The Best Gamecube & Wii Emulation You’ve Ever Seen On Any Console! Xbox Series S/X

Last Updated on January 25, 2023 by Detective Dev

So yeah I mean either on the Xbox series S or the X this is definitely some of The best GameCube and Wii emulation I've Seen out of a pre-built system so far What's going on everybody it's ETA Prime Back here again and today we're going to Be taking a look at some GameCube and Wii emulation on the Xbox series s now This will also work on the X but I Personally prefer using the S given the Price and form factor but either way you Look at it you're going to get amazing Performance out of either of those Consoles now one thing you might notice Here is I've got the Dolphin Emulator I've also got a PS2 emulator right here On my dashboard and that's because I'm In retail mode now this will work in Dev Mode but personally I prefer using Retail mode because I really don't like Swapping back and forth and if I head Over to my games and apps you'll notice That I've got duck station installed I've got retro Arch I've got Fly cast so I've got a lot of emulators installed on This and you can definitely get this up And running in retail mode if you want To everything you need to know is over On gamer 13's Discord I'll leave a link In the description to this GitHub page This will take you over to the Discord You need to read through everything but There's some great information over There but if you don't want to deal with

Discord and go the retail route you can Always go with Dev mode and that's Really because we've got an awesome Dolphin Port known as dolphin uwp from Sir Mangler over on GitHub you can Download this and install it the dev Mode route if you want to you can Actually get this up and running quite Easily and you know for the longest time We've been able to run GameCube and Wii Games using retroarch on our Xboxes but You've never seen performance like this This is a standalone Dolphin Emulator Ported specifically over to the Xbox and Like I mentioned it's known as dolphin Uwp so we've got a really simple Interface right now but it is functional I'm running all of my games from a USB Drive in fact all of my files are Running from a USB right now and I've Got a bunch installed I wanted to test Out some harder to run games you know That don't work very well on lower end Systems so that's exactly what we're Going to be doing in this video now There are a few things to note here if You do get this up and running you will Have to configure your controllers on a Windows PC and then transfer the dolphin Ini over to your USB drive unfortunately There's no controller configuration Built into dolphin uwp just yet and it's Got a very simple interface once we get Games I mean we've got a few settings

That we can mess around with but uh Hopefully in the future we get a proper UI for this because it's working Amazingly and it definitely deserves it Every time you start up a game it will Have to pre-compile these shaders here It takes a little bit of time and I've Noticed that from an SSD it's going to Work a lot faster I'm just running from A 64 gigabyte SanDisk USB drive it's an Older one so it's a bit slow it is 3.0 But it's uh older gen so if I had a Little bit of a faster SSD or something Like that we can compile these a bit Quicker but once we get in the game if We press our left analog stick and our View button which is also known as the Back button on the Xbox controller it's Going to bring up our menu now there's Not much to mess around with here we can Change the resolution and with every Game that I'm going to be testing in This video we're going to be at 1440p And we can also set out and we can also Set the location of our configuration File and this is where we're going to Transfer our dolphin ini from our Windows PC over to the USB drive so It'll automatically create that folder For you that way you've got your Controller setup and you're ready to go Now obviously I started out with a Really hard game to emulate we've got Rogue Squadron 2 and I've got it muted

Right now just because you know Copywritten music but we're going to get Into a little bit of gameplay and see How this performs now remember we're at 1440p right now on the Xbox series s Okay so here it is FPS is up in the top Left-hand corner I just had to edit the Ini to show FPS equals true we've got That set up so uh we're at 60 and if You're into GameCube emulation you know How hard this one could be to run on Lower end systems now I'm not saying That the series s is a low end system But it's definitely an inexpensive System and with this new Port of dolphin Versus the old retro Arch we are getting Absolutely amazing performance with Basically everything that I've tested I've only gone up to 1440p not exactly Sure if we could edit the ini and go to 4K because like I mentioned this monitor Is only 1440p but they look great like This and this is really all I need Foreign Moving over to some Wii emulation Remember the Dolphin Emulator supports GameCube and Wii one of my favorite Fighting games tatsunoko versus Capcom 1440p this is one of those games that With a lot of particles on screen it can Give your system a run for its money but Even when pulling off these special Moves the series s Powers right through It and yeah I mean it's just really

Awesome to be playing tatsunoko versus Capcom on an Xbox Oh my God foreign Next one I wanted to test was Need for Speed underground too and to tell you The truth back in the day I didn't play This much on the GameCube I personally Preferred the PS2 version and this one Is really hard to emulate for lower end CPUs now even on my high end rig I still Get dips and that's got a 3080 ti so I Do think a lot of this performance comes Down to you know the emulator Optimization for this game itself I've Never really been able to achieve Perfect performance out of this game Here on basically any hardware I've ever Tested But I'll tell you what one of the best Racing games that came out for the GameCube performs amazingly on the Series s automotolista 1440p 60fps and I Made sure it was raining with the stage Here because uh once we get out here You'll see what I'm talking about the Rain does add more effects on screen and Even at 1440p we've got more than enough Power to play this game And of course we had to take a look at F-zero GX now the initial stage the very First stage in this game does perform Really well on a lot of different Systems lots of particle effects I mean It's just a crazy track and on lower end

CPUs this can really struggle I mean run It like 40 FPS stuttering all the way Through but on the series s not a dip I Haven't seen it drop under 60 FPS at 1440p I mean this is really awesome And the way all of these games performed At 1440p I wouldn't doubt that a lot of The stuff would run at 4k on the series S quite well I'm gonna have to try that Down the road but really I mean 1440p is Upscaled way more than the original GameCube and it does make these games Look really good Overall this new Port of dolphin is Miles Ahead of the retroarch core so I Would highly suggest swapping over to This if you've already got everything Set up on your Xbox it's just gonna make A much better experience when it comes To playing GameCube and Wii games I'm Personally really excited to see what Happens next with this uh UI would be Really nice and you know full Configuration from within the Application would be awesome but you Know if I had to deal with it like this I'd be fine with it because we're Getting some really great performance And it's really not all that hard to set Up I'd like to know your thoughts in the Comments below what did you think about The performance here I've yet to test it On the series X but I'm sure we'd get Better performance at least when

Upscaling we really don't need better Performance at 1440p because like we saw I mean everything's running at full Speed already but that's gonna wrap it Up for this video really appreciate you Watching if you're interested in trying This out in Dev mode or even retail I'll Leave some links in the description for Retail I would highly suggest checking Out gamer 13's Discord and if you just Want to pick up the uwp you can get it From Sir manglers GitHub if you've got Any questions or if you want to see any Other emulators running on the series s Or series X just let me know in the Comments below like always thanks for Watching
