Dolphin Requirements

Recommended Posts

======= System Requirements =======

* Operating System: Microsoft Windows (2000/XP/Vista or higher) / Linux / Apple Mac OS X (Intel version).

* Processor: Any Fast CPU with SSE2 supported (recommended at least 2Ghz). Dual Core for speed boost.

* Graphics: Any graphics card that supports Direct3D 9 or OpenGL 2.1. See: *link*


======= Runtime Library Requirements =======

Dolphin needs you have to have the libraries listed below installed.



-MS Visual C++ Runtime 2008 SP1: This fixes the "side by side" / "application config" & model errors

Microsoft VC++ 2008 SP1 Redist x86 - For 32bit Windows

Microsoft VC++ 2008 SP1 Redist x64 - For 64bit Windows


-The DirectX November 2008 Runtime: This fixes the plugin loading errors

Microsoft DirectX Updater



-install libbluetooth: fixes the "PANIC failed to load plugin Plugins/libPlugin_wiimote.so" error for linux users


======= Video Card Requirements =======

You must have a video card that support OpenGL 2.x fully or Direct3D 9.0c.


Note: The Direct3D9 video plugin is old/outdated and it looks like it doesn't work anymore. We recommend using the Dolphin OpenGL Video plugin for better video emulation.


Note: Make sure your drivers are up to date!
