Dolphin is a Nintendo GameCube and Wii emulator for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X (Intel/AMD CPU). Its name is derived from the original code name for the GameCube, "Dolphin" in 1999.
Dolphin is considered to be the first GameCube emulator to successfully run commercial games. Following a certain revision, it also became the first emulator to run several Wii games properly.
Notable changes since the last bi-weekly build:
Fixed idle skipping in the JITIL build.
Fix handling of various pad modes Luigi's Mansion finally has correct triggers
Some possibly major speed boosts to the JITIL build (try with ProfiledReJIT = True in [Core] section of Dolphin.ini)
More intuitive scaling/resolution settings for the OpenGL plugin.
Mad hax included to patch Wave Race: Blue Storm
Improvements to Wii file handling: some VC games (Zelda: A Link to the Past!) can succeed where they didn't before.
Also fixed other things, probably too numerous to mention.
OpenGL: fix leaking of fragment shaders
Some improvements to the wii dvd device, can almost boot from wii menu
File platform is shown in the gamelist, and it is a sortable category.
WAD files can be shown in the gamelist
Framelimiter added (from Iulius)
Added ability to tack on custom shaders in the OpenGL plugin.
...And of course, a host of other bugfixes and smaller changes.
