Audio Support (read if you new to dolphin)

Recommended Posts

People keep posting new threads that the sound does not work so here is the thread for those people who are new to dolphin, and that they will not create any more sound issue related threads.


The sound emulation barley works -- it is still in development. The plugin, "Plugin_DSP_HLE.dll", is the best working sound plugin you can use in dolphin. There are a few games where the audio works when using this plugin.


If you want to audio to work in the Zelda games then then click here to read how to get it working, thanks to John Peterson
