It’s been almost three years since we’ve seen any substantial updates from the project, but the fifth version of the Dolphin emulator is now available for download. For those of you who may not know, Dolphin is an open-source emulator for GameCube and Wii games that allows users to play these games on their PCs with improved graphics, sound, and more. Dolphin 5.0 boasts a wide range of bug fixes and new features, including steroscopic 3D output, faster CPU emulation, and expanded native controller support. It also features a revamped netplay setup that lets users play local multiplayer titles such as Super Smash Bros. Melee online more easily.
There are a ton of other fixes and features included in the update, including fixes for the Z-freeze and ES_Launch glitches; you can check out the full list of changes on Dolphin’s website. They also released a video outlining many of the changes, which you can check out by clicking above!
