Dolphin iconDolphin 4.0.2 / 4.0-63

A free, open source and powerful GameCube and Wii emulator software for Linux/UNIX
Dolphin is an open source and 100% free graphical software that emulates Wii and Gamecube software and games. It comes with built-in tools for things like compressing GameCube games and managing GameCube memory cards.

The Dolphin Emulator software also emulates the GameCube Action Replay engine. Wii compatibility is also provided, with supports for a lot of games, but it requires a bit more computing power than GameCube emulation.

Triforce compatibility is not really known yet, but at least one game runs, with minor glitches.

Dolphin Emulator supports the following types of games: GameCube Game Disc, Wii Game Disc, Wii Downloadable Games / Virtual Console, and Triforce Arcade games.

With support for the Xbox 360 controller and full HD (1080p) resolution, Dolphin is the perfect choice for hard core and old-school gamers alike.

Dolphin is a platform-independent application, supporting the Linux, Mac OS X and Windows operating systems.

What's New in version 4.0
  • Beta support for the Wii official online multiplayer (Documentation):
  • This is a feature that has been coming for a long time. More than two years ago, Matthew Parlane and Shawn Hoffman started working on emulating the Wii Wi-Fi networking API in order to run Wii online multiplayer games inside Dolphin. While it was not an easy change in itself, it also required a lot of modifications to core components of the emulator to be implemented properly (for example asynchronous IPC HLE) and a lot of debugging. It is now working well enough that we are releasing it to the public as a beta: don't expect everything to work, but popular games like Mario Kart Wii or Super Smash Bros Brawl can be played online right now.
  • Alpha support for ARM/Android:
