

Here are some screens I found at NeoGAF. Enjoy!

Kirby's Epic Yarn and F-Zero GX look friggin' marvelous. The models in the Mario Kart games seem to get a little too blocky for my tastes, though.

Wertville, I'll see what I can do for your requests. In the meantime, I discovered a few glorious Super Mario Galaxy 2 screenshots in my Dolphin folder that I'll post.

Update: Here's a good helping of 47 Kirby's Epic Yarn shots. I'll try to get some Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn pics next. With the help of Bluetooth, Arcai can quite literally act as a Wii HD. The game looks fabulous on the 1.07 billion-colour screen, by the way. :P

I'm currently trying to find a sane way to capture smooth 1080p video of a Wii game. Anyone got any ideas? :D

Tried it, but I think my hard drive's having trouble keeping up with a 1080p video. Maybe I'm just not configuring it correctly?
